Classically known as Augmented Jade Windscreen, this formula is used to build defensive energy (wei qi) and Consolidate the Surface.
Formula Source: Jade Windscreen Powder, Teachings of Zhu Dan Xi
Actions: Augments the Qi, Stabilizes the Exterior
Notes: The traditional formula was improved with the addition of Ligustrum lucidum (privit fruit / Nu Zhen Zi) and Cinammomi ramulus (cinammon twig / Gui Zhi). Adding Ligustrum expands the immune enhancing property of astragalus while reducing the drying properties of both the atractylodes and the ledebouriella. Replacing some siler and bai zhu with cinnamon twig also reduces dryness. These changes makes the formula more potent and suitable for long-term use for those with dry or yin deficient constitutions.
