How do I use SI WU TANG?

SI WU TANG PIAN Dosage and Administration

ActiveHerb's version of Si Wu Tang Pian (Wan) is likely the most potent on the market. One 200 mg tablet is equals 1 gram of raw herb.

4 tablets 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. 

Practitioners may choose to double the dose for a stronger effect. Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations..

One bottle usually lasts 7 to 25 days.

An initial course of treatment is 4 - 6 bottles. In cases of fertility support, results may take six months or more. 


SI WU TANG's Ingredients

Shu Di Huang Rehmannia root (Steamed) 25%
Dang Gui (Shen) Tangkuei root 25%
Bai Shao Peony root (White) 25%
Chuan Xiong Ligusticum rhizome 25%


The formula consists of 2 pairs of herbs.  The first pair is SHU DI HUANG and BAI SHAO, which strongly tonify the blood. SHU DI strengthens both blood and Yin of the Liver and Kidneys. It also helps to build the JING  (essence), making it an important herb for aiding fertility. BAI SHAO moistens and nourishes the Liver, which regulates the flow of QI.  Since pain results from poor flow, you'll find BAI SHAO used in many pain formulas.

The second pair, DANG GUI and CHUAN XIONG, primarily vitalize (move) the blood and QI to help prevent blood stagnation.  Blood stagnation can occur when the Blood is strengthened, but not vitalized. DANG GUI both tonifies and vitalizes the blood, making it prominent in all Blood tonifying formulas. CHUAN XIONG very gently vitalizes the blood.  It is one of only a few vitalizing herbs that are OK to use during pregnancy.



Compared to teapills known as WAN, ActiveHerb's PIAN are Extra-Strength tablets made from concentrated herbs, and require a smaller dosage.  This makes the Activeherb version a decidedly good value.
