    I simply can’t say enough about this product. I stumbled upon it when I was looking to repurchase The Great Mender. I have had chronic foot pain for many months and after using this tincture 3 times a day for a few days, I am pain free! I will always stay stocked up on it and have already recommended it to several friends and family. I’m also amazingly impressed and grateful for the customer support I have received. I got all my questions answered and easily learned how to use this amazing product.
    Thank you!!

    I just wanted to pass this on to you. You may probably already know this but I’ll share it anyway. I’ve been using Ancestors for over a month now and it appears to be working very well on my hand conditioning. I have tried a technique I’ve used on other liniments in the past immediately after workouts and that is, I would then soak my hands a bit in the warmest water I can stand. This opens the pores. I then applied the liniment. I did this with Ancestors and I was totally shocked after looking at my hands only minutes later. All the normal redness and lightly broken vessels were gone in minutes with little sign of even having worked out. The heavier bruising was still lightly visible but the normal pain was also reduced almost immediately. Using this as a daily routine, it shortens recovery and relieves pain and bruising quicker. Along with this the good thing is, that you don’t have to leave it on your hands for very long. My wife really doesn’t like the smell but that’s not a big problem because you can wash the residue off after a couple minutes. With the open pores it only really takes seconds for the medicinal portion of the potion to be absorbed.
    I normally work my hands with the sandbag and twine wrapped 2×4, 3 days a week.
    Also as an FYI, I have had zero negative affects of this interfering with my blood thinner med Warfarin. There are some liniments that do affect the thinning of the blood but Ancestors does not.
    Thanks for your blog and updates that I receive. They are very helpful in making decisions on other products. On that note, my wife had a couple pretty nasty painful bruises on her arm. Being I had such good results on my hands with treating bruising and pain I tried it on her arm. With just a couple applications of Ancestors, the pain was gone and the bruises are almost un-noticeable.
    Using Ancestors has been a very positive experience and by far the best product of its kind I’ve ever used.

    I am very impressed with the effectiveness of Plum dragon dit da jow Products . I am more than surprised by how fast it worked and how quickly it is improving the strength of my hands / fists.

    Prior to using Plum dragon dit da jow Products , I had reached a point where the pain and swelling from my makiwara training were becoming too much for me to continue advancing. It is still incredible how in a matter of days of using the Plum dragon dit da jow , my hands, fists, wrists feel stronger, the swelling has gone away, the pain is minimal and I am now working on going to a new level of striking power in my training and Plum Dragon products to Enhance martial Arts Training of Any Levels also I believe that Plum Dragon will be serving the local community as well the International community

    I cannot express how amazing this stuff really is! Thank you to Plum Dragon. I am glad I found you.
    Many Thanks Khalid Jamal

    When I found Plum Dragon Herbs website it was a sensation! Excellent products and very educational information. Thank you very much for doing a wonderful job 🙂

    I’m Licensed Massage Therapist (more then 20y of experience) and I was a Karate coach for a 10y. Since I moved to USA ten years ago and can’t bring herbs I was using in Ukraine, I did a lot of research for an alternative I can use for my Medical Massage, Sport injuries and joint pain relief supplements. I’m using the ancestors advanced iron palm dit da jow and the Ho family dit da jow. I’m using it on myself because I have hand arthritis and a couple broken bokens. Your product worked magically. I also use the Ho family dit da jow on my clients (with their permission) and I’ve had wonderful reviews. Lastly I want to thank you for the very educational articles on your website. Thank you very much.

    I purchased the half gallon jar of Ancestors Jow to help my hands and forearms recover from Iron Palm/Iron Forearm training. If you are striking harder mediums (gravel/steel shot) this is the Jow to get! I actually broke both of my wrists (at the same time) playing sports decades ago and I wish I had know about this Jow then. I am amazed that it is also effective when using to treat old injuries. It works…It works…It works!

  7. Gerard Lee

    5 stars for sure. I’m pretty knew to using DDJ, but I’ve used several preaged DDJ from Plum Dragon. This Jow is strong! I’ve used it to help rehabilitate a twelve year old injury. I broke both bones in my forearm and have had range of motion and strength issues since. Tradition rehab was painful and showed very little gains, but the same rehab exercises with the use of this Jow, I’ve been able to make astonishing gains. I’ve progressed more in a month than in years before!
    I’ve used it on my wife’s sprained ankle. After 15 minutes of massaging the Jow, she had s drastic reduction in pain and after a half hour a noticeable reduction in swelling. (I have before and after pics and it’s effects are undeniable. )
    In conclusion, buy it! Every time I use it on a new injury, I feel silly and that it’s not going to work, because I grew up with western medicine philosophy. Rubbing a potion on your skin to become stronger and heal faster is from legends and fantasies. My doubts are smashed every time.
    Awesome stuff!
    DDJ will always have a place in my medicine cabinet and first aid kits.

    This stuff is POWERFUL! Nothing out there like it that I’ve found either. Good stuff. I like the smell too, and more importantly, my wife doesn’t mind it. Thank goodness!

    I have been studying and teaching Taijiquan for over a decade now, and the past five years or so introduced me to Iron Hand and it’s myriad benefits to the serious martial artist. I came across Plum Dragon Herbs while searching for a good jow to use, as I had otherwise been limited to browsing the local Chinese herb stores and trying to find the herbs specified in the recipe I had been given.

    Over the years I have found Josh to be unfailingly humble, gracious, and ever forthcoming with both extensive knowledge and advice on various forms of training, different herbs to help for given situations, and different formulas for specific kinds of training and circumstances.

    What you see written in the description about the Ancestors’ Advanced formula is absolutely true, and I will vouch for all of it, having utilized it in my own training on a lead shot bag. When used with proper massage and training, this formula is pretty much as good as it gets for iron palm training, and you would be hard pressed to find a better ‘all around’ jow for iron hand conditioning and related qigong.

    I would also like to enthusiastically repeat what has been said about the service of Plum Dragon Herbs, and reiterate the fact that I have been a customer for several years, and there is definitely a reason. This is the best (and the only!) company that I trust for Chinese herbs and concoctions!

  10. Gilbert

    I have been using this product for 3 months and any damage that got my iron palm training was soon healed over a short period of time .


    VERY VERY strong as it describes…. my house almost exploded! This is my favorite liniment type to use when its time for my beating. If anyone out there is serious about IRON hand/iron body training, buy this… you will not be disappointed!!!!!

  12. franklin.g.dukes

    Have been using this in conjunction with my iron palm/forearm training. While training I have bruised my thumb, hands and wrists. After applying this Dit Da Jow I noticed that the pain was dramatically reduced. The next morning the bruising had gone away…completely. This stuff really works!

  13. James Brazas

    I have been using your Advanced Ancestors Jow for elbow and knee conditioning and I am *very* impressed! I have been making excellent progress and I can really feel the difference in terms of both iron skill performance as well as internal energy – my elbows and knees are dense as rock now! It is without doubt the best Dit Da Jow I have ever seen and everyone in our Kung Fu class has been thoroughly impressed! You may very well get several new customers! As a side bonus, the smell is wonderful.

  14. Robbie

    Excellent product.

  15. Philippe

    It’s been many years now that I am training in Iron Palm training and diverse Iron Skills. I’ve tried many formulas from many lineage and suppliers. I am at the level of training that some will consider ”advanced” by striking steel, breaking concrete slabs and coconuts. This is my favorite Jow! It is really serving its purpose : being one of the most powerful formula for advance bone, sinews, ligaments and tendons conditioning. The feel is great, the smell is refreshing and the results are overwhelming. If you are searching for a powerful Jow for advance conditioning, this is the one to go!

  16. dmifdmif

    You don’t have to be a martial artist to benefit from this wonderful jow! My sport is mountain trail running and I have several chronic injuries that are finally being helped by this jow. Great stuff!
