Dragon Herbs He Shou Wu dietary supplement contains Prepared Polygonum multiflorum (He shou wu, Fo-ti) root extract. Pharmacological studies have shown that prepared Ho Shou Wu root extract can prolong the life cycle of somatic cells. Laboratory studies have shown that He Shou Wu can promote strong development and prolonged growing cycle in mammalian cells compared to cells in the control group, which demonstrated aging and degeneration.

Dragon Herbs He Shou Wu from prepared He Shou Wu extract, increases the cellular antioxidant activity. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a class of closely related enzymes produced within the human body. Of all the antioxidants produced in the human body, SOD is king. SOD proteins are present in almost all aerobic cells and in almost all extracellular fluids. Mitochondrial SOD is thought to be the most biologically important since it appears to be the most active and protective, especially protecting our DNA from free radical damage that can lead to mutations that in turn can result in deadly diseases. It has been demonstrated that mice lacking the gene that produces Mitochondrial SOD die soon after birth. SOD protects our cells from DNA damage, lipid peroxidation, ionizing radiation damage, and many forms of progressive cell degradation. Stilbene glycosides in He Shou Wu provides powerful protection for the cells, against the free radicals that cause aging and cellular degeneration.

One particular stilbene glycoside present in He Shou Wu, called heshouwu super-glycoside has been proven to have exceptionally potent free radical scavenging, hydroxyl radical scavenging and superoxide anion scavenging actions. Heshouwu super-glycoside is especially potent at reducing lipid peroxide formation in liver, heart and brain (a very good thing). In addition, Dragon Herbs He Shou Wu may also lower blood fat and cholesterol by reducing the free fatty acid level in blood serum, and improves blood flow. It also has an antibacterial effect and promotes healthier active memory responce.

All studies emphasize the continuous consumption of He Shou Wu in order to see the results. All of these tests prove that He Shou Wu and He Shou Wu-containing formulas, if consumed on a long term basis can significantly increase the organism's own innate ability to eliminate free radicals, resist oxidation, and suppress lipid peroxidation occurs that during the aging process.

Dragon Herbs He Shou Wu products are always made from PREPARED He Shou Wu. While some other nutritional supplement companies and marketers in America are unaware of this distinction between prepared and un-prepared He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum). Raw He Shou Wu is of course less expensive, and that is often the driving force behind the way many herb companies make their purchasing decisions. As a result, He Shou Wu is sometimes blamed for the unwanted side effect of loose stool that results from the use of the incorrect herb (raw He Shou Wu). Again, Dragon Herbs is very well aware of this issue and therefore uses only PREPARED He Shou Wu to make its tonic products.
