Rehmannia Root is a native of China and is one of the first species of the genus to be introduced and cultivated in the West.
It thrives in light, moist, well-drained, neutral-to-acid, sandy soil in full sun; and when cultivated, the thick, reddish-yellow roots are lifted in autumn or early winter for use in herbal medicine.
Long used in China to heal many ailments and even as a Tonic to Prolong Life, Rehmannia Root is becoming popular in the West as a blood refresher.
It is often recommended by herbalists to regulate deficient blood patterns, such as anemia, irregular menses, uterine and postpartum bleeding, pallor and light-headedness.
Also called a Tonic for the Blood, Rehmannia supports improved circulation throughout the body, especially to the brain. Healthy blood is a good start for a healthier, better body.
