(DigestVive Plus™)

Zi Sheng Wan (Pian) Product Details
What does it do?
A robust digestion function ensures the body to obtain sufficient nutrients and depends on, in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the function of the Spleen. The Spleen in TCM does not correspond to today's anatomical spleen and serves as an indicator of digestion function. When the Spleen function is weak, one has a poor digestion function, absorption and transportation of nutrients is affected, causing pale face, low energy, poor appetite, loose stool etc.

Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan (Pian) (DigestVive) is a primary Chinese medicine that nourishes the Spleen and thus enhances the digestive function. In addition, Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan has the function of removing dampness from the digestive system. Dampness is a common problem resulting from a weakened Spleen function as fluids and indigested food residues get accumulated in the digestive track and is typically manifested as diarrhea.

The action of Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan is achieved by a set of Chinese herbs that have the property of nourishing the Spleen and draining Dampness. Among them, Ginseng or Codonopsis replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen; Atractylodes is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and dries Dampness; Poria acts mainly to remove Dampness but it also strengthens the Spleen; Licorice tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs; (These 4 herbs by themselves consist of the well known Si Jun Zi Tang.) Chinese Yam (Shan Yao) and Lotus Seed (Lian Zi) act to both tonify the Spleen and stop diarrhea; Coix Seed (Yi Yi Ren) and Hyacinth Bean (Bai Bian Dou) strengthen the Spleen and drain dampness; Cardamon Seed (Sha Ren) transforms dampness and promotes the Qi movement to alleviate the distension.

Zi Sheng Wan is formed from Shen Ling Bai Zhu Wan by inclusion of additional Chinese herbs that assist digestion and remove food stagnation and Dampness. These include Hawthorn, a well known Chinese herb that digests meats and fatty food, Barley Sprout for digesting milk products, Coptidis for clearing damp heat in the stomach due to food stagnation, Agastache (Huo Xiong) for drying dampness and stopping vomiting.

In summary, Zi Sheng Wan is a Chinese herbal digestion supplement that is completed with multiple functions, ranging from invigorating digestion function, removing food indigestion, to stopping diarrhea. When it is taken regularly, it helps keep digestion strong and life vigorous. In this sense, Zi Sheng Wan is named as "Nurture Life Pills".
