He Shou Wu (pronounced huh –similar to English "huh", but not as open – show woo) is one of the most popular and highly revered tonic herbs in Asian herbalism. He Shou Wu is the prepared tuberous root of Polygonum multiflorum, a plant that grows in the mountains of central and southern China. It shares the position as the primary essence tonic of Chinese herbalism with the Goji berry.

He Shou Wu helps maintain the strength and stability of the lower back and knees, fortifying the muscles, tendons and bones. It is used to maintain youthful sexual drive, normally abundant sperm count in men and to support the health of the ova in women. It is widely used in Asia to maintain the youthful condition and color of the hair. It can calm the nervous system. 

He Shou Wu is a good source of iron and contains potent antioxidants and in antioxidant-potentiating molecules. It is an adaptogen tonic herb that supports adrenal fortitude. Its strength partially comes from its remarkable ability to support and maintain the healthful cleaning functions of the kidney and liver, which in turn clean and nourish the blood.

The zinc content of prepared He Shou Wu is as high as 42 mg per 100 grams the herb. This is several dozen times higher than that of most herbs. Animal type foods are considered to be high in zinc, but they only have 3-5 mg per 100 gram, much lower than the 42 mg in He Shou Wu. He Shou Wu is also a rich source of lecithin which is an important raw material of red blood cell and other cell membranes and a major component of nerve tissues.

The primary active constituent of He Shou Wu, known as THSG, is very similar to resveratrol and may be stronger. THSG, like resveratrol, up-regulates the Klotho gene. Dragon Herbs only uses properly “prepared” He Shou Wu from a great mountain source (Di Tao), which is wildcrafted and allowed to grow in the wild for eight years before collecting.
