Cold Signoff™ (Yin Qiao Jie Du Pian, Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan,
Yin Chiao Chieh Tu Pien, Yinchiao Tablets, Yin Qiao San, 银翘解毒片)
is a highly regarded Chinese herbal formula invented in 1798.
Today, thanks to its efficacy and safety, it is a household Chinese medicine for cold and flu in China
and is getting popular in USA.
What does it do?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of pathogenic influences.
The attacks first invade the peripheral and the body reacts with symptoms like fever, cough, and
headache. If not halted they further invade the interior of the body and causes severe conditions.
The pathogenic influences in modern medical terms belong to bacteria and viruses (e. g., cold viruses
and flu viruses).
Cold Signoff™ works to halt the invasion of pathogenic influences and relieves
the associated symptoms. It is mainly used for the common cold and flu (influenza). It is most
effective when taken at the first signs of cold or flu such as sore throat, runny nose, cough,
nasal congestion, and headache.
Modern studies suggested a pharmacological action of Cold Signoff™
that is consistent with its use for cold and flu relief1. For example, it inhibits the growth of
many strains of bacteria and viruses including influenza A virus; it reduces fever in animal models;
it inhibits inflammation.
Cold Signoff™ is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for
relieving the exterior symptoms and clearing away toxins. The symptoms may include wind-heat
type common cold, fever with headache, cough with dry mouth and sore throat.
Cold Signoff™ is also used to prevent cold and flu. In a clinical study
involving 1480 people, only 2.6% of people who took Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan
for 6 weeks developed flu whereas 17.55%
people in the control group developed flu
1. We recommend to use Cold Signoff™ for prevention of colds or flu
when an outbreak occurs in the community, the family or the working places.

"...tell you how happy I am
with your product. A fellow ballet dancer introduced
me to your product last year in the middle of the
seasons' fall tour. As many of the company members
were getting sick, he and I came through the month
long adventure healthy. We traveled throughout the
midwest by bus. Very close quarters! When we got back
home, I contacted you and ordered my own supply. Now
Nutcracker Season is here again, and I already have
started to take your product to stave off the
inevitable shared quarters contagious factor.
Specifically, I take the quiang li yin qiao jie du wan
and the ling qiao jie du pian. I find the second to
be extremely effective in keeping me healthy during the
dancing days of the holidays.
Thank you for providing such a worthwhile and
