    What does it do?

    A harmonious digestive function requires a balanced action of food intake, food digestion, and waste discharge from the digestive tract. When bowel movements slow down, intestine contents get harder to pass through the intestinal canal and will accumulate, causing fullness and distention of the chest and abdomen and constipation. If this happens, it is when Boweflow may help.

    Boweflow is a respected ancient formula designed for conditions of abdominal distention and pain along with difficulty in passing stools. From the perspective of TCM, when food residues accumulate in the intestines, the flow of Qi (gas) in the tract is impaired, resulting in abdominal swelling and pain, gas accumulation (fart), heat accumulation, and dry stools. Fitting with this pattern of conditions are a yellow tongue coating and a rapid, slippery pulse. Bowel obstruction (intestinal obstruction) may fall in the pattern. Some IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) may also belong to the same pattern.

    Boweflow acts to moderately drain heat and accumulation downward and thus remove distention. For this reason, the formula got its Chinese name Xiao Cheng Qi Tang as Xiao means mild, Cheng means pass, Qi means gas, Tang means decoction. Xiao Cheng Qi Tang is originally composed of only 3 Chinese herbs: rhubarb, magnolia bark, and immature bitter orange. It is derived from Da Cheng Qi Tang, which additionally contains Mang Xiao (mirabilite) and has a stronger purgative effect.

    Boweflow, our version of Xiao Cheng Qi Tang, is modified from the original 3 herb formula with the inclusion of 4 additional Chinese herbs. The modification adds poria and licorice to enhance the digestive function, hawthorn to help food breakdown, and tangerine peel to assist in relieving distention. Da Huang (Rhubarb root) is the chief herb in the formula. It drains fire and removes toxins. The Chinese herb moistens intestines to relieve constipation.

    Hou Po (Magnolia bark) regulates Qi downward to resolve chest fullness. The Chinese herb also dries dampness and transforms phlegm.

    Zhi Shi (Immature bitter orange) breaks up Qi stagnation and removes food retention and abdominal distention. Bitter orange is often used for weight loss as well.

    Fu Ling (Poria) is an important herb for strengthening the digestive function. It also removes dampness.

    Shan Zha (Hawthorn berries) is a well known Chinese herb that assists digestion. Hawthorn is also known for reducing blood lipids and weight in TCM.

    Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) moves Qi and strengthens digestion, expels dampness and transforms phlegm. It is often used for distention.

    Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and moderates the action of the other herbs.
