What does it do?

Supports Bones And Tendons

No matter what happened, it is always your passion to get back on the tennis court or golf links sooner than late, or do whatever you enjoy doing.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) applications for trauma and injuries dates back several centuries. And unlike the western approach of icing an injury, thereby decreasing blood flow, the TCM approach is to speed healing by invigorating Blood. This allows both Qi and blood to flow unobstructed.

One of the most famous TCM herbal remedies for this is Jin Gu Die Da Wan. Our unique formulation of this classic TCM remedy is BruiseMender™.

Complex Formula Breaks Blood Stasis

BruiseMender has its roots in martial arts. It is easy for any lay person to understand why bruising and swelling occur in martial art schools.

BruiseMender is one of the most complex formulas in Chinese medicine. In fact, BruiseMender has 23 ingredients.

Several of the herbs in BruiseMender break up blood stasis, which is essentially blood trapped in the vessels. Other herbs move and strengthen the blood. In addition, some of the herbs by nature strengthen bones and connective tissue. And some of the herbs are mild Yang tonics. Yang is warming energy, which is necessary for speeding up healing time. When an injury occurs, blood has a tendency to stagnate. BruiseMender works by breaking up this blood stasis. This action is critical, especially if you are following the usual western protocol of immobilizing a joint, which causes blood stasis.

How Does BruiseMender Work?

Because of the large amount of ingredients in the formula, the actions of the herbs will be abbreviated and grouped together.

The chief blood-stasis breaking herb in BruiseMender is San Qi (Notoginseng). The other herbs that assist in resolving blood stasis and/or invigorate the blood include Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root); Bai Shao (White Peony Root); Chi Shao (Red Peony Root); Tao Ren (Peach Kernel); Hong Hua (Safflower), which also unblocks the Channels; Liu Ji Nu (Artemesia Herb); Su Mu (Sappan Wood); Mu Dan Pi (Tree Peony Bark); Mo Yao (Myrrh Resin); Ru Xiang (Boswellia Resin), Jiang Huang (Turmeric), and San Leng (Bur Reed Tuber), all three of which also promote Qi movement; and Tian Gua Zi (Muskmelon Seed).

Ingredients in the formula that may strengthen sinews and bones include Gu Sui Bu (Drynaria Rhizome); Xu Duan (Teasel Root); Zi Ran Tong (Pyritum); and Tu Bie Chong (Ground Beetle), which also dissolves stasis.

Supporting herbs in the formula are Fang Feng (Siler Root); Zhi Shi (Immature Bitter Orange), which breaks up stagnant Qi and eliminates accumulations; Mu Tong (Akebia vine), which promotes and unblocks urination; and two herbs which expel phlegm: Jie Geng (Platycodon Root) and Gan Cao (Licorice Root).

Please note that our tablets may appear neutral in finishing and a little brittle. You may observe a tiny bit of fine powder at the bottom of your bottle and occasionally one or a couple of broken tablets after transportation.
