i'm taking what's called "female ginseng" -- dong quai in chinese. have been taking it almost 2 months, and i started taking it for female hormone imbalances. besides really alleviating some terrible symptoms of that, my hair is growing in lush and thick, with much less gray. i am losing weight after nearly a year of gaining and being stuck. and my sex drive is through the roof!!!
i can't say enough good about it and my expectations were that it would be a bottle of worthless snake oil.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
