Cistanche Stem Extract
Cistanche, also known as "Desert Ginseng," is a shrub-like plant native to the desert regions of Mongolia. The thick, fleshy stems are gathered in the spring, dried in the sun, and cut into slices for use in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a classic Yang tonic for low energy and low libido. Cistanche stem is used as a potent antioxidant, for healthy brain function, and to boost energy and support a healthy immune system.
Research now attributes cistanche's powerful actions to its special compounds known as phenylethanoid glycosides and echinacosides. Our cistanche is a concentrated SuperPure® extract with verified activity of these compounds for optimal benefit. Purity is paramount; we conduct extensive heavy metal and microbe testing and guarantee full organic certification and non-GMO status.
