Notes:

This formula uses expensive ingredients such as deer antler velvet which were not commonly used in the past due to the cost. It is however much more frequently required today due to the depletion of essence from the lifestyles that are found and due to the excessive sexual indulgence and masturbation which both deplete the essence and hasten old age. The use of certain medications and a poor diet coupled with lack of sleep also deplete essence.

This formula is also useful for delayed development in children and also to treat weakness in the elderly.
