Xiao Chai Hu Extra, 50ml
|Unit Size||50ml / 1.7 fl oz|
The formula for Xiao Chai Hu tang was first recorded in the Shang Han Za Bing Lun during the Han Dynasty and is still in wide use in current times. It’s not surprising as this formula harmonizes shao yang syndrome, clears early stage external pathogenic invasions and can clear latent pathogens that have lingered or entered a chronic phase. This modified version also helps when gu syndrome is a component. There are 2 dosage levels suggested for both adults and children aged above 7. One is a higher dose for acute early stage infections and the other is a lower dosage for clearing latent pathogens.
Dual Extracted 1:3 w:v
The Bio HerboloQi version, called Xiao Chai Hu Extra contains a few ‘extra’ modifications so we can make the most of using this formula today. As a dual extract, the result is a semi-sweet liquid that is easy to take and packs a punch. It is suitable for adults and children but should have boiling water added to evaporate some alcohol. According to the 11 yr old who flavor approved it, it tastes like an aromatic ginger patchouli syrup.
The phases of extraction used involve spagyric tincture methods with alcohol which is married with a second phase extract using imploded distilled water and organic medicinal honey. The herbs are calcined to extract the mineral salts which are grown out as crystals. This beautiful process allows us to include the natural ratio of salts, like potassium, from the herbs which makes the formula more whole, bioavailable and potent. The outcome is medicinally potent and delicious.
Modification to Xiao Chai Hu Tang
The Sheng Jiang dosage is on the high side, to strongly release the exterior and to support the biome. Considering the immense importance of biome mediated immune function in today’s health, Huo Xiang and Pei Lan have also been added. We see these two aromatic herbs being favored in many formulas designed for gu syndrome, viruses or pathogens that can express with respiratory and / or digestive symptoms. The traditional formula contains Zhi Gan Cao, which is included, but also enhanced with Gan Cao. Glycyrrhizin continues to demonstrate promise in new research for it’s potential to combat viral infections and to treat acute respiratory symptoms.
A spagyric tincture is an evolved alchemical medicine, that contains a full spectrum extraction of the herbal actives, more complete than a standard tincture. It has also been created in harmony with astrological timing relevant to the herbs used and their functions (medical astrology). Xiao Chai Hu Extra is ruled by the sun, overseeing medicines for fevers, viral infections and external pathogenic attacks involving heat. This includes some extra steps, beyond the usual tincture extraction process. After the dual phase extractions, the herbs are calcined to release the mineral salts that are still contained within them. Crystals are then grown from these mineral salts, here in the lab @bio_herboloqi, and are re-combined (the alchemical marriage) with the rest of the actives that have already been extracted. Medicinal honey is also ruled by the sun and brings this medicine into your body with ease. The medicinal crystals are electrolytes which enhance the bioavailability and absorption potential of the medicine. More evolved and whole, no medicine is left out. Our liquid formulas are also educated and blessed while being made, with the medicine buddha mantra for healing and good health.
