What does it do?

Nourish Your Stomach and Strengthen Digestion

Eat, drink, and be merry. It's one of life's greatest rules to live by….

But it's hard to enjoy life when you get heartburn, indigestion and bloating, an IBS flare-up, gastritis, or GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease), after a meal.

A common western remedy for post-prandial malaise is to take an antacid, which dilutes, weakens, or neutralizes stomach acid. This is a "Band-Aid" approach to treating indigestion. Antacids, proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) and other over-the-counter indigestion remedies often fail to treat the root cause of digestion imbalances.

From a western functional medicine perspective, stomach acid, in fact, is crucial to maintaining not only strong digestive health, but overall health. Not having enough stomach acid can lead to an overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the gut. It can also lead to nutrient malabsorption, as well as a weakened immune system.

Thankfully, there is an all-natural herbal solution to get you back on track to having a happy belly. It's called StomachVigor™, which is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formula that addresses the root cause of indigestion and improves the functionality of your digestive organs.

Happy Stomach, Happy Spleen, Happy Meals….

The synergy of the 14 herbs in StomachVigor helps to harmonize the Stomach-Spleen relationship.

In a perfect state of homeostasis, which is when all body systems are functioning normally, the Stomach and Spleen balance each other perfectly.

A properly functioning Spleen is essential for nutrient absorption and transformation of nutrients into energy. Strong Spleen function supplies the body abundant Qi.

But when Spleen is deficient, adsorption and transportation of nutrients is impaired. Consequently, stagnant nutrients accumulate in the Spleen and Stomach and become cold and damp in nature. When this occurs, your belly can be distended or bloated … even hours after a meal. Lack of appetite and acid reflux can also occur and your taste buds become dull. StomachVigor may help address these symptoms of cold-dampness in Spleen and Stomach because the herbs are warming and remove dampness. The formula acts like a metabolic reboot of your Spleen and reinvigorates appetite and taste.

How Does StomachVigor Work?

StomachVigor is a contemporary TCM formula, designed for modern digestive concerns. It's one of the most nutritious formulas for digestive imbalance, containing 14 herbs. The formula is an expansion of the original TCM digestive-aid remedy, Xiang Sha Liu Jun Zi Tang (Stomakinder™). Ginseng or Codonopsis is removed from the original formula. However, Zhi Shi, Huo Xiang, Hou Po, Xiang Fu, and Dou Kou are added. Consequently, StomachVigor has a stronger action of moving Qi, warming the middle, and removing dampness.

Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome), Fu Ling (Poria) and Zhi Gan Cao (Processed Licorice) are fairly mild and harmonious when combined and are frequently used in Qi tonifying formulas. Bai Zhu and Fu Ling not only tonify Qi but also dispel dampness and phlegm which often result from long-standing Spleen Qi deficiency.

Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) and Ban Xia (Pinellia tuber) transform dampness and phlegm more aggressively. Aromatic Mu Xiang (Aucklandia) and Sha Ren (Cardamom seed) also transform dampness, and also promote the movement of Qi. They are especially beneficial for strengthening the Qi of the middle jiao. Mu Xiang specifically resolves stagnant Qi of the Spleen, Stomach and Intestines, thereby alleviating abdominal pain and discomfort. Sha Ren is particularly effective in reducing nausea and is commonly used to treat morning sickness.

Zhi Shi (Immature Bitter Orange) relieves abdominal distention, while Huo Xiang, although best known in the west as patchouli, an all-natural fragrant essential oil, transforms turbidity. This is a critical function as turbidity occurs when nutrients cannot be properly decomposed and turn into undigested metabolites. Huo Xiang can help transform these metabolites into usable energy. Hou Po (Magnolia Bark) also helps with distention and promotes Qi movement. Xiang Fu (Cyperus Rhizome) unblocks stagnant Qi and helps relieve major digestive disturbances such as ulcers. Another herb that has similar actions to the other herbs in this section is one that many people are familiar with as a cooking spice: cardamom, aka Dou Kou. In TCM applications, it warms the Middle Jiao and descends Qi, which stimulates digestive churning in the Stomach.

Finally, the last grouping of herbs is Sheng Jiang (Fresh Ginger) and Da Zao (Chinese Date). The former stops hiccups while the latter nourishes the blood.
