Chen Pi (Aged Tangerine Peel)- Liquid Extract (Tincture):
Chen Pi (Aged Tangerine Peel) is a key ingredient in formulas that restore the normal flow of qi to the digestive system, which involves moving excess phlegm and stagnation from the stomach (and middle section of the body more generally).
Chen Pi is widely used in formulas that address digestive symptoms (e.g. Liu Jun Zi Wan (Six Gentlemen) or Bao He Wan). It can be used as a single herb to address issues such as abdominal fullness & bloating, abdominal cramping, lack of appetite, loose stools, and nausea and vomiting.
Lastly, due to its action of dispelling dampness and accumulated phlegm in the mid-section, it is also used in formulas that address cough and respiratory problems rooted in those causes (e.g. Qing Qi Hua Tan Tang)
