Modern research also found that it works, in the same way Dang Shen (Codonopsis) and Huang Qi (Astragalus), work to support immune function. All these evidences also confirm its old claims by the ancient Chinese wisdom – long term usage of Eucommia can help with weight loss and rejuvenation.

Because it provides both Yin and Yang, it is a superb herb for men and women alike and can be used by almost anybody to help support the functions of the skeletal and endocrine systems, and to help support normal healthy sexual functions.
Eucommia’s first fame is in its Kidney tonifying effects. It is in fact the primary herb in Chinese tonic herbalism for building a strong, sturdy, flexible skeletal structure and to support normal growth. It is used to help strengthen the bones, ligaments and tendons.
Eucommia is one of the few herbs in Chinese tonic herbalism that is sufficiently powerful, balanced and broad spectrum that it may be used alone. However, it may be combined with any number of other tonic herbs in a formulation or tonic herbal program designed to support the Yin and Yang of the Kidney.
Eucommia is the quintessential example of a safe, mild and potent Kidney tonic that builds Jing.*
