Dragon Herbs website says this about their “Microcosmic Orbit” formula.
Microcosmic Orbit is an important and very useful formula used in the Taoist and Chan (Zen) Buddhist traditions to supply energy to, to open, and to regulate the primal energy channels and to promote the flow of energy in these channels. Microcosmic Orbit is extremely centering and empowering. It also has an “astringent” quality, which means that it prevents the leaking of Jing.* Microcosmic Orbit is composed of herbs that consolidate energy in the primal channels of the body and prevent it from “leaking.” In so doing, it helps to build Jing energy in the body (by preventing the loss of Jing).
This is a great formula for people on mission to build up their Jing. It must be used simultaneously with appropriate Jing tonic formulations that actually increase the amount of Jing in the body. It may also be used by those who currently have an abundance of Jing within their system, but who are being subjected to stress or are actively engaged in significant sexual activity. The formula may also be used by athletes with great effect. It prevents exhaustion and builds both physical and mental endurance.
I have not taken it; maybe someone else will reply.
I would be a little skeptical of an herb advertisement whose main promotion is that it enables alchemy to work. I find this a little unbelievable and–even if true–not a reason to take an herbal combination. While the lycium and schizandra that are in there are fairly OK for anyone to take (in my opinion), the other herbs could have odd reactions for somebody, depending on their personal constitution. Unless under the diagnosis of a herbalist, or deciding to experiment at your own risk, I would dis-advise.
