He Shou Wu: A Powerful Anti-Aging Tonic Herb

He Shou Wu is best known as an anti-aging herb. It promotes longevity and helps its users retain a youthful appearance. He Shou Wu is especially useful in preventing hair loss and graying of hair. People who have used the herb had seen a significant improvement of their gray hair and notice that the hair returns to its original color.

There is a Chinese legend that speaks of a man who was of a feeble constitution. He drank far too much and suffered from impotency. Because of this, he never got married. By the time he was in his fifties, his hair had almost completely turned white. One day, the man went up into the mountains and fell asleep in the forest, drunk. When he awoke, he saw a strange vine with which he was not familiar. He decided to dig up the vine and take it home.

A sage told the man that the plant was a celestial gift and would perhaps make him strong and potent. The man ate the root of the vine and began to feel vibrant and rejuvenated after just seven days. Over the next few months, he continued to eat the root every morning and became incredibly strong and started having frequent and powerful sexual urges. The color began to return to his hair and it became jet black again. He got married and fathered several sons. His sons also consumed the herb and they too were very healthy and strong. One of the sons had a son who then became the head of the family. His name was He Shou Wu. It means ‘Mr. He with black hair’ – He Shou Wu had jet black hair even when he was 130 years old.

He Shou Wu is used as a tonic that improves overall health, supports the endocrine glands, improves resistance to disease, and boosts stamina.
