“It’s always easier to prevent health problems than solving them.”
“I went places in life but finally I decided to come back and join my childhood friends in order to start our own dendrobium business.”
Dendrobium (石斛) ?
“It’s a type of an orchid from Himalayas that has a long thin stem. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years and has many uses. It nourishes the skin and improves functioning of the lungs, kidneys, stomach, reduces your thirst, boosts your immune system and people say it even treats impotency. When air pollution and smoke dry out your lungs which also increases thirst, dendrobium can be used in the form of tea to moisten the passageways. Oh, … and it’s amazing on hangovers.”
Is it expensive?
“There are several species of dendrobium with different prices up to 4000 kuai for a kg (600€/kg), we grow the slow growing one that is harvested every 18 months.”
