He Shou Wu, also known as Polygonum multiflorum, is a revered root with a long history of documented uses since ancient times. It has also gained recognition from the modern scientific community. This herb is popular in traditional Chinese medicine, referred to as He shou wu in China and Fo-ti in North America.

Numerous studies have demonstrated the potential benefits of He Shou Wu in various areas, including cancer treatment, support for diabetes, addressing hair loss, combating hardening of the arteries, and addressing neurodegenerative diseases. Additionally, it has a rich tradition as a spiritual herb, known among monks and healers for its ability to boost spiritual potency.

It provides approximately 109 servings (using 1/2 tsp per serving).

Anti-Inflammatory
The TSG and emodin in Fo-Ti have been studied for their ability to decrease inflammation. Emodin, in particular, protects microglia cells in the brain from inflammation due to lipopolysaccharides through AMPK/Nrf2 activation.

Promotes Immune Function
Fo-Ti contains sugars (rhamnose, arabinose, xylose, and glucose) and anthraquinone glycosides that can improve immune response and overall immune system function (immunomodulatory effect). It boosts the immune system by increasing the production of T and B cells, improving the activities of immune cells, and increasing the secretion of the inflammatory tumor necrosis factor. Furthermore, Fo-Ti increases the activity of natural killer (NK) cells.

Anti-Viral
Fo-Ti exhibited anti-HIV properties by preventing the virus from entering lymphocytes in a cell-based study.

Protects the Liver
The anthraquinones and polysaccharides found in Fo-Ti protect the liver by reducing inflammation, preventing fat oxidation, and increasing antioxidant effects.

Protects Bones from Oxidative Stress
TSG from Fo-Ti extract protects bone-making cells (osteoblasts) from oxidative damage in a cell-based study, suggesting its potential to protect against osteoporosis due to oxidative stress.

Protects Tissue Oxygenation in Diabetes
2,3,5,4'-Tetrahydroxystilbene-2-O-β-d-glucoside protects against kidney damage from high blood sugar in diabetic mice through SIRT1 and TGF-beta1 pathways.

Neuroprotective Effect
Studies suggest that Fo-Ti may have a positive impact on Alzheimer's Disease, as tetrahydroxystilbene glucoside from Fo-Ti has been shown to help with memory deficit. Clinical trials in China found that Fo-Ti extract is effective against Alzheimer's disease, and it has also been found to slow down age-related memory loss in rats. In cell-based studies, treatment with a Fo-Ti root extract reduced amyloid plaque that can contribute to Alzheimer's disease.

1/2-1tsp (we recommend everyone to listen to their body intuitively, follow the dosage that resonates the most with you.)

He Shou Wu 10:1 extract powder is prepared using the traditional method with black beans and does not contain any fillers or additives. It's important to be aware that many Fo-Ti products in the market contain maltodextrin. Our product is made from semi-wild roots, sustainably grown on a small farm in China from an authentic source in Yunnan, a very pristine and indigenous area in China were He Shou Wu thrives.
