Within this formula, Shu Di is the sovereign medicinal which supplements the kidneys, enriches yin, and fosters essence. Its ministers are Shan Yao, Shan Zhu Yu, and Gou Qi Zi which also supplement the kidneys and enrich yin. Shan Yao also supplements the spleen qi, while Shan Zhu Yu and Gou Qi Zi also supplement the liver. Fu Ling fortifies the spleen and seeps dampness. Mix-fried Gan Cao regulates and harmonizes all the other medicinals in the formula as well as assists Shan Yao and Fu Ling in supplementing the spleen. Therefore, this formula takes into account the interdependent relationship between the former and latter heavens. Unlike Liu Wei Di Huang Wan, this formula is essentially entirely supplementing and supporting in nature.
