He Shou Wu Extract (Polygonum multiflorum)



These herbal extracts are ideal for adding to herbal teas, or other beverages, and can also be added to foods. The usual dose of He Shou Wu extract would be 500 mg, with meals, 3 times a day.

Polygonum Multiflorum, or “He Shou Wu” is considered as one of the most important among Chinese herbal tonics. It has been anecdotally said to restore vitality and virility, working especially on the liver and the reproductive, urinary and circulatory systems.

This prolific vine has heart-shaped leaves and several different names: Chinese knotweed, shou wu, fo-ti, flowered fleece, and jiaotong (twisted vine) to name a few.

Like other invigorating herbs, polygonum can be taken regularly at moderate doses for months and years to have significant anti-aging results. Some people use this herb as a mild laxative, so it could be uncomfortable and even dangerous to consume a large amount of it at once. It has a slight sedative effect and it is therefore good to take it before going to sleep.
