    What does it do?

    Xiang Lian Pian (Wan) consists of only two Chinese herbs, Huang Lian (Coptis chinensis rhizome) and Mu Xiang (Costus root). Coptis is a well known Chinese herb that clears heat and dries dampness in the digestive track in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It also purges fire and removes toxins. Coptis is yellow in color, very bitter in taste, and cold in property. Extensive biomedical studies have been conducted to reveal the medicinal properties of Coptis. Most of the action of Coptis is attributed to its main ingredient called Huang Lian Su or Berberine.

    Berberine is an alkaloid mostly abundant in Coptis chinensis and has a significant antimicrobial activity. It inhibits the growth of bacteria like Bacillus dysentery or Shigella, Salmonella, and Escherichia coli, which are the common cause of bacterial dysentery. In China, Berberine as a single reagent itself is an established treatment for bacterial diarrhea. Recently, Studies have found that Berberine has many other health benefits. For example, Berberine effectively lowers blood total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides through a mechanism different from the commonly used statins;1 lowers blood glucose as good as metformin;2 suppresses the growth of many types of tumor cells.3

    Costus root, the other herb in Xiang Lian Pian (Wan), is a famous Chinese herb that moves Qi energy and alleviates pain in the gastrointestinal track caused by the stagnant Qi.

    Xiang Lian Wan clears away heat and eliminates dampness, and promotes Qi flow to relieve pain. The Chinese herb is best used for dysentery or acute enteritis caused by ingestion of food contaminated by bacteria or virus as marked by tenesmus, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. We suggest to take one bottle Xiang Lian Wan with you when you travel to developing countries or rural areas or wherever food contamination is a concern.
