Cardiovascular Support 3

  • Cardiovascular Support 3 (Shao Fu Zhu Yu Tang)

    Herbal Creatures™ Cardiovascular Support 3 is a high potency formula containing herbs traditionally used to improve blood circulation in the lower abdomen.

    A blend of herbs used for:

    • Pain and fullness in the lower abdominal region
    • Lower abdominal masses
    • Irregular oestrus, menstrual pain, infertility, endometriosis, ovarian cysts

    Residual pain after lower abdominal surgery

    • How it works  

      Cardiovascular Support 3 is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Shao Fu Zhu Yu Tang, used to improve blood circulation in the lower abdomen, in order to move static blood and alleviate pain. It is an important formula for fixed abdominal masses. The formula also warms the lower abdomen to restore normal menstruation or enhance fertility, in primates as well as various domestic animals.

      This formula has demonstrated anti-inflammatory effects, and human clinical studies and research have shown positive results in the treatment of both male and female infertility, hysteromyoma, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, dysmenorrhoea and dysfunctional uterine bleeding.

      Blood stasis, or sluggish blood flow, can occur in the abdomen following surgery. This formula can also be used to optimise recovery post-surgery especially when there is lingering pain.

      Traditional understanding

      This formula contains herbs which are used to warm, invigorate and enhance blood circulation. In Chinese medicine, stagnant blood flow is often explained through lack of warmth in the blood, so most herbs used to move the blood are also quite warming in nature, such as cinnamon and ginger. They assist with vasodilatation. Pain is alleviated when proper blood circulation to an area is restored, and increased warmth softens hardness.
