Baifeng Wan (Menstrual Issues, Infertility, Anemia)


Baifeng Wan is the most popular herbal formula for women’s health in the Chinese-speaking world, and is a general tonic for alleviating menstrual disorders as well as for treating Yin deficiency syndromes. It comes in small honey pills, packaged in a ball sealed in wax for freshness.

Women are over 3x more likely than men to suffer from anemia due to monthly menstruation. Baifeng Wan’s blood-building effect derives primarily from the blood-boosting herb Angelica Sinensis and the adaptogen Astragalus (which form the famous formula Danggui Blood-Supplementation Decoction, a pairing which has been shown in studies to mitigate many forms of anemia).

Baifeng Wan has also been studied in clinical trials for women with infertility. In a 2013 clinical trial of 89 infertile women, Baifeng Wan demonstrated a 90% success rate. Master physician and nationally recognized gynecology expert Guo Zhiqiang also especially recommends Baifeng Wan as a herbal supplement to support fertility.

How to take: You take the contents of one wax ball a day (those with severe symptoms can take 2 balls per day). Each contains about 30 mini pills (yes, all of these together equal one dose). Studies have shown this is most effective if taken starting from the day your period ends for 5-10 days; however, you may also take it during your period to relieve symptoms (cramps, for example). I prefer to split the dosage into two, one after lunch and one after dinner. The herbal pills are small and easy to swallow with water (you can take many at a time with a sip!). To open the ball, you can find the "equator" and squeeze hard along the line with your hand, or gently step on the ball until it cracks open.
