Run Chang Tang: The Ancient Chinese Solution for Constipation Relief

Are you struggling with constipation? Look no further than Run Chang Tang, the time-tested Chinese herbal formula for gentle and effective relief.


Key Functions:

  • Clears heat
  • Moistens intestines
  • Promotes bowel movements


The History of Run Chang Tang:

Dating back to the 13th century, Run Chang Tang was formulated by the renowned Chinese physician Li Gao. During the turbulent Genghis Khan invasions, food shortages were rampant, and people resorted to consuming spoiled food and even human flesh. In response to these dire circumstances, Li Gao founded the school of supplementing earth, which focused on regulating the digestive system to treat disease, rather than simply expelling pathogens.


Run Chang Tang was one of the many formulas recorded in Li Gao's seminal book on balancing digestion. Over the centuries, the formula has undergone moderate revisions to become the highly effective constipation remedy we know and trust today.

Traditional Indications:


Run Chang Tang is particularly recommended for the elderly who suffer from constipation, characterized by dry skin, a hard abdominal wall, or a lax abdomen with hard stools resembling rabbit excrement. The formula is gentle and can be used for an extended period without producing side effects.


Modern Indications:

  • Constipation in the elderly
  • Habitual constipation
  • Supports normal arterial function



Each bottle contains 100g of Run Chang Tang. To be taken orally with warm water, 5g per time, 2 times per day.
