Detoxification - The Kidneys
The kidneys do much of the cleansing of the blood on a moment to moment basis. It is not so important to cleanse the kidneys because they are not so prone to self-toxicity. However, the kidneys are a major target in tonic herbalism. To keep the kidneys strong, kidney tonics are used throughout life. In traditional Chinese health cultivation theory, the kidneys play a fundamental role in longevity. The kidneys feature a “longevity gene” known as klotho, which is abundant in healthy young kidneys, but becomes depleted as we live. Dragon Herbs offers around two dozen kidney tonic formulations. Here are a few go-to products for your consideration.
Rehmannia Six Formula - The steamed root of Rehmannia glutinosais called “the kidney’s own food” in Chinese health philosophy. This classic ancient formula contains six herbs that together cleanse, tonify and protect the kidneys.
Return to Youth Formula - This one-thousand-year-old classic formula from China is a famous kidney tonic that strengthens the kidney’s cleansing ability.
Imperial Garden Formula - This is the same formula as Return to Youth Formula, but with the addition of the super-tonic herb Cordyceps. Cordyceps is one of the premier kidney tonics of Asian herbalism.
