What is it?:
This product is a liquid extract of the roots of a plant commonly known as white atractylodes (or Bai zhu in pinyin Chinese). It comes in a small glass bottle (dropper included) so you can add small amounts to a cup of water and drink it down-- very easy and convenient.
What is it good for:
- shortness of breath
- poor appetite/decreased food intake
- loose, watery stools
Traditional Chinese medicine benefits:
- tonifies Spleen qi
- drains dampness from the middle
- eliminates water accumulation (caused by Spleen qi def.)
- strengthens wei (defensive) qi and stops spontaneous sweating to qi deficiency.
What else you might like to know:
This is a good addition to a supplement regimen if you have sluggish digestion to the point of being fatigued and are experiencing water retention and/or loose watery stools. Usually this herb is used in formula, but it is also great as a single herb to boost the body's ability to deal with problems caused by chronic water retention, whether in the chest, abdomen, or large intestines.
It is important to understand that Chinese herbs work by restoring balance to the body. This means that you usually have to take an herb or a formula for a longer period of time than you would with pharmaceuticals in order to get results-- usually at least a month, and often times longer than that... it all depends on the individual and the nature of the ailment being addressed.
