    What does it do?

    Helps 'cool your engine' and keep your emotions in check

    Do you easily get angry or irritable? If someone cuts you off in traffic, do you pound on your horn and shout at the other driver - even if the driver can't hear you? Perhaps you even get angry from time to time for seemingly no reason. You're not sure why you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, but there's a palpable tension in the air. Though you might not be able to explain it, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) may offer some theories to determine the root cause of how you're feeling….

    From a TCM perspective, frequent fits of anger and irritability are caused by excessive fire in the Liver. In TCM theory, the Liver is the seat of all emotions. Resentment, jealousy and other emotional states that don't serve your best interests are rooted in the Liver. The Liver also plays a critical role in regulating the flow of Qi (the universal life force). If you have excess heat in the Liver, your Qi flow will suffer and stagnate, producing a cascade of negative emotions.

    If you eat greasy or fried foods frequently, this may also be a root cause of excess Liver fire. Excess fire in the Liver can manifest as a variety of unpleasant symptoms including: headache; red eyes; bitter taste in the mouth; irritability and short temper; hypochondriac pain; reddish tongue with yellowish greasy fur; wiry, rapid, and forceful pulse;

    Classic formula for clearing Fire from the Liver and Gallbladder

    The good news is there's a simple solution for clearing excess heat from the Liver. It's our all-natural TCM liver formula called Liver FireClear™, aka Long Dan Xie Gan Tang. This is a classic herbal remedy that can, in western parlance, "cool your engine."

    Using a western analogy, think of the Liver as the engine in your car. If the oil in your car is clean and at optimal level, your engine will run smooth. But if you pour the wrong type of fuel in your engine, the gas (the "qi" that makes the car drive) will burn up too quickly and the engine oil (the "blood" that lubricates the engine) will overheat.

    Liver FireClear™, when taken over time (allow a few weeks to notice positive outcomes), may help to cool your engine.

    And if you're concerned about the possibility of liver damage from aristolochic acid, which is a byproduct of the herb, Guan Mu Tong, in the original Long Dan Xie Gan Tang recipe, there's no need to worry. Our formulation does not include this herb.

    Classic formula for draining Damp Heat from the Liver channel

    Another TCM pattern Liver FireClear™ takes care of is the damp-heat from the Liver channel in the lower burner, or the lower part of the body. This damp-heat pattern is typically shown as genital swelling, itching and/or discharge with odor; turbid urination with pain or heat sensation; reddish tongue with yellowish greasy fur; wiry, rapid, and forceful pulse;

    How does Liver FireClear™ Work?

    The Chinese namesake of this formula is Long Dan Cao (Chinese Gentian Root, Gentiana). This herb is bitter and cold. It both clears ascending Liver fire and drains damp-heat from the Liver and Gallbladder channels.

    Huang Qin (Baical Skullcap Root, Scutellaria) and Zhi Zi (Cape Jasmine Fruit, Gardenia) are also bitter and cold. They drain fire and clear heat and dampness, thus act synergistically with Long Dan Cao.

    Ze Xie (Water Plantain Root), Tong Cao (Rice Paper Pith), and Che Qian Zi (Plantago Seeds) clear heat, leach out dampness, and move damp-heat downward elimination from the body through urination.

    Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia) clears heat, cools the blood, nourishes Yin, and generates fluids. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) nourishes Blood. Together they protect Yin and Blood from being damaged by the draining herbs above.

    Chai Hu (Thorowax Root, Bupleurum) disperses Liver Qi and clears heat. The Chinese herb guides the other herbs to act in the Liver channel. And finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) harmonizes the action of all other herbs in the formula.

    Does Research Support Liver FireClear™?

    In a review of herbal Chinese medicine for liver health that involved over 90,000 subjects, Long Dan Xie Gan Tang was the most commonly prescribed remedy, according to the researchers.1 Another study analyzed Long Dan Xie Gan Tang's efficacy for treating chronic hepatitis B. The researchers concluded that it exhibits "significant anti-hepatitis B virus activities with improved liver function, and enhanced HBeAg and HBsAg sero-conversion rates as well as HBV DNA clearance rates in patients."2 Along with acupuncture and moxibustion, the classic TCM formula for Liver FireClear™ helped alleviate chronic pelvic inflammation.3

    Reviews
    Liver FireClear™ (Long Dan Xie Gan Pian) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Helpful I used this formula when for some reason I've got symptoms of bitterness in my mouth during eating and early in the morning. These symptoms in TCM are typically associated with Gall Bladder / Liver disbalance. The symptoms persisted about a week but on the next day after I started taking this formula I started feeling better. In about 3-4 days the symptoms were completely gone but I took the tablets for about two weeks to ensure the balance became stable.Now it 's already 3 weeks after I finished and everything looks good. Make sure to consult your doctor prior to using this formula.
