Fo-Ti has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has a wide range of beneficial properties. It has therapeutic benefits for several medical conditions.  He Shou Wu can't be sold raw, it must be prepared with black beans or soy.  

He Shou Wu's bitterness enables it to strengthen the sinews and bones, and its astringent properties enable it to stabilize the essence [jing] and, thus, the kidneys.

Fo-ti Root, the scientific name of which is Polygonum multiflorum, goes by many different names, the most colorful of which may be He-Sho Wu, a Mandarin name meaning "he has black hair." According to Chinese legend, Fo-ti Root restores youthful vigor in older men; Lord He-Sho Wu reportedly lived to the ripe old age of 132. All Fo-ti Root is cured in a soy solution during processing.
