He Shou Wu, also known as Ho Shou Wu, Polygonum Multiflorum or Fo-Ti, is one of the most revered anti-aging herbs in Asia.
He Shou Wu has been used for thousands of years to support the health of the kidneys, increase vitality and even promote the health of the hair.
We are delighted to provide the Highest Quality, traditionally prepared He Shou Wu extract, which is ready to consume and enjoy.
What Is He Shou Wu? (Fo-Ti)
He Shou Wu, pronounced huh show woo, is one of the most popular and revered herbs in Asian herbalism. It comes from the prepared tuberous root of Polygonum Multiflorum, a plant that grows in the mountains of Central and Southern China. He Shou Wu is sweet, bitter, astringent and slightly warming, and has widely been used in western herbalism under the names of "Fleeceflower" and "Fo-Ti".
The Legend Of He Shou Wu
The Legend begins with Neng Si, a weak man who never married nor had children, who fell asleep in the forest. Upon awakening, he stumbled across some vines and took them back to his cottage. He proceeded to ground them into a powder and took a small amount every day.
As the days and weeks went past, he began to experience more energy, becoming stronger and feeling more youthful. The legend goes that over time his hair became dark again, he fathered several children, and lived to be 160 years old.
The word quickly spread, and many Taoists began to include it in their elixirs and potions, with some even calling it a 'miracle herb'.
The Health Benefits Of He Shou Wu
Throughout history, He Shou Wu has been used in Asia to maintain the youthful condition and colour of the hair. It is often used in formulas to reverse both grey hair and balding.
Indeed in China, He Shou Wu translates as "Black Haired Mr. He"
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, He Shou Wu has been used to increase fertility, strengthen the immune system, promote vitality, calm the nervous system and promote healthy aging. It is believed that He Shou Wu is rich in antioxidants, and that is the reason for its anti-aging and longevity potential.

"I've been buying and using He Shou Wu from Hybrid Herbs for about 3 months. I am now feeling the benefits, together with finding a good, reliable supplier in Hybrid Herbs.
I will continue to use them as long as I use this product. This products has had good effects thus far.
My grey hair has subsided and I hope I will get even better effects over the next few months, not to mention the health benefits of tonifying internal organs"

"I have been using Hybrid Herbs He Shou Wu for over a year now, and I can truly say it works wonders.
I can always rely on it to recharge my battery to keep my adrenals happy when my work load increases, or when I'm feeling run down generally.
Somehow it restores me to such a deep level, down to the core of my essence. He Shou Wu is definitely my favourite yin jing herb, and Hybrid Herbs is one of the finest I have tried.
I find it really helps balance my hormones, which are usually damaged by stress.
He Shou Wu is definitely a herb I'll have in my daily health strategy for the long term"

Honestly I cannot talk enough about this product! It's my absolute favourite and when the package is half empty I get anxiety that I need more already. You instantly feel Hybrid herbs compared to other ones and I've tested quit a few. It's so earthy and just makes you have all the feels once ingested. Buy IT!

Hybrid Herbs are the herbs to be relied on and trusted.
This is part of my daily elixir and it keeps the kidney energy strong and me vital through an intense travelling and teaching schedule. It has to be smelled every time it's added to the elixir to remind me of its potency and its blessing to the body. 5 STARS!!!
The best He Shou Wu source I've found <3

Prior to taking He Shou wu I did A LOT of research into the true quality of products available online and I tried and tested many! Hybrid Herbs is by far the best brand I've found in the UK and I fully trust their source. A really wonderful product and a wonderful company, thank you!
A MUST HAVE
Posted by Lynda on 19th Jun 2018
HE SHOU WU must be part of a busy persons daily routine. The great tasting drink works!!!!! It relieves stress, revitalizes energy levels, and (for me) calms mind body and soul. I'm so grateful I've discovered He Shou Wu- -my favorite drink of the week is when I've finished work on a Friday night--simply can't recommend this product enough.

I’m using Fo-Ti for 8 months now, and it works. The effect is not instant, but over the months I have more black hair and they grow stronger. I did use some tablets from Amazon for almost a year and I didn’t have any results. That proves one thing – Hybrid Herbs is a trusted place to buy superfoods, medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs.

I’ve been trying different herbs and supplements over the past few months and have felt the best results with He Shou Wu, I’ve noticed reduced stress, calmness but also deeper reserves of energy and increased libido. It seems to improve a little bit of everything. I’ve tried extracts from other companies but Hybrid Herbs has so far been the best. It mixes and dissolves well in drinks without any grittyness and has quite a strong but not unpleasant earthy taste which to me shows it’s the real deal. Well recommended!

This is a lovely soft gentle flavour. I drink either as a nightly tea, helping me relax and unwind. Or mornings if I know I've a long stressful day. Really quite wonderful the calming effect. love it

Good product has solved my skin problem
will buy again
Posted by Julie Silver on 23rd Aug 2017
I heard positive things about He Shou Wu in a nutrition lecture and was so pleased to find such a great quality one in the UK from Hybrid Herbs. I did try a cheaper brand (also a prepared version) which didn't taste as good as the one from Hybrid Herbs and intuitively I felt it was not as effective. I have felt even healthier, calmer, and a stronger intuition, also my hair has definitely felt thicker since taking it for just a few months. As a nutritional therapist it is so great to find such a wonderful product to recommend that has so many positive benefits.
