BU ZHONG YI QI TANG 補中益氣湯
Tonify the Middle and Augment the Qi
Ginseng and Astragalus Combination
Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang was first published in Clarifying Doubts About Damage from Internal and External Causes, in the year 1247 AD. As the title of the formula suggests, the key to augmenting the Qi of the whole body is to strengthen the middle, that is the key digestive organ of the Spleen. It's no secret that we obtain most (or all) of our energy by digesting food in the middle burner.
When to Use BU ZHONG YI QI TANG
This classical formula is also known as Central Qi Pills. It combines several strengthening herbs with 3 herbs that Raise the Qi. This makes it the 'go-to' formula for prolapse conditions. Its mildness and lifting qualities make it a suitable supplement for supporting the long term treatment of deficiency-caused hemorrhoids, and varicose veins as well as more serious organ prolapses.
- Strengthens the Spleen and the Middle Burner
- Raises the YANG. Used for prolapse conditions
- Fatigue, weakness and mild headache.
- Soft or loose stools.

BU ZHONG YI QI TANG Safety & Side Effects
Pregnant or nursing women should consult their health care provider before taking any supplement.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is powerful and reliable, but it can be complex. As TCM is not based on symptoms alone, self-diagnosis and self-treatment aren't recommended. Best to start a low cost online-herbal-consultation.
