Cardiovascular Support 2

  • Cardiovascular Support 2 (Ge Xia Zhu Yu Tang)

    Herbal CreaturesCardiovascular Support 2 is a high potency formula containing herbs traditionally used to treat palpable abdominal masses.

    A blend of herbs used for:

    • Palpable abdominal masses, tumours
    • Inflammatory conditions of the liver, jaundice
    • How it works  

      Cardiovascular Support 2 is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Ge Xia Zhu Yu Tang, used to treat pain and swelling in the region below the diaphragm, fixed abdominal pain, hardness or palpable masses.

      It can also be used in the treatment of various abdominal tumours, acute and chronic liver disease, and for the relief of persistent abdominal pain post-surgery.

      Traditional understanding

      Pain in a fixed-location, or hard, palpable masses are, in Chinese Medicine, a sign of blood stasis. The herbs used have the ability to invigorate blood circulation, dispel this stagnation, and alleviate pain. As the herbs in this formula are primarily working to improve blood circulation, the formula will also elicit benefits on the cardiovascular system as a whole.
