Cistanche has the unique quality of tonifying the Yang Jing of the Kidneys while simultaneously promoting essence and blood. Because of this quality it is also capable of bringing moistness to the Large Intestine which is the other meridian this herb enters. This action may be particularly beneficail for the elderly who are more likely to be affected by deficiencies of Yang, blood, and fluids.
This herb has the ability of tonifying the Yang without overheating, warms without being drying, and moistens without draining. Cistanche is powerful yet gentle in its action.
In some ancient texts, it is said that the consumption of Cistanche directs blood flow to the pelvic and genital area with the resulting effect of enhancing the strength of erections and enlarging the penis. The Yang energy of Cistanche can be used for sexual vigor or may be directed to any creative outlet.
