Fo-Ti Root is a soothing, tonic herb that has been used for centuries in China to rejuvenate the body,combat premature ageing and promote longevity. The herb is said to strengthen the liver, kidneys and reproductive systems. Traditional herbalists say it restores vitality, energy and fertility and possibly even reverses graying hair.
Country of Origin: China
Fo-Ti Root is considered an excellent tonic that has been used for centuries to produce longevity, fertility and vitality. It is also believed to rejuvenate the body, prevent premature ageing and counteract fatigue and exhaustion. The herb is also considered a key tonic for the elderly, alleviating knee pain, replenishing semen/sperm in men, countering impotence, erectile dysfunction and darkening gray hair in both sexes; in other words, all the problems associated with ageing.
As an internal astringent, Fo-Ti Root has been helpful in reducing excessive bleeding, particularly controlling menstrual flow. Externally used, its astringent properties are included in poultices to control bleeding wounds and sores.
Fo-Ti Root is considered a mild purgative that causes evacuation of the bowels, and this action helps to treat chronic constipation. It is regarded as a demulcent laxative that not only clears waste, but also soothes and softens damaged or inflamed gastrointestinal mucous membranes, which is particularly helpful for constipation in the elderly.
Fo-Ti Root is believed to reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the blood. There is apparently a component of lecithin in the root that helps to diminish arterial plaque, which thus helps to reduce hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis). The decreased arterial plaque and cholesterol are believed to reduce high blood pressure and increase blood circulation, which may lessen the risk of strokes and cardiac problems. There are also claims that Fo-Ti reduces blood sugar.
As an overall demulcent tonic, Fo-Ti Root is said to restore, nourish and strengthen the entire body, while at the same time soothing inflamed mucous membranes. It has long been thought to have a rejuvenating effect on the liver, reproductive, urinary and circulatory systems. Fo-Ti has been used to clear toxins from, as well as support, a weak liver and kidneys.
