Eucommia Bark in Traditional Chinese Medicine
Du zhong supplements the Kidneys and Liver and strengthens the sinews and bones. The Kidneys in TCM nourish the bones, while the Liver nourishes the tendons and sinews. Due to this, eucommia bark is vital in treating a weak, sore or painful lower back and knees.*
Also, the Kidneys store the energy that forms the source of reproductive energy. By benefiting the Kidneys, du zhong is used to treat reproductive and urinary disorders such as impotence and incontinence. It is also known to prevent miscarriages, and is thought to lower blood pressure.*
