Rehmannia is said to be the “Kidney’s own food”. It is a fundamental Kidney tonic in Chinese tonic herbalism and is considered to be a primary longevity herb. It is found in a great many common “anti-aging” formulations. It is considered rejuvenating and life lengthening.
Prevent burnout, replenish Kidney/Adrenal energy, reduce fatigue, and nourish blood with this classic Chinese formula that dates back almost 1,000 years.
Currently, this formula is popular for replenishing depleted energy due to over work, stress, and sleeplessness.
Steamed Rehmannia is said to benefit sexual functions in men and women and is included in almost every formula that is designed to strengthen reproductive functions, including fertility. It forms the Yin base of many men’s potency formulas.
Similar to he shou wu, Rehmannia is one of the premier yin jing herbs in TCM, meaning that it deeply replenishes and restores one’s energy rather than having a noticeably energizing or stimulating effect.
