    What does it do?
    If you are an average American, you probably eat more than you should. We are surrounded by an abundance of delicious junk food, and tend to have a good appetite. When we go to a party, buffet, or a celebration, chances are we will overeat. Overeating often results in bloating, food stagnation, along with belching, burping and gas. In the worst cases, it can also include acidic taste, nausea, and vomiting.

    Bao He Pian is a Chinese herbal supplement recommended for aiding digestion, whether after a big meal or other cases involving food stagnation. Bao He Pian is formulated to contain 3 sets of Chinese herbs that address 3 different aspects of digestion including food stagnation, Phlegm, and Heat.

    Set 1. Chinese herbs that help digestion and remove food residues. These include Hawthorn (Shan Zha), Medicated Leaven (Shen Qu), Radish Seed (Lai Fu Zi), and Barley Sprout (Mai Ya). Hawthorn is a well known Chinese herb that breaks down meats and fatty food. Medicated Leaven is good at clearing alcoholic food. Radish Seed is good at breaking down carbohydrate foods like rice and bread. Radish Seed also eliminates gas. Barley Sprout helps digest milk products.

    Set 2. Chinese herbs that remove phlegm. In TCM, food stagnation will cause accumulation of phlegm or unwanted metabolic byproducts. So it is also necessary to clear away phlegm and damp. This is achieved by Zhi Ban Xia (Processed Pinellia) and Chen Pi (Tangerine peel), two major Chinese herbs that expel phlegm. Moreover, Fu Ling (Poria) is added to remove Dampness as well as strengthen the digestive function.

    Set 3. Chinese herbs that clears heat. In TCM, food stagnation also generates heat, which is why it is associated with a burning sensation. For this reason, Forsythia (Lian Qiao) is included in the Bao He Pian formula. Forsythia is a major Chinese herb that clears heat.

    Bao He Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for promoting digestion, removing food stagnation, and harmonizing the stomach. It is used for food stagnation marked by distending fullness and discomforts in the epigastric region, belching, acid reflux, loss of appetite, vomiting, loose stool, thick and greasy fur on the tongue, and a slippery pulse.

    Bao He Pian is suitable for children and infants for occasional food stagnation and the resulting loose stool, vomiting, milk throw up, and loss of appetite.
