Rehmannia: Premier Herbal Tonifier Of China
Rehmannia was first written about in the earliest classic of Chinese herbalism, Shen Nong Ben Cao (circa 1st century A.D.). It formed the basis for a series of formulas designed to support the kidneys, which Chinese herbalists considered the most important organ for energy production and referred to as the "root of life". Unlike ginseng formulas, which were predominantly used in China by the elderly, rehmannia formulas were used by people chronically fatigued due to overwork, stress, and lack of rest.
