This herbal supplement is used for deficiency of both Qi and Blood, marked by pale or sallow complexion and general lack of strength.
Regain strength and stamina
Ever notice how sometimes you just can't seem to fully regain your strength? You're so listless you can barely sustain a conversation, much less climb a flight of stairs. Moreover, when you look in the mirror, you barely recognize the pale face devoid of vibrancy staring back at you. However, you've done plenty of sleeping and your condition has not improved.
It is an herbal traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) remedy that may help you feel normal again. It may tonify both Blood and Qi, thus normalizing bodily functions and supporting energy levels.
Classic Blood and Qi Tonic Formulas in a Combo
Both men and women can benefit from it, especially in the case of the TCM syndrome associated with sallow complexion, shortness of breath, blood deficiency and irregular, heavy menstruation. (Women are more often prone to blood deficiency, especially when heavy menstruation occurs.).
Qi and Blood are fundamental concepts in TCM, required for homeostasis and a long, healthy life. First, Qi is the vital force that controls your body. Qi is nourished by the air you breath and the food you eat (including Chinese herbs). As for blood, which is interconnected with Qi, one of its primary roles is to nourish the body's tissues. However, your body can become deficient in healthy blood production if your Qi is deficient, and thus, your tissues become dry, resulting in not only tiredness, but a pale complexion.
The reason Tonics8 may help is, it's actually two classic, basic formulas rolled into one: Si Wu Tang Pian, a well regarded ancient Chinese medicine used to enrich the Blood and support a normal menstrual cycle, and Si Jun Zi Tang Wan, an equally-revered, centuries-old formula for supplementing Spleen Qi energy and promoting digestion.
How does it work?
In the formula, Dang Shen (Codonopsis Root) tonifies the middle burner, augments Qi, and strengthens the Spleen. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) tonifies the Spleen and augments Qi and dries dampness. Another herb in the formula that leaches out dampness is Fu Ling (Poria), which also strengthens the Spleen.
Another Qi-augmenting and Spleen tonifier is Gan Cao (Licorice Root), which also expels phlegm. The above 4 herbs comprise the the famous Spleen Qi supplementing formula, Si Jun Zi Tang.
The next four herbs make Si Wu Tang, the fundamental Blood tonic. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) is used to nourish and invigorate the Blood, while Bai Shao (White Peony Root) nourishes the blood and regulates menses.
Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Rhizome) invigorates the Blood and moves Qi. The last herb in the formula is Shu Di Huang (Processed Rehmannia Root), which tonifies Yin and Jing as well as nourishes the Blood.
