You can use He Shou Wu as a great addition to your smoothies, elixirs, hot chocolates, soup broths, raw desserts, baked goods, or simply sprinkled over your favourite ice cream, yoghurt or cereal. The possibilities are endless! This extract is not heat sensitive.

Can I combine this with other mushrooms and herbs?

Yes, absolutely! In fact, we recommend it. Combining these tonic herbs together will actually enhance their efficacy, not reduce it.

Is this raw or prepared?

We only use prepared He Shou Wu. Raw He Shou Wu is not a tonic. It is high in emodin compounds which have a strong laxative effect, thus, raw He Shou Wu is used in other conditions.

Prepared He Shou Wu refers to the traditional method of cooking the raw roots in a black bean stew. This process makes the herb easier to digest and brings out more of tonifying qualities. This is how Taoist herbalists and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners have consumed the herb for centuries.

How is it extracted at 10:1?

Teelixir He Shou Wu is extracted using water only at a 10:1 potency. This means ten kilograms of He Shou Wu root is used to produce one kilogram of this extract.

Where is it sourced?

Teelixir He Shou Wu organically (semi-wild) cultivated, with respect to, and abiding by the fundamental concept of "Di Tao” sourcing in Chinese herbalism. Di Tao means “Earth Tao” or in Chinese, “authentic source.” Teelixir He Shou Wu root comes directly from its original growing source, the pristine high mountain ranges of China, far from any cities or industrial pollution.

What is "semi-wild” cultivation?

"Semi-wild" herbs are grown from seed in a protected natural environment (a mountain forest or desert, for example) where it is allowed to grow naturally, without human interference. The semi-wild cultivation process simulates the growing conditions of the wild herb where it can accumulate food and energy naturally.

When can I expect to see results?

Everyone is different depending on the level of health they are experiencing. In some cases, the benefits of our products may be felt instantaneous while others may experience subtle influences at first and notice cumulative effects developing over time. For great results, we recommend consuming one or more of our products regularly for at least 30-100 days.

Will this reverse grey hair and hair loss?

Prolonged use of this herb is said to turn one’s grey hair back to its original colour. This is He Shou Wu’s most famous attribute and is widely used in China today for this reason. It is known to help the hair grow fuller and more illustrious. There was one study of men taking a He Shou Wu tincture which saw that 32 of the 36 subjects had positive results. However, this seems to be the only study.

The best answer is that this is likely to work for some people but not everyone. If this is your goal, for best results, we would recommend consuming He Shou Wu in higher doses for a longer period of time along with other dietary and lifestyle changes.

Is there any side effects?

Prepared He Shou Wu is extremely gentle and safe to consume. However, it must be prepared correctly in order to possess its tonic properties. Raw, unprocessed He Shou Wu is a strong laxative and should not be consumed regularly. Raw He Shou Wu may be liver toxic in some individuals, contrary to prepared He Shou Wu which has shown to be liver-protective.

Some individuals may experience soft stools and mild gastrointestinal disturbances. However, this is rare with moderate doses of prepared He Shou Wu. If you experience this, we would recommend lowering your dose.
