Strong Bones


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


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, life-enhancing tonic.


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 normal.


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


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


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


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


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 useful to structural tissue. Furthermore, Dragon Bone has an "astringent" action.


Oyster Shell


Detoxified Oyster Shell is ground into a fine powder and is an excellent source of minerals. It, like Dragon Bone, helps support bone maintenance.
