How It Works:
Chinese Anti-Gas supports both the digestive and detoxifying functions of the body, including the urinary system. It is considered "earth reducing" in Chinese herbology. Its Chinese name xiao dao can be translated as "clear the congestion." Under Chinese philosophy, this formula is designed to move energy (chi) to the head and support the natural elimination of excess moisture and toxins.
Its primary herbs include agastache, crataegus fruit, hoelen and gastrodia. Agastache is traditionally used to strengthen the stomach and to increase energy. In Chinese culture, it is said to drive out moisture. Crataegus fruit helps metabolic clearing in the body. Studies show that crataegus fruit is also beneficial to the heart. Hoelen is a fungus that grows on pine tree roots. It has diuretic properties; Chinese herbalists use it to "drain dampness." In Japanese Kampo medicine, the fungus is used to promote urination.Gastrodia is a traditional Chinese herb that is useful in modulating "exuberant yang" of the liver and calming internal wind.
