Shen Min helps you stop suffering from thinning, lifeless hair that continues to develop a growing hair loss cycle. You've got a natural, scientific advantage with Shen Min.
He Shou Wu (also called Fo-Ti) is commonly used in China, and has been for many centuries. Originally, it was used to turn aged, greying hair back to it's youthful darker color.

Combined with the abilities of modern science, He Shou Wu has been blended into the proprietary formula available as Shen Min.
He Shou Wu is a vine plant; vigorous specimen with a very cunning growth ability. New plants should be grown in pots until their second spring when they can be transplanted into a shady bed with a trellis. Can be grown in sun or shade, but Fo-ti will not tolerate high heat very well at all. This woody perennial can grow to six feet.
Standard Uses: This vine plant is a good ornamental selection for gardens needing a lush green vine to cover a trellis. Their ability to grow in a shady location is a plus, but their inability to withstand high heat does limit their use in warmer regions.
Medicinal Uses: Fo-ti is said to have a root that grows as big as a football at times. It's reputation as a tonic has been touted as a substance to produce longevity, fertility and vitality. Today, many use it as an effective tool against high blood pressure and hardening of the veins and arteries. The component of Lecithin which is contained in Fo-ti helps to reduce arterial plaque and blood pressure. It has also been used for years as a folk remedy for darkening pre-mature gray hair.
"In the past, I've been very skeptical about the numerous hair restoration products such as minoxidil and rogaine. I've used minoxidil for two years and the product seemed to have stopped working with my hair falling out again. Thanks to Shen Min, my hair has grown to the point were I no longer have a receeding hair line. I'm now more confident and sociable when it comes to meeting people."
