    Shu Gan Pian (Wan) Product Details
    What does it do?
    LiverSoothe™ is appropriate for conditions in which binding depression of liver Qi results in fullness and distention in the chest and hypochondria, stomach ache, gastric upset, vomiting and/or acid regurgitation. When the liver Qi is unable to course freely, heat signs develop and move upward as in acid reflux, vomiting etc.. When the Qi mechanism is impeded, blood stasis may also develop, which results in pain.

    Primary signs of liver depression with heat and stasis include irritability, epigastric pain, costal (rib-side) pain, feeling of oppression in the chest and possibly a bitter taste in the mouth. The tongue will be red, especially on the sides and there may be a yellow coating. The pulse will be rapid and wiry.

    This is a modern Chinese formulation based on the classical formula Jin Ling Zi San. Shu Gan Wan is more focused on alleviating pain.

    Shu Gan Pian (LiverSoothe™) is composed of twelve medicinal herbs which course the liver Qi, move blood, clear heat and harmonize the stomach.

    Chuan Lian Zi (Sichuan Chinaberry fruit) is an important Qi regulating herb. Here, it is paired with Yan Hu Suo (Cordyalis) and Xiang Fu (Cyperus rhizome), both of which are also effective Qi moving herbs. This combination is especially effective for relieving hypochondriac and abdominal pain resulting from Qi depression. Xiang Fu has been studied in particular for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders and has shown effectiveness at relieving abdominal cramps and pain due to Qi stagnation. Bai Shao (white Peony) is included to soften the liver and also relieve pain.

    Mu Xiang (Aucklandia root), Hou Po (Magnolia cortex) and Sha Ren (Cardamon seed) are combined with Xiang Fu here to harmonize the liver and stomach and restore appetite. Dou Kou Ren (Amomum seed), in conjunction with Sha Ren and Hou Po dissolves dampness and strengthens the stomach. Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) and Fu Ling (Poria) further help to eliminate dampness, strengthen the middle and promote proper movement of Qi and relieve pain.

    Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange fruit) and Pian Jiang Huang (Curcuma wenyujin) move Qi and blood and alleviate pain.
