Ingredients

Huang Qi 黃耆 astragalus root, milk-vetch root, milkvetch root Astragali Radix

    This is the herb that does all the heavy-lifting in this formula. In fact, “lifting” is a key term that applies to the function of this formula. The “Spleen” is said to help transform food into energy (think of this as digestive processes), but then this nutrition needs to be lifted to the lungs where they are then distributed elsewhere in the body. When the digestion is weak, the nutrition (or “grain qi”) cannot rise from the abdomen to be distributed through the body. This “spleen qi not lifting” then causes fatigue, bloating, dizziness upon rising, that sort of thing.

Bai Zhu 白术 , bai shu ovate atractylodes, (white) atractylodes rhizome [supports pregnancy]

    This Bai Zhu (pronounced “buy chew”) helps huang qi above support the digestive functions.

Zhi Gan Cao 炙甘草 licorice root Radix Glycyrrhizae prep. [caution]

    Another herb that supports digestion. Of course licorice root is added to most Chinese formulas because it helps all the ingredients play together well, however in this formula we use the licorice root that has been honey-fried. This process helps this herb strengthen the stomach functions in support of the digestive processes.

Ren Shen 人蔘 ginseng root Radix Panax Ginseng made from real ginseng

    Another heavy-weight in the world of herbs that provide digestive support. This is ginseng, famed world-wide as an energy tonic. In this formula, the energy arises directly from improved digestive functions.

Chen Pi 陳皮 aged tangerine peel, citrus Citri reticulatae Pericarpium

    When the digestion is weak, one outcome is gurgling and bloating. This dried tangerine peel addresses those symptoms of “dampness”.

Dang Gui 當歸 tangkuei, Chinese angelica root Radix Angelicae Sinensis [supports pregnancy]

    This is an herb that is added to prevent side-effects. Because Spleen qi deficiency (the underlying issue addressed by this formula) can lead to the production of dampness in the stomach and intestines, we use a lot of drying herbs in this formula. The overuse of drying herbs can cause new problems. The addition of this single moistening herb prevents that from taking place. This formula does it all!

Chai Hu 柴胡 hare’s ear root, thorowax root, bupleurum Radix Bupleuri [caution]

Sheng Ma 升麻 bugbane rhizome, cimicifuga, black cohosh rhizome Rhizoma Cimicifugae

    These last two herbs both help the Huang Qi direct qi upward from the digestive organs to the lungs where it is then distributed body-wide.
