Fo-ti is a Traditional Chinese Medicinal herb touted to improve youthfulness and longevity, nourish the heart, calm the soul, and was given its traditional name, 'He Shou Wu', roughly translates into "Mr. He's Black Hair", named after an elderly Chinese man who restored his youth, hair, and sexual potency by taking a combination of Fo-ti with several other tonic herbs. Fo-ti is traditionally cured with black bean sauce and wine.
Full spectrum extract of Fo-ti root, specified for a 10% tetrahydroxystilbene content.
Recommended amount per dose is 250-500 mg, or 1/2 to a full size '00' capsule.
Fo-ti root is a beneficial ally for nourishment and vitality, it has a mild estrogenic effect which helps balance testoterone levels and keep one feeling and looking young. Fo-ti has strong MAO-B (Monoamine oxidase B) inhibiting properties. MAO-B is what inactivates Dopamine, a vital neurotransmitter related to memory, focus, and learning. Youthfulness and low MAO-B levels have been linked and it is believed that by keeping MAO-B levels low, while keeping dopamine levels high, one can preserve their youth and vigor. Is it any wonder, that the Chinese have regarded Fo-ti as the fountain of youth?
