The Ultimate Kidney Jing Fortifier and
#1 Anti-Aging Herb in Chinese Tonic Herbalism
The Legend of He Shou Wu…
This root is named after a man who became famous from its use. Neng Zi was born as a weak boy. When he grew up he never married because he was impotent. At the age of 58, one day he got drunk in the forest and fell asleep. He noticed roots that appeared in his mind to be “making love”. He dug these up and later made it into a tonic he could consume.
Within a short period of time he noticed a new energy flowing within his body. He began to feel virile, and could hardly contain his sexual drive. He continued taking He Shou Wu for years which made his grey hair turn black and he fathered many children.
The legend says he lived to 160 years old and fathered 19 sons and daughter. Not bad for starting out with a weak constitution and beginning on the herb at 58.

That means there are 20 lbs. of roots to every 1 lb. of finished extract. All the active constituents of the roots are concentrated to make this extract even more powerful.
He Shou Wu must be prepared properly to have its tonic properties. Raw, unprepared He Shou Wu is a strong laxative and should not be consumed regularly. It is potentially liver toxic in this form. However, in processed form, it is found to be protective of the liver. Beware of companies selling unprepared He Shou Wu as they are unaware of this fact.
Prepared He Shou Wu is extremely safe. In Lethal Dose 50 tests there was found to be no deaths even after 1000g/kg!
The only possible side effect that some people find is slightly soft stools and mild gastrointestinal discomfort though this is rare.
