What does it do?

The importance of supporting cardiovascular health cannot be overemphasized.

Traditional Chinese Medicine refers to the pattern Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian deals with as "Xiong Bi" or "Chest obstruction." It is frequently caused by phlegm obstruction or blood stasis preventing proper movement of Yang Qi (energy) in the chest. Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian optimizes blood flow through the Heart and relieves discomfort by dissolving Blood stasis, opening the orifices, cooling the Blood, dispersing Phlegm, and restoring vital energy.

Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian is composed of three herbs. Dan Shen (Salvia root) is paired with San Qi (Notoginseng) to invigorate the blood and dispel stasis. San Qi has been studied for its supportive effect on the cardiovascular system.

Dan Shen is highly prized for its ability to dispel blood stasis while also nourishing the blood. Dan Shen additionally cools the blood and calms the spirit or Shen, thought to be housed in the heart. Dan Shen has been shown to potentially support the heart function.

The final herb in this formula is Shu He Xiang (Styrax). Shu He Xiang powerfully opens the orifices and disperses phlegm turbidity. Shu He Xiang also benefits the heart muscle by supporting blood flow.

Studes suggest that Fu Fang Dan Shen Pian has a beneficial effect on the heart and cardiovascular system.
