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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for symptoms of thyroid imbalance I have had bouts over the years of symptoms that mimic hypothyroidism; though my blood test ALWAYS show normal I still suffer almost all the side effects - cold extremities, fatigue, unexplained weight gain, constipation, puffy/bloated body, dry skin. After taking 6 pills of DigestVive 2x a day, after a week I noticed my hands and feet didn't feel cold all the time. By the end of the 2 week I found I was sleeping better and my fatigue reduced. I recommend this formula in conjunction with a healthy diet (my herbalist suggested only cooked or steamed foods for a while to help keep out "damp") and exercise. Always follow your practitioner's advice first!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have been having digestive problems for many years. I’ve tried probiotics and other over the counter medications but barely got any better. I had to take probiotics continuously in order to get a better feeling. If I stop, I feel discomfort immediately. I didn’t know what I should do until I came across this DigestVive on ActiveHerb and decided to give it a try. One month after taking it, I can feel the difference. Three months later, I stopped taking it and never have any discomfort feeling about my digestive system. Great product! Definitely worth the money!

    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 5 out of 5 by from Spleen strengthener Strengthens the spleen. If you are struggling with poor digestion and edema especially around the midsection, this may help. I’ve noticed much digestive improvement after taking these. Water weight reduction too

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped me a lot! I was really suffering from digestive issues and this formula helped. After two bottles taking 8 twice a day, I don't need to take them anymore. I will reorder to keep on hand, however. I am satisfied with this product and recommend it for digestive issues with loose stools, chills and general weakness.

    I actually have a slower digestive/colon track so i was looking over all of your digestion aids. I am not sure what one would work best. I know the live, spleen and stomach all work together along with colon.
