On the same morning of our visit to the Taipei 101 Mall our group made an unscheduled stop at a ‘touristy’ shop that deals in a variety of products that promise to reverse the effects of aging. This shop offered products of plant and animal origin and available in powder or cream depending on how you’re going to consume or apply them. There was even a demo at the end of the presentation where a deer carcase was crushed then pulverized into form powder for convenient consumption. I am glad I had the opportunity to document our visit there from beginning to end to share with everyone. I should warn you before you scroll down the page. If you’re particularly sensitive to images of animal carcases then I suggest you look away and let WordPress surprise you with a random post from my blog instead.
The hype: “Placenta is an embryonic tissue formed during pregnancy from the cells of the fetus. The unique biological compounds in placenta ensure that the fetus is supplied with the necessary nutrients and oxygen needed for successful growth. Chinese antiaging and restorative formulations have often relied upon placenta as a primary ingredient in formulations designed to rejuvenate the body. Deer placenta has been accepted as the premier source of placenta. Deer is considered to be a “higher order” animal, and deer placenta very closely resembles human placenta chemically. It is extraordinarily nourishing and is completely safe to consume. The placenta is the source of this nourishment. Taking deer placenta as a deep Jing restorative supplement is like plugging yourself into the wall socket and recharging your life battery. Deer placenta provides certain substances that have been shown to have a profound positive influence on the aging process.”
