Fo-ti root has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to support liver and kidney health, fight various effects of aging, and “nourish the heart and calm the spirit.”  Many of fo-ti’s benefits are due to its supply of antioxidants and beneficial compounds, including anthraquinones, emodin and chrysophanic acids.

When it comes to improving your health, what is fo-ti root good for? In Chinese medicine, it is said to be a natural liver and kidney “youth-giving tonic,” meaning it’s taken to improve general well-being and for its invigorating properties. Fo-ti benefits include its ability to help treat numerous health conditions, such as tuberculosis, cancer, prostatitis, high cholesterol, insomnia, skin ailments, constipation, atherosclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases, and joint pain or soreness.


It is also used to fight signs of aging, including hair loss and graying of the hair, as well as to improve skin’s appearance by treating conditions like acne, eczema and dermatitis. 

Fo-ti (Fallopia multiflora or Polygonum multiflorum) is a Chinese herbal medicine that’s derived from a plant that primarily grows in China, Japan, Tibet and Taiwan.
