What does it do?

Nourish Your Stomach and Support 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 stomach discomforts after a meal.

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 digestion imbalances and improves the functionality of your digestive system.

Happy Stomach, Happy Spleen, Happy Meals….

The synergy of the 15 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 a sour sensation backing up into your mouth can also occur and your taste buds become dull. StomachVigor help support Spleen and Stomach comfort 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™). 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), Dang Shen (Codonopsis root) 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 Cang Zhu (Cang-zhu atractylodes rhizome) transform dampness. 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.

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. 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.
