Long ago, old Mr. He became lost in the forest. Years later, those who found him were astonished. The old man's hair had turned from white to black. In order to sustain himself, he lived on the root of the common wild vine Polygoni Multiflori. Today, the plant bears his name, Ho Shou Wu (Old Mr. He) . In the West this root is known as Shou Wu or FoTi.
Dr. Shen's Shou Wu Pill contains only five years old or older, export grade (the highest) Ho Shou Wu (90%). Small amounts (5%) of premium Poria are added to enhance digestability and absorbtion. Chuanxiong (5%) is added as a messenger herb, to invigorate the Ho Shou Wu and direct the action of the formula upward to the head.
Take as a daily supplement, one to four tabs, two to three times a day, or as prescribed for 3 or more weeks.
