THE FORMULA EXPLAINED
Improve Qi Flow – Qi is the life force that flows through all living beings and is the energy that enables each organ to function properly. Prepared Cyperus Rhizome (Zhi Xiang Fu) improves Qi flow while activating vital energy in order to disperse stagnation and alleviate pain.
Invigorate Spleen – The spleen is responsible for transforming food absorbed by the stomach into Qi – energy. Tangerine Peel (Chen Pi), Poria (Fu Ling), Chinese Yam Rhizome (Shan Yao), and Cardamom Seed (Sha Ren), all work to nourish and invigorate the Spleen.
Strengthen Stomach – The Stomach functions to break down the food in order for the Spleen to absorb and distribute the nutrients. Chinese Yam Rhizome (Shan Yao) invigorates and strengthens the stomach.
Remove Dampness – The spleen, in coordination with the kidneys, control the balance of fluids in the body. When the spleen qi is deficient, excess fluid accumulates creating dampness within the body. White Atractylodes Rhizome (Bai Zhu), Poria (Fu Ling), Tangerine Peel (Chen Pi), and Cardamom Seed (Sha Ren) remove dampness from the body.
Alleviate Poor Appetite – Ginseng (Ren Shen), Chinese Yam Rhizome (Shan Yao), Hawthorn Fruit (Shan Zha), Medicated Leaven (Shen Qu) and White Atractylodes Rhizome (Bai Zhu) invigorate the spleen and one’s vital energy to increase appetite and absorption of food, which therefore increases energy.
Relieve Indigestion – According to TCM, indigestion is due to food stagnation. Medicated Leaven (Shen Qu), Hawthorn Fruit (Sha Zha), Tangerine Peel (Chen Pi,) and Cardamom Seed (Sha Ren), strengthen the stomach to promote digestion and therefore relieve bloating and nausea.
Relieve Diarrhea – Deficiency in the Spleen can contribute to diarrhea as it is responsible for the proper movement of water in the body – ascending and descending. When excess water descends, it can cause disfunction in the intestines. Cardamom seed (Sha Ren), Medicated Leaven (Shen Qu), Chinese Yan Rhizome (Shan Yao), and Hawthorn Fruit (Shan Zha)
