What does it do?

Strengthens The Body's Defensive Qi

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, our body is vulnerable to the attacks of external evils such as Wind, Cold, Damp, and Heat etc. These attacks occur from the surface our body is exposed to: mouth, nose, or skin.

Not surprising, our body has the natural ability of defending itself from such attacks. TCM calls this line of defense as "Wei Qi" or defensive Qi energy. The outcome of any evil attack will depend on the balance in the fight of Wei Qi and evils.

Yu Ping Feng San, an ancient herbal formula in the annals of TCM, is well known in TCM for reinforcing the body's surface and strengthening the defensive Qi. Yu Ping Feng literally means Jade Screen. Just think of a solid screen at doorway that shields wind from blowing into the room.

How Does JadeDefender Work?

JadeDefender supports Wei Qi by keeping the skin's sweat pores closed. This is an important element of immune support because the sweat pores are the entry portals for external evils. (If you sweat often, and for no good reason, i.e. when the weather is not hot, this could be an indication your Wei Qi is weak and needs to be fortified with Jade Defender.)

JadeDefender is one of the most basic formulas in TCM, consisting of just three herbs, yet they are potent for building Wei Qi.

Huang Qi (Astragalus root) halts Wind from penetrating deep into the muscle tissue by enhancing the grain of the skin and the texture of the subcutaneous flesh. Astragalus also nourishes Qi. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome) tonifies spleen function. This action supports immune function by strengthening digestive function and building Qi and vital fluids such as Blood. Astragalus works with Bai Zhu to strengthen Qi and act as an astringent (stops sweating). Fang Feng (Siler root) disperses wind and dampness from the body.

Yu Ping Feng Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia to tonify Qi (vital energy), consolidate the body's external surface, and stop perspiration. It is applicable when the body manifests susceptibility to Wind evils, spontaneous sweating, and pale complexion.

Please note that our tablets may appear neutral in finishing and a little brittle. You may observe a tiny bit of fine powder at the bottom of your bottle and occasionally one or a couple of broken tablets after transportation. This is because unlike other manufacturers, our tablets are not coated as part of our effort to minimize the use of excipients and to make them as pure as possible. These tablets can also be easily dissolved in hot water to serve as tea.
