The Story Behind VS-C
VS-C is a proprietary blend of 10 Chinese herbs grown and harvested in China. These herbs have been used for thousands of years in TCM to combat disease and help maintain health. In the mid-1980s, Nature’s Sunshine worked with Wenwei Xie, a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine from Beijing, who came to the US as part of a research project on Chinese remedies for immune support. Working with Dr. Xie, Nature’s Sunshine developed VS-C based on classical TCM formulations for the immune system.
VS-C helps the body maintain a vital yin-yang balance. As a metal (Jin)-enhancing blend, VS-C is designed to promote connection and purity according to TCM…to nurture the lungs (Fei) and large intestine (Da Chang), the two organs associated with the metal element. The large intestine lets go of toxins and waste while the lungs breathe in fresh air to nourish the blood and exhale additional toxins.
