Tangkuei and Bupleurum


This sweet-tasting herbal formula is a wonder. It makes you feel alert but calm, and it is a mood-enhancer. It treats fatigue, depression and irritability, especially due to exhaustion. The formula also has anti-inflammatory and anti-stress effects. Anti-inflammatory action is mediated through the enhanced release and potentiation of hormones from the adrenal cortex, a similar yet milder effect to  medical anti-inflammatory drugs). The anti-stress effect reduces severe anxiety (research shows effects as strong as that of diazepam but without the side effects). It also has positive mood effects. Traditionally used to treat:

  • depression
  • irritability
  • short-temperedness
  • headache
  • abdominal pain
  • IBS irritable bowel syndrome
  • faintness
  • tiring easily
  • fatigue
  • numb extremities
  • light sleep
  • oedema (fluid retention)
  • anorexia
  • PMT
  • menopause
  • irregular periods,
  • liver Chi Stagnation
  • Blood Deficiency
  • Spleen Chi Deficiency
  • Liver and Spleen disharmony
The Tangkuei & Bupleurum replaces the Cyperus formula, which was a part of of Happiness Pack.
Tangkuei & Bupleurum is better suited as it not only treats stress, irritability and makes you feel calm, it also builds vitality, in particular physical and mental strength. Tangkuei & Bupleurum goes really well with the Major Four.
