Dried seahorses (also written as sea-horses) have a long history of being used medicinally in Oriental medicine. They are used whole or powdered. They are extremely popular as a male aphrodisiac and for promoting Kidney Yang, which is known for supporting fertility, immunity and general strength. Seahorses are a bestselling tonic in China, used by middle aged couples to “spice things up” in their sex life.
