Known as the herb of intuition and longevity, He Shou Wu is thought to work by supporting DNA protection and repair and stimulating some of the most powerful longevity promoting hormones and substances including the super antioxidant, Superoxide Dismutase. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is classified as a Shen and Yin tonic, a herb that makes us "receptive to spirit". He Shou Wu, when used correctly, has the potential to support our intuitive abilities and open our awareness to our deeper spiritual nature. It has also demonstrated neuroprotective effects and may improve mental acuity and recall.

Research has found that of all herbs, He Shou Wu is one of the greatest inhibitors of MAO (monamine oxidase) activity. Which in turn allows for a greater amount of dopamine and other feel good neurotransmitters to be available in our system.

Traditionally, He Shou Wu is used to replenish Jing, the "root of our vitality" by providing deep nourishment. This herb concentrates tremendous amounts of Chi and nutritional components into its dense root system. When these roots are consumed, these life-giving nutrients are transferred, helping to both cleanse and nourish the bloodstream and related organs.

Although it is an overall energiser to the body, He Shou Wu is slightly sedative in nature and calming to the nerves.
