Swanson Premium Fo-Ti Reviews

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Fo-Ti is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grows hair in a wrong place It's probably a very good product but not for me. I noticed growing a beard, immediately stopped taking Fo-Ti and beard disappeared. The beard would be OK for a man, but I'm a woman and really don't want any facial hair. Since I was taking it only for a short while, there was no noticeable hair color change on my head. Be careful with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a miracle worker This supplement is not a miracle worker like some claims make, but it is effective. You need more of it to see results. I take 4-6 caps a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to be working I only bought this because I wanted to see if it would help restore my hair color, or get rid of some of the gray naturally. After doing a lot of research I found this herb has a lot more benefits than I realized. I plan to use this long term, so it may be too soon to give an adequate view. Swanson's offers an excellent price compared to most other places. So I'll continue to use and give an update in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dissappointed, will not buy again I purchased this a little over 13 months ago because the price was amazing, but wanted to finish up other supplements, so did not start taking it until about 7 months ago. I would have asked for a refund but I am past the one year point. Unfortunately, I did not have the positive effects that others report. I felt no difference in energy level and the main reason I purchased it, for my hair. There was no change in the color, condition or thickness even when I started taking 3 a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get rid of grey hair I started taking this to turn my grey hair back to brown and it has worked. I also use Royal Jeyy, which turns the grey hair into a copper color. But Fo-Ti turns the copper back to my natural brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fo-Ti Wow, what a difference in my hair. I take them with my vitamins. I mix a capsule with water to make a paste, I spread it on my hair line. I let it dry and rinse it off in the shower. My hair is in excellent condition now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality at a Low Price I have taken Fo-Ti regularly for years and before I tried this product, I always paid more than I needed to. This is excellent quality Fo-Ti at an unbeatable price. Fo-Ti does so much for my stamina, appearance and health. I am so pleased to be able to get it at such an affordable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems good to me Its hard sometimes to actually tell if a product is working ,just because its working doesnt mean you'll feel some majic spell working. No bad effects / and no good BUT that doesnt mean its not doing its job.I'll trust the product and wait and see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin seems softer Since taking this, my skin feels a lot softer! Give it a couple weeks. I take 1 capsule per day in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very effective product It gives me a lot of energy and i don't feel tired after sleep late. not sure it will make my hair turn black again yet, i will update later. I don't need to make Chinese herb soup for my youth now. The best quality should be dark red color. I hope Swanson improve later. Do not eat carrot after you take this herb, it will reduce the effectiveness. Fo Ti is evaluable as ginseng in China.
