Eucommia Bark


Eucommia bark (Eucommia ulmoides) is an adaptogenic tonic herb known for its ability to replenish the expansive kidney energy that assists the body in generating physical strength, stamina and power. Eucommia bark is in fact the primary herb in Chinese tonic herbalism for building a strong, sturdy, flexible skeletal structure and is used to help strengthen the bones, ligaments and tendons. Eucommia bark is the primary herb for restoring and rebuilding kidney Yang and is also known to replenish the liver.

Although the bark is very a energizing substance, it is not a stimulant per se, but works as an adaptogen to both activate circulation as well as calm the nerves if needed.

Also studied and well documented for its blood pressure lowering qualities and actions as an anti-inflammatory agent.
