Uncaria 6 is based on research on its individul herb ingredients, revealing an antihypertensive action. Of several possible ingredients, these were selected for their safety in long term use and were formulated to have a harmonizing action. Uncaria, prunella, and scute purge liver fire, while tang-kuei nourishes liver blood. Together, these regulate the liver to control wind, expecially as it manifests in contraction of the muscles regulating the blood vessels. Eucommia gently tonifies kidney yang while loranthus nourishes kidney yin. Together, these prevent deterioration of kidney essence that leads to increased blood pressure with aging. Eucommia and loranthus also nourish the liver, supporting tang-kuei in that action. Some patent medicines have been developed in China for treating hypertension that include similar ingredients; examples are Compound Cortex Eucommia Tablets and Jiangya Wan (Blood Pressure Lowering Pills). All of these formulas are suitable for treating hypertension that is due to vascular constriction. Hypertension that is due solely or primarily to other causes, such as arteriosclerosis, or renal blockage may not react to the herbs and may require drug therapy. However, also try Chrysanthemum 9 in such cases, as it has a different set of antihypertensive herbs, including some that are reputed to help with renal hypertension. Vascular constriction usually relaxed when a person is in a relaxed state; thus, if an individual with hypertension can lower their blood pressure when under ideal conditions, then Uncaria 6 should be of benefit to relieve the vascular tension with stressful situations.
