    What does it do?

    Shen Qi Da Bu Pian (Wan) constitutes only two Chinese herbs, Dang Shen (Codonopsis root) and Huang Qi (Astragalus root). Both of them are major Chinese herbs that promote Qi in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Qi, literally "air" or "breath", is a vital energy flowing around the body that gives it the strength in function. The nature of Qi is yet to be revealed in modern biomedical terms. However, one may roughly relate more Qi to longer physical endurance, e. g., being able to work or exercise for a longer time without feeling tired.

    Codonopsis (Dang Shen) is well known for replenishing Qi and is often used as a Ginseng substitute for its similar action to Ginseng or its affordability. Codonopsis strengthens the Spleen, a replenishing source of Qi energy after birth, and tonifies the Lungs, also a Qi source. Moreover, Codonopsis generates Fluids and tonifies the Blood. Its applications include fatigue, tiredness, short of breath, and loss of appetite etc. Modern studies have found that Codonopsis extracts have a protective effect on the formation of peptic ulcers induced by stress and inhibit the secretion of pepsin in the stomach.1 Codonopsis is also reported to strengthen the immune function and increase the count of red blood cells and the level of hemoglobin.

    Astragalus (Huang Qi) is one of the most commonly used Chinese tonic herbs. It enhances Qi and strengthens the defensive line of the body against the invasion of external pathogenic factors. Astragalus also promotes urination to reduce edema and generates muscles. Astragalus has a synergistic action with Codonopsis in raising Qi energy in case of fatigue and weak Qi. In consistent with its role in TCM in protecting the body from disease, studies have found that Astragalus may stimulate the immune function in several ways.2

    The combination of Codonopsis and Astragalus can be used as a general tonic to build up the physical strength and the immune function. It is especially good for those who easily get tired after some activity at work, home, or outdoors, have pale face, are lack of interest in doing things or talking, lack of appetite, or easily catch cold/flu. As the formula is simple and both herbs have excellent safety profiles, it is also ideal to start it as adaptogen for those who have not used Chinese herbs before or have concerns about taking Chinese herbs.
