Did you know…that the longest-living man’s secret to longevity was the use of two best herbs, ginseng and fo-ti, for health benefits which deliver the “elixir of youth” effect?

Li Ching-Yun, resident of the Kaihslen region in the province of Szechwan, was a Chinese herbalist, martial artist and former university professor who had the longest confirmed lifespan in history. He lived to be 256 years old (1677-1933).

According to one account of Li’s married life, he outlived 23 wives and was living with his 24th wife — a woman of 60 — at the time he was over 200 years old. A New York Times article published at the time of his death in 1933 reported, “Many who have seen him recently declared that his facial appearance is no different from that of a person two centuries his junior.” (S.
