This formula is a masterful blend of the great tonic herb He shou wu (Fo-ti) and the tart Chinese cherry fruit, Cornus.
There is a long tradition in the practice of herbal alchemy of making combinations of two herbs that complement each other in a way that reinforces the function of each in a balanced and harmonious way.
Shou Wu 88 continues this time tested tradition. The synergy of this pairing creates a simple but powerful anti-aging formula that not only replenishes and nourishes the Kidney adrenal complex (Jing/Essence) but also guides and locks the energy of the formula from "leaking" out of the targeted organ systems.
He Shou Wu, (also known as Fo-ti or Polygonum multiflorum) is one the premier Superior class tonic herbs.
It is a longevity and Yin Essence replenishing herb of the highest order. Legend has it that it can return an aging person to his or her youthful years.
It builds essence, builds blood, and enhances reproductive energy for men and women alike.
It is also used in formulas for supporting hair growth.
He Shou Wu has been prized for centuries because of its ability to prevent premature aging and enhance longevity and youthfulness.
According to Chinese theory, He Shou Wu restores and nourishes the primal energy of the body known as "Jing" or "Essence." By nourishing that root energy the skeletal system, the muscular system, and the nervous system are tonified and energized.
He Shou Wu has also been shown to increase the body's level of SOD (superoxide dismutase), a critical antioxidant that the body produces to fight free radical damage.
SOD helps the body maintain proper cellular function and replication with protection against DNA damage.
He Shou Wu is very rich in the mineral Zinc, which supports a healthy immune system and iron, which supports healthy blood building.
