Supports Stomach Comfort

It's day two of a week-long Caribbean cruise. So far, it's a blast. You're in the company of friends, both new and old, enjoying the company, the views and entertainment, and especially the bottomless glasses of wine and endless decadent desserts and appetizers. But something you're about to eat is going to quickly put a serious damper on your vacation….

Maybe it was the bacon-wrapped shrimp. Or maybe it was the chocolate mousse. But something you ate is not cooperating with your belly. Your stomach is distended. You certainly do not feel like indulging anymore at the buffet. And as the stomach upset worsens, you feel heavy.

If you have Stomach Dampclear™ with you, you may not be down and out for the rest of the cruise. Stomach Dampclear is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formula that's fast-acting. It may help clear damp accumulation in the Spleen and Stomach. This is one herbal formula you may want to consider having handy when you go on vacation (and at home, as well).

Time-tested Formula Dries Dampness and Harmonizes Stomach

Stomach Dampclear is an ancient formula. Dating back 1000 years, this formula consists of six botanical herbs. These herbs synergistically dry dampness in the digestive tract and invigorates Spleen's transporting function, promotes the movement of Qi, and harmonizes the stomach.

When talking about Spleen in TCM, it's quite different than "the spleen" organ of western anatomy. In TCM theory, Spleen is the primary organ system of digestion. Spleen's main function is to transform and transport nutrients.

But when you eat foods like ice cream a lot, dampness can manifest in Spleen. (Sorry, ice cream is one of the biggest offenders in creating Spleen dampness.)

And when dampness overloads the Spleen, Spleen's ability to function properly is impeded. Spleen dampness is apparent when the tongue presents with a white, greasy, thick coating.

When dampness settles in the intestines, loose stools may occur.

How Does Stomach Dampclear Work?

The herbs in this TCM formula dry dampness and invigorate the Spleen, and regulate Spleen and Stomach Qi, thus harmonizing the middle Jiao.

Cang Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) is a bitter, warming herb that directly influences the Spleen, Stomach and Liver Channels. It is best used to dry dampness and strengthens Spleen.

Hou Po (Magnolia Bark), like Cang Zhu, dries dampness. It also influences the Large Intestine Channel. Moreover, it moves rebellious Qi downward, thereby resolving distention.

Chen Pi (Dried Tangerine Peel), also bitter and warming, regulates Qi, invigorates Spleen, and harmonizes Stomach.

Gan Cao (Licorice Root) is sweet and influences the Heart, Lung, Spleen and Stomach Channels. Its main action in Stomach Dampclear is tonifying the Spleen and augmenting Qi, as well as harmonizing the action of other herbs.

Da Zao (Chinese Date), a sweet and warming herb, directly influences the Spleen and Stomach Channels and has the same actions as Gan Cao in this application.

The last herb in the formula, is Sheng Jiang (Fresh Ginger). Sheng Jiang warms the Middle Burner (part of the Zang-fu organ system that consists of the abdominal area organs).
