Dragon Herbs Hermit’s Mix, 1 lb. bag

This unique and absolutely delicious herbal food mix is a powerful longevity tonic and a wonderful snack. Hermit’s Mix provides all three treasures, jing, qi, and shen. It is an amazingly satisfying herbal food and trail mix.

Goji is widely believed in the Orient to be a major anti-aging herb. Longan is an excellent blood tonic. The flavors of goji and longan fruits combine perfectly and delectably with the walnuts and pine nuts.

Walnuts are an excellent and important yang tonic. Dragon Herbs uses naturally grown, peeled walnuts (the thin outer skin is believed to be slightly toxic and counter-productive). The pine nuts in Hermit's Mix are an excellent source of energy. Pine nuts also suppress appetite. This mix gives you incredible energy. And, Hermit's Mix is an excellent beauty tonic. You’ve got to try this fantastic snack mix. You’ll love it, and you’ll love to turn your friends on to it.        

Goji berry is a well-established super-tonic longevity herb, and Longan fruit is a major blood tonic and beauty herb widely used in tonic herbalism. But why the nuts? Walntus and pine nuts are fabulous superfoods in their own right.

Walnuts
Walnuts are well-known as a delicacy in the west. To the Chinese, walnut “meat” is an important tonic herb which are said to act on the kidney yang, supporting the kidney’s capacity to “grasp the qi.” This makes walnuts beneficial to the primal energy of a human being, replenishing yang jing. As kidney yang acts upon kidney function, kidney yang herbs support the lumbar region of the back, the legs, the brain, and the sexual organs.

Walnuts are one of the only nuts considered to be a “superior herb.” That is a designation beyond being just another healthy food. No other true nut is included in this elite category of tonic herbs. That places walnut in the same category as deer antler, eucommia, and cistanche. As a yang tonic, walnuts are used in herbal formulations and in tonic food preparation to benefit the creative abilities of the mind and to strengthen sexual functions in men and women, to increase physical strength, and to promote longevity.*

Recent western research and analysis has shed light on the powerful nutritional benefits of walnuts. The walnut provides essential fatty acids for healthy skin and the development of body cells. Walnuts provide both monounsaturated fat and a rich supply of omega-3 fatty acids. A handful of walnuts contains almost as much omega-3 fatty acid as 3 ounces of salmon. Monounsaturated fat is also found in olive oil, and it has none of the adverse effects associated with saturated fats or trans-fats. Walnuts are a good source of two unsaturated fatty acids: linolenic acid and alpha-lanoline acid. The omega-3-fatty acids in walnuts support good circulation.

Walnuts contain vitamin E, iron, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, and folic acid, which build bones and maintain the health of the heart and blood.*

Walnuts also contain vitamin B6, which is helpful in relieving many of the symptoms associated with PMS. Middle-aged men with the highest blood level of vitamin B6 scored twice as high on a memory test than those with the lowest B6, according to Tufts University researchers. Walnuts may also help prevent joint pain and mild depression associated with old age.*

Walnuts are also used in Asia to support the lungs. They also support the functions of the colon. The traditional Chinese dosage is 1/3 to 1 ounce of walnuts daily

The walnuts used in Dragon Herbs Hermit’s Mix are a special grade of walnut and have an especially fine, clean flavor. They are also special in that they are peeled. According to Chinese herbal tradition, the walnut skin is believed to be slightly toxic and counteracts some of the benefits of the rest of the nut. Our walnuts are refrigerated from the farm until packaging to prevent spoilage. We bag them in small quantities to protect the freshness of the nuts.

Pine Nuts
Pine nuts are actually the seeds inside of pine cones. Pine nuts contain polyunsaturated fats, in particular linoleic and linolenic acids, essential fatty acids required by but not produced in the body. The best thing about pine nuts is their high concentration of monounsaturated fat, which paves the way for a healthier cardiovascular system, skin, and immune system

Pine nuts are nutrient dense. These tasty seeds are rich in vitamins A, B, C, and D. Vitamin A contributes to the growth and development of the body. Pine nuts contain a complex of vitamins B and D which stabilize nervous system functioning, improve blood composition, and have a favorable effect on skin tissue. The vitamin D in pine nuts supports stronger bones and teeth, by improving the body's ability to absorb calcium. Vitamins A and C support vision and the immune system.  

Pine nuts contain numerous microelements (minerals and trace minerals), including magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, phosphorous, and iodine. The nuts are especially rich in magnesium and phosphorus. In fact, pine nuts surpass all other nuts and oil-bearing seeds in their phosphorus content. Although the soy bean is generally considered the richest source of phosphorus among vegetable sources, the pine nut is in fact its equal. Pine nut is also an excellent source of iodine.

Pine nuts support the immune system, regulate a range of vital metabolic processes, support brain function, and support sexual functioning. Creatinine and L-arginine may be helpful in muscle metabolism and therefore may promote weight loss.*

For all this goodness nutritionally, pine nuts are also delicious. Pine nuts are known for their easy digestibility. For many centuries, Taoist hermits throughout Asia resisted eating rice and other grains and instead ate pine nuts as a primary source of energy and nutrients. When combining pine nuts with edible herbs, the Taoists created a superfood diet – which we now call Hermit’s Mix. Ron Teeguarden's teacher, Master Sung Jin Park, ate pine nuts and herbs when he lived as a hermit in the remote mountains of Korea with his teacher, the Venerable and Immortal Grand Master Moo San Do Sha.

This exclusive blend of pine nuts, walnuts, goji berries, and longan fruit is a true supertonic superfood.

Dragon Herbs Hermit's Mix, 1 lb. bag is great energy food! Pine nuts contain about 20% protein, a type of protein easily digested by humans.
 

Pine nuts are especially rich in vitamins B1 (thiamine) and B6, which helps with PMS and supports cognitive functions.

Pine nuts have a high amino acid content which features L-arginine (20%). Natural food-based L-arginine supports the normal production of Human Growth Hormone. Found in high concentrations in the connective tissues, l-arginine is a component of collagen that plays a vital role in the production of new tissue and bone cells – and helps keep the skin young and elastic. L-arginine supports the activity of the thymus gland, which produces T-cells, and thus supports immune functions. L-arginine actually facilitates a reduction in body fat, while increasing lean muscle mass.*

Studies have shown that l-arginine inhibits the absorption of saturated fats from one’s diet. L-arginine is considered to be a key to efficient muscle metabolism because of its role in the transport, storage, and elimination of nitrogen, and it supports normal libido (sexual drive). 

Pine nuts and walnuts contain substantial levels of vitamin E (tocopherol), a very powerful antioxidant that binds oxygen free radicals. Pine nuts contain numerous minerals and trace minerals, including magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, phosphorous and iodine.

 
Remember Ron Teeguarden’s “First Rule of Tonic Herbalism,” summed up in a single word – Compliance. If you don’t take the herbs, they won’t work.”
