    What does it do?

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of exogenous pathogenic factors like Wind and Cold. The Wind and Cold attack first invades the surface and the body responds with a quick onset of symptoms such as alternating chills and fever, headache, muscle stiffness, sneezing, cough, nasal congestion, runny nose.

    In this Wind-Cold type invasion, sore throat is not evident but chills and head stiffness are the most differentiating signs. Aversion to cold occurs even when the room temperature has changed a little. One then feels the need to put on more clothes or raise the room temperature higher. Ge Gen Tang induces sweating to release the exterior symptoms and dispel Wind-Cold. Ge Gen (Pueraria or Kudzu root) is the chief Chinese herb in the formula and acts to dispel Wind-Cold, relax muscles and generate fluids. Gui Zhi (Ramulus Cinnamomi) helps dispel Wind-Cold and promote sweating. Bai Shao (Paeoniae Alba) and Gan Cao (Licorice) also help generate fluids and relieve discomfort. Sheng Jiang (Ginger) and Da Zao (Jujubae fruit) harmonize the spleen and the stomach and support the Qi energy. Qiang Huo (Notopterygium root) and Du Huo (Angelica Pubescens) are warm and bitter, work together to expel wind, and remove dampness.

    Does research support Kudzu Relaxe?

    In a research, Dr. Sewell from Yale University studied the use of Kudzu among a group that experienced frequent discomfort in one side of the head. The study found that Kudzu may cut the frequency, severity, and duration of discomfort.1 The response is correlated to the dose taken each day with the lowest dose least responsive.

    Kudzu Relaxe™ (Ge Gen Tang Pian) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A few days ago, I started to feel some sore throat A few days ago, I started to feel some sore throat, as other family members just had the cold/flu, I know I am having it too. I took Yin Qiao Jie Du Pian. The symptom quickly proceeded to running nose, nasal congestion and little headache. Yin Qiao controled the symptoms. Within a day, suddenly I started to feel chills and headache gets heavier. I have to wear more clothes and put on heavier blankets at night. At this point, it became clear that I have a wind-cold type of flu. I started to take Ren Shen Bai Du Pian (at 5 tablets, 400 mg/tab) and Ge Gen Tang Pian (at 10 tablets, 200 mg/tab) together. Within an hour, I feel much better. I repeated the combination or either one of the two for 4 times a day. I did not take any OTC cold medicine. To my surprise, within 2 days my symptoms are mostly cleared. I continued to take either Ge Gen Tang Pian at 8 tablets or Ren Shen Bai Du Pian at 4 tablets three times daily for a few more days. I am now completely recovered.</p><p>Just for a comparison, in the past, whenever I catched a flu like this, it took at least a week to have running nose and congestion controlled even under Tylenol. After that, coughing started and lasted for about 1 month. Not at this time. Thanks for the right Guang Ci Tang herbal remedies, I did not have cough and I am completely fine within a week. I am so happy and strongly recommend these remedies to everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have cold medicine Kudzu Relaxe is so effective in expelling wind-cold type cold which happens frequently in the winter. Whenever I feel getting sick with neck stiffness, sore muscle, a little sore throat or nasal congestion, I immediately take this formula according to the recommended dosage three times a day and get a good night sleep. Mostly the next day I am recovered completely without any symptom. Even when times I didn’t take early enough and the cold had proceeded, and I have symptoms like dripping nose, aversion to cold, taking Kudzu Relaxe full dosage three times a day would usually resolve the cold within three days. My kids also take it with reduced dosages and they also notice the difference when not taking it. I have recommended Kudzu Relaxe to many friends and they are all so thankful that such cold medicine is available. Hope my review will help more people to suffer less during cold or flu season.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure yet I bought this along with other cold medicines. My cold changed quickly from being a hot wind type to feeling overly cold in my body. That's when i started using Kudzu Relax. I sweated, but only after taking it for the 1st time, afterwards i didnt feel any sweating action. I noticed, that my sore throat is still sore and am not sure whether Im taking the right herb for this, I tried connecting with Active Herb through email regarding this, but nobody responded to me so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wind Cold Remedy When REN SHEN BAI DU WAN was discontinued, ACTIVEHERB's excellent website indicated that GE GEN TANG would be an appropriate substitution. It is! I recommend this to all sufferers of Wind Cold.
