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 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 Certainly seems to be working for me! My hectic schedule & very little sleep comprises my immune system, which results in me having a bad cold (and often bronchitis) every year for about the past 6 years. So far this flu season, I’ve remained healthy (and I did not get a flu shot).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sold immune system defense Having a compromised immune system, I've used Jade Defender for a number of years, typically during cold and flu season. However, because our work requires international travel, my wife and I have been using Jade Defender 2x every day, once at at bedtime and once as soon as we awake since early 2020. The 3 simple ingredients in Jade Defender create one of the strongest immune system defenses known, you can research the centuries-old recipe and verify that. Personally, I strongly urge the use of Jade Defender for anyone these days, especially during cold and flu season, but there are many reasons to not wait because it's a solid defense that works best when you use it before you need it! Why I recommend Guang Ci Tang is because the herbs are certified, inspected, and of the highest potency you can find, and at a great value. You can find this same formula in many places, but the quality will not compare and you'll pay more elsewhere.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a unique, excellent product !!! I have been taking for around 10 years YU PING FENG SAN in wintertime, whenever I feel to get a flue - it works immediately, it's uncomparable and incredible! Thank you!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product! My health went down greatly last year to a point that I easily catch a cold even with a mild drop in tempearature. I was hoping this product would help me boost my immune system. After taking the tablets for a month, I can tell I feel better and was less likely to catch a cold. However, since my health was so so bad at that time, the dose of this product seemed to be a bit weak to me. I wish ActiveHerb would make their granule version of this available cause I tried their granule version before and I can tell it is stronger. Anyway, good product!

    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 .
