Mobility 2 is based on the traditional formula Clematis Combination (Shu Jing Huo Xue Tang). In traditional Chinese medicine, arthritis is caused by poor circulation, accumulation of moisture in the joints, and inflammation related to blood stagnation. Mobility 2 treats these conditions while also nourishing and circulating the blood and providing analgesic relief of pain.
Red peony (chi shao), persica (tao ren), tang kuei (dang gui), and ligusticum (chuan xiong) are included to move and invigorate the blood. Atractylodes (bai zhu), poria (fu ling), and vitex (man jing zi) leach dampness. Red peony, tang kuei and licorice (gan cao) have anti-inflammatory effects. Ligusticum, chiang-huo, clematis (wei ling xian), and angelica (bai zhi) have analgesic effects. Citrus (chen pi), and clematis (wei ling xian), invigorates the circulation of qi. Tang kuei and rehmannia (shu di huang) are used to nourish the blood. Siler (fang feng) dispels wind, cold and damp and is traditionally used for rheumatic pain. Achyranthes (niu xi) relieves aching knees and back. Gentiana (qin jiao) eliminates pain, with heat signs.
