Top Ten Anti-aging Chinese Medicine Remedies (1)

4) Panax Notoginseng (sanqi 三七)

Potogenseng is credited in Chinese medicine for being the miracle root. Master herbalist Zhao Xuemin (赵学敏) once compared gensing and notogensing and commented in his work Additional Gleaning of An Outline Treatise of Medical Herbs (《本草纲目拾遗》): "While both have the same taste and similar effects, gensing is a more powerful force for strengthening the vital qi, notogensing is a more potent agent in improving blood circulation (人参补气第一,三七补血第一,味同而功亦等).

For thousands of years, it has been used in China to assist coagulation of the blood, to stop bleeding, and to increase coronary blood flow.

5) Hoo (wujia 五加)

In An Outline Treatise of Medical Herbs (《本草纲目》), the bible of Chinese herbal medicine, hoo is parsed as being more precious than gold and jade (宁得一把五加,不用金玉满车) for its magic anti-aging effects (久服轻身耐老).

When its anti-fatigue function is considered, it is said to be even more effective than gensing. Other important functions of hoo include regulating the activities of nerves system, endocrine system and cardiovascular system.

6) Lucidum (lingzhi 灵芝)

Ganoderma lucidum, that strengthens liver qi and soothe mind and spirit, is also known as mythic fungus in Chinese, and viewed by many as a magic elixir - food of immortality. (Divine Farmer's Herbal Medicine 《神农本草经》: "补肝气,安魂魄, 久食,轻身不老,延年神仙")

It also possesses the properties that help adjust the immune system, and prevent and heal the ailments that include tumor, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, hyper susceptibility and skin problems.
