Ho Shou Wu

Latin Name: Polygunum multiflorum

Family: Polygonaceae


Ho shou wu, or as it is called in the West, fo-ti, is an ancient Chinese herb used for its incredibly mysterious properties. It is said to restore hair colour when a 50 year old root is used and cause the growth of new teeth in the elderly when 150 year old roots are used. Better yet, it is said that when taking 300 year old roots it gives off earthly immortality.
