Huoshan Shihu (Dendrobium huoshanense) is located at the 31st parallel north, which runs through the four great ancient civilizations. It intersects with the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, and the lowest point, the Mariana Trench, as well as the magnificent pyramids. The main peak of the Dabie Mountains, where Huoshan Shihu grows, lies along this mysterious latitude.
Due to its potent medicinal value, many have attempted to transplant Huoshan Shihu to other regions. However, as you move north, the climate becomes increasingly arid, making it difficult for Shihu to survive. Conversely, in the south, the humid climate leads to rapid growth cycles, hindering the accumulation of nutrients and diminishing its nutritional value.
Huoshan County, located in the northernmost region of Dendrobium production in China, is shrouded in mist year-round within its mountainous terrain. The annual average temperature here is 15.2 degrees Celsius, with approximately 1000mm of annual rainfall and around 2600 hours of sunshine. The climate in this area is precisely at the critical point for Dendrobium growth, nurturing the unique Huoshan Shihu in its distinct forest climate.
Huoshan Shihu (Dendrobium huoshanense)
Huoshan Shihu’s uniqueness lies in its growth, as it clings to rocks. The small hairs on its roots not only absorb nutrients from the air but also draw in minerals produced by the weathering of rocks. This makes it a remarkable plant with both botanical and mineral properties. Huoshan Shihu contains compounds such as Shihu polysaccharides, Shihu alkaloids, Shihu amines, and amino acids. Essentially, all essential minerals and trace elements required by the body can be found in Huoshan Shihu.
Huoshan Shihu has a longer dormant period than a growth period. It needs to accumulate Shihu polysaccharides to withstand the harsh winter conditions before the arrival of autumn and winter each year. It takes approximately 4 to 5 years to complete its growth cycle.

The Multifaceted Health Benefits of Huoshan Shihu: A Natural Liver Support Wonder.
The liver resides within the human abdomen, beneath the right diaphragm, and typically weighs around 1-2.5 kg in adults. It serves as the primary organ responsible for breaking down foreign toxins. When the liver is functioning normally, it can eliminate approximately 99% of bacteria and toxins from the bloodstream. About four drops of blood pass through the liver for detoxification every minute. On a daily basis, the liver produces approximately 1 liter of bile, which helps remove toxins passing through the large intestine, ultimately excreting them into the natural environment.
It functions much like a chemical factory within the body, creating or recycling necessary substances while breaking down those that are not needed.
When liver cells become damaged, the first target is often the mitochondria. Mitochondrial damage leads to the release of aspartate aminotransferase (a key marker in medical liver function tests used to assess liver health) into the bloodstream. Elevated levels of aspartate aminotransferase in the bloodstream can significantly impair the liver’s detoxification function. Dendrobium polysaccharides form a protective lining in the stomach after consumption, reducing stomach damage while simultaneously enhancing liver metabolism. This can effectively inhibit the rise of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and safeguard our liver.
Support Skin Nutrition & Aid in Sleep (Nourishing Yin)
When the body’s fluid content decreases and fails to moisturize organs and viscera, the body exhibits dryness, and the skin loses elasticity. Yin deficiency often manifests in two ways: external skin, with obvious dryness and wrinkles, and internal overactivity of bodily functions, leading to emotional imbalances and severe insomnia. The precious dendrobium polysaccharides in Huoshan Shihu have immune-regulating activity and, when brewed, exhibit collagen-like stickiness that can activate cell energy. After taking it, the body quickly senses the magic of “plant collagen,” and long-term consumption helps the skin regain elasticity.
Promote Intestinal Motility
Dendrobium contains rich dietary fiber, effectively promoting gastrointestinal motility and the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria, helping to stabilize blood lipid and cholesterol levels and maintain intestinal health. Ancient medical texts such as the “Shennong Bencao Jing” and “Bencao Gangmu” record that Huoshan Shihu is beneficial for the intestines when taken regularly.
The right to food
The right to food, and its variations, is a human right protecting the right of people to feed themselves in dignity, implying that sufficient food is available, that people have the means to access it, and that it adequately meets the individual’s dietary needs.
