Don't think they understand Latin there...

Just googled and the Chinese name is Ge Gen.

Is this another ad-in-waiting?

I though is was/is. But it is a local IP addy so it might be a MLM'er testing the waters that why my answer - a local addy would probably indicate that the person actually knows the local name as well (I also googled it before telling him to see a TCM. But I'm watching. :wink:

The Chinese name is 葛根。It is a nice item and hard to find except China. You can find it at my site. http://www.omytang.com/-nice-figure-cap ... ules-.html

It was ever recorded in Compendium of Materia Medica and Chinese Medicine Dictionary since ancient time.

Cheers,
