It facilitates the removal of toxins from the liver cells; regenerates injured liver cells; help blocks fibrosis in people with inflamed liver conditions secondary to diseases such as alcohol abuse or hepatitis.

Salvia root extract (Dan Shen or Red Sage) promotes Blood circulation, stops pain, tranquilizes the mind by nourishing the heart and promotes new tissue regeneration. Because of its positive effect on the circulation, Dan Shen is traditionally used to treat angina pectoris (chest Bi strangulating painÂ¡in TCM). In recent studies, the active components of Dan Shen have shown an ability to dilate coronary blood vessels and peripheral blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the heart. Hawthorn Berry (Shan Zha or Crataegus) is a very effective herb for the heart and blood vessels. Its actions as a coronary restorative, cardiovascular relaxant and circulatory and systemic resolvent are unequaled, making Shan Zha a valuable adjunct in formulas for coronary deficiency with angina, atherosclerosis, hyperlipidemia, neurocardiac disorders, coronary artery spasm, chest tightness, shortness of breath, palpitations and anxiety. The beneficial effects of Shan Zha in the case of angina are due to improvement in the blood and oxygen supply of the heart, resulting from dilation of the coronary vessels, as well as improvement of the metabolic processes in the heart.|

Red yeast rice has been used in China for centuries as both a food and as a medicinal substance. It is made by fermenting a type of yeast called Monascus purpureus over red rice. In Chinese medicine, red yeast rice is used to promote blood circulation, soothe upset stomach, and invigorate the function of the spleen, a body organ that destroys old blood cells and filters foreign substances. Recently, it has been discovered that red yeast rice contains substances that are similar to prescription medications that lower cholesterol.
