Fo Ti Tien

We would like to specify exactly which plant we are referring to, for in the West, there seems to be some confusion about this plant. In China the name Fo Ti Tien refers to a different plant than this one, namely: Hydrocotyle Asiatica minor. This plant is also available in Western countries, where, strangely enough, it is also called Fo Ti Tien; somewhere in the past there must have been a Western herbalist who confused the two, leaving us with the mess. The plant that we are referring to here, Polygonum Multiflorum, is called ’He Shou Wu’ in China (are you still with us?). Luckily enough, this mix up is not such a big deal, because the properties of the Hydrocotyle Asiatica minor and the Polygonum Multiflorum are almost equal.

Scientific name

Polygonum Multiflorum.



Native to



It is a nerve tonic, a relaxant and a memory enhancer. Moreover it is a tonic for the liver, kidneys and blood (prevents blood clots and lowers blood pressure) and it strengthens the blood vessels. It is considered a rejuvenating tonic that increases fertility and sexual potency and improves the metabolism. Animals studies showed that it counteracts tumor growth. These effects only apply to long-term regular use of this product.


Cut and dried herb has to be boiled for 10 minutes to make a tea.


1 teaspoon per cup of tea, daily.
