Keep Your Bones, Tendons and Cartilage Strong, Supple and Quick to Heal
Eucommia is a jing tonic, which means it fortifies everything related to the kidney organ system. In practice this means it helps your brain to function better and it helps your whole central nervous system to function better which often relates to lowering stress and anxiety. It helps to give you feeling more confidence, more certainty, and more grounded.
Eucommia helps to heal the adrenal glands, which again means it lowers your levels of stress and anxiety.
It nourishes your reproductive organs and brings your hormones into balance.
Eucommia specialises in healing and strengthening the bones and connective tissue; the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. This is excellent to keep yourself strong and supple throughout your life. Keeping bones strong and connective tissue supple becomes more of an issue as we get older. Even if you are younger, you can benefit by taking it to stop such problems developing.
If you have had any kind of injury, eucommia is helpful. It’s a tonic herb so it is strengthening your body rather than having a medicinal effect. But it has been used for thousands of years to speed up healing when there is an injury such as sprains or broken bones. At such times, eucommia is taken in medium to large size doses, when it will heal the damage more quickly in most cases.
If you have a piece of the whole herb ie of a piece of the bark, and you break it open, you see it has a layer of white sticky stuff that looks almost like glue. This relates to what in medicine is called the Doctrine of Signatures, where you can often tell what benefit a given herb has by what it looks like. For example, walnuts are good for the brain and they look like little brains, and kidney beans look like kidneys and so on. In the same way, eucommia looks a little like connective tissue. So something that looks like it feeds your connective tissue, actually does.
Eucommia is a premium herb in Chinese medicine, and I’m happy to be able to make a very high quality product available to you at Higher Self Herbs at an affordable price. Give it a try; take it to strengthen your tendons and cartilage, or just have some handy in case of injury or damage."
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 is the primary plant-sourced herb in Chinese herbalism used to tonify the Kidney Yang functions, in particular as it affects the skeletal structure. Although Eucommia is primarily known as a powerful Yang Jing tonic, it is also a strong Yin Jing nourishing herb as well. Eucommia's first fame is in its Kidney tonifying effects. It is in fact the primary herb in Chinese tonic herbalism for building a strong, sturdy, flexible skeletal structure. It is used to strengthen the bones, ligaments and tendons. Because it provides both Yin and Yang, it is a superb herb for men and women alike and can be used by almost anybody to strengthen the physical structure, to promote the functions of the endocrine system, to promote healthy sexual functions, to support normal growth, and to strengthen resistance. Eucommia is the quintessential example of a safe, gentle and potent Kidney tonic that builds Jing.

What are herbal extracts? Herbal extracts are an excellent way of getting the nutrition and goodness from a herb, without the trouble of sometimes elaborate preparation. They are also a way of getting the goodness in as concentrated a form as possible.
How are herbal extracts made? The raw herbs are prepared by hot water extraction, the water is then evaporated off until all that is left is the essential oils and active ingredients. These are then bound together in an excipient, small amounts of non-GM corn flour. This is the most pure and unadulterated way to enjoy tonic herbal extracts possible.
