Within this formula, Shu Di Huang strongly supplements true yin. Shan Zhu Yu and Gou Qi Zi supplement the liver and nourish blood. Shan Yao supplements yin at the same time as it fortifies the spleen. Lu Jiao Jiao and Gui Ban Jiao, being bloody, meaty ingredients, fill the essence. Tu Si Zi supplements both yin and yang evenly, while Chuan Niu Xi guides the other medicinals to move downward, supplements the liver and kidneys, strengthens the sinews and bones, and quickens the blood. This formula comes from Zhang Jing-yues later Ming dynasty Jing Yue Quan Shu (Jing-yues Collected Writings) published in 1624.
