    What does it do?

    Strengthens The Body's Defensive Qi

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, our body is vulnerable to the attacks of external evils such as Wind, Cold, Damp, and Heat etc. These attacks occur from the surface our body is exposed to: mouth, nose, or skin.

    Not surprising, our body has the natural ability of defending itself from such attacks. TCM calls this line of defense as "Wei Qi" or defensive Qi energy. The outcome of any evil attack will depend on the balance in the fight of Wei Qi and evils.

    Yu Ping Feng San, an ancient herbal formula in the annals of TCM, is well known in TCM for reinforcing the body's surface and strengthening the defensive Qi. Yu Ping Feng literally means Jade Screen. Just think of a solid screen at doorway that shields wind from blowing into the room.

    How Does JadeDefender Work?

    JadeDefender supports Wei Qi by keeping the skin's sweat pores closed. This is an important element of immune support because the sweat pores are the entry portals for external evils. (If you sweat often, and for no good reason, i.e. when the weather is not hot, this could be an indication your Wei Qi is weak and needs to be fortified with Jade Defender.)

    JadeDefender is one of the most basic formulas in TCM, consisting of just three herbs, yet they are potent for building Wei Qi.

    Huang Qi (Astragalus root) halts Wind from penetrating deep into the muscle tissue by enhancing the grain of the skin and the texture of the subcutaneous flesh. Astragalus also nourishes Qi. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome) tonifies spleen function. This action supports immune function by strengthening digestive function and building Qi and vital fluids such as Blood. Astragalus works with Bai Zhu to strengthen Qi and act as an astringent (stops sweating). Fang Feng (Siler root) disperses wind and dampness from the body.

    Yu Ping Feng Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia to tonify Qi (vital energy), consolidate the body's external surface, and stop perspiration. It is applicable when the body manifests susceptibility to Wind evils, spontaneous sweating, and pale complexion.

    Does research support JadeDefender?

    Studies suggested that Yu Ping Feng San may support the immune function.

    JadeDefender™ (Yu Ping Feng Pian) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product works incredibly well for me I have suffered from seasonal hay fever for many year and tried many different remedies. My acupuncturist recommended Jade Defender to me and advised that I take a small amount (5 pills) every day all year long. When hay fever season begins, I up the dose a bit. (8 pills once a day, twice if needed). This had proven to be the best herbal remedy for hay fever I have every used. I also have not had a cold or the flu since I've been taking this. I do have to take Claritin too during hay fever season, but if I wasn't taking Jade Defender, my symptoms would be much worse!! I can actually be outside now during the season and only sneeze once in awhile. Before I started Jade Defender, my symptoms were so awful, I could hardly be outside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jade defender & Nasel AllergiClear My son has suffered from seasonal allergies since he was 3 years old. We started shots at 5 years old. He stopped shots fall of 2013. He went 1 1/2 allergy free. February 2015 his allergies were back. He is allergic to pollen, trees, and grass. The Active herbs are the only thing that helps. He is 12 years old and can play baseball without his eyes bothering him. They still get a little red but they used to sting and burn when he was outside. So happy my accupucture recommended active herb for his allergies. Also, took 4 days to notice a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIfe saver I discovered jade defender last year when I was trying to find natural remedies to help with my chronic winter cold/ pneumonia/ allergies. I moved to Oregon six years ago and I have been deadly ill every winter. I stumbled on this product and decided to give it a try. I started it in the summer of last year and did not get ill once the entire year! Not one cough and it used to be really bad! My husband makes fun of me and my Chinese medicines but hey it works it really does! At least for me. Thank you!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Force Field For many years I had easily caught colds, felt cold and sneezed at the slightest touch of cold water on my feet. After taking this for a couple weeks, these things disappeared completely. I could walk in the cold with my top off (not recommended) and feel comfortable and warm in a cold house (normally I would have to have the heating up to the maximum to feel good). I now feel like I have a forcefield around my body. After taking this I also get softer and more nourished skin. This formula was made for me! God bless you all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defense and Healing! I started using this product as a means of defense for colds and flu and later found out that it is often used for seasonal allergies. I have suffered from allergies for two decades. Jade Defender, along with daily Qigong practice, has all but healed me of my allergies. I take one dose (5 tablets) a day year round but increase it to two doses before and during allergy season. It works! I experience barely any allergies symptoms, if at all. In addition, I usually avoid most of the colds each year and can't remember the last time I had the flu. Jade Defender is great for defense and healing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great preventative during cold & flu season JadeDefender is a great preventative during cold & flue season. I start taking it when I start to feel a bit run down or when everyone I know starts catching a cold. It works great. If you are prone to catching a lot of colds then this is the formula for you. This can also be used as a tonic when you're starting to feel better, or when your symptoms keep dragging on. JadeDefender is supposed to fortify the qi or energy on the outside of your body to keep pathogens from getting in. Who couldn't use more of that, right? Thank you ActiveHerb. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product My acupuncturist recommended this herbal formula to me to deal with spring hay fever. I take 4 pills everyday during the non-allergy months and then up the dose to 6 when Spring arrives. At the worst, I may take 6 twice a day. It has made a HUGE difference for me. I can actually be outside and not be sneezing and blowing my nose constantly. Additionally, I have not had one cold this year either when many around me have had them.

    Product Q&A

    What is the difference between the tablet and pills? Is there any difference in effectiveness or ingredients?  I notice that only some products have both forms, and most of your products are tablet.

    Asked by: Jira2
    Thanks for the question. Both Wan and Pian are the same in ingredients and formulation but differ in shapes. Pian has an advantage of easy dissolution. Please see more discussion at .
