What is Lian Qiao?:

The Chinese Herb Lian Qiao is the ripening fruit of the Forsythia plant (which is green in color and sometimes referred to as Qing Qiao). Fully ripened forsythia fruit can also be used medicinally—they are referred to as is Liao Qiao in Chinese nomenclature– but are considered to be less effective that the semi-matured, green fruits.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Therapeutic Actions of Lian Qiao:

Lian Qiao has an ascending and dispersing nature and is used to clear heat and eliminate toxins from the exterior layers of the body (i.e. clears exterior wind heat). In other contexts it can be used in formula to clear heat from the interior of the body as well (i.e. from the blood/nutritive level).

Best med for a runny nise

When you take this, you feel nothing, and then realize your nose is not runny.



Absolutely amazing!

We used this for one of our horses that has had a runny nose and cough for three months. He was on expensive cough medicine from the veterinarian that required us to use gloves to administer it. Also was on medicine for allergies twice a day. We started using this twice today instead of all of that. Within four days he had stopped coughing and his nose stopped running. This was at the direction of one of our other veterinarians. I’m so glad she told us about this herb. Now I’m curious about using it for us when we have a runny noses or coughs.
