For rejuvenation, stress relief and brain health
If you are stressed, going prematurely grey or thinning on top, having trouble conceiving, or struggling with poor memory or poor concentration, then you need He Shou Wu. It’s one of the best tonic herbs ever for your kidney organ system, in fact it’s one of my top ten Taoist tonic herbs.
He Shou Wu is powerful for building up your reserve energy, improving your capacity to heal and recover. It’s also a great anti-stress herb that helps you to feel calmer and able to cope. It can improve the health of your brain and central nervous system, your reproductive system, your bladder, your adrenal glands, your bones, joints, tendons and ligaments.
Why does it work on so many parts of the body? He Shou Wu heals and tonifies the kidney organ system, which in Taoist and Chinese medicine relates to all of the areas mentioned. If you heal and tonify the kidney organ system, any or all of those parts of the body can improve. You may improve your memory, be able to concentrate better, and feel less pain or more flexibility in your joints and bones. You might also have increased potency or fertility. He Shou Wu can give you an abundance of that reserve energy, drive and confidence.
He Shou Wu is famous for its ability to build thick and lustrous hair, and for restoring its original colour. If you have greying hair or hair starting to recede, it will slow down or sometimes completely halt further hair loss. The name ho she wu means ‘Mr Wu’s hairy back’ and comes from a thousand year old story that says the man who discovered it was weak because he was lacking in ‘jing’ or reserve energy. His hair was going grey and falling out. He couldn’t get a wife. Then he found He Shou Wu and as a result of regular use of it, all of his hair grew back and was dark in colour again, and he married had 12 children.
He Shou Wu is excellent for replenishing your reserves. If you feel you are run down, low on energy, stressed, anxious, or have any of those issues that relate to a lack of reserve energy, ho she wu is going to build that back up.
It has a pleasant taste so if you’re using it on its own you can brew it as a tea, or you can add extra to Higher Self Herbs ‘Rejuvenate’ blend if you want more of it in there. You can put it in pretty much anything you cook that has water in it like soup or stew, to make a super-soup or super-stew. If you have the extract powder you can put it in your smoothie or your juice or just take it in water. Take on a daily basis until you feel low in stress and high in energy.

What are herbal extracts? Herbal extracts are an excellent way of getting the nutrition and goodness from a herb, without the trouble of sometimes elaborate preparation. They are also a way of getting the goodness in as concentrated a form as possible.
How are herbal extracts made? The raw herbs are prepared by hot water extraction, the water is then evaporated off until all that is elf is the essential oils and active ingredients. These are then bound together in an excipient, small amounts of rice flour. This is the most pure and unadulterated way to enjoy tonic herbal extracts possible.
