Branch Kidney Ingredients Shu Di (cooked Radix Rehmanniae) 139.5 mg ~ Shan Zhu Yu (Fructus Corni) 111 mg ~ Zhi Mu (Rhizoma Anemarrhenae) 82.5 mg ~ Huang Bai (Cortex Phellodendri) 82.5 mg ~ Shan Yao (Radix Dioscoreae) 82.5 mg ~ Fu Ling (Poria) 82.5 mg ~ Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis) 82.5 mg ~ Dan Pi (Cortex Moutan) 82.5 mg Within this formula, Shu Di (cooked Radix Rehmanniae) is the sovereign ingredient. It enriches kidney yin, boosts the essence, and fills the marrow. Shan Zhu Yu (Fructus Corni) assists in warming and enriching the kidneys and boosting the liver. Shan Yao (Radix Dioscoreae) enriches the kidneys and supplements the spleen. Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis) and Fu Ling (Poria) lead yang down into the yin tract (i.e., into the urinary tract), thus leading ministerial fire back down to its lower source. Dan Pi (Cortex Moutan) drains liver fire and cools the blood. In addition, it quickens the blood and transforms stasis. Zhi Mu (Rhizoma Anemarrhenae) supplements yin and drains fire, while Huang Bai (Cortex Phellodendri) clears heat and eliminates dampness. Some Chinese authors also say that the combination of these two medicinals also leads ministerial fire back down to its lower source. This formula comes from Qin Jing-ming’s Qing dynasty Zheng Yin Mai Zhi (Patterns, Causes, Pulses & Treatments) published in 1702
