Fo-Ti is legendary for fighting conditions of premature aging and is popular among natural healers for treating insomnia.
Fo-Ti, officially listed in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, is revered in Chinese Traditional Medicine.

The Chinese have long considered Fo-Ti an anti-aging agent, motivating modern scientists to investigate its potential role in human longevity.
