The Fo-Ti plant is native to China, Japan and Taiwan. This perennial vine can grow anywhere from six to thirty feet in length. However, the Root of the Fo-Ti plant is where it may possibly gain its natural abilities. Known in the Orient as the 'Elixir of Life', this famous root is China's most renowned herb for longevity. The Chinese common name for the Fo-Ti Root is Ho Shou Wu, named after the man that discovered the amazing benefits of this plant during the Tang Dynasty.
Legend has it that at 58 years old, Ho Shou Wu could not conceive a child. After being advised to take Fo-Ti Root for his problem, he fathered many children and amazingly his hair turned from gray to black while his body amazingly looked years younger. This legendary man supposedly lived to be 160 years old with his children living to 130 years old. Their long lives were attributed to the magical Fo-Ti Root. When he died Ho Shou Wu still had his youthful black hair and Ho Shou Wu translated from Chinese actually means Mr. Ho Black Hair. Fo-Ti root remains one of the most highly praised herbs in Chinese medicine used to possibly support the aging process.
