The Chinese have been combining herbs for thousands of years and through trial and error, have come up with a number of herbal formulas and vitamins that have been proven to positively affect male performance and virility. A lot of these treatments are just now being proven by medical researchers and doctors to have measurable chemical benefits. One specific Chinese herb used for male impotence is the world famous ginseng plant, which had been for used in Eastern medicine since time immemorial for a variety of reasons. In one double blind study, after taking ginseng extract for just a week, about 60 percent of men showed significant improvements in their impotency.
A less popular ancient herb also by the Chinese used to increase male virility and treat infertility is Fo-ti, specifically its root. It is widely used in China for the treatment of both female and male infertility and is also believed to have life extending qualities. Studies conducted in the West have proven these benefits to be true and more studies are being conducted to determine the other benefits of this herb.
