Desert Ginseng (Cistanche Tubulosa) | 25% Echinacoside – Powder, 30g
Botany’s Cistanche tubulosa is standardized to contain 25% Echinocoside, which is an effective inhibitor of Wnt/β-catenin signaling and an activator of Trk receptors and their downstream signal pathways. It is Echinocoside that is thought to be responsible for Cistanche tubulosa’s potential medicinal properties.
Cistanche has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries as it is claimed the plant helps to support vitality and physical endurance. There is even a legend that Genghis Khan consumed Cistache daily and that the plant first sprang from the ground at the site of an epic battle. Whilst this can never be confirmed, it explains the plant’s reputation, the truth however is that Cistanche is a rich source of a variety of compounds, particularly Echinocoside, which likely gives it its potential health benefits.
