Our bulk Chinese herbs are mostly wild harvested but some herbs are farm grown to protect their natural habitats and meet increasing market demands. The harvests of right species at proper maturity are identified by experienced professionals, cleaned, cut or sliced, and dried. In many cases, special processing methods such as soaking with rice wine, steaming, roasting are applied as mandated by traditional Chinese medicine traditions to prepare the Chinese herbs to achieve desired properties, enhance efficacy, and reduce toxicity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr. He was right! The legend of old man Mr. He tells us he used this herb to improve his vitality and turn his hair back to its original color amognst other things. Well after using these prepared dark colored potato chips I have noticed a deep restoration of my yin jing and even some grays are going away! I'm young but due to major stress I started noticing gray hairs and decided I needed to really remineralize and restore. He Shou Wu really lives up to its reputation. These He Shou Wu chips are easy to work with and arrive promptly in excelent condition! Highly reccomended to anyone over thrity for longevity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Help I ordered this product. I am pleased with this product. Hu Shou Wu. I bought from a Chinese import store in Dallas, TX. When I moved to Lubbock they did not have a Chinese community. I did not know what to do. I searched tediously for a good company that had this product. Found it at ActiveHerb. I am pleased with the prompt service, detail on shipping & quality of herb.

    Is this a powder?

    Asked by: okbruce
    Hi, Thanks for the question. No, this is not a powder. It is a root slice as shown by the picture. We also carry the extract granule form of the herb. See related product section above.
