Ho Shou Wu is Polygonum multiflorum. This is the premier longevity-rejuvenation-anti-aging herb in Chinese medicine. It affects the kidney, blood, bones, endocrine system, fertility, and virility – you can quadruple the sperm count of a man in a month. It makes your hair and fingernails grow thick and fast, and can reverse gray hair. It’s an amazing herb. I had an experience with a mid-to-Iate-thirties customer who, for whatever reason, maybe because she was working a lot, had run-down adrenal glands. So we just started her on one herb, Ho Shou Wu, which is $22 for a bottle, and put her on a decent dose. In a week she told me that her goiter had gone away.
When our body is deficient in chromium, it takes twice as long for insulin to remove glucose from the blood. This slows down the whole sugar glucose process, causing the whole body to become more reactive to every other thing that is happening within it. Chromium enhances insulin performance and glucose utilization. It also helps to carry proteins in the body. There are many things that deplete the body of chromium. Refined sugar causes the body to deplete the chromium levels within it. Also the refining of starches and carbohydrates robs the food of its chromium. As we get older, our bodies are unable to store as much chromium as we could when we were younger.
