Cnidium is a plant that is native to China. It is also commonly found in other parts of Asia. The fruit, seed, and other plant parts are used as medicine.

Cnidium is most commonly used for increasing sexual performance and sex drive, erectile dysfunction (ED), and skin conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support any of its uses.

Cnidium is a common ingredient in Chinese lotions, creams, and ointments.

How does it work ?

Cnidium contains chemicals that might kill cancer and bacterial cells, reduce swelling (inflammation), strengthen bones, decrease itching, and increase sex drive.
