The main ingredient in Du Zhong Pian, or "Eucommia Combination", is eucommia bark. Eucommia bark comes from the eucommia, or hardy rubber tree. The tree is a member of the rubber family and is found in the Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou and Hubei provinces of China. Mature trees can reach a height of 50 feet; however, the tree is not killed to obtain the bark. Instead, small patches are peeled away from mature trees in the late summer and early autumn. The inner bark contains a white, rubbery liquid that accounts for eucommia's herbal properties.
In traditional Chinese herbalism, eucommia bark has sweet, warm properties. It is considered the primary herb used to increase yang functions in the body. Eucommia Combination uses eucommia bark as the main ingredient to rebalance vital yang, and also has other key herbal ingredients which restore yin essence, leading to an overall balancing, calming, body-strengthening formula.
