Fo-Ti (Polygonum multiflorum) is a plant that is native to China and has been a staple in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for years. According to TCM, processed Fo-Ti is a widely used tonic for strengthening the blood, invigorating the liver and kidneys, supplementing vital energy (qi), increasing vigor, promoting fertility, and enhancing longevity. Fo-Ti is also used in other TCM formulas to combat prematurely graying hair, low energy, lower back pain, angina pectoris, and more. It is also featured in some Western products to help prevent thinning hair and restore dry, brittle and damaged hair.
Modern research indicates that Fo-Ti contains an alkaloid that has rejuvenating effects on the nerves, brain cells and endocrine glands. Fo-Ti stimulates a portion of the adrenal gland and helps to detoxify the body. The whole root has been shown to lower cholesterol levels, according to animal and human research, as well as to decrease hardening of the arteries, or atherosclerosis. Other Fo-Ti research has investigated this herb's role in strong immune function, red blood cell formation and antibacterial action.
