Giant redwood – Young shoots


Key notes:

  • Antisenescence to males (jing tonic); 17 ketosteroid precursor, improving neuro-sexual functional syndromes
  • Osteopenia and osteoporosis; increases osteoblastic activity and is a precursor to estrogen
  • Adrenal tonic; use lower doses for women


Therapeutic actions:

Sequoia gigantea therapeutic activity focuses both at the osteo-articular and nervous system.

Its main site of action is on the glandular and nervous system.

Adrenal tonic (use lower doses for women).

Efficient antisenescent in elderly, acting on a geriatric plane increasing the physical and moral force.

It is a sexual tonic – male rejuvenator (reequilibrate spermatogenesis – precursor for the 17-ketosteroids), it stimulates immunity and delays aging both at the sexual level and in general.

By its endocrine mobilisation it has a tonic action at the intellectual level (aged brain) and an overall eutrophic action (relative to a good nutrition performance, in a normal state).

It is a mental and general tonifying remedy, acting slowly but in depth; it needs to be taken for some time to see permanent effects.

Sequoia gigantea acts as a powerful hepatic drainer, useful for a congested liver.

Musculoskeletal: Stimulates the metabolism of the osteoblasts, enhancing mineralisation and creating a better quality bone tissue.


Avoid taking in the evening because it can delay, even hinder, falling asleep.

Pregnant women should avoid taking bud extracts with hormonal action like Quercus robur (Oak), Rubus idaeus (Raspberry), Sequoia gigantea (Giant redwood), Vaccinium vitis-idaea (Cowberry).

Often administered in lower doses for women.
