What exactly goes into the He Shou Wu Plus formula? Each completely addition is chosen by the Primal Herb research team for its proven effectiveness, safety, research, and historical use.* Read on for why each herb and fungi has been chosen.

Traditionally Prepared

Our He Shou Wu ( fo ti / ho shou wu) is Traditionally “Prepared” It starts with mature organic roots to ensure potency and effectiveness. The roots are sliced, stewed with black beans, dried and extracted to bring you one of the finest energy tonic herbs available!*

When it comes to protecting health, many could say that nothing can stand in the way of he shou wu—a stunning Asian herb with an impressive list of benefits.

Among these include antioxidant activity, stimulated hair growth, improved immunity, enhanced heart health, and all manner of healthy protection of all organs and systems. Also known as fo-ti, this herb is an enormous ally to have while facing one’s older, golden years.

Cracked Reishi Shell Spores

We bring cracked reishi shell spores into our he shou wu formula, which help support our main herb’s immune-boosting, age-supporting, antioxidant properties—and much more.

A gorgeous woodland mushroom, reishi is renowned even in ancient times for protecting health against weakness, degeneration, and disease. Research proves this to be so, too.

Siberian Eleuthero

Siberian eleuthero adds a pinch of energy-boosting to the mix, both for physical stamina and mental function—a great addition to he shou wu’s age-supporting benefits.

With similar effects to classic ginseng, this plant has been used to enhance energy and vitality for centuries. Now, you can experience both he shou wu and Siberian eleuthero together!

Goji Berry

Besides their excellent flavors bursting with tartness and sweetness, goji berries have many health benefits making them an irresistible addition and companion to he shou wu.

They’re chock-full of antioxidants but have also been shown to help promote hair growth naturally—one of our proudest features of He Shou Wu Plus.

Review of Supporting Research

He Shou Wu Plus also includes piperine, the active alkaloid chemical found in the rinds of black pepper fruits (or corns). This compound immediately increases the bioavailability of all other powerful plant compounds added to this blend – so you can really feel the difference!*

No Fillers, No Dying Agents, No Additives, Just 100% Pure Extracts.

Vegan Friendly!


  • Add to hot water, coffee, tea, or smoothie.
  • He Shou Wu Plus can be taken day or night – with or without food, so enjoy!
  • Recommended once daily, but most importantly listen to the body (if it requires more, less or none).

An Amazing Antioxidant

If there’s anything that could slow the onset of aging, it would be antioxidants!* Of these, He Shou Wu has plenty.

Studies of the plant’s root reveal that it is full of phenolic compounds and flavonoids: antioxidant phytochemicals that naturally shield the body against free radical damage.*

Free radical damage is central to the most noticeable signs of aging! Antioxidants found at the root of He Shou Wu are certainly not granters of immortality, nor can they literally stop aging.

However, getting plenty of antioxidants from this herb may help you age with more bountiful health than ever before.*

Does He Shou Wu Restore Hair?

Where could the stories of turning gray hair back to a youthful, vibrant color originate?

While solid evidence that it reduces graying is yet to be found, there is much stronger evidence that it may indeed both strengthen and reinvigorate hair growth.*

In one test, topical application of He Shou Wu to animal subjects did indeed visibly speed hair growth.

This may be especially helpful to both men and women with balding or hair thinning, common health frustrations that come with aging.

He Shou Wu Liver Protector

Beyond its reputation for anti-aging properties, He Shou Wu is also used for liver support. It is used in this fashion in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) today.

It was also known for aiding the kidneys and lymphatic system to aid with detoxifying and processing the body’s waste.*

In recent animal studies, use of He Shou Wu was found to reduce the number of fatty deposits that made it to the liver. This may help lower cholesterol, a health issue that gets more common the more you age.*

Not coincidentally, aiding natural liver detoxification does help keep the body fit, running smoothly, and aging gracefully!*

A Cholesterol Regulator

Science shows that this Chinese herb of old reduces fatty liver, but may also help to reduce the buildup of fats and plaque straight in the bloodstream, too.*

In other words: it’s an excellent natural cholesterol-lowering supplement!*

As we age, we may start to struggle with issues of keeping a balanced diet, even though this should be your foundation. Regardless, higher levels of cholesterol are a common consequence – but it may not be so likely with the regular use of He Shou Wu.*

In fact, studies have shown almost dramatic cholesterol-lowering with aid of the herb, making it a aid of atherosclerosis and heart disease: health risks that do increase with age.*

A Digestive Stimulator

Extracts of this plant’s root also reveal the presence of anthraquinones. These plant constituents are well-known to support digestive regularity in those who take it in moderate amounts.*

More particularly, however, anthraquinones are known to be digestive stimulants, especially helpful with issues of sluggishness and constipation – admittedly a much more common digestive disturbance you’ll encounter with older age!*

A Brain Support

As we grow older, troubles with cognition, focus, and memory become more and more likely. Amazingly, He Shou Wu may have the ability to brighten up this corner of wellness, too.*

In a modern study, subjects performed better in tests relating to memory and learning when they took these plant extracts, compared to those who didn’t.*

Such results confirm it may help with another one of its many ancient uses: improving concentration, mental clarity, strength, and mental fatigue.*

Yet another natural ally you’ll want on your side to preserve that energy of youth!

Cracked Shell Reishi Spores

Prepared He shou wu already has a robust reputation for boosting immunity. But to push our formula’s effects to the max, we included reishi mushroom as an invaluable part of the formula—a powerful mushroom with astounding evidence and studies for supporting the immune system.

But, much like He Shou Wu, reishi is capable of a whole lot more than that.

Our decision to add reishi is also owed to many other healing properties it has in common with our star herb, and which are thoroughly vouched for by both historical use and science. These include antioxidant activity, neuroprotection, heart health supportliver protectionkidney protection, and much more.

With reishi’s help, you’ll be sure to experience the fullest potential of each of these benefits!

Siberian Eleuthero

The health benefit themes we highlight in He Shou Wu Plus are graceful aging, vibrant health, and stronger resilience against all sorts of weakness and disease.

Naturally, as we age, we miss all the benefits of youthful energy.

For this reason, we add Siberian eleuthero (also known as Siberian ginseng), the king of herbs when it comes to restoring energy, enhancing physical stamina, and boosting mental focus.

The result: alongside he shou wu’s age-enhancing qualities, you’ll get renewed spirit, vitality, and energy with the help of Siberian eleuthero. This herb, hailing from Asia and Russia, is also known for neuroprotection, metabolism support, antioxidant activity, and immune support, too.

Goji Berry (aka. Wolf Berry)

Nothing screams “antioxidants” louder than the goji berry! Because this deliciously dainty fruit, native to China, is so full of these phytonutrients, goji stands as an obvious choice and companion to he shou wu in our formula.

Antioxidants are known to scavenge free radicals, which in turn help slow aging.

And yet people may not realize that goji berries are capable of so much more—and so much that can help enhance and support our main he shou wu ingredient: including boosting hair growth, fighting inflammation, supporting heart health, enhancing a healthy metabolism and weight, plus liver, kidney, and immune protection, too.
