What does it do?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of pathogenic influences. These attacks, called Wind evils, may come from the mouth, the nose, or the skin. Normally our body forms a natural line of defense to ward off these attacks. When the defense gets weaker, the body is more susceptible to the attacks and easily develops respiratory symptoms.
Yu Ping Feng San acts to enhance the defense. Literally the name means Jade Screen, as if it forms a solid screen to protect the body. Yu Ping Feng Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 to tonify Qi (vital energy), consolidate the body's exterior defense, and stop perspiration.† It is applicable when the body manifests susceptibility to Wind evils, spontaneous sweating, and pale complexion.
Yu Ping Feng Wan was the basic herbal formula recommended by Chinese health authorities to the public to enhance the immune function some years ago when SARS occurred in China.
Does research support JadeDefender?
Modern biomedical researches attribute the defense against the pathogens to the function of the immune system. The immune defense requires immunoglobulins (Ig), T lymphocytes, microphages, cytokines like interferons etc. Researches have been conducted to test whether Yu Ping Feng San supports the immune function. Indeed, in cultured murine macrophages Yu Ping Feng San was found to modulate the release of cytokines.2
In controlled clinical trials, Yu Ping Feng San is shown to strengthen the body's immune defense function in the respiratory tract in people who have chronic respiratory conditions or children who are susceptible to the pathogenic Wind attacks.3†
