Improve your health and wellness with Eucommia ulmoides, also known as Du Zhong or the Hardy Rubber Tree. This small tree is native to China and is widely cultivated for its bark, which holds great value in herbology such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Eucommia is an unusual tree because of its high latex content in both the leaves and stems. Its shiny dark green leaves resemble those of an elm tree and it is known for being tolerant of urban conditions, making it easy to transplant. At maturity, it takes on a rounded to broad spreading tree shape, making it perfect for lawns, parks, golf courses, or commercial grounds.

Du Zhong, also referred to as Gutta-percha, is a commonly used herb in Chinese herbalism. It is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs and is highly regarded for its tonic properties for the kidneys and liver. This herb is specifically known for its positive effects on the lower part of the body, making it great for overall wellness. One notable benefit of Du Zhong is its ability to reduce high blood pressure. In a clinical trial involving 119 people, 46% of those treated with Du Zhong showed a significant reduction in blood pressure.

Don't confuse Eucommia ulmoides with Eucosmia or Eucosma. This amazing tree is truly unique and offers numerous health benefits. Whether you're looking to improve your overall well-being or searching for a natural solution to high blood pressure, Eucommia ulmoides is a fantastic option. Don't miss out on the opportunity to experience the incredible advantages of this remarkable tree.
