The herbs in this traditional Chinese formula help promote regularity and provide gentle, effective overnight relief. These herbs were used to help support digestive system function and to promote the body's normal process of detoxification. Senna is an effective stimulant laxative that promotes bowel movements. Rhubarb root and sickle-pod senna seed were considered milder stimulant laxatives that complement the effects of senna. Ginger was used to lessen discomfort and cramping and to support digestive system function. Licorice root, dandelion and fo-ti were used to help support healthy liver function, promote normal detoxification, build the chia, or energy, and promote balance. Traditionally, the Chinese considered healthy digestion and elimination important for physical and mental well-being. For additional support in cleansing, use this tea along with Triple Leaf Detox Tea.
