In place of Fu Zi we use a higher dosage of Rou Gui. The reason is that Fu Zi is a safe herb but if not used correctly for the correct condition can cause side effects. Fu Zi is needed in some cases, as examples: the aged or those with heart conditions. As an aphrodisiac or libido enhancer it depends totally on the patient’s condition. Those persons who feel they need the use of Fu Zi require a consultation. Hope you understand.]
