From the period of 1667 to 1933 there lived a Chinese Master Herbalist – Lie Chen-Yuen who was also martial arts teacher who was reportedly lived to be 256 years old… that was confirmed later by officials. He had 23 wives and over 200 children, great grand children, and great great grandchildren. Lie Chen said he owed his long life to eating little or no meat… and many herbs that he was taking daily for longevity, vitality, and great health. And one of those herbs was “He Shou Wu” which has been around for many thousands of years.
He Shou Wu is a very powerful antioxidant plant that grows in Asia that helps to slow down the aging process and prevent free radicals from causing disease such as cardiovascular disease, strokes, and even cancer.
He Shou Wu has many compounds that are similar to resveratrol which is found in red wine and grape juice. It also seems to turn sexual disfunction around and provide strong erections and powerful sexual urges and increase sperm count and it works well for women too. It also cleans away toxins from the body especially from the liver and kidneys.
Many studies have been done on He Shou Wu and the end results show that it’s a great immune boosting agent, boosts libido, and also improves circulation throughout the body, plus it’s a powerful antioxidant.
He Shou Wu is rich in zinc, iron, and lots of other trace minerals and especially Superoxide Dismutase the most powerful of all antioxidants… and instead of making your nervous this great herb calms and sedates while powering up the immune system.
He Shou Wu is a wonderful adaptogen that helps with stress and also works as a great anti-inflammatory agent, thus helping with arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, especially inflammation of the liver.
He Shou Wu is a great balancing agent that brings back health and vitality to those who are aging, and it also lowers blood pressure at the same time, and it lowers cholesterol and balances blood sugar.
Animal studies with He Shou Wu show that animals feed a diet including this powerful herb lived to be much older than their counterparts not feed He Shou Wu… and clinical trials with people showed similar results. Fruit flies feed He Shou Wu lived to be much older, and animals feed the herb also had healthier looking and better functioning organs that those that were not. And individual cells have a much longer growth cycle when infused with He Shou Wu. And He Shou Wu is a good kidney tonic for deficient Jing or life energy… thus providing health and vitality.
He Shou Wu brings about three things – in China they say – Sleep Like a Dog, being able to sleep deeply any where. Sit like a tortoise, being able to sit and meditate deeply without thinking. And Walk like a pigeon, walking briskly or speed walking no matter no matter how old you are.
He Shou Wu also helps with Alzheimer’s Disease, diabetes, helps with breast and liver cancer, and is a very good regulator of cholesterol… and it has been shown to have some effect on HIV too. Chinese medicine has not been around for thousands of years with great success for nothing… you might want to try He Shou Wu.
