It is designed to strengthen the water element. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this formula is used to nourish the kidneys and nutritionally support the urinary and structural systems, eliminating water and providing extra joint support.
Chinese herbalists believe eucommia nourishes the kidney yang and the ligaments and bones. Eucommia has been used for centuries in the Far East for weakness. No single Western herb has been found to substitute for these qualities. Chinese herbalists also believe achyranthes relieves the body of excess fluids and strengthens it. They hold that achyranthes strengthens the liver, kidneys, bones and tendons. It has been used for convalescence, comfort and certain gynecological needs.

It can be helpful for broken bones, arthritis, backache, weak and brittle bones (osteoporosis), constipation, frequent urination (irritable bladder), chronic back problems, weak knees and ankles, kidney inflammation, kidney stones, prostate swelling, impotence, fatigue and insomnia due to waking up frequently to urinate.
KB-C contains three jing tonics: morinda, eucommia and epimedium. Eucommia has
been used to treat backache, painful urination, impotence, muscular weakness and osteoporosis. Epimedium, more commonly known as horny goat weed in the west, has been used in TCM for problems like impotence, back pain and arthritis.
Other tonics in KB-C include dong quai and Korean ginseng.
