Cistanche Extract


According to traditional Chinese Medicine, Cistanche deserticola is one of the top herbs to strengthen the kidneys and provide incredible blood benefits.

Cistanche extract was traditionally used as a tonic to treat all wasting diseases, an aphrodisiac for men, and restore impotence, spermatorrhea, menstrual difficulties, gonorrhea, and problems related to the genital organs of women.

Today, Rou Cong Rong is used to reinforce the kidneys’ vital functions, as a mild laxative for chronic constipation in the elderly, and to treat impotence.
