THE ART OF WAR
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) herbal formulas are based on the philosophy of Jun-Chen-Zuo-Shi, a theory similar to synergistic role play in the ancient book “The Art of War”, or teamwork in modern-day concept. Each of these distinct TCM herbs has its respective role(s) in Redmint's collections of skincare, herbal extracts/drinks. These precise herb blends maximize efficacy and are stronger than any single herb on its own.
Jun herb: as the Chief, or General Herb is the principle active herb, delivering the main effect in treating symptoms and discomforts.
Chen herb, known as the Prime Minister Herb, strengthens the curative effect of the Jun herb by providing support for it. Chen soothes surrounding inflammation and any co-existing side effects.
Zuo herb, as the Assistant Herb, aids in taking care of less important aspects of illness. It further reduces any accompanying side effects and downstream inflammation; moderates, corrects and eliminates any possible harsh toxicity; and harmonizes and integrates the herb blend together.
Shi herb, as the Messenger Herb, focuses on optimizing absorption and directs the formula though the fastest and most efficient meridian channels to get to the war zone, or “health battle ground”.
