SKYGIN 3P - Emperor's Formula

Emperor Shi Huangdi (Qin Dynasty) 246 – 210 BC

Since 2000 years ago, Emperors from the Qin Dynasty (Emperor Shi Huang Ti who built the Great Wall of China) to the Ming Dynasty (Emperor Yongle who sent the world’s largest expedition voyage ever known to man) had hoped to turn the myth of Longevity into a reality.

They kept thousands of concubines for sex and health reasons, believing sex to have the mystical powers for longevity. However, their energy overdrive without the proper health supplements soon took a toll on the Emperors’ health.

Therefore, the royal master herbalist of each dynasty would prepare food supplements with medicinal effects to improve the Emperor’s physique and preserve their health. This ancient Chinese tradition is clearly stated in the Imperial Medical Classic, Huang Di Nei Jing, under “Plain Questions Imperial Formula”.

Huang Di Nei Jing records all the use of herbs and formulas in the archives of the Imperial Palace, including the secret formula “Huang Gong Te Fang” (Imperial Palace Special Formula), which was only for the royal families’ consumption.

In 1402, Emperor Yongle (Ming Dynasty) ruled and was highly health conscious. In 1403, he appointed Cheng Ho (Zheng He), a Muslim eunuch from the Yunnan province as an admiral and gave him command of the naval expedition in 1404. Search for longevity medicine was one of the agenda which brought Admiral Cheng Ho to Malacca and as far as the Cape of Good Hope. His first expedition included 27,870 men on 317 ships, staffed by an impressive 500 crew each. The ships were specially built to house treasures and medicine, as well as bringing gifts to foreign rulers and vice versa.   0

Known as one of the greatest Admirals in Chinese history, Admiral Cheng Ho sailed as far as Africa to carry out his duties before landing in Malacca (Kingdom in the Malay peninsula) on his second Nanyang (Southern) expedition in 1409. The Emperor had sent him to bestow the following gifts upon Parameswara (Iskandar Shah), the ruler of Malacca: two silver robes, a mandarin’s hat, an embroided yellow silk robe and precious Chinese Panax Ginseng. In return, Parameswara presented the Emperor with a pair of western spectacles, bird’s nest, sea cucumber, spices and most of all, the “Pasak Bumi” also known as  “Tongkat Ali” (Eurycoma Longifolia) – a special local herb for men. Pasak Bumi looks similar to ginseng but is very much bigger in size.   0

Upon his return to Peking, Admiral Cheng Ho presented the gifts to Emperor Yongle and informed him about the effectiveness of Pasak Bumi a.k.a Tongkat Ali on men. The Emperor immediately ordered his royal master herbalist to experiment on the herb with the secret "Huang Di Te Fang" (Imperial Special Formula). The experiment yielded fantastic results as it generated more "Qi" force for longevity. Emperor Yongle was so fascinated with this newfound herbs preparation that he renamed it "Huang Di Ye Fang" (The Emperor's Secret Formula) – an improved version which replaced "Huang Di Te Fang". Thus, a new Emperor's formula was born and the Emperor instructed it to be kept a secret and strictly for his own use only.
