Abstract: Kidney and triple energizers are inseparable in structure and function. Therefore, it is proposed that “kidney-triple energizers” might be the essence of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) system. As a cardinal, this article aims to interpret the theoretical connotation of the mesenchymal stem cell system from the perspective of “the kidney essence is the body and the triple energizers is the function”. It is reflected in the kidney-three energizers system, and guided by the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, the modern technology of MSCs has achieved good results in the application of refractory diseases such as COVID-19, and a preliminary exploration of the integration of Chinese and Western medicine research has been carried out.

Key words: mesenchymal stem cells, kidney essence, triple energizers Qi transformation
