Cnidium Monnieri is an annual herb that is indigenous to China, where the plant is found growing in ditches and the edges of fields. However, it also grows in Russia, Mongolia and Korea and has be found growing as an invasive species in Oregon.
Cnidium Monnieri has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for many years to treat skin conditions as an ingredient in ointments, creams and lotions. In Chinese, Cnidium fruit is She Chuang Zi.
However, much excitement is being generated among those who suffer from sexual dysfunction and who want to enhance their libido because of the sexual wellness benefits and uses the herbal plant offers.
Treatment for sexual dysfunction.
Cnidium seeds are believed to naturally help boost the libido as well as addressing male sexual and erectile dysfunction (ED). Pure natural Cnidium Monnieri is considered an aphrodisiac and reproductive aid.
It has been used by both men and women to help with sexual conditions such as low sex drive, impotence and erectile dysfunction.
For ED, many herbalists will often prescribe it’s use in an herbal “stack” along with schisandra berry tea and/or horny goat weed. Anecdotal evidence indicates that, while not a PDE5 inhibitor like Cialis (tadalafil) or Viagra (sildenafil), these herbal stacks are often incredibly effective in promoting penis health and the ability to achieve and maintain erection.
Why does it work so well as a natural erection enhancer? Because of the coumarin compounds called osthole (or just osthol), imperatorin, isopimpinellin and auraptenol. The extract of osthole was shown in a study on rabbits to have wonderful erection-enhancing properties by increasing nitric oxide levels and blood flow needed to maintain erection.
To help treat this condition, this herb is turned into a paste and then it is applied to the affected area. It has been observed to help soothe and treat the affected area and is a pure natural remedy to treat skin conditions like eczema, irritation and itchiness, and ringworm.
