Qi is irreplaceable when liquid and blood become food essence; thereafter the food essence turns into nutritious Qi and body fluid; the nutritious Qi and body fluid turn into red blood; blood will come from life essence and marrow will transform into the blood. The above-mentioned functions of Qi are realized mainly by respective internal organs and heart function.
