The Legend of He Shou Wu
Long ago, old Mr. He became lost in the forest. Years later, those who found him were astonished. The old man’s hair had turned from white to black. In order to sustain himself, he lived on the root of the common wild vine: Polygoni Multiflori. Today, this herb bears his name HE SHOU WU (Old Mr. He). In the West, this root is known as HE SHOU WU or FoTi.
