I recommend fo ti to those who have thin hair. But you should not rely on this herb to stop your hair loss. You are better able to see the benefits of fo ti, once you have gotten your shed under control. This herb should help to thicken your existing hair:

Dragon Herbs
Paradise Herbs
Shen Min

Thanks. Shedding is stable now and I do have thin hair. My goal is to thicken up my remaining hair and perhaps grow a few more strands.

So the NOW and Nature's Way brands of Fo-Ti are as good as useless because they don't contain the root extract?

goten: the Now Foods brand says it's Fo-Ti powder (Polygonum multiflorum) (root). Have no idea how they process it. I've been taking it for just over a month; it's probably way too early to look for results. I'm going to continue for several more months. Seems to be helping my arthritic knees, so that's a positive. . .

I contacted Nature's Way and NOW abotu their Fo-Ti product. NOW says this:

Our Fo-Ti powder is obtained from naturally dried, non-cured Polygonum multiflorum tubers. We have no call for extracts at this time but hear you for future consideration.

Thank you.

And now we get an understanding as to why some fo ti products are (much) less expensive than others, considering the leaf v. root; powder v. powdered extract.

This notwithstanding, the reviews for the NOW fo ti product are impressive and genuine, in my opinion.

I have found no better supplement for the knees, than fo ti.

Reply from Nature's Way:

Nature's Ways Fo-ti is aired dried, ground into a powder and put in the capsule. We use the root of the plant and not an extract.

As for energy and stamina, Paradise Herbs' Fo Ti is the best that I have tried thus far. It has been better than Shen Min's, Dragon Herbs', and Nature's Way's.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided not to take the fo ti supplement everyday (because my knee pain had gone; and my cardio workouts had become much easier), but then noticed that my stamina levels dropped dramatically.

I was gasping for air, and could barely finish my run. So I restarted the fo ti (one capsule a day), and my stamina levels increased again.

www.jingherbs.com has some good quality herbs including a prepared he shou wu powder I've been taking. I can't tell you whether it helps with hair (only taken about a month), but it may be a good option for those looking for a higher quality product. I also suggest their astragalus powder. They have a hair forumula as well but I am using another herbal hair formula so I haven't tried it.

A tad dramatic, don't you think...the chances of a man developing gynecomastia from fo ti are small.

May be I am prone to this - but I am very careful in this department - I know once you get Gyno, it is a bitch to lose it...and this is from guys (body builders) who are not afraid to try any chemicals !!!

So I have no real eveidence as I stayed away from it - my only suggestion would be to keep a close eye on gyno if continuing with Fo Ti...

Any of the original posters in this thread want to give an update ? I bought some fo ti for thinning hair (not the dragon herb version) and I have loss around my temples. Thanks.

Fo-ti is great for the adrenals, kidneys and memory in my experience. Usually though once a day is good enough, but you need to be taking something to keep your body from building up that estrogen or you will get gyno. Curcumin and Resveratrol and/orAlpha Lipoic Acid are helpful in this regard.

I really wanted to use FO ti because it looks very promising but everytime I tried I had headaches and palpitations. Quit due to side effects.

and regarding the "prepared" foti: once soybeans are added you dont know what is really helping, foti, soybeans or maybe both.
