What does it do?
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Xue Fu Zhu Yu Wan promotes circulation of blood and Liver Qi to alleviate pain. It is particularly well suited for blood stasis which affects the upper body (above the diaphragm) such as angina pectoris, coronary artery disease, hypertension, intercostal neuralgia, stabbing headache, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, or even hiccup. Because Xue Fu Zhu Yu Wan effectively regulates the movement of Liver Qi and powerfully dispels blood stasis, it can also be used in cases of menstrual irregularities or dysmenorrhea. Chronic blood stasis and Qi stagnation tend to lead to heat and eventually fire, which may result in additional signs such as palpitations, irritability, insomnia, evening tidal fever or what is known as "5 center heat," a sensation of heat in the palms, soles of the feet and chest. Xue Fu Zhu Yu Wan may also be used for menopausal syndrome.
The tongue and pulse will reflect the underlying blood and Qi stasis. The tongue may be dark red or dusky and have dark spots, particularly on the sides. The lips may even be purplish. The pulse will be tight and wiry or choppy.
Note: Chest pain may be the sign of a serious and potentially life threatening condition. Consult your physician before using this or any other product to address acute chest pain.
Xue Fu Zhu Yu Pian is composed of 11 medicinal herbs. It is essentially a variation of Si Ni San (Frigid Extremities Powder) and Tao Hong Si Wu Tang (Four-Substance with Safflower and Peach Pit Decoction).
The chief herbs of this formula are substances which profoundly invigorate blood and relieve pain: Tao Ren (Peach seed), Hong Hua (Safflower) and Chuan Xiong (Sichuan Lovage root). These herbs improve circulation and stop pain, particularly in the upper body. Deputy herbs Dang Gui (Angelica Sinensis) and Chi Shao (Red Peony root) also invigorate blood and alleviate pain, but their action is strongest in the lower body. Similarly, Niu Xi (Achyranthes) encourages the downward movement of blood. Niu Xi is a potent blood-mover and is renowned for its use in gynecological disorders such as dysmenorrhea. In such cases, Niu Xi is often combined with Dang Gui and Tao Ren, as it is here. Dang Gui has been studied for its effect on contraction and relaxation of the smooth muscle of the uterus.
Sheng Di Huang (Rehmanniae root) cools the blood and clears heat and works with Dang Gui to protect the body's Yin and nourish the blood. Chai Hu (Bupleurum) is a flag-ship medicinal herb for regulating Liver Qi. Here, it is used in combination with Jie Geng (Platycodon root) and Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange) to relieve constraint in the chest and promote the free movement of Qi, which of course promotes the free movement of blood. The use of Chai Hu (which has an up-bearing nature) with Nui Xi (which has a down-bearing nature) helps this formula to restore proper balance and movement of Qi and blood throughout the body.
Gan Cao (Licorice root) harmonizes the actions of the other 10 herbs.

How do I use it?
The standard dosage for Blood Stasisclear™ is 6 tablets taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. One bottle lasts users 11 to 17 days. The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations based on body weight and other factors.
Blood Stasisclear™ has a mild action and therefore it usually takes time before its effects become apparent. It may take one month or more before symptoms begin to improve. An initial course of treatment is suggested as 4 - 6 bottles taken at the full dose.
