He Shou Wu
He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) – also known as fo ti- is the great yin tonic herb of the Orient, recognised by Taoists for its life-extending capacities (by increasing jing).
Other names: fo ti, Polygonum multiflorum, ho shou wu, chinese knotweed, climbing knotweed.
Ingredients: Our Wild He Shou Wu Root is prepared traditionally and harvested from it’s natural home in China’s Chiang Bai mountains (see our article on Di Tao for why we source our herbs from China). It is a water extract 10:1 powder, that is carefully dried to maintain the active constituents of the herb.
The freshly picked he shou wu tubers are sliced, stewed in black bean soup (in a proportion of 10 parts HSW to 1 part black beans) until the soup is exhausted. The “prepared” roots are then dried for water extraction. We use NO chemicals in the production of any of our herbs.
