Fo-ti or Polygonum Multiflorum — A Great Adaptogenic Herb for Long Life

Fo-Ti is a climbing plant that grows in the mountains of Asia and China. These plants can be 200 to 300 year old and are called “Mountain Father” and “Mountain Spirit” and bring the power of youth to those taking the herb.

Fo-Ti is known for revitalizing muscles and fortifying bones and tendons… plus it also lowers cholesterol and helps with prostate inflammation, and Fo-Ti is a great anti-inflammatory agent helping with arthritis and joint pain.

Fo-Ti stimulates brain cells, nerves, and the adrenal glands thus helping to balance the endocrine system and detox the body.

Fo-Ti helps with chronic fatigue, atherosclerosis, lowers blood pressure, and works wonders for enlarged inflamed lymph nodes. Fo-Ti contains lectins that lower blood fat levels and work to prevent heart disease and blocked arteries. (In animal studies Fo-Ti prevents clot formation in small vessels thus preventing heart attacks.) 

It also prevents the deposit of fat in the liver and prevents liver toxicity, and Fo-Ti is one of the few herbs that will increase red blood cell production.

Fo-Ti stimulates libido, revitalizing sexual energy and athletic prowess, and also helps with erectile dysfunction and impotence.

Fo-Ti is a wonderful immune boosting agent thus helping to fight off disease. Fo-Ti contains emodin which is great for autoimmune disease and also preventing transplant rejection.

As we age Superoxide Dismutase levels go down and allow cellular damage to occur, but when taking Fo-Ti Superoxide Dismutase levels stay strong thus prevent the effects of aging. I find it interesting that the Fo-Ti plant climbs, coils, and spirals similar to the DNA molecule.

Plus Fo-Ti contains lots of zinc that’s important for DNA repair, semen longevity, fertility, reducing inflammation, and for preventing prostate problems. Plus Fo-Ti contains more iron than Goji Berries thus supporting red blood cell production.

Fo-Ti also relaxes, sedates, and heal the ravages of stress – making it a good adaptogenic herb, Fo-Ti and Ginseng are said to be the herbs of immortality.

You can buy Fo-Ti on-line or order it at your local health food store.
