Yin Qiao San
Sang Ju Yin
Only the finest hand-selected Chinese herbs are used. Rigorous manufacturing standards are applied at each stage of production.
Initial Defense combines the two most important formulas for expelling exterior Wind Heat invasion. They were both developed at the same time by the same author, Wu Ju-Tong, in Wen Bing Tiao Bian in 1798, for similar patterns and with similar ingredients. While “Honeysuckle and Forsythia Powder” (Yin Qiao San) was a stronger formula to relieve invasions and Heat, “Mulberry Leaf and Chrysanthemum Decoction” (Sang Ju Yin) was designed to focus on the Lungs. The combination of these two formulas creates a formula that can address a very broad range of Wind Heat disharmonies.
This formula will vent Wind and Heat invasions that are lodged in the Defensive (Wei) Qi level out through the skin. Initial Defense simultaneously relieves surface Wind Heat invasion and corrects disharmonies that have become lodged deeper in the interior at the Qi level. It helps to support a healthy immune system.
