Yes, this formula can be great for women but it’s good for men too. Another key indicator is tenderness under the ribcage (esp on the right), and a wiry (like a guitar string) pulse. The main herbs are bupleurum a cooling, drying herb that relaxes the Liver (actual lab results say it can detoxify the Liver), Dang Gui a warm moistening herb which nourishes the Liver & Blood & White Peony also moistens is slightly cooling & relaxes the Liver. Finally, White Atractylodes & Poria help to strengthen the digestive system & build energy. Overall, this is a well-balanced formula that can help with stress, PMS, Digestive Problems & much more.
