About He Shou Wu Capsules

He Shou Wu contains pure extract of the He Shou Wu plant (aka Polygonum multiflorum or Fo-Ti) in high concentrations. The veggie capsules have remarkable rejuvenating properties. Among others, Fo-Ti helps protect and repair the DNA, boosts hair growth, and fights dry skin, backache, and tinnitus.

In the Traditional Chinese Medicine system, the plant is considered a Yin tonic and promotes receptivity too. This means that He Shou Wu also has psycho-spiritual effects as it not only helps enhance intuition and increase creativity but also opens us to our deeper awareness and spiritual nature. This is one of the reasons that make He Shou Wu an excellent herb for people seeking to further develop their experience of reality, including meditators and artists.

He Shou Wu Origins

He Shou Wu was originally known as jiaoteng. It didn’t take long before it got its new name, though, as it was recorded in ancient Daoist texts at around 812 AD when He Tianer, a weak, sterile, 58-year-old man from Hebei Province, found himself waking up next to an unusually long jiaoteng vine after a night of heavy drinking. Being curious about the strange plant, he decided to dig up its roots, which was a practice followed by many Chinese people at the time, and take the plant home for further investigation. A local monk then advised him consume jiaoteng so he could discover the effects of the plant for himself. After regular consumption of the plant, He Tianer saw his infertility problems disappear as he became the father of not only one but several children.

On top of that, he noticed that his grey hair switched back to its youthful black color, his vision improved significantly, his body became lively, strong, and energetic again, and felt like he had emerged a rejuvenated man. He lived until the age of 130 with his hair still black! After his death, the herb was named after He’s black hair (“shou” means head and “wu” means black). Some people consider this story a stretch of the imagination. However, credible scientific studies support and confirm the properties and health benefits of He Shou Wu.
