Limited Batch of 200 Bottles
The Favorite Herb of Genghis Khan, known as
“Cistanche in Your Pants”
Now available as Logan’s Private Reserve SPAGYRIC Tincture
Our Organic Dual Extracted Cistanche Powder is one of our most popular items at Lost Empire Herbs despite it being one of the most expensive things we’ve got.
As a premier Yang Jing herb of Chinese Medicine, this one packs a punch. That’s why it’s featured in both Thor’s Hammer and Hercules Formulas as well.
It was a favorite herb of the mighty and ruthless ruler Genghis Khan…with estimates that 8% of Asia’s population are his descendants.
It has been called “Cistanche in Your Pants” due to its effects in sexual function.* In fact, it was the most commonly used ingredient in sexual formulations by the Chinese by far.
Also known as the “Stalk Enlarger”
For guys looking for bigger members, it does happen but not for most.
So yes, it does happen, but I wouldn’t even say for most. Energy, stamina, drive, and the like are much more likely to happen, but neither are those guaranteed.
A Wide Range of Other Systemic Benefits
While its reputation and principal function may be for sex, that is not all this mighty herb can do for you.
- Anti-Fatigue Activity
- Improve Memory Function and Learning by Increasing Nerve Growth Factor
- Stimulates Nitric Oxide production
- Hormone Regulation
- Promotes Healthy Inflammatory Response

- Stimulates ATP
It helps the immune system, the hormones, the nervous system, inflammation and even more.*

As I dove deeper into herbalism, I learned about the REAL art of alchemy (not turning lead to gold, what most people think it’s about) specifically the spagyric arts with herbal plant material.
The idea behind a spagyric tincture is that the “salt” is added back in, which normal tinctures completely lack, just having the “mercury” and “sulfur” compounds. (Please note these are the philosophical elements, not to be confused with the chemicals by the same name. I’m trying to explain this in a way that doesn’t take an hour or more of training!)
“Salt,” as the most earthy part, in reality, the mineral matrix of the plant, makes the tincture more embodied…which in turn helps it to better work within your body. This is why you can often get better results with a lower dosage on a spagyric tincture vs. a regular tincture.
Quality and Processing
The Cistanche used for this tincture come from China. The species is Cistanche deserticolae. Before tincturing it is prepared by drying, soaking and then steaming in red rice wine. This process helps to strengthen it’s Kidney Yang tonifying abilities.
The Cistanche was then tinctured for over six weeks in a menstruum made with:
• Organic Cane Alcohol 40% ABV
• Fresh but Filtered Spring Water, sourced from the Santa Cruz Mountains.
After pressing the Cistanche stems, they’re calcined and ground down into a fine, then further extracted with distilled water and a gentle evaporation process until crystals are formed. These purified “salts” are added back into the tincture to finish the process.
In Chinese Medicine, the color BLACK is associated with the energy JING. This tincture is a deep beautiful black color.
The taste is primarily SALTY, associated with the Water element and Kidney meridian. There is also some sweetness to it as well. It is definitely an acquired taste!
Some people may find that the powdered extract works better for them. Others, like myself, prefer tinctures for their ease of use.
The recommended dosage is one dropper daily. This comes in a one-fluid-ounce bottle, so there are about 40 droppers per bottle.
At the recommended dose a bottle will last about 40 days.
This dose is just a starting point. You can modify the dose up or down as you best see fit.
