He Shou Wu

Fleece-Flower Root 
or Fo-Ti

Radix Polygoni Multiflori

He Shou Wu is a commonly used herb in many formulas and tonics. It has recently been popularized by its aid in re-growing hair, keeping hair from turning grey prematurely, and keeping it healthy. This is due to the herb's ability to nourish and replenish blood and nourish the kidneys which in turn promote healthy growth of hair. 

He Shou Wu is the root tuber of Polygonum Multiforum Thunb., which is produced in all parts of China. Its root tuber is dug in autumn, washed clean, sliced and dried. This is called unprepared fleece-flower root. The unprepared fleece-flower root, mixed with black soybean milk, is steamed and dried alternately and repeatedly until the root becomes black, and prepared fleece-flower root is obtained.

It is bitter, sweet and astringent in flavor, slightly warming in property, acting on the liver and kidney channels. It has the effects of replenishing the vital essence and blood, curing malaria, clearing away toxins, moistening the intestines and relieving constipation.
