  • Pro-longevity.*
Lost Desert Oasis Cistanche tubulosa Extract Powder Is:

UPDATE: In our goal of providing you with products of the highest quality and highest integrity, we have improved the potency of this product.

Previously, Lost Desert Oasis Cistanche tubulosa Extract was available as a 10:1 extract. We are now offering it as part of our ultra-pure Unstandardized Extracts (Similar to Pine Pollen, Nettle Root, Black Ant Powder). These are approximately 50:1 (50x) concentration. This type of extract is known as a Chún Fěn extract, literally translating to Pure Powder (learn more about these cleaner, stronger extracts here).

The price of this product has gone up roughly 10%. There is no way around this. With the 5x increase in potency comes a substantial increase in our costs to produce it.

Overview

Cistanche tubulosa is an adaptogenic and tonic herb of the highest accord.

Cistanche excels where many well known adaptogens and adaptogenic formulas fail: Those offering stimulatory properties which are unsustainable. Instead, Cistanche is well balanced and deeply restorative.

This makes Cistanche tubulosa perfect for many of our customers at RAW Forest Foods—and since introducing this herb in 2012, Cistanche has remained one of our most popular products.

Our Lost Desert Oasis Cistanche tubulosa Extract is crafted with select, cultivated Cistanche. Historically, Cistanche salsa was used in place of Cistanche tubulosa; however, Cistanche salsa is highly endangered and thus unethical to use.

Cistanche tubulosa offers an excellent alternative, providing greater effects with higher concentrations of many of the active compounds present in the two plants.

Excelling in Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Classical Chinese medicine illuminates what we—and our customers—experience using Cistanche: Cistanche rebuilds the most fundamental health and energy reserves of the body. With no separation between the body and mind, these effects encompass physical health while promoting mental and emotional characteristics usually ascribed to the young, such as creativity, flexibility, desire, and more. As a tonic (adaptogenic) herb, Cistanche is considered to benefit:

  • The Kidney
  • The Jing
  • The Marrow
  • And in women, the uterus.*

Behind the Name: The Lost Desert Oasis

We named this product The Lost Desert Oasis for two reasons. The first because it is grown, quite literally, in an oasis of the Takla Makan Desert.

The second because of the way it feels in the body: Bringing in a source of deep rejuvenation—Similar to what we imagine finding an oasis in a desert might feel like.

Customer Reviews of Lost Desert Oasis Cistanche tubulosa Extract Powder

<em>Cistanche tubulosa</em>

Only Getting Better

I have been using Cistanche from RAW Forest Foods since they started offering it. Before that I used the "Salsa" extract from another (big name) company. I have to say, this is by far the best extract, because it seems to be much stronger. Since they've been selling it, it has changed a bit but seems to only be getting better. I'm still using it and it has helped me tremendously. Sex drive is up and my skin looks great (57 y/o male) so what more can I say?! I highly recommend this product, but warn that it has a very salty taste.

High Quality

I have been using this product for 2 weeks and immediately noticed on day 1 that it is high quality. I have been using this product for two weeks just before my morning workout. I feel a burst of energy and I have more stamina. I am prone to kidney stones, but with use of this product which is a kidney tonic so far so good.

— Neil
Pure and Best!

RAW Forest Food products are top notch in quality. I can't recommend them enough. You will absolutely feel the effects, no placebo. I also like knowing their products are unadulterated, and organic, when possible.

Cistanche Extract Key Benefits

Our Lost Desert Oasis Cistanche tubulosa Extract is crafted with select-harvested Cistanche. In Chinese herbal medicine, Cistanche is considered a potent, well balanced Yang tonic.

Research into Cistanche tubulosa has shown it to contain high levels of Echinacoside, which is present in Echinacea, Acteoside, and Kankanoside. The main emphasis in the clinical application of Cistanche extract is to scientifically validate the folk use of the plant as a potent anti-aging tonic and a strong yang tonic.

Research has focused on several broad areas: anti-aging and antioxidant properties, improvement of brain function, aphrodisiac properties, immune system restoration, anti-fatigue and metabolism, and skin quality rejuvenation.

Cistanche tubulosa is a superior anti-aging food and strong sexual rejuvenator.

In Chinese medicine, this well balanced restorative Yang tonic is used as a premier tonic to nourish Kidney, Jing, Essence, and Blood. Clinically validated as an aphrodisiac and in doubling testosterone production in in vivo testing, it also has strong age reversing effects on the skin and brain. It is tonic and adaptogenic, with pro-androgenic and longevity properties. It has also been shown to prevent lipid peroxidation, which is the oxidative degradation of lipids by free-radicals. Furthermore, Cistanche has been shown to reverse sun damage and enrich and replenish energy.

This is an ideal herb for those looking for a tonic adaptogen to help with immune system support and anti-aging, boasting the same chemicals as echinacea, but with added longevity properties.

Cistanche tubulosa May Support

  • Anti-aging and antioxidant properties;
  • Improvement of brain function;
  • Strong aphrodisiac and sexual health restoration;
  • Significantly increases testosterone production;
  • Increases vasodilation;
  • Immune system modulator;
  • Anti-fatigue properties and metabolism correction;
  • Skin quality rejuvenation;
  • Anti-oxidant properties 15 times greater than resveratrol;
  • Strengthen bowel movements;
  • Promote healthy circulation and circulatory system;
  • Nutrition and nourishment;
  • Increase strength and athletic performance.*

Research into Cistanche tubulosa has shown it to contain high levels of Echinacoside (present in Echinacea), Acteoside (an antioxidant stronger than resveratrol), and Kankanoside (a vasodilator).* This is the Lost Desert Oasis.

Sourcing of Cistanche

Cistanche tubulosa is known as a rare version of common Panax ginseng, found in the Hotan region, an oasis in the Takla Makan Desert, in the sparsely populated Hsinchiang Uighur Autonomous region of northwestern China, southern Russia, and southern Mongolia.

The extreme desert conditions of the Takla Makan Desert produce the perfect environment for a perfect Yang Tonic to grow in. It thrives with beautiful, vibrant flowers in an otherwise hostile environment, which prepares us to similarly thrive in an increasingly hostile world.

The Hotan region has one of the four longest life expectancies in the world. This is the area where Cistanche tubulosa grows.

The percentage of elderly people that live to be over 100 years old in this region is the highest in all of China, over three times that of Okinawa Prefecture in Japan, which is famous for its peoples' longevity. Per 100,000 people, Okinawa has 51 people aged over 100 and Hotan has 183 such people. People of the Hotan region consume Cistanche tubulosa daily and this habit is believed to be the key to peoples' longevity in the region.

Where to Buy Cistanche tubulosa Extract Powder?

RAW Forest Foods offers bulk, 70 gram pouches of Cistanche tubulosa Extract Powder, with 35 servings (2 grams per serving) per pouch. As with all of our products, we source our ingredients as close to the producers—the farms and the forests—as possible, visiting sites and meeting with growers, wild-harvesters, and processors.

How to Use Cistanche tubulosa Extract

cistanche-tubulosa-extract-powder-supplement-facts.jpgIndications

Suggested Usage

Suggested Usage is 2 grams (roughly 3/4 tsp.) 1 — 2 times daily, preferably on an empty stomach. As with all dietary supplements, please consult a qualified healthcare practitioner prior to use.

How to Use Our Powdered Extracts

Our favorite way to consume this product is by combining it with 4-6 ounces of warm or hot water and drinking it on an empty stomach. Learn more about using all of our products here.

CAUTION: Do not exceed recommended dose.

Not for use by those under the age of 18, who are pregnant or nursing, or who are allergic or averse to any of the ingredients contained within.

How to Use Tonic and Adaptogenic Herbs

Cistanche tubulosa is an adaptogenic and tonic herb, and so being, consistency and time are vital in receiving the full benefits of it.

Adaptogens and tonics are herbs which work with the body to produce change and adaptation. In fact, the root word in "adaptogen" is adapt. This type of change—this type of adaptation—requires dedication, consistency, and time, but it is also the most profound and the most beneficial.

Before evaluating the effectiveness of any adaptogen or tonic, we advocate a trial of between four and six weeks of daily use.

Similar to exercise, while a single workout is good for you and will most likely make you feel better, no real change will be seen without dedication, consistency, and time.

RAW Forest Foods offers a full 60 days refund policy on all products. This extended refund policy allows ample time for a customer to judge the effectiveness of these types of products.

And as the saying goes, "Give yourself enough time to be successful." And this applies to adaptogens, too.

Ideal Storage

Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use if safety seal is damaged or missing. Store at room temperature.

Cycling Herbs

Herb cycling schedules can be beneficial when healing. If you prefer to rotate your adaptogenic, pro-androgenic, and tonic herbs, we suggest a schedule of five days on, and two days off, or four weeks on and one week off. *

    I have tried several other brands of Cistanche and much prefer this one. I recently read a study that this is very helpful for auto-immune problems and I have had CFS for 30 years. I feel much better taking this product along with Taproot and Pine Pollen Extract. Keep up the good work RAW Forest Foods!!

  • Quality Cistanche 5

    Posted by Jim on Aug 05, 2017

    I've bought from a lot of different suppliers over the years, and in my opinion Raw Forest does a great job in providing high-quality products. I've been very pleased with the quality and results of the Cistanche. Like all your products, it smells, tastes and looks fresh, and the effects are potent. Great stuff, keep up the good work! And if you've never tried Cistanche, you should give it a shot. If it's good enough for Genghis Khan, it's good enough for you.

  • Cistanche 5

    Posted by Steve on Jan 13, 2017

    Making a tea with 1/2 tsp. Cistanche and 1 tsp. pine pollen powder. Drinking upon waking and when I get home from work. I'm a healthy 58 yr. old male and never had ED. However, T was kind of low (300's) and felt worn out most days and nights. Have been doing this for about a week and clearly have more energy and libido. Looking forward to next blood test...
