He Shou Wu

He Shou Wu root notably popular for turning gray hair back to its original color is one of the leading longevity Chinese herbs for its liver and kidney tonifying properties.  Also as a tonic for the endocrine glands, it improves health, stamina, and resistance to disease.  Cholesterol reducing due to its lecithin, studies show that it improves the cardiovascular system, enhances immune function, increases antioxidant activity, and reduces the accumulation of lipid peroxidation—making this a powerful herb to help prevent fatal diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, and stroke.


For the vanity driven, this herb is magic for faster, softer hair growth, thicker texture and preventing gray hair.  It’s also a Chinese remedy for premature aging, boosting hormonal balance to help with night sweats, boosting the libido in men and women, to increase energy, and to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

So what do I do with it?  Add 1 tablespoon into your hot tea, smoothies, and I even add it to my nut butters, as it’s the ultimate longevity powerhouse.
