    What does it do?

    A robust digestion function is crucial for the body to obtain sufficient nutrients and, in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), depends critically on the function of the Spleen. (Please note that the Spleen in TCM does not correspond to today's anatomical spleen but is rather a digestion functional concept.) The Spleen is in charge of absorbing and transporting the nutrients from digestion around the body and transforming them into the Yin, Yang, and Qi energy etc, the fundamental elements in regulating our overall body functions. When the Spleen function is weak, adsorption and transportation of nutrients is affected, causing pale face, low energy, poor appetite, loose stool etc.

    A major function of Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan is to nourish the Spleen and thus support healthy digestion. This is mostly achieved by including Si Jun Zi Tang (Four Gentlemen Decoction) in the formula. Si Jun Zi Tang itself is the basic Chinese herbal formula that supports Spleen Qi and consists of four Chinese herbs, Ren Shen (Ginseng)or Dang Shen (Codonopsis), Bai Zhu (Atractylodes), Fu Ling (Poria), and Gan Cao Yao (Licorice). Among them, Ginseng replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen; Atractylodes is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and dries Dampness; Poria acts mainly to remove Dampness but it also strengthens the Spleen; Licorice tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.

    Another main function of Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan is to remove dampness in the Spleen and the Stomach. This function is important because one causal effect of a weakened Spleen transforming function is the accumulation of fluids, which then transform into dampness in the digestive system and causes distension and loose stool. To this end, other Chinese herbs are included in Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan. Of them, Shan Yao (Chinese Yam) and Lian Zi (Lotus Seed) act to both tonify the Spleen and stop loose stool; Yi Yi Ren (Coix Seed) and Bai Bian Dou (Hyacinth Bean) strengthen the Spleen and drain dampness; Sha Ren (Cardamon Seed) transforms dampness and promotes the Qi movement to alleviate the distension.

    Shen Ling Bai Zhu Pian may be applied to reduce temporary water-weight gain. In the theory of TCM, overweight is mostly gained by the accumulation of Dampness and Phlegm which may result from the poor function of the Spleen. It is most suitable for those who sit most of the time in the office or on a sofa, are tired of moving or exercising, and/or have loose skin and soft muscles.

    How do I use it?

    Take 6 tablets or pills each time, 2 to 3 times daily. One bottle lasts users about 11 to 16 days.

    The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., with heavy body weight).

    As the herbal formula is a mild tonic, results may only be noticeable after 1 month. It is suggested to take 4 to 6 bottles in full dose as the first regimen. The dose may then be reduced.

    1. For best results, avoid drinking tea and taking carrot.
    2. For best results, avoid taking it together with Chinese cold medicine.
    3. Not suitable for diarrhea associated with constipation.
    4. Consult your herbalist or physician before use if you have hypertension, diabetes, diseases of heart or kidney, or in pregnancy.
    5. Consult your herbalist or physician before use if you are taking other medicines.
    6. Keep out of reach of children.

    DigestVive™ (Shen Ling Bai Zhu Pian) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It seems to work After reading a review of this medication at your site, I figured that I would try it, out of desperation. Due to my hypothyroidism I have gained over 25 pounds, even with exercising, medication and moderation with my diet. So far I have lost 1.5 lbs after one month, a small victory! I will continue with this medication with my fingers crossed for long term weight loss.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hopeful! My elderly Mother has chronic diarrhea - both due to damaged gut and because she takes 10 medications (most of which list diarrhea as a side effect) for Atrial Fibrillation, High Blood Pressure and Venous Insufficiency (sluggish valves in her legs which means fluid retention). We are always trying to find a way to stop the diarrhea so decided to try these herbs - Progress is slow and we weren't sure of the effect until we finished the first bottle and didn't have another one on hand. Diarrhea was immediately worse. Ordered more and day 1 of taking 18 pills a day (divided by 4 doses=3, 5, 5, 5), the diarrhea is some better. We will continue on the maximum dose and are hopeful that this will be an aid to her overall health. I am monitoring her blood pressure and pulse carefully, watching for any indication that these herbs are interfering with her heart and blood pressure meds or causing her other health problems to worsen. So far, so good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! It works, plain and simple. Results are more thorough when you incorporate Qi Gong for the specific organ. Interesting to note that all things have a vibration. This herbal combination vibrates on the same frequency as the stomach system to balance its energies. Good Luck and Peace!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has the promised effect The product keeps its promises. However, what is important is that you have your precise diagnosis by a TCM practitioner. Would I recommend this product a friend? Only if he has the same condition. Chinese herbs can have side effects if you don't know what you are doing.
