Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan
Uses: Cold and Flu Treatment and Prevention. “Yin Qiao”, or in this case Yin Qiao Du Wan/Pian, is a classic formula for the cold and flu – both treatment and prevention. It is best used when symptoms first arise, so this is a popular formula to be kept in peoples homes at all times. When taken at the first signs of drainage, cough, headache, achiness, etc. the formula excels at clearing these symptoms before they prolong or turn into deeper conditions such as sinus infections, bronchitis, etc. Yin Qiao, being a classic Chinese formula, has been studied and researchers have found that the formula has both anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects on the body, that it reduces inflammation, and from a Chinese perspective will serve to strengthen the immunity to prevent future attackes.*
