It seems, from comments made on the website herbwisdom.com by readers, that this product contains steroidal saponins and phyto-hormones and that it probably contains a very high level of natural progesterone that is beneficial in its ability to balance excess oestrogen in the body. According to this writer it is thus not dangerous for woman as so many scientists claim. Another person, who used this product, claims that it has improved his sex drive. Another one wrote that he combined it with other products and his PSA test showed a reduction from 15 to 0.1. A lady wrote that she was involved in an accident and suffered terrible joint pains and inflammation. After using this product she was relieved from all pain within a couple of weeks.

When you study the medical reviews on this product though, researchers tell you that there are no clinical evidence for these claims. Who shall we believe? The scientists and their clinical trials or the Chinese who have been using this product for thousands of years and people who have actually used it, benefitted from it and testified to its healing proprieties.
