Kunbao Wan is considered the best herbal formula for menopause, tried and tested for over 1000 years. It helps alleviate menopause symptoms, often within 2-4 weeks. It is a yin-nourishing formula, used to restore hormone imbalance, alleviate insomnia, and reduce restlessness. It also helps to relieve stress, irritability, and poor memory.
The brand is Tong Ren Tang, one of the most respected manufacturers of herbal medicine in China, founded in 1669.
A clinical trial was carried out using the combination of acupuncture and Kunbao Wan to relieve menopausal syndromes. After receiving 10 sessions of treatment, the level of FSH decreased significantly, and KBW was shown to work as a selective estrogen receptor modulator. Patients showed a significant reduction in the number of symptoms from the pretreatment to the post-treatment stage (Azizi, Hoda & Liu, Yan Feng, 2011).
Instructions: Take 1 sachet twice daily after meals. 1 month is the suggested course of treatment to help with hot flashes and night sweats for pre- or post-menopause; 3 months, for menopause.
