Lower Back Support™
Botanical Support for the Lower Back

The search for healthy back support is one of the more common quests as we enter the 21st century. Drastic changes in our processed foods diet, an increasingly toxic environment and unhealthy work regimens are probably at the core. If one is at all active, the need for optimum back support becomes an important issue in everyday life especially as we age, and spend increasing time at computer terminals with lack of exercise. Now ancient Chinese wisdom may help offset the ravages of physical and environmental stress on our backs. Combining modern convenience with herbal tradition, Planetary Herbals has made two classic back support formulas: Lower Back Support™ and Neck and Shoulders Support™.

Centuries of Use
In Chinese herbalism, herbs are used to support general back health. Ancient formulas have long supported specific back areas by focusing on the liver, kidneys and specific muscles. According to traditional Chinese texts, the kidneys are stated to "rule the bones," while the liver is said to "govern the tendons." The botanicals used in the lower back formula are traditionally used to support the kidneys and liver, and are said to "strengthen the sinews and bones...and benefit the joints," while herbs for the neck and shoulders are also said to support muscle relaxation.

Lower Back Support™
Planetary Herbals Lower Back Support™ is based on one of the most highly regarded tonifiers of China, known as Rehmannia Six (Liu Wei Di Huang Wan). It was originally created by herbalists to tonify and strengthen the kidneys. Lower Back Support™ further utilizes achyranthes as its primary herb. Though almost unknown in the West, it has been in wide use in Chinese herbal formulas since 206 B.C. Achyranthes has been blended with another common, though again little known herb, eucommia. Together, these two uniquely beneficial tonifiers are combined with rehmannia, dioscorea, poria cocos, alisma and moutan peony, the primary herbs of the famous original Chinese tonifier, Rehmannia Six.
