    What does it do?
    Nasal congestion is an irritation and swelling of the nose. It is caused by airborne allergens, virus, or bacteria which trigger the release of histamine. Histamine opens the blood vessels, causes swollen membranes, and produce excessive fluids. Nasal congestion is often associated with the cold.

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), nasal congestion is due to the insufficiency of Qi (Chi) energy of the lung and the subsequently reduced protection of the respiratory tract from pathogenic attacks called Wind evils. Bi Yan Pian combines multiple Chinese herbs that work in several different ways to help relieve nasal congestion. It disperses wind and expels toxins. Moreover, it dissolves phlegm (especially nasal mucus), clears discharge and thus opens the nasal passages.

    Bi Yan Pian works most effectively with acute occurrence of nasal congestion. It usually clears the nasal passages within 5 days.1 It takes longer for chronic nasal congestion. In a study of 27 cases, 22 were found recovered and the other 5 improved.1

    Bi Yan Pian also works more effectively for sudden onset of sinus congestion than chronic sinus congestion. It usually clears the nasal passages within a week.1 Recovery takes longer for cases of chronic sinus congestion. In a study of 91 sinus congestion cases, 61 out of 66 acute sinus congestion were recovered (the remaining 5 showed improvement) whereas 5 out of 25 chronic sinus congestion were recovered (the remaining 20 improved).1

    How do I use it?
    The standard dosage for Nasopass™ is 6 tablets each time, 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.

    Nasopass™ 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I shared this and now I'm there hero! I gave a bottle of Bi Tan Pian to 3 friends that were having allergy and sinus problems. Each one of them loved the product and will be ordering their next bottles in a month. I have tried this product years ago from another company that I could not find, so I did a search and found ActiveHerb and now, I will be a regular customer for life. The prices are great! I live in Dallas and will be sharing your website.
