The herb of immortality comes from China and is a national drink in a remote mountainous region of the vast country. In Xianxao, as this area is called, there are an above-average number of (healthy!) people over 100 years old and the cancer rate is exceptionally low. It was only about 15 years ago that it was rediscovered and chosen as one of the ten most important tonic herbs in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).
