    What does it do?

    LiverSoothe™ is appropriate for the TCM conditions in which liver Qi is suppressed. When the liver Qi is unable to course freely, heat signs develop and move upward.

    Primary signs of liver suppression with heat and stasis include short temper, stomach discomfort, rib-side discomfort, fullness of the chest, and a bitter taste in the mouth. The tongue will be red, especially on the sides and there may be a yellow coating. The pulse will be rapid and wiry.

    This is a modern Chinese formulation based on the classical formula Jin Ling Zi San. Shu Gan Wan is more focused on alleviating discomfort.

    Shu Gan Pian (LiverSoothe™) is composed of twelve medicinal herbs which course the liver Qi, move blood, clear heat and harmonize the stomach.

    Chuan Lian Zi (Sichuan Chinaberry fruit) is an important Qi regulating herb. Here, it is paired with Yan Hu Suo (Cordyalis) and Xiang Fu (Cyperus rhizome), both of which are also effective Qi moving herbs. This combination is especially effective for relieving rib-side abdominal discomfort resulting from Qi suppression. Xiang Fu has been studied in particular for the use of gastrointestinal discomforts due to Qi stagnation. Bai Shao (white Peony) is included to soften the liver and also relax muscles.

    Mu Xiang (Aucklandia root), Hou Po (Magnolia cortex) and Sha Ren (Cardamon seed) are combined with Xiang Fu here to harmonize the liver and stomach and restore appetite. Dou Kou Ren (Amomum seed), in conjunction with Sha Ren and Hou Po dissolves dampness and strengthens the stomach. Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) and Fu Ling (Poria) further help to eliminate dampness, strengthen the middle and promote proper movement of Qi.

    Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange fruit) and Pian Jiang Huang (Curcuma wenyujin) move Qi and blood.

    LiverSoothe™ (Shu Gan Pian) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't do without it. I've been using this remedy for a number of years now. In the years since I had gastric bypass surgery I have developed some stomach problems, the one that bothers me most is in the evening if I have supper too late, my stomach just shuts down and won't digest. This is very painful. I used to just take this for nausea, then found that it actually makes my stomach empty out. It usually takes just 15 minutes. Really amazing! I keep some in the house at all times because I never know when I'll need it. Oh, it's helpful for nausea, too. I highly recommend it.
