What Is Cistanche Tubulosa?
Cistanche Tubulosa (a.k.a. Cistanche deserticola) is an unusual parasitic flower that grows in the Taklimakan Desert Region of Xinjiang, Uyghur Autonomous Region. It can’t produce chlorophyll like most plants; instead it extracts water and nutrients from host plants for energy.
Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have historically prized Cistanche Tubulosa for
- Increasing longevity
- Improving stamina
- Boosting sexual vigor
The plant has also been known as a remedy for renal disease since 100 BC.
In the yellow flowers of Cistanche, one can see a contrast with the dry landscape. These ancient healers and herbalists likely found them unusual in appearance and sought them out for their medicinal properties, considering they were used like ginseng when it could not be obtained elsewhere.
Cistanche tubulosa is considered endangered because the conditions to grow it are difficult to create.

Cistanche Tubulosa (肉苁蓉 Rou Cong Rong) is a fantastic herb for whole body health. The herb has been the subject of numerous research studies since the 1980s. The herb has been found to support improvement in even more conditions than the ones initially discovered. It has been shown to:

It has often been called “desert ginseng“ because it energizes the body like ginseng.

Researchers have found over 100 phytochemical compounds in the plant, including phenylethanoid glycosides (PhGs), lignans, alditols and iridoids.
