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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect choice for what is going on in our today. I am so happy I purchased this item when I did. I was looking for something to boost my immune system during the cold/flu season and felt I had done well. Easy to take, no sour taste, seem to be doing the job. Hope they continue to help keep me healthy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airline Travel Defense I love this herb and I was intending to use it when we went to NM in April but that is now cancelled but I've still used it a lot in the past and I take it 10 days before the trip and during the trip and I have never picked up any bug from flying every time I've used it. Wish I'd known about it the time I did get the cough from the person across the aisle from me coughing the entire flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great defender I am always afraid of wind especially in the winter when I go out to walk. I took 5 each in the morning and evening. After 3 times, when I went out to walk, I can feel the difference. I am not as afraid of wind blowing behind my neck. Also, I went to my brother's house, my eyes are no longer itchy because of his cat. So I think this is definitely working for me.

    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 http://www.activeherb.com/faq/#5 .
