Have you ever been in a situation where everyone you live with comes down with the cold and you fear that you’re next? Or have you ever been on a plane and the person next to you keeps sneezing? ….Enter Jade Windscreen Powder (Yu Ping Feng San).
Jade Windscreen Powder (Yu Ping Feng San) is one of my favorite herbal formula. It is elegantly composed of only 3 ingredients: mi zhi huang qi(honey-prepared astragalus radix), bai zhu (atractylodis macrocephalae rhizoma, and fang feng (saposhnikoviae radix).
Jade Windscreen Powder works by strengthening the body’s wei qi (defensive qi), which helps protect the body from external pathogenic influences. The same way that you would close the windows of your house if very strong storm winds were approaching, you can take Jade Windscreen to protect yourself from getting sick.
I usually take this formula if everyone around me is getting a cold or during flu season and it works well to prevent me from getting sick. Sometimes I take Jade Windscreen when I travel by airplane or going to the movie theater (places where the air is usually colder than normal and contained or recirculated).
Jade Windscreen is an excellent formula to have on hand if you find yourself surrounded by sick people or you’re just feeling run-down and susceptible to getting sick.
