Veterinary Authorization Required


Lift the Qi (Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang) was first published in the 13th century work, Treatise on the Spleen and Stomach, written by Li Dongyuan. Its incorporation of Four Gentlemen Decoction (Si Jun Zi Tang) speaks to its Spleen Qi or digestion-supporting effects. Chinese red ginseng root and rhizome, White atractylodes rhizome, Tangerine dried rind of mature fruit and Chinese licorice root and rhizome constitute four of the Six GentlePets (Liu Jun Zi Tang) formula, a quintessential Spleen Qi tonic. Astragalus root, together with White atractylodes rhizome, boosts Wei Qi production, supporting a healthy immune system. Dong quai root nourishes Liver Blood that has been weakened by flagging Spleen Qi. Bupleurum root moves Liver Qi that has become stagnant from the lack of Blood. Cimicifuga rhizome also helps mobilize this stagnant Qi, which has sunk down to and become trapped in the lower abdomen.\
