Shifu Paul Hwang. Great Stuff.

Great Iron Palm linement.
Freaky weird good "Athletes Replenish"
Effective 5 Imortals.
And his Iron Shirt powder, although it looks and tastes like potting soil, is the closest thing to magic I've ever seen. But this he usually only makes for his students, with some pretty serious precausions

I am not sure about cheap, I don't know what the price of this is. But a TCM Dr., here in Phoenix will ship herbs and if he doesn't have it will usually order it for you. His name is Dr. Chow and his number is 1-877-38HERBS. Good luck. ;)

Anyone have experience with this company?

www.seaofchi.com

It seems like they have a nice selection of premade jow as well as raw herb recipes to make your own. Or, you can buy them seperately if you have your own recipe. Interesting selection of other TCM remedies also.

Anyone have any other recommendations of where to get these types of ingrediants? I want to start making my own jow to save a few bucks as well as learn a little something along the way.

Thanks

I got the standard catalog in the mail and it looks good. I haven't received the martial arts catalog yet. That's the one I'm really interested in. If I don't get it soon, I'm going to request it again.

#1: They seem too cheap, given what they say they contain.
#2: They don't deliver the kick of real herbs.
#3: They can't be fresh.

The bottom line here is to always get your herbs from a proper herbalist. Don't just read about the effects on the web and head out to your cheapest vitamin supplier.


FDA Finds Majority of Herbal Supplements at GNC, Walmart, Walgreens, And Target Donít Contain What They Claim Ė Instead Cheap Fillers Like Wheat And Soy Powder (http://www.healthmagazine365.com/fda-finds-majority-of-herbal-supplements-at-gnc-walmart-walgreens-and-target-dont-contain-what-they-claim-instead-cheap-fillers-like-wheat-and-soy-powder/?utm_content=buffer0fd5c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer)
January 3, 2016

The lack of regulations in regards to herbal products helps Walmart, Walgreens, Target, and GNC to take full advantage and sell the public supplements that do not contain the herbs on the label.

The New York State attorney generalís office conducted an investigation into store-brand supplements at four national retailers ó GNC, Target, Walgreens and Wal-Mart. The investigation found that these giant retail stores sell dietary supplements that do not contain the herbs specified on their labels. Moreover, many of these supplements included potential allergens which were not identified in the ingredients list.

Normally, all these stores deserved their cease-and-desist letters which requested them to stop selling these products. These letters, first reported today by the New York Times maintained that ďContamination, substitution and falsely labeling herbal products constitute deceptive business practices and, more importantly, present considerable health risks for consumers.Ē

We will now explain the findings of the investigations of these products in more details below:
