Nature’s Sunshine’s Chinese herbal combinations are based on 5000 years of Chinese herbal tradition. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes the use of herbal medicine, continues to provide primary healthcare throughout Asia even in these modern times.This Chinese combination was specially formulated to supplement the needs of a weakened metal constitution. The metal element in TCM philosophy is related to the lungs and colon. Metal people are considered precise, orderly and reserved.The Chinese call this formula fu lei, which can be translated to mean “strengthen the weak and thin.” In TCM philosophy it is believed that when the metal element is weak, the upper body and respiratory system are affected.
