What are Trophorestorative?

The “Trophic” state is representative of the vital capacity of a system or tissue in the body. Often these herbs have tissue specificity within the body, such as endocrine, skin, lungs, heart, stomach and female reproductive organs.

How do Trophorestoratives Work?

In chronic states of irritation or depression, some degree of vital deficiency will manifest in an affected tissue, with a gradual loss of its functional capability. In any case when an organ or tissue is determined to be suffering from this state, trophorestorative herbs can be used safely as a long-term measure to restore normal function. Some examples specific to various organ systems include:

Nervous System



Connective Tissue
