Details of Apricot Seed and Linum Formula
Apricot seeds stop cough and lubricate the large intestines.
Apricot seeds stop cough and lubricate the large intestines.

Moistening and nourishing, this formula lubricates the intestines for itty-bitty hard-as-rock stools.

This formula uses cannabis seeds as the source of oil in this formula.
This might show up in a drug test! (Although it won’t get you stoned.)
Oil is important for dry stools as it helps guide and lubricate the feces out of the body more comfortably.Currently in the USA, we’re not allowed to import marijuana seeds for this purpose anymore. I’m told that if there is proof that the seeds have been processed such that they cannot be germinated, we can use them. Fortunately, this ban on cannabis seed import doesn’t seem to affect the importation of the extract powders that we use at EagleHerbs. Obviously, you can’t grow a plant from the “freeze dried” extract of tea, so we’re good to go.

Ma Zi Ren Wan is very close to the Chinese Formula Run Chang Wan.

Other ingredients in this formula stimulate intestinal movement by acting on the nervous system, and other herbs generate body fluids to help moisturize the dry poop.
