Seahorses are used as a yang tonic, to increase sex drive, to treat weakness of sexual organs, to remove fatigue, etc. Seahorses are contraindicated in pregnancy because they promote the expulsion of fetus from the uterus (womb). Under Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), seahorses are utilized in the treatment of a variety of diseases.
