Formula explanation
Within this formula, Zhu Ru harmonizes the liver and stomach and clears depressive heat. Zhi Shi courses the liver and rectifies the qi. It also helps transform phlegm and strongly descends the qi. Ban Xia, Fu Ling, and Chen Pi eliminate dampness and transform phlegm while also descending the qi and downbearing counterflow. Fu Ling along with Da Zao and Gan Cao nourish and construct the heart spirit and thus quiet the spirit. Da Zao and Gan Cao can also be said to harmonize all the other ingredients in the formula as well as harmonize the middle.


Three capsules two times per day equal not less that 30 grams of bulk medicinals. However, because our extraction process is much more efficient than stovetop decoction, we believe this amount of our extract is actually more like the equivalent of 45-60 grams of bulk-dispensed herbs.
