Being one of the most respected herbs in Chinese medicine, Fo-Ti Root treats various ailments such as bad skin, high blood cholesterol, fatigue, and high blood pressure.
We know that high cholesterol causes high blood pressure which can lead to heart attacks and other heart diseases. A cholesterol build up is commonly known to be caused by unhealthy lifestyle factors such as smoking, a fatty/oily diet, and lack of exercise. Other factors may not be in your control, if you have an underlying condition or if it runs in your family.
The lectins in processed fo-ti may reduce the fat levels in your blood, helping to reduce the amount of plaque build up in your blood vessels. Plaque builds up over time through fatty deposits, cellular waste, calcium and fibrin. As plaque builds up in your arteries, your artery walls thicken, and become stiff. Your stiffened arteries then put strain on your heart. Due to the thickened walls and stiff arteries, your heart requires a lot more energy and power to pump blood through your veins.
Consistent strain puts you at risk of heart disease, heart failure, strokes, and hypertension.
Fo-Ti is highly recommended to help restore you back to normal health if you struggle with the following:
- High cholesterol levels
- High blood pressure
