Wuji Baifeng Wan

This is an ancient formulation called Wuji Baifeng Wan, a special medicinal chicken herbal soup in pill form 🥘 It is a general tonic for alleviating menstrual disorders and other blood deficiency syndromes (such as fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, poor memory), as well as for treating yin deficiency syndromes (such as dry mouth and throat, flushed cheeks, and perspiration at night). It most often comes in small honey pills, packaged in a ball sealed in wax for freshness—my favorite Chinese Medicine packaging!

The main ingredient in this formulation is dehydrated Taihe silkie chicken soup, a well-known nourishing ingredient in Chinese medicine and a unique delicacy in Chinese cooking 🍗 Lab tests have indicated that Taihe chicken contains unique hormones, blue pigment, and amino acids which increase blood cells and hemoglobin, and collective clinical experience has demonstrated that Taihe chicken is particularly effective for treating women's disorders, such as infertility, excessive uterine bleeding, habitual miscarriage, and post-partum disorders.

The nourishing, tonifying qualities of the Taihe chicken soup is likely due to the unique natural conditions in Wushan, especially due to Wushan spring water which contains various minerals, according to research conducted by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. A recent study on the nutritional content of eggs also showed that vitamins B2, B6, D and E, calcium, and potassium content in silkie chicken eggs were significantly higher than those of regular chicken eggs 🥚 Silkie chicken eggs also had higher unsaturated fatty acids and lower cholesterol.

Other ingredients of Wuji Baifeng Wan include raw and steamed rehmannia, angelica root, cyperus, dioscorea, peony, and deer antler, and these tonifying ingredients directly complement the traditionally-recognized liver/kidney tonic properties of the Taihe chicken 🌿 Wuji Baifeng Wan is considered a non-toxic general formula.

Have you ever come across this formulation? If so, what’s been your experience? (I’ve found it to be remarkably effective and have been giving it to friends suffering from dysmenorrhea!)
