Not Essential Oils, Not Herbs,
Not Resins; The Dragons Are All These Combined!
In Ancient Chinese Culture Dragons Were Benevolent Animals Made Up Of Several Different Animal Parts.
So like the Mystical Creatures of Ancient China, TRUessence’s Dragons are made not of just one part of the plant (ie: the essential oils, the resins, the fleshy herbs). The Dragons are a breakthrough in modern technology that contain all the parts of a plant: the essential oils, the resins, AND the herb of plants.
French Medical Doctor and world renouned Aromatherapist, Dr. Penoel, said if ever man could find a way to extract from a plant all the healing elements and not just the essential oils that would surely be the perfect medicine. Well, thanks to cutting edge technology and brilliant scientific minds, ForeverGreen is now the exclusive owner of this amazing new technology that does just that.
In the TRUessence lineup we now have The Dragons which are very much a different animal all their own, and we want the world to know we have something very unique here.
There are 5 different Dragons, one to represent each of the 5 Ancient Chinese Elements:
FIRE ~ Representing the FIRE element is The RED DRAGON
EARTH ~ Representing the EARTH element is The YELLOW DRAGON
METAL ~ Representing the METAL element is The WHITE DRAGON
WATER ~ Representing the WATER element is The BLACK DRAGON
WOOD ~ Representing the WOOD element is The GREEN DRAGON
Before jumping into what The Dragons can do, Let me tell you more about how they are created:
The Dragons are not essential oils, they are not herbs, they are not resins from the plant. The dragons are the herb (or flesh), the resins, AND the essential oils of the plant all combined and extracted at the same time. It’s a completely new and patented product, and there is nothing else out there like them.
Let me introduce you to HYDRessence = total plant concentrates, we affectionately call them “The Dragons”.
You may be familiar with the way essential oils are extracted from the raw plants = usually steam distillation. After steam passes through the raw plant matter it releases the oils from the plant and the lighter molecules of the oil rise up within the steam. The steam is then condensed and cooled and then the oil separates and floats on top of the water. Violà. . . essential oil.
This new extraction process is called Supercritical fluid CO2 extraction. It is a relatively new process. Supercritical fluid CO2 extraction produces extremely pure and superior quality herbal extracts that you can use in herbal medicine or aromatherapy, because the resulting super medicinal fluid is in pure liquid form.
Supercritical CO2 extraction has many benefits over steam or hydro distillation. The CO2 extraction process consists of pumping pressurized carbon dioxide into a chamber filled with the raw plant matter. When carbon dioxide is subjected to pressure it becomes “supercritical” and has liquid properties while remaining in a gaseous state. Because of the liquid properties of the gas, the CO2 functions as a solvent, pulling the oils and other substances such as pigment and resin from the plant matter. Thus the difference between CO2 extraction and traditional distillation is that CO2 is used as a solvent instead of heated water or steam. The temperature involved in CO2 extraction is around 95 to 100 degrees as opposed to 140 to 212 degrees in steam distillation, leaving even more healing properties of the plant in tact.
Steam distillation can extract the volatile and light weight lipid or oil-based molecules but it leaves behind other larger water soluble molecules. CO2 being more solvent than water can extract both types of molecules and give a more complete extraction of the original plant material, both in fragrance and medicinal chemical properties.
This one of a kind, proprietary process starts with CO2 supercritical extraction of the entire plant material. Extracting every bioactive agent from the plant material – both water soluble and oil soluble – resulting in a complete or “total” plant extract. Total plant extracts are nearly sterile so they require no preservatives. Since all proteins and sugars are removed from the total plant extracts, there is no base for germ growth. Like essential oils, with proper care HYDRessence total plant concentrates have a very good shelf life.
Due to the natural separation that occurs between water-soluble and oil-soluble molecules, a further step is required in order to use them effectively as therapeutic agents.
This second step is another new technology breakthrough. Through a process called “Aqueous Molecular Partitioning” (AMP process), the total plant extracts can be processed so they blend together and do not separate. The resulting super extract is completely water soluble so it dissolves easily in water, juice, or food. This makes it ideal for oral intake. You can take the essential oils plus the addition of those crucial plant compounds incorporated into the extract through the AMP process.
The developer of this amazing new technology summarizes these two processes this way: “When we are done with the plant there is nothing left. This is done without molecular-killing processes using heat or hazardous solvents. Under high pressure, harmless carbon dioxide breaks down the whole plant material to its essence, and that essence is made completely water soluble.”
Working exclusively with the developers of this amazing new technology, TRUessence has created an exclusive new product category called “HYDRessence”. We call these HYDRessence products:
We refer to these finished plant life concentrates as HYDRessences, because they contain every bioactive ingredient of the plant, do not separate, are easily dissolved in water, and are readily absorbed in the body for immediate effect. They are ideal for internal use, providing complete bio-therapeutic and phyto-medicinal compounds, both water and oil soluble, to support and protect the body.
We embrace this revolutionary new approach to healing and prevention that can potentially be more powerful than using just essential oils or herbs alone. The water soluble HYDRessence plant life concentrates are made to be taken internally, and quickly give your body benefits of the whole plant.
While you can use either of these natural, therapeutic extracts separately, when used together holistically, they create a synergistic healing power that is only possible with TRUessence pure essential oils and HYDRessence plant life concentrates.
So let me introduce you to the DRAGONS: There are 5 Dragons, and they correspond to the 5 Chinese elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood.
The Green Dragon
Representing the Wood element, Green Dragon is useful in cleansing the blood, supporting the liver in detoxification, and in alkalinizing the body’s pH.
