For passion and drive in bedroom, boardroom
Cistanche promotes virility, strength, endurance, confidence and drive. It does this by increasing the neurotransmitters and hormones associated with those qualities, such as dopamine, noradrenaline and testosterone.
Cistanche isnt a steroid so it will not raise your testosterone levels any higher than they need to be, and this applies to both sexes. But testosterone levels are often lower than they
should be, especially in men, and cistanche will help raise them to the optimal level for your body, when used consistently over a period of weeks.
Cistanche is also famous as an aphrodisiac. It improves the blood flow to the genital region and its this, along with the hormone-strengthening aspect, that makes it effective. Results arent guaranteed of course, because the effects always depend on other factors as well, especially whats going on in your head.
Cistanche is likely to make you feel passionate – not just in terms of sexual energy but in other areas or about life in general. For instance you may feel more passion for your partner or a creative process or winning a race or doing training. There are all kinds of areas where you can apply that extra drive and passion that cistanche helps you to have.
Give cistanche a try if you feel you could use more passion, drive and joyful exuberance in your life!
"Cistanche is a superior Kidney tonic that may be used by men or women, though it is primarily used by men to promote sexual power and virility. Cistanche has also earned the honorable title of "Ginseng of the desert.” It is however most famously known as the “Stalk Enlarger.” It has gained the traditional reputation of improving male erections, improving orgasms in both men and women, and for enlarging the penis by increasing blood circulation to the organ (no scientific substantiation available). Cistanche is also considered to be an excellent mood supporting herb.
Recently, there has been increasing scientific attention on Cistanche for its remarkable anti-aging bioactivities including antioxidation and neuroprotection. The chemical constituents of Cistanche mainly include non-volatile phenylethanoidglycosides (PhGs), volatile oils, iridoids, lignans, alditols, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. Pharmacological studies show that the cistanocides, related to the ginsenosides of Ginseng and the astragalosides of Astragalus, are major active components of Cistanche. PhGs are, however, the primary constituent for tonifying Kidney functions, which include sexual, renal, structural, neurological, marrow and endocrine tissues and functions. PhGs also support antioxidation and neuroprotection. These active constituents of Cistanche are also quite similar to those of Rehmannia, another well-known kidney tonic, that is a yin nourishing tonic. In fact, all three of these glycosides are also found in Rehmannia, along with its primary iridoid glycoside, catalpol. Like Rehmannia, Cistanche are both rich in sterols, such as sitosterol. Thus, it could be that the "gentle" nature of Cistanche as a yang tonic is due to having ingredients that also nourish yin.
Galactitol and oligosaccharides moisten and nourish the colon and support normal healthy bowel functions, while polysaccharides are responsible for improving body immunity.
Cistanche is famous for being simultaneously powerful and mild. It is both Yang and Yin. Its actions are profound and unmistakable, but its actions as a Yang tonic are said to be “calm and smooth,” meaning that it is not sudden or harsh.
This is what Shennong, Chinas first and legendary herbalist had to say about Cistanche:
“Cistanche has a salty taste (in fact, Cistanche is not really salty, it is sweet). It mainly treats the five taxations and seven damages, supplements the center, eliminates cold and heat and pain in the penis, nourishes the five viscera, strengthens Yin, and boosts Jing and Qi. In females, it makes pregnancy possible and treats concretions and conglomerations. Protracted taking may make the body light.”
Cistanche has been used in traditional formulations as a tonic to restore Kidney functions and to tonify Jing, and thus to help restore youth and to prevent further degeneration with aging.
The infamous Genghis Khan, who fathered literally hundreds of children in his lifetime and who has left the largest genetic trail of any single man in human history, consumed Cistanche as a daily tonic. His Y-chromosome is today found in an estimated 16 million of his male line progeny in a vast swath of Asia from Manchuria to Central Asia. Thats one of every 200 males on earth today. Cistanche grows wild in the regions that were controlled by Genghis Khan (Mongolia and Heaven Mountain). Wild Cistanche is collected in arid regions that are untouched by civilization.
Numerous classical manuals on both herbalism and sexuality describe Cistanche in much detail. For instance, it was mentioned no less than one hundred times in The Essence of Medical Prescriptions (984 A.D.) in the sections on mens health, sex, Yang tonics and physical empowerment. This is one of the most honored medical texts for Oriental medical practitioners still in existence. One of the sections focused entirely on the bedroom arts, and Cistanche was the premier herb used in numerous formulations for men. It was referred to routinely as the “stalk enlarger,” in reference to the “jade stalk” or penis.
The herb remains extremely popular in Asia. Products featuring Cistanche are found in all herb shops. Cistanche has a colorful reputation in China, since everyone knows what it does." - www.dragonherbs.com
What are herbal extracts? Herbal extracts are an excellent way of getting the nutrition and goodness from a herb, without the trouble of sometimes elaborate preparation. They are also a way of getting the goodness in as concentrated a form as possible.
How are herbal extracts made? The raw herbs are prepared by hot water extraction, the water is then evaporated off until all that is left is the essential oils and active ingredients.
