The Legend of He Shou Wu – “Black-haired Mr. He “
Neng Si is the name of the man who is said to have discovered He Shou Wu in China.
“Neng Si was born with a weak constitution. Due to his chronic frailty, he had never been able to marry and as time went by he had given up on the prospect of either marrying or bearing children. In addition, he had taken to heavy drinking. Nevertheless, he was an enthusiastic follower of Taoism and often shadowed his Taoist teacher in the mountain.
“One day, at the age of 58, he fell into a drunken stupor in the forest. When he awoke, he observed a pair of vines intertwined for more than 3 yards. He thought to himself that they appeared to be making love, and in a whimsical mood he dug up the root of the plant, which he took back to his cottage. No one in the local village recognized the herb. A hermit from the mountain saw it, however, and told him, “This climbing plant struck you as peculiar, now surely it is supposed to serve you as a divine tonic. Why don’t you take it?”
“He agreed and ground up the root into powder and swallowed a small amount on an empty stomach. In seven days, he started to “realize the Tao of Muman.” He started to feel an unknown vitality flowing through his veins and after a little while he noticed certain urges starting to develop. Soon this previously hapless guy began to experience something very unfamiliar to him – incredible virility – he could barely control his sexual desire. Over the next several months, he became strong. He decided to continue taking the herb, doubling his dosage. In several years, his hair grew dark again, and his appearance became youthful. Over the next ten years, he fathered several boys and changed his name to Neng Si, meaning “Capable of Bearing Offspring.”
