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.

We are delighted to provide you the Highest Quality, Traditionally Prepared He Shou Wu. There are two forms of He Shou Wu in Traditional Chinese Medicine, raw and prepared. The prepared roots are stewed in black bean soup and then dried and have been found to have the more beneficial properties.

Marcus F - United States

"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"

Nick Davies - United Kingdom

"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"

    Magical Stuff

    Posted by Tom, UK. on 16th Jun 2018

    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!

    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.

    Very pleased so far

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Jul 2017

    Still only in my first 2 months but my hair seems to be getting darker and on the way of regaining its normal colour. Maybe it's just my wishful thinking, but time will tell. I am definitely reordering soon!

    well worth a try

    Posted by liz oke on 19th Apr 2016

    Having been a customer of Hybrid Herbs for a few months and enjoying their benefits, I bought this for my sister who was complaint about her hair. Fate had another thought as it ended up in a bag of supplements for my son who is severely autistic. I was having him tested for supplements that he needed and didn't need. He tested positive for this, so I added it to the growing list of hybrid herb products he is on. I truly believe it helps him cope with stress, and he is a changed person from the angry, frustrated boy he was a few years ago. Don't just try it for nice hair, try it for good heath and nice hair as a side effect.

    It's certainly worth trying!

    Posted by Jean Rodgers on 4th Mar 2016

    I bought the He Shou Wu on spec! I didn't know anyone who'd tried it but I was desperate, I was losing my hair!
    I must say I'm impressed with the results. Since drinking it as a tea the hair fall has almost stopped completely. I would definitely say give it a try, I'm so glad I did! I also took hair supplements at the same time so I guess between them I saved my hair.
