Introducing: Planetary Formulas Flex-Ability, a classic, time-tested Chinese herbal formula now available in convenient tablet and liquid extract form.Generations of UseThe Flex-Ability formula is known in China as Shu Jin San. It was originally created by herbalists to enhance circulation to joint and muscle tissue areas. The formula evolved for the purpose of causing an abundance of nutrient-rich fluids to move into these areas, nourishing the tissues. Although traditionally used to support normal joint and muscle flexibility, today it is widely used in Asia either before or after strenuous hard work or exercise, often by practitioners of the martial arts and by the elderly. Originally created as a powder, Flex-Ability was more recently developed as convenient tablets and tincture.The Flexible Herbal OptionAccording to traditional Chinese herbalism, the herbs in Flex-Ability provide support to the bones and tendons. Flex-Ability combines achyranthes root, teasel root and Angelica pubescens root, with an additional blend of gambir twigs, chaenomeles fruit, ligusticum rhizome, tien chi ginseng root, angelica root, siler root, lycii fruit, notopterygii root and dong quai root.Combining Tradition and ConvenienceLike other Planetary Formulas products, Flex-Ability unites time-tested herbal traditions with modern convenience.
