"It is not surprising to learn that the traditionally prepared Dit Da Jow contained a variety of bioactive compounds that are clearly beneficial for fist conditioning and impact trauma. The liniment is grounded in the long history of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which utilises the secret language of plants—chemistry (and science!). The carefully combined plants, fungi and insects that degraded and released their compounds into the alcohol over time produced a liniment rich with bioactive molecules. This time-dependent natural process also created differences between the aged liniments, with each containing a unique combination of bioactive compounds that can be useful for different applications."
