He Shou Wu 20:1 Extract

This famous Chinese  herb used for centuries as an anti -ageing and rejuvenation tonic was said to have been discovered around 812AD by a weak sterile old man who had fallen asleep in a forest after drinking heavily that night, when he woke he noticed a long He Shou Wu vine, so he decided to dig up the roots and take them home, he began to consume them quite regularly a few months later he fathered a child for the first time and his hair slowly changed from grey back to its original black colour he was said to have fathered five children and lived well over 100 years old. These claims are bold and probably mostly myth rather than real though I will share the benefits which science has confirmed so far.
