Fo-Ti – Ancient rejuvenating tonic herb
Fo-Ti is one of the most popular and highly revered tonic herbs in Asian herbalism. It is the prepared tuberous root of the Chinese knotweed, a plant that grows in the mountains of central and southern China. It shares the position as the primary herb tonic of Chinese herbalism with the Goji berry. Fo-Ti is widely used in Chinese herbalism as a tonic to prevent premature aging by tonifying the kidney and liver functions. It is unsurpassed in its ability to provide deep, primordial energy (Yin, essence) to the cells of the body via the kidney system as described in Chinese health philosophy.
Fo-Ti is also known as "He Shou Wu", which literally means "Black-haired Mr. He" in reference to an ancient story of a Mr. He who restored his vitality, sexual potency and youthful appearance by taking the herb now named after him. Millions of men and women make use of He Shou Wu in the Far East - they take it for its rejuvenating and toning abilities.
Individuals who show physical signs of premature aging, such as premature greying of hair and wrinkling of skin are often prescribed Fo-Ti as a first step. It is widely used in Asia to maintain the youthful condition and color of the hair, reducing symptoms of alopecia. This is one of its most popular attributes.
Fo-Ti is also used for its ability to nourish the blood and fortifying the muscles, tendons and bones. The main reason for the use of the herb is that it will help the body function in a much better balanced and healthy manner.
