Formula explanation
Anemarrhena nourishes the kidneys and clears vacuity heat, while Phellodendron cleas heat and eliminates dampness. By leading yang back down to its lower source, Li Dong-yuan even says these two medicinals in
combination supplement the essence, although this effect may only be indirect. Codonopsis fortifies the spleen and boosts the qi. Dang Gui, Peony, and cooked Rehmannia nourish the blood and enrich yin. Ligusticum Wallichium
upbears yang and also quickens the blood, rectifying the qi within the blood. Achyranthes downbears the blood and also quickens the blood. Uncooked Rehmannia clears heat from the blood, also quickens the blood, and has some
ability to enrich yin as well. Psoralea fortifies the spleen and supplements the kidneys. This means it supplements the spleen qi and kidney yang. It is assisted in supplementing kidney yang by Eucommia which nourishes the liver
and invigorates the kidneys. When Achyranthes, Psoralea, and Eucommia are used together, they strengthen the low and knees. Poria assists Codonopsis in fortifying the spleen. However, it also seeps dampness and leads fire to
move downward. In addition, it quiets the spirit. Citrus rectifies the qi, harmonizes the stomach, eliminates dampness, and transform phlegm. Fennel moves the qi specifically in the liver channel. It stops pain and also
relieves abdominal distention (and flatulence). Licorice harmonizes all the other medicinals in the formula, while nourishing the heart and quieting the spirit.
