What does it do?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, He Shou Wu, in its processed form, nourishes the liver and kidney which is the source for Blood and Essence, respectively. The Liver Blood nourishes the head, scalp, and hair. The Kidney essence nourishes the bone marrow and bones, replenishes semen, and controls the aging process. He Shou Wu may support hair growth, support hair original color, and support bones and muscles associated with aging.

In addition to He Shou Wu, Shou Wu Pian (Wan) contains a blend of 12 additional herbs. This formulation is used to further enhance the action of He Shou Wu because He Shou Wu as a single herb often does not produce the optimal results. The same formula has been used by the noble class in China for vitality and longevity.

Please note that our tablets may appear neutral in finishing and a little brittle. You may observe a tiny bit of fine powder at the bottom of your bottle and occasionally one or a couple of broken tablets after transportation. This is because unlike other manufacturers, our tablets are not coated as part of our effort to minimize the use of excipients and to make them as pure as possible. These tablets can also be easily dissolved in hot water to serve as tea.
