Dr. Fung's Cistanche Salsa Herbal Supplement
Health Concerns Virility Tabs contain a blend of Chinese herbs that could potentially work to support healthy reproductive function in men.
This is an empirical formula based on Dr. Fung's 60 years of clinical experience. Some of the conditions that contribute to infertility in men are decreased libido, lack of energy, difficulty in achieving or maintaining an erection, premature ejaculation, and low sperm count, poor sperm motility, among others. In Chinese medicine, the primary organ responsible for maintaining reproduction capabilities is the kidney; it also stores essence, which is the basis for sperm production. Common syndrome patterns that can give rise to infertility include insufficient kidney yang, kidney yin deficiency of Qi and blood, and constrained liver qi which causes blood stasis. In this formula, the chief herb is Kirin ginseng (ji lin shen) which strongly tonifies the basal qi and strengthens the spleen and tonifies the stomach. Cistanche salsa (rou cong rong) addresses impotence, spermatorrhea, and cold pain of the back. Morinda (ba ji tian)along with psoralea (bu gu zhi) tonify the kidney and Qi. Deer antler sediment (lu Jiao shuang) and cynamorium (suo yang) tonify the kidney, with the latter aiding the smooth flow of Qi and blood. Herbs that tonify the blood are Rehmannia (shu di huang), tang kuei (dang gui), and gelatinum (e Jiao). Cinnamon bark (rou gui) warms the kidney and fortifies the yang. Cardamom (sha ren) promotes the movement of Qi and strengthens the stomach; in addition, it is added to this formula, which is tonifying in order to prevent the herbs from causing stagnation.
