Immune Formula Highlight: Jade Wind Screen
Updated: Feb 18, 2022
Jade Wind Screen or Yu Ping Feng San is an effective formula in supporting immune function. It is a preventative formula that is used while one is not already sick. This formula helps boost immunity by strengthening the function of the spleen and stomach.
Astragalus is one of the main herbs within this formula and its function is to boost metabolism, increase gut function, and strengthen the lungs. In Chinese medicine the function of the lungs and digestion are directly correlated to the strength of the immune system.
Another one of the herbs used in this formula is Bai Zhu. This is a common herb that is used to strengthen digestion, immunity, and overall vitality. It's ability to strengthen the gut in turn positively effects immunity.
Lastly, Feng Feng is the final herb in simplicity of Yu Ping Feng San Jade Wind Screen. It helps to eliminate any pathogen that gets close to the surfaces of the body. It effectively circulates the qi to discourage anything from entering. If a pathogen does enter it has the powerful function of pushing it out.
It is the combination of all three of these herbs that helps the body remain safe against the pathogen. Want to know if this is the right formula for you? Schedule a Telehealth Herbal Consult with one of our licensed Chinese Herbologists.
