Chest Unblock

Chest Unblock

  • Chest Unblock (Xiao Bu Xin Tang)

    Herbal Creatures™ Chest Unblock contains herbs traditionally used to treat chest pain.

    A blend of herbs used for:

    • Tightness in the chest and thoracic region
    • Cardiovascular disease
  • How it works

    Chest Unblock is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Xiao Bu Xin Tang, used to improve blood circulation in the chest and thoracic region. This formula also contains herbs that clear 'phlegm', or accumulated thick fluid from the chest. It is especially appropriate in cases of cardiovascular disease with thickened arteries and atherosclerosis, etc, resulting from poor diet and inadequate exercise.

    Traditional Understanding

    This formula contains herbs, which are used to warm, invigorate and enhance blood circulation in the chest and upper back. In Chinese medicine, blood flow is often explained through lack of warmth in the blood, as well as an accumulation of ‘phlegm’. Most herbs used to move the blood and remove phlegm are warm and pungent in nature.

    Pain is alleviated when proper blood circulation to an area is restored; increased warmth softens hardness and pungent dispersal reduces accumulation of fluids.
