| Herbs for Immune System Boost |

Question from: Chee

I’m from Malaysia. I would very much appreciate it if you could answer my question below:
I came across a herb combination containing the herbs below, and I doubt whether it is effective for discharging the body’s toxins and boosting the immune system.
Cynanchum otophyllum - 100 mg
Rubia yunnanensis - 100 mg
Panax quinquefolius - 100 mg
Atractylodes macrocephala rhizoma (rhizome) - 60 mg
Nelumbo nucifera folium (leaf) - 40 mg
The above combination is in capsules.
Ginseng (Panax) is a well-known booster of the body’s systems. Bai Zhu (Atractylodes) strengthens the spleen and helps to build chi energy. Lotus (Nelumbo) affects many parts of the body and treats many conditions over 60, including the spleen and kidneys. We don’t know anything about the other two herbs; but taking what we do know about the other three, I would say that the chance is good that this formula works as advertised.
