The Herbs in Shou Wu Formulation

He Shou Wu Root

He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) is a tonic to the kidney and liver functions, toning up the vital essence and blood, fortifying the muscles, tendons and bones, and to prevent premature aging, maintaining the youthful condition and color of the hair, strengthening sperm and ova, fortifying the back and knees and as the premier longevity herb of Chinese tonic herbalism. Prepared Polygonum multiflorum is one of the most important and widely used Chinese tonic herbs. It shares the position as the primary essence tonic of Chinese herbalism with Lycium Fruit (Goji Berry) and Prepared Rehmannia Root. 

He Shou Wu is tonic to the kidney and liver functions. It is a potent and surefire Yin essence tonic. As such it strengthens the tendons, ligaments and bones, and prevents premature aging. It reputedly has the capacity to return gray hair to its youthful color. This is one of its most popular attributes and He Shou Wu is used throughout Asia for this purpose. 

He Shou Wu is widely used in Asia by both men and women to increase fertility. It is capable of increasing sperm in men and making the ova in women more vital. It is therefore considered to be a primary fertility-enhancing herb. Many men have claimed that consuming He Shou Wu has noticeably increased their sperm production. He Shou Wu is famous for increasing the fertility of women. Traditionally this herb is said to increase essence and blood. This combination of attributes indicates that it would increase fertility in a woman, since essence and blood are the two necessary qualities required to bare a child. Both men and women attempting to have children thus take Polygonum.

Another attribute of the herb, associated with its Kidney and Liver tonic effects, is its ability to strengthen the lower back, the knees and tendons, ligaments and bones throughout the body. Thus He Shou Wu is not only useful for maintaining youthfulness but also for providing added strength to the body. It is also used to strengthen muscle. He Shou Wu is therefore very widely used by athletes and martial artists in Asia. It is a perfect essence tonic for the athletically inclined, providing strength, resilience and stamina to the body.  Alone, or properly combined with other tonic herbs, Polygonum is an ideal longevity-promoting, anti-aging tonic herb.

He Shou Wu is a very effective blood tonic. It has been used for this purpose for over two thousand years. Recent research corroborates this ability to build healthy red blood cells.

Prepared Rehmannia Root

Prepared Rehmannia Root is said to be the “Kidney’s own food.”  It is a fundamental Kidney tonic in Chinese tonic herbalism, and is considered to be a primary longevity herb. It is found in a great many common “anti-aging” formulations. It is considered rejuvenating and life lengthening. 

Prepared Rehmannia Root is a fundamental Yin Jing tonic, providing Yin directly to the Kidney. It is quick and effective. Prepared Rehmannia Root is said to benefit sexual functions in men and women and is included in almost every formula that is designed to strengthen reproductive functions, including fertility. It forms the Yin base of many men’s potency formulas.

Prepared Rehmannia Root is a major blood tonic. This is of course of special importance to women, who always need to rebuild blood.  Prepared Rehmannia Root, when combined with Dang Gui becomes an even more potent blood tonic. Dang Gui is Chinese herbalism's premier blood tonic.

Prepared Rehmannia Root is usually combined with at least one Qi tonic to improve its assimilation and effectiveness. In this formula, Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng), a major Qi tonic, is used. Eleuthero is a superb adaptogen and is also an excellent blood tonic. It quickly increases vitality as well.

Aged Citrus Peel, Red Jujube Date, Licorice Root are all Qi tonics that have the special purpose of helping to regulate Qi and improve digestion and assimilation of the main herbs in this formula. He Shou Wu and, to an even greater degree, Prepared Rehmannia are very rich, so these three herbs are included to make the He Shou Wu and Prepared Rehmannia easily digestible.
