Question from: Jeanine

Does bu zhong yi qi wan help you lose weight?

Bu zhong yi qi wan is a Chinese formula that is used to increase vitality or vital energy, referred to as "qi" in traditional Chinese medicine. In western herbal medicine, some of the herbs in the formula are used for their adaptogenic properties (helps the body cope with the effects of stress.) Therefore, if the body is extremely depleted and worn out, this formula could be used to help to build up and restore the depleted body. In terms of using this formula for weight loss, it would depend on the cause of the weight gain. If the weight gain is from stress, a depleted body and reduced vital energy then yes this formula could be used.
