Rehmannia root, (or sok day-sang day in Chinese), has a pleasant flavor and, health-wise, it affects the systems of the body that include the blood, kidneys, bones, and tendons. It is considered a cardiac tonic, a diuretic, an alterative, a uterine tonic, and a hemostatic.
Rehmannia is an important herb encountered frequently in Chinese herb formulas. It is used to purify and nourish the blood, strengthen the kidneys and rejuvenate the bones and tendons. There are two forms commonly sold. One is the unprocessed root ("sang day"), which is considered the best for helping support the kidneys and reducing excess acids from the body. The other is a processed form ("sok day"), which is preferred for the potential to help support symptoms of the blood. It can be useful in supporting anemia and heart weakness.
Rehmannia can be useful in helping build the body during recovery from illness, and it helps reduce fatigue. It is given to women to help support menstrual irregularities and infertility, as a tonic during pregnancy and to help fight postpartum hemorrhage.
