Super Pill No.2 – Cutting Edge Anti-Aging Formulation…
What is a super pill?
There is a long tradition of “super pills” in the Orient. But only the rarest of the rare formulations have been called a “super pill.” A super pill is by definition a breakout formulation made from the most extraordinary materials, and that powerfully supports our health and supports one’s higher state of mind. Usually, the preparation of a super pill is in its own right an exercise of the extreme technology of the era.
What is Super Pill No.2?
Ron Teeguarden’s Super Pill No.2 is one of those rarest of the rare formulations. It is made from materials that are so rare and technologically superior that the product is virtually non-duplicable.
It is made using the most advanced nutraceutical technology in the world to assure purity, potency and efficacy. And it has been produced with naturally derived ingredients, extracted from the most powerful tonic herbs known to mankind.
Super Pill No.2 is based simultaneously on both modern and traditional principles. It is based on cutting edge scientific research in the fields of longevity, cellular biology and aging. And simultaneously it is based on the sanctified traditions of Chinese tonic herbalism, the most sophisticated herbal system in the world. It has been produced with ingredients obtained from Di Tao sources acknowledged to be the best sources of each of the herbs, and manufactured using pharmaceutical technologies and by Fingerprint Identity Transfer Technology™ (FITT™), the most advanced nutraceutical, herbal technology in the world. With FITT™, the HPLC fingerprint of the finished extract is virtually identical to the fingerprint of the freshly harvested herb.
Ron Teeguarden has developed numerous tonic formulations, most using the ultimate herbs on earth. Many could be considered “super pills,” but only one has previously received that title. But this formulation stands out, and deserves the title Super Pill No.2.
What’s in Super Pill No.2?
Super Pill No.2 is composed of three cutting edge nutraceutical compounds and five whole herb supertonic extracts (FITT™), woven together into a perfectly balanced formulation. Together, they make perfect sense in terms of the traditional Three Treasures System of Oriental herbalism, tonifying all three Treasures (Jing, Qi and Shen), and they are powerfully adaptogenic. At the same time, their properties take full account of the major theories of aging currently recognized by researchers in the fields of aging, metabolic health and gerontology.
- Astragaloside IV (a saponin derived from Astragalus membranaceus root)
- Total Astragalosides (the complete total saponins from Astragalus root)
- Total Gypenosides (the complete total saponins from Gynostemma leaf)
- Full Spectrum Gynostemma Non-Saponin Extract (the constituents of Gynostemma that are not saponins)
- Trans-Resveratrol (Pure-Trans Resveratrol™)
- FITT™ full-spectrum whole herb extraction of the following:
o Astragalus root
o Gynostemma leaf
o Asian Ginseng root
o Tibetan Rhodiola root
o Polygonum multiflorum (He Shou Wu) root
Astragaloside IV is one of the ultimate nutraceuticals developed in the world in the modern nutraceutical era. It has many functions, including most of those traditionally associated with Astragalus root. Astragalus root is one of the elite tonic herbs in Chinese herbalism. It is safe for almost everyone and is a gentle giant among tonics. It ranks alongside Ginseng as the premier Qitonic of Chinese herbalism.
Astragaloside IV is a potent immune system-modulating tonic. It has been shown in human and animal studies to support the normal, healthy functions of the immune system when consumed in the doses suggested for this formula. It has been used in Asia for over a decade and its safety has been well established. It is NOT a drug and should not be used to treat, cure, prevent or mitigate any disease. It is a dietary supplement to promote normal, healthy functions and structural integrity.
Astragaloside IV is being investigated for its function as a substance that can support the maintenance of telomere integrity. Telomeres are the end caps on chromosomes. They tend to shorten during one’s lifespan as a person naturally ages. Maintaining and supporting telomere integrity is a primary function of healthy cells.
Astragaloside IV is also being investigated (in the United States) for its ability to support normal neurological functions and structural integrity.
It has been shown in Chinese studies, where it was discovered and developed, that Astragaloside IV works significantly better when combined with other Astragalus components, including a full spectrum of Astragalosides (Total Astragalosides). For that reason, the Astragaloside IV has been extracted to 50%, so that the other 50% of the extract represents a full spectrum of other Astragalus root components. It is further blended with FITT™ Astragalus extract to assure that all components of high quality fresh Astragalus are present.
Ron Teeguarden has been working on bringing an Astragaloside IV product to market since 1994. The original work was done at China Pharmaceutical University and Ron’s company purchased the rights to that research, and financially supported further Astragaloside research. Due to cost issues of producing a refined Astragaloside IV product at that time, the project has been on hold until recently. Dragon Herbs is extremely pleased to be bringing this incredible material to market in a “super pill” format.
Gypenosides are the main active constituents of Gynostemma pentaphyllum, one of the premier antiaging herbs used in Chinese herbalism. The 99% pure Gypenosides would be the richest possible source of Gypenoside XLIX, believed to be the most potent component of Gynostemma.
Gypenoside XLIX has been demonstrated to support modulatory processes of the Nuclear Factor Kappa B (NFкB) a transcription factor found in all cells of the human body.
Morinda is an excellent Yang essence tonic. It is used in superior tonic formulas for strengthening the body. It is widely used in primal essence formulations, often as the main ingredient. It is also considered in Chinese traditional health care to to support the heart function by improving circulation. It is a superb athlete’s herb and ranks among the most important Qi and Blood vitalizing herbs of the tonic system. It is likewise considered a major tonic herb and is a regular ingredient in Taoist formulations.
Super-Pill No.2 also contains the full-spectrum powdered non-saponin extract of Gynostemma. That means that all the other beneficial components of Gynostemma are present in this formulation.
Gynostemma is one of the most popular tonic herbs in the world and this product contains the most potent form, being a blend of FITT™ full spectrum extract and pure Gypenosides.
Trans-Resveratrol is one of the most popular and well-studied nutraceuticals in the world today. It is a polyphenol molecule found naturally in many plant species including grapes, peanuts, cranberries, Polygonum cuspidatum (a Chinese herbs that is not He Shou Wu) and others. Polyphenols are common in the human diet (at least among those who eat a healthy diet), where they act as antioxidants.
Trans-Resveratrol exerts anti-aging effects in animals. Nothing has been proven in humans as far as longevity is concerned. Numerous studies have shown resveratrol has potent antioxidant effects in humans, supports vascular endothelial function and normal lipid metabolism. It appears that resveratrol has numerous mechanisms by which it exerts its effects on the human body.
Like the Gypenosides, Trans-Resveratrol, the form of Resveratrol that has shown health-related functionality, modulates NFкB signaling, which in turn decreases some transcription of DNA and regulates cytokine expression. Resveratrol plays a powerful supportive role in immune regulation by modulating (supporting normal balance of) the secretion of numerous cytokines.
Trans-Resveratrol is being widely investigated for its proposed ability to support normal healthy blood flow, sometimes referred to as “cerebral sufficiency.” Cerebral blood flow is an important component of cognitive function. Human studies have shown that Trans-Resveratrol supports blood circulation in a dose dependent manner.
Current research indicates that a daily dosage in humans of 200 – 400 mg of trans-resveratrol can support immune and liver functions.
Astragaloside IV, Total Astragalosides, Total Gypenosides and Trans-Resveratrol work synergistically together to support immune functions in the body and to support normal cellular activities and functions.
I like this formula and also Recharge formulated by Dr Ed Park MD.
