Bao Ji Wan (Bao Ji Pian, Stomacomfort™, 保济丸
or variously called as Po Chai Pills, Curing Pills, Kang Ning Wan),
is a household
traditional Chinese medicine for quick help on acute gastrointestinal discomforts, whether it is due to
motion sickness, summer colds, overeating, or hangover.† The Chinese herb is one of the few Chinese medicines strongly
recommended to take along with wherever you go.
What does it do?
Bao Ji Wan was originated a century ago in Southern China where the weather is hot and humid especially
during the summer and people are used to drink cooling herbal teas to clear the heat and assist digestion.
The Herbal formula was said given by a Buddhist monk to someone (Mr. Li) who often offered free herbal
tea to him and others. The name of the Chinese herbal tea is thus derived to indicate "help the public" in Chinese.
Po Chai Pills consists of 16 Chinese herbs and works to relieve the exterior symptoms (e. g., chill, fever,
headache), remove dampness, and harmonize the stomach in the terms of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).†
People often get motion-sick during travels. The Chinese herbs Gou Teng (Uncaria), Bai Ji Li
(Tribulus), and Ju Hua (Chrysanthemus flower) in Bao Ji Wan (Pian) calm the Liver, disperse
the Wind, and work together to relieve headache and dizziness and thus help manage motion sickness.†
Stomach discomforts also occur often during travels. For one, motion sickness may come along with nausea, throw-up,
and loss of appetite. One eats unfamiliar food at irregular hours which may upset the stomach with diarrhea, indigestion etc.
Bao Ji Wan (Pian) contains a set of Chinese herbs that take care of gastrointestinal disorders and promote
digestion.† For example, Cang Zhu (Atractylodes) strengthens the Spleen and dries Dampness; Hou Pu (Magnolia
bark) moves Qi energy and removes food stagnation; Ju Hong (Tangerine peel) strengthens the stomach
and aids digestion; Mu Xiang (Aucklandia) moves Qi energy, relieves pain and harmonizes the stomach;
Fu Ling (Hoelin mushroom) and Yi Yi Ren (Job's tears seeds) strengthen the Spleen and eliminate
dampness by promoting urination; Shen Qu (Medicated leaven) and Gu Ya (Rice sprout) dissolve food
Bao Ji Wan (Pian)/Po Chai Pills is good for use in summer colds with gastrointestinal symptoms.†
In addition to the above Chinese herbs that address the gastrointestinal problem, the herbal formula
has Chinese herbs that help relieve cold symptoms such as chill, fever, and headache. In this aspect,
Huo Xiang (Agastache) transforms Dampness, stops vomiting, and disperses Wind-Cold; Bai Zhi (Angelicae Dahuricae)
disperses Wind and relieves the exterior symptoms like headache; Bo He (Mint) disperses Wind Heat;
Ge Gen (Kudzu root) relaxes muscles and clears heat; Tian Hua Fen (Trichosanthes) clears heat and generates
