Polygala is an extremely special and unique Shen tonic, that has long been revered for its calming and relaxing properties, and its ability to help strengthen ones determination. It is used to calm the spirit and quiet the heart, while also empowering mental development. Apparently, the ancient Taoist sages and herbalists even viewed Polygala in a similar light as the ultimate and supreme tonics, such as wild Reishi and wild Ginseng. While Polygala is a powerfully soothing and calming herb to both the physical body and the mind, it is also known as the “Will Strengthener”, because of its ability to fortify ones commitment and resolve. These qualities have made it particularly popular among martial artists by enhancing their ability to accomplish rigorous physical and mental practice.
