HOW IT WORKS
According to Eastern philosophy, life permits us to work with what we have on earth here and now—body and mind—in order to reclaim and maintain the innate energy and spirit that reside within us. Energy and spirit must be awakened, nurtured and balanced in order for life to flourish. TCM philosophy names five distinct energies that permeate the body: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. In order to feel your best, these energies must be in balance. Water is the reservoir of life. It’s no wonder how important this energy is as it relates to your adrenal system, sexual health and kidneys. To address your water element, try KB-C (-). Its Chinese name jian gu can be translated to mean “strengthen the bones.” It is designed to strengthen the water element.
Our Chinese herbal blends carefully follow the principles of ancient Chinese Medicine that have been practiced for more than two millennia. KB-C TCM or Jian gu is designed to “strengthen the bones.” These good-for-you herbs were selected for their many beneficial properties.
For more than 35 years, we’ve partnered with the same incredible vendor to collaborate with farmers in traditional communities to bring only the finest herbs from China to the US. And we’ve conducted multiple on-site audits throughout the years to re-verify the quality of both their facility and herbs. Our farmers are deeply attached to the land they have lived on and worked for generations, and they practice regenerative farming methods to preserve it for future use.
THE STORY BEHIND KB-C, CHINESE
High in the mountain regions of China you find eucommia trees, part of the rubber tree family. Its Chinese name Du zhong came from a Taoist monk who was allegedly immortal. This suggests that the herb helps convey longevity, health and vitality.
Achyranthes grows in China, Japan, India and Nepal. Historical use includes the encouragement of urinary flow. In Nepal, they also use the juice from this root for oral applications.
Drynaria has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than a thousand years to build bone strength.
In Traditional Asian medicine, hoelen (Poria cocos) has been used for centuries to increase urinary flow.
