A highly-recommended and well-known formula for food stagnation and to support digestion, featuring hawthorn and other herbs used in Chinese medicine for better digestion and overall well-being. Bao He Wan can be thought of as an herbal probiotic, with the addition of the superfruit hawthorn.
The main ingredient, hawthorn berry, is one of the most frequently recommended traditional Chinese medicine remedies for digestive issues. This formula also includes “six leaven” aka Shen Qu, which is a combination of six fermented herbs rich in digestive enzymes to aid in better digestion and clear food stagnation.
Hawthorn has also been used in Western medicine for congestive heart failure (CHF), chest pain, and irregular heartbeat--in Germany, hawthorn extract has been approved for use as a prescription medication to improve chronic heart failure, as it supports cardiovascular health. It is also used to treat both low blood pressure and high blood pressure, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), and high cholesterol.
Studies show that in animals fed high-fat diets, hawthorn extract reduced body weight and fat build-up. Sugar taken from hawthorn berry also promoted the growth of obesity-fighting gut bacteria, suggesting its potential as a weight-loss prebiotic.
