    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 retention, along with belching, burping and gas.

    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 support digestion and remove food residues. These include Shan Zha (Hawthorn), Shen Qu (Medicated Leaven), Lai Fu Zi (Radish Seed), and Mai Ya (Barley Sprout). 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 Shi (Immature Bitter Orange) and Chen Pi (Tangerine peel), two Chinese herbs that expel phlegm. The latter also breaks up accumulation. Moreover, Fu Ling (Poria) is added to remove Dampness and strengthen the digestive function at the same time.

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

    At a true 5:1 concentration, this product represents the most potent form of Bao He Pian (Wan) on the market. One tablet is equal to 1 gram of raw herb.

    Please note that Guang Ci Tang® Bao He Wan in the pill form, which has the same formulation as the tablet, is discontinued.

    Bao He Pian tablets are made with all natural herbs that are tested for authenticity, quality, and potency. A traditional water decoction is prepared with the herbs to reproduce the time-tested action of the formula, and this water decoction is concentrated with our proprietary technology to form a potent extract that is made into easily absorbed tablets, which are remarkably effective, easy to use, and safe.

    Please note that our tablets may appear neutral in finishing and a little brittle. You may observe a tiny bit of fine powder at the bottom of your bottle and occasionally one or a couple of broken tablets after transportation. This is because unlike other manufacturers, our tablets are not coated as part of our effort to minimize the use of excipients and to make them as pure as possible. These tablets can also be easily dissolved in hot water to serve as tea.

    EzDigest™ (Bao He Pian) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stomach back to Normal! Wonderful product. I took it three times a day with meals and I could eat normally. I had been very ill with stomach issues and could not eat and lost 17 pounds in few months. This product along with a live probiotic turned the tide to good health. I will continue it for quite some time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful I've used other digestive aids, one worked pretty well for a long time. It wasn't doing a good job anymore. EzDigest is really working well for me. Haven't figured out exact amount to take yet. Taking one every time I eat appeares to be doing the trick. What I find amazing is my nose isn't stuffy any more either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Resolved My Long Time Digestion Issues! I bought this originally to deal with occasional stomach ache and gas and it is outstanding in that role. For many years I have lived with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the diarrhea variety. Even with carefully regulating what and how much I eat and using several probiotics, I regularly would have very soft loose stool once a day. I started taking EzDigest three times a day for gas, and noticed that I no longer have daily bouts of diarrhea. I don't take full doses, as I am hypersensitive, but it is working wonderfully. I recommend it to anyone who has gastro-intestinal problems!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I purchased one bottle and used this with Jian Pi Pian for my symptoms ie indigestion, bloating after meals, watery stools, feeling full quickly. It made such a difference after 2 bottles of Jian pi pian and 1 bottle of bao he pian. Thank you

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for the elderly I got EZDigest for my mom who is 74 years old. After ordering, I saw that the elderly should not take it LONG TERM. Not knowing what was meant by "long-term", I sent an email to Active Herb and asked them. They kindly answered that by long term they mean 2 months. My mom is fighting a mild form of GERD and she would need to find a product that she can take for as long as she may need. As a result, we decided not to use it any more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed my life I come from a family with many health problems including intestinal issues. Let's just say now having bowel movements like a normal person for the first time in my life is amazing. I've tried a lot growing up to help these problems and for this to work has been life changing.
