This tonic recipe is a rich and well-rounded herbal formula that tastes amazing and will replenish low functioning adrenals faster than you can say "kidney bean".
Rehmannia is known as "the kidneys' own food." It is the most important Chinese herb for replenishing the kidneys and adrenal glands. Rehmannia appears to combat adrenal suppression caused by steroid hormones and has a tonic effect on the adrenal cortex which is similar to that of licorice. It is believed to support the cells of the adrenal cortex and pituitary during times of prolonged stress.
Pau d'Arco eliminates fungal and viral toxins in the body and purifies the blood. Pau d'arco is often found in cleansing and detoxification remedies and recommended by master herbalists for candida, allergies, herpes, and more. Pau d'arco has anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful in the treatment of inflammatory conditions.
