Our skeleton is of primordial importance to our health. First, it
provides a framework for our entire body. Secondly, it is a living tissue that
plays key roles in our immune system, blood production and aging process. It is
involved in our cardiovascular and metabolic functions because it is a mineral
reservoir. It houses the bone marrow that maintains a lifetime supply of
progenitor cells. It houses our brain, spinal cord and central endocrine glands. It holds our teeth and eyes
in place. The skeleton is both firm and flexible, as the bones form a strong
structure and as the joints move flexibly within limits that allow us to live
and perform freely and with joy upon this earth. The Chinese, from the very
beginning of their development as a civilization, recognized the deep
importance of the skeleton. Early on they discovered herbs that provided
support for the various tissues of the skeleton. Dragon Herbs Strong Bones is a combination of the
herbs used for centuries in Asia to provide support to the bones and related
tissues and functions.
Eucommia Bark was the second herb
ever described in a written text on herbs in China, playing second fiddle only
to Ginseng, “the King of Herbs.” Shen Nong, the great founder of Chinese herbalism,
described Eucommia bark as “a superior herb
that can prolong life.” A “superior herb,” by Shen Nong’s definition, is
an herb that may be consumed daily for the purpose of promoting health and well
being without side effects. Eucommia Bark has
remained a virtual icon of tonic herbalism in Asia for thousands of years. It has been consumed by
billions of people, and is consumed by millions of people today as a superior,
Eucommia Bark is traditionally used to tonify
the Kidney, Liver and Heart functions, as described in Chinese health theory.
It has a warm energy and is considered to be very strengthening, but it is not
a “stimulant.” In fact, Eucommia Bark helps
to calm the nerves while strengthening the core of the body.
Eucommia Bark is the primary plant-sourced herb in Chinese herbalism used to tonify the
Kidney Yang functions. Kidney Yang functions include
such issues as our inner power, sexual vitality, structural integrity and mental
creativity. Eucommia is a superb Yang Jing tonic
because it is simultaneously powerful and gentle. Its safety has been well
established over many centuries. There has been no challenge to its safety in
either historical or modern literature. It may be used continuously without
causing over-excitation or imbalance of any sort. According to Chinese health
theory, the Jing stored in the Kidneys is a determining factor in our potential
longevity. Abundant Jing is
essential to longevity. Eucommia Bark helps restore
spent Jing and helps maintain healthy levels of Jing once Jing levels are
Eucommia Bark is traditionally considered to be supportive of the
skeletal structure and particularly beneficial to the lower back, legs, and to
the skeletal structure. And although Eucommia
Bark is primarily known as a powerful Yang Jing tonic, it is also a strong Yin
Jing nourishing herb. Because it provides both Yang and Yin, it is a superb
herb for men and women alike and can be used by almost anybody to support the
functions of the endocrine system, to support the physical structure, to tonify sexual functions, to support normal growth, to support
the normal healthy functions of the cardiovascular system, and to support healthy
immune functions. Eucommia Bark is thus the
quintessential example of a safe, mild and potent Kidney
tonic that builds Jing, Qi and Shen, with an emphasis
on its quintessential Jing building capability.
Eucommia Bark's first fame is in its Kidney tonifying
effects. It is in fact the primary herb in Chinese tonic herbalism
for supporting a strong, sturdy, skeletal structure and strong, flexible
joints. It is used to support the bones, ligaments and tendons.
Eucommia Seed supports the healthy
development and functions of bone in normal healthy individuals. Eucommia Seed has the same actions as Eucommia
Bark, but the action of Eucommia Seed on bone is
stronger than the action of Eucommia Bark due to
calcium compounds in the seed that specifically help to support bone health. Eucommia Bark and Eucommia Seed
are derived from the same plant.
Drynaria Rhizome tonifies the Kidney, supports
bones and related structural tissues in normal healthy people. Next to Eucommia bark and seed, Drynaria
is considered to be the most important herb in the Chinese pharmacopoeia for supporting
bone and ligaments. .
Dipsacus Root tonifies
Kidney and Liver, helps support healthy bones and ligaments, and supports
healthy blood vessels. This Kidney tonic is primarily used to support the
skeletal structure. Dipsacus is a premium herb for
athletes, dancers and others who seek to maintain strong bone and connective
tissue health. It can be used by
those who are involved in strenuous activities and may wish to do all that they
can to fortify the structure of the body. It is supportive for older people who
are experiencing structural difficulties simply due to natural aging. Dipsacus supports healthy blood circulation.
Morinda Root is an excellent Yang essence tonic. It is a
superb athletes herb and ranks among the most
important vitalizing herbs of the tonic system. It is considered a major
longevity herb and is a regular ingredient in Taoist formulations. It was very
widely used traditionally by Chinese martial artists.
Dragon Bone is the fossilized
(completely mineralized) bones of prehistoric
animals such as mastodon, hairy rhinoceros, hipparion,
deer, oxen, etc. This is not an
animal product. It is a mineral product. It provides a rich source of minerals
