What is it?:

Poria Cortex Liquid Tincture (Fu Ling Pi Tang) is extracted from dried slices of the poria fungus, a kind of mushroom/fungus that grows underneath the soil (usually at the base of pine trees) in a compact, concentrated mass of mycelium where its nutrients (and other constituents) are stored. It is among the most widely used herbs in Chinese medicine and is found in hundreds of different formulas where stimulating sluggish digestion and draining excess dampness from the body (through the urine) is required. Add it to any supplement regimen when dampness and poor digestion are present.

What is it good for:

  • stimulating sluggish digestion
  • addressing "water retention" issues, such as edema and dysuria

Traditional Chinese medicine benefits:

  • tonify Spleen qi
  • drain damp
  • promote urination

What else you might like to know:

It is important to understand that Chinese herbs work by restoring balance to the body. This means that you usually have to take an herb or a formula for a longer period of time than you would with pharmaceuticals in order to get results-- usually at least a month, and often times longer than that... it all depends on the individual and the nature of the ailment being addressed.
