Completely different from the asparagus vegetable, Red Asparagus Root is the ancient Taoist tonic herb used by spiritual seekers for generations to enhance meditation and produce an open-hearted feeling of levity above the mundane. Wild Asparagus root is a marvelous Shen tonic and Yin tonic. It was credited by Chinese wise men and women as being able to open the heart, prolong life, and also to the sexual functions of both men and women. It is also traditionally used in Chinese herbalism as a major lung and is widely used to add luster to the skin. It is also said that those who consume Asparagus over a long period of time come to feel so light and buoyant that they feel like they can fly.
