Dr. Fung's Cold Preparation for Children Herbal Supplement
If you're looking for a liquid herbal supplement that may work to maintain optimal immune and digestive function in children you might want to try Yin Chao Junior by Health Concerns.
Specifically Yin Chao Junior offers a blend of Chinese herbs that may help address certain symptoms associated with the common cold as well as other minor upper respiratory tract infections. For example forsythia (lian qiao) might work to alleviate a mild fever or sore throat while morus leaf (sang ye) could serve as a gentle cough suppressant.
In addition this supplement contains herbs like immature aurantium (zhi shi) and shen qu that might act to stimulate the movement of food through the digestive tract. As a result Yin Chao Junior may help address some signs of gastrointestinal discomfort such as mild diarrhea or vomiting.
This is an empirical formula based on Dr. Fung's 60 years of clinical experience. This formula is a gentle yet effective remedy for addressing children's colds. It is a well-rounded combination that has a multi-pronged approach: to clear heat, harmonize the digestion, moisten the throat and lung, and to invigorate the blood and tonify the Qi. The chief herb forsythia (lian qiao) clears heat and toxin. White Mulberry leaf (sang ye) expels wind and clears heat from the lung. Chrysanthemum (ju hua) disperses wind and clears heat, and is helpful in alleviating headache that accompanies colds. Chinese mint herb (bo he) disperses wind-heat, and clears the head and eyes and benefits the throat. Herbs in the formula that address cough include peucedanum (qian hu), zhejiang fritillary bulb (zhe bei mu), and loquat leaf (pi pa ye), with the latter also treating vomiting. For digestive problems, rice sprouts and immature bitter orange (zhi shi)remove food stagnation; the latter also relieves constipation. Trichosanthes peel (Gua lou pi) moistens the lung. Platycodon (jie geng) opens up and disseminates the lung qi and expels phlegm. Gardenia (zhi zi) clears heat and eliminates irritability. Chinese eupatorium (pei lan) dispels heat and dampness. Perilla leaf (zi su ye) releases the exterior and disperses cold.
