This formula contains the same herbs found in KB-C but in a highly concentrated blend. Its Chinese name jian gu can be translated to mean “strengthen the bones.” It is designed to strengthen the water element. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this formula is used to nourish the kidneys and nutritionally support the urinary and structural systems, eliminating water and providing extra joint support. Chinese herbalists believe eucommia nourishes the kidney yang and the ligaments and bones. Eucommia has been used for centuries in the Far East for weakness. No single Western herb has been found to substitute for these qualities. Chinese herbalists also believe achyranthes relieves the body of excess fluids and strengthens it. They hold that achyranthes strengthens the liver, kidneys, bones and tendons. It has been used for convalescence, comfort and certain gynecological needs.
