About this formula
Stress got you bloated?
Bloating giving you stress?
This formula provides herbal support for indigestion and a variety of other gastric complaints. Specifically, bloating, gas (without a very strong odor), stress-induced ulcer or gastritis, heartburn, abdominal bloating and a lack of appetite due to the sense that your tummy is always full. Other functions of this formula can apply to certain abdominal complaints that arise from the menstruation such as bloating, gas, gastrointestinal upset and even breast tenderness. It can also have a positive effect on the moodiness of PMS, though that is a secondary effect. The primary focus of this formula is in the abdomen.

stronger function of eliminating qi stagnation.

“nervous system” and “intestinal movement.” That’s a good thing for your bloating.
吳茱萸 evodia fruit Fructus Evodiae Rutaecarpae
Like Chuan Lian Zi above, this herb is used for when stress affects the functions of the stomach and intestines. This herb actually extends the benefits of this formula to include
