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

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 normal.
Eucommia Bark is
traditionally considered to be supportive of the skeletal structure and particularly
beneficial to the lower back, legs, and to the. 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

bone health. Eucommia Bark and Eucommia Seed are derived from the same plant.
