He Shou Wu is something most people haven’t heard of yet, but it’s actually one of the most powerful anti-aging herbs in Chinese medicine. It is known as one of the best kidney fortifiers, but that doesn’t mean it only helps the kidneys. In Chinese medicine the kidneys are the storage of the Jing energy.
If the Jing is strong, you’ll become stronger in everything you do. It works the other way around too, so if your Jing is depleted from stress or other factors and you run out of it – you die.
I like to think of it not as an actual physical substance but a metaphor for what’s going on in the body. It has to do with the bone marrow. It has to do with the adrenals. It has to do with the hormones. It has to do with the DNA. It has to do with the blood. It’s not any one of those things, but part of the action of them all.
Megadosing He Shou Wu?
You might want to megadose on He Shou Wu if you’d like to truly be deeply restored. He Shou Wu is very specific in this manner since it doesn’t have LD50, which is the median lethal dose. It’s a measurement of toxicity for medicines that represents the dose required to kill fifty percent of animal test subjects. He Shou Wu doesn’t have LD50. This means that it’s extremely safe to use.
Our recommended standard dosage for he shou wu is 1/2 to 1 teaspoon twice per day. That is enough for most people, but some might want to megadose for more benefits. This doesn’t have to be your standard daily dose, but try it out and see how you feel. Just mix a big dose into water or and down it, or take it with coffee, smoothies or anything else you might want.
In the video here I did about 3 tablespoons which is a large amount. Recently, I’ve been taking about one tablespoon each day as part of an experiment and I feel great.
For best results with he shou wu, you’ll want to take it regularly, whether with smaller doses or some larger ones.
Another popular benefit He Shou Wu is famous for, is the role it plays in restoring natural hair color. If you’re looking for that you might give a megadose a try.
As a performing strongman he once pulled an 8,800 lb. firetruck by his hair, juggled a kettlebell that was lit on fire, supported half a ton on top of himself in a wrestler’s bridge position, and routinely bends horseshoes and rips decks of cards in half.
