Dr. Shen's Jade Shield vs. Jade Windscreen
The traditional formula, Jade Windscreen (YU PING FENG WAN) has been augmented with the addition of Ligustrum lucidum (privit fruit / NU ZHEN ZI) and Cinammomi ramulus (cinammon twig / GUI ZHI).
We believe that Ligustrum expands the immune supporting property of the astragalus in the formula, while at the same time reducing the drying properties of both the atractylodes (BAI ZHU) and the ledebouriella (FANG FENG). Replacing some of these two with cinnamon twig (GUI ZHI) also tends to reduces dryness. These changes makes the formula more suitable for long-term use, especially for those with Blood Deficiency, YIN Deficiency, or dry constitutions.
We believe that Dr. Shen's Jade Shield Pills are more effective than similar products imported from China, because Dr. Shen uses premium quality export grade herbs, rather than the B Grade herbs that are normally used to make pills in China. Dr. Shen also imports their herbs whole, rather than as powder, so the herbs can be identified as being the correct species and grade. The Dr. Shen brand laboratory tests each batch of raw materials in the USA before tableting. Herbs are tested for heavy metals, mold, and harmful bacteria. Tablets are further tested for dissolvability. Dr. Shen's Jade Shield Pills are then coated with a thin vegetable glaze for easy swallowing.
