Why Polyrachis Ant May Be The Best Zinc Supplement
Zinc is one of the most common mineral deficiencies in western countries, and even a mild zinc deficiency lowers sex drive, limits muscle gain potential, causes weight gain and hurts energy levels. Lastly, zinc is a trace element required for most of the functions of human life because it directly affects our ability to maintain homeostasis by modulating our immune response and stress response, while also being required for the biological function of more than 300 enzymes in the human body. Numerous aspects of cellular metabolism are also zinc-dependent. Zinc plays an important role for the immune system, neurological nervous system, and reproductive system. Zinc participates in the synthesis of nucleic acids (the components of DNA and RNA) and protein, while also playing a role in cell signaling which has been found to influence hormone release and nerve impulse transmission.
Polyrhachis Ant is extremely rich in zinc. The zinc content of Polyrhachis Ant is the highest among all known living organisms. Every kilogram of dried ants contains 120-198 mg of zinc. It can promote the growth and reduce the shrinkage of the thymus gland, which generally shrinks as one grows older.
One really important thing to take note of is the zinc content of Polyrachis Ant. This herb has the highest zinc content among all known living organisms. Zinc is critical element involved in many essential processes in the body and is largely deficient in our food supply. On top of that most zinc supplements in the market are not bio-available, which means they are essentially a waste of money since our bodies can not absorb and utilize this key mineral.
Strength of Ant
A unique set of Aldehyde compounds found in Ant has been demonstrated to have a stronger tonic action than Ginseng, and it has thus far been impossible to otherwise synthesize this chemical. These aldehyde compounds include geranicaldehyde (C10H16O) and formalindehyde (HCHO, C10H14O). It is believed to be a result of these and several similar aldehydes, as well as some other chemicals in ant, that give ants their enormous physical strength and ultimately give the consumers of Ant extract the well-established increase in strength (ants can lift up to 400 times their own weight and pull up to 1700 times their own weight).
Polyrachis Nourishes Both Yin and Yang Jing
Polyrachis is The Top Jing Tonic. Polyrachis ant has been used for centuries as a tonic herb to improve the jing energy in the body. If we are interested in real health, vitality, and longevity, then we should learn how to conserve, preserve, and build this energy.
Jing is that which is the material basis for our life, which can be transmuted and transformed into a new life through the process of pro-creation. Jing is the most highly refined substance in our body, thus is forms the basis for all of our tissues, especially the male and female sexual fluids, as well as the sperm and ova.
Jing represents the reserve or stored energy of the body which is divided into two aspects, pre-natal and post-natal. The pre-natal is what we have genetically and hereditarily inherited from our parents and our families genetic heritage. The post-natal is that which we accumulate in our life time through our diet and lifestyle. So from this we can see a one part of our jing energy is inherited and the other is generated in our own lifetime. It is our ability to generate, conserve, and preserve this Jing energy that determines our freedom from degenerative disease as well as our potential lifespan.
Jing energy can be observed in the luster and texture of the skin, hair, nails, and tongue. Most importantly jing energy can be observed in our fertility, sexual prowess, creativity, drive, courage, will, inspiration, and athletic power.Jing also plays a huge role in the strength of the skeletal system, as well as the production of bone marrow and stem cells. Jing energy is depleted by the process of living itself, and also by stress, excessive behavior, and overwork. However, with proper exercise, diet, and taking tonic herbs we can replenish and conserve this energy.
Polyrachis Nourishes Both Yin and Yang Jing. This herb nourishes all Three Treasures of Chinese Medicine: Jing, Chi, and Shen. This alone makes it a true superstar tonic herb, but even more impressive is the fact that it nourishes both the yin and yang aspects of the jing energy.
Yin Jing is a deeply nourishing energy and is regarded as the cornerstone of rejuvenation and the foundation of longevity. Many regard the accumulation as more or less building reserves of energy that are stored in the body for future use, thus providing long term regenerative and youth-preserving qualities. Yin tonic herbs tend to nourish endocrine hormones, which are noticeably depleted as we age as well as when we experience bouts of extreme physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual stress.
The process of living and aging depletes this Yin energy and it can also be depleted by stress, overwork, exhaustion, childbearing, excessive or chronic drug or medicine use, disease, excessive emotionalism and sexual excess. Deficient Yin Jing can manifest as dark rings under the eyes, backaches, weak kidney and reproductive functions, low resistance to infection, weak digestion, as well as other signs of rapid aging.
Yang Jing is deeply empowering and inspiring. This energy helps us to stoke the fire of life and invigorate dormant vitality. This energy can manifest as great sexual prowess, creativity, will power and athletic power. Thus we can see that one of the results of building this energy is a renewed youthfulness.
Polyrachis is well tolerated by most people since it contains both yin and yang, this makes it more balanced in its effects in the body. Some herbs like Ginseng or Deer Antler can quite often be too warming or stimulating for some people, and its for this reason that polyrachis is regarded as superior.

The unique ATP present in ants, which is the cellular energy source, actually provides energy to human body.
