What does it do?

In the joints, cartilage normally protects the joints, absorbs shock from movement and allows the joints to move smoothly. Cartilage may wear away as a result of aging, overuse, or other reasons. Without the normal amount of cartilage, bones may rub together and cause discomfort and stiffness in the joint area.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), these joint complaints are referred as "Bi Zheng" or obstruction syndrome, which can be caused and/or aggravated by Wind, Cold, Damp or Heat. It may also be caused or aggravated by Blood stagnation. Feng Shi Xiao Tong Pian is a warming formula best used in cases of Wind-Cold-Damp type obstruction syndrome which is further complicated by Blood stagnation. This herbal formula disperses Wind, Cold and Damp, moves the Blood, and strengthens the sinews and bones. Possible applications include joint stiffness, lower back soreness or stiffness, sensation of cold in the joints, difficulty walking, and weakness of the legs.

Feng Shi Xiao Tong Pian is composed of a number of herbs which work together to dispel Wind, Cold and Damp, and strengthen the tendons and bones.

Hai Feng Teng (Kadsura stem) dispels Wind-Damp for Bi Zheng. Mo Yao (Myrrh) and Ru Xiang (Boswellia) are used together to activate Blood and relax the tendons. This pair of herbs is combined here with Niu Xi (Achyranthes) and Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root) to strengthen their effect. Niu Xi tonifies the Kidneys and Liver, strengthens tendons and bones. Dang Gui has the ability to both invigorate and tonify the Blood. Dang Gui is often paired with Gui Zhi (Cinnamon twigs) and Bai Shao (White Peony root) for sensation of cold in the extremities. Bai Shao nourishes the Blood, softens the Liver and relieves numbness and spasms. Gui Zhi is an important guiding herb here used to warm and open the channels as well as disperse Wind-Cold. Mu Gua (Papaya) relaxes the sinews, opens the channels, and relieves stiffness especially when used in combination with Ru Xiang, Mo Yao, Dang Gui and Bai Shao as it is here.

Gui Zhi, Mo Yao and Ru Xiang are best for joints when combined with Qiang Huo (Notopterygium root) and Du Huo (Pubescent Angelica root). Qiang Huo and Du Huo both release the exterior, dispel Cold, and eliminate Dampness. Fang Feng (Siler) is also added to further dispel Wind, Cold and Damp and release the exterior. Qian Nian Jian (Homalomena) dispels Wind and Damp too, but also strengthens the tendons and bones and is good at supporting the joints, particularly when used in combination with Du Huo and Niu Xi as it is here.

Du Zhong (Eucommia bark) is a Yang tonic used to tonify both the Liver and Kidneys, strengthen tendons and bones and support the back and joint functions. Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis) activates Qi and Blood circulation to relieve tension of muscles and nerves. Jiang Huang (Turmeric) also activates Blood circulation and opens the channels. Chi Shao (Red Peony root) modestly clears heat and dispels Blood stasis. A slight degree of heat clearing is useful to balance the effects of the other herbs which are mostly warm in nature. Gan Cao (Licorice root) harmonizes the formula.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I've been taking two bottles of Ezjoint so far, and the stiffness in my hands are relatively reduced. My Chinese doctor said that I should keep taking it at least for three months, then take a break. (since this is a chronic issue) I have faith in Chinese traditional medicine, and I'm so glad that I can find them here, in Active Herb:-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for warming my body I had planned on using it for my husband's joints but ending up using it to keep my body warm when no one else seems to be cold. Results were immediate. Feels great! 20 tablets a day seems a lot. I don't have bad joint problems. So when I'm done, I will try other blood circulators. I'd like advice on this. I have a yin spleen and a fiery liver.

I will continue to try few more bottles and see if my shoulder will also improve.
