What Others Are Saying About Black Ants?

"Has made a nice addition to the morning maté. I love that this is a [fifty-fifty] RAW ant to ant extract ratio. You can see little shards here and there of maybe antennae or legs perhaps, but it mixes very smooth. Has a strong scent too. Seems fresh. And what you may expect raw ground ants to smell like. Taste is earthy and not at all bad in my tastes. Gives me solid energy throughout the day. Noticed the libido increase as well. Great product." — Nick


This is not going to be a product for everyone. And that's OK with us. We can't make everyone happy, and we can't make a one-size-fits-all product,—and even if we could, what fun would that be (and how well would it work)?

However, for the adventurous and for those looking for something uniquely restorative, then this is your product.

Then our wild-harvested Black Ants for you.

And if you listen to your body, you'll know if what you need if something that restores at a fundamental, at a foundational and base level.

Chronic fatigue. Feelings of pre-mature aging. Ungrounded. Worn-out and burnout. Loss of all desire. Frustrated. Unable to focus. Can't move forward. 

Does any of this sound familier?

All too often when we're experiencing these symptoms, we reach for stimulants, whether that be more coffee and energy drinks, highly stimulating herbs like Maca Root or Chinese and Korean Ginseng, and even pharmaceutical or recreational drugs.

We live in a highly stimulated culture and we are burnt out.

But stimulants just lead to a worsening of symptoms because the root of those symptoms is not a lack of stimulants, is a lack of reserves in the body.

There is no medical condition called "Lack of Coffee."

This is where Jing tonics and Jing foods like Black Ants come in and this is where they excel. These are not Band-Aids and these are not temporary "solutions." But they are going to make you feel better, and the effects can be long lasting.

So, yeah, are Black Ants for everyone? Probably not. Are they for you? Well, that's a question that one one person can answer and that person isn't the person writing this.

You'll know if it's you. And if it is, then this is your product.

In-Depth with Wild-Harvested Black Ants

Long revered as The King of Herbs, Black Ants (Polyrhachis vicina Roger) is known as Xuanju in Chinese medicine—translating to Black Horse. We find that a particularly suiting name.

In Chinese Medicine, Black Ants are used primarily as a Jing tonic that nourishes all three treasures: Jing, Qi, and Shen. Black Ants work with the body on a profound and restorative tonic level.

Black Ants offer a nutritive tonic qualities among the likes of Chinese Ginseng, Reishi, Deer Antler, Maca, and Astragalus.

However, unlike warming (stimulating) tonics and adaptogens, which can weaken and exacerbate someone that is already worn-down, Shilin Stone Forest Black Ants have a neutral-to-cooling effect. This is incredibly unique in Chinese herbal medicine, making them able to provide long-lasting, restorative, tonic, adaptogenic properties.

This is an ideal herb for men looking to add a potent Jing food to their routine, one that is nutrient dense, high in zinc, and is known to promote virility.

What Are The Benefits of Black Ants?

  • Black Ants May Support:
  • Tones both Yin and Yang;
  • Soothes Jing and adrenal depletion (fatigue);
  • Potent antioxidant;
  • Inter-cellular energy support (ATP, similar to NAC);
  • Adaptogenic function;
  • Powerful restorative tonic; 
  • Supportive of multiple body systems;
  • Functional and dense corrective nutrition.* 

What Makes This Product Special?

We take wild-harvested Black Ants and produce two separate preparations. A 10:1 hot water extract powder and a crush (completely pulverized) RAW Black Ant Powder. 

There are benefits to both (RAW and Extract Powder), so we combine the two at a 50/50 ratio. This ensures both the concentrated tonic effects in the extracts and the restorative nutrients are intact.

Our Shilin Stone Forest Black Ants—part of our Forest Formulations collection—provides the living enzymes, proteins, and other nutrients and compounds present in the RAW Powder with a dense, potent, clinical grade 10:1 extract for ensured sustenance.

  • Amino acids;
  • Calcium;
  • Iron;
  • Phosphorus;
  • Protein;
  • Manganese;
  • Selenium;
  • Vitamins B1, B2, B12, C, D, E;

    elevated black ants

    daniel s. on Jan 13, 2021

    my favorite so far from the first time trying. good clean energy, good libido, just a good feeling. i must be missing some of those elements that it brings when consuming. take daily with coffee. like to mix it up daily with cistanche, shilajit and or with your elevated cordyceps, depending of the plan for the day.

    Has made a nice addition to the morning maté. I love that this is a fifty fifty RAW ant to ant extract ratio. You can see little shards here and there of maybe antennae or legs perhaps, but it mixes very smooth. Has a strong scent too. Seems fresh. And what you may expect raw ground ants to smell like. Taste is earthy and not at all bad in my tastes. Gives me solid energy throughout the day. Noticed the libido increase as well. Great product.
