Chinese Herbal Formulas: When Should I Expect To See Results?

Chinese Herbal Formulas: When Should I Expect To See Results?

Using Chinese herbal formulas to target health issues usually starts off well – you did your research on the correct supplementation, and you’re even feeling a little glow from your first few days of taking them. 

We don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade, but this brief burst doesn’t usually last. In order for supplements to have a marked effect, they need to be taken consistently, as directed. The more informed you are, the higher the chance your formula plan will have the effect you desire*. That’s where we come in. 

What’s in your Chinese herbal formulas? 

Our extensive understanding of Chinese herbs and their potential medicinal uses has allowed us to formulate the optimal dosage plan for each of our supplements. We know exactly what's in them, and we want you to know, too.

Our formulas contain a 5:1 concentration ratio of authentic Eastern herbs that differs by the bottle. Every single herb is 100% natural and responsibly sourced. While the ingredient list differs for each one, there are certain guarantees that remain the same. Each formula is:

  • Vegetarian 
  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Non-GMO
  • 100% recyclable bottle

Oh, and they're 4-9x stronger than other brands... we don’t like to boast, but we think that’s pretty cool.

How do Chinese herbal formulas work? 

Traditional Chinese Medicine asserts that most health concerns are the manifestation of qi imbalance in the Channel system or Zang-fu organ system. In order to target either of those systems, the herbal formula enters through specific meridians. 

Meridians make up the channel system, and each channel links to a specific zang-fu organ. For example, Chai Hu Shu Gan San is a formula that enters through the Liver meridian to bolster Liver organ qi by harmonising the blood.

This should in theory potentially help a range of related issues, like digestive issues, bloating, general discomfort and more. Chinese herbal formulas aren't designed to target specific symptoms – they're designed to focus on certain connected areas that we believe could be responsible for those symptoms.

Here are just a few examples of possible functions found across our range of supplements*: 

  • Target imbalanced qi
  • Improve mood
  • Soothe internal organs
  • Resolve stasis
  • Restore energy
  • Optimise blood flow
  • Fight bloating
  • Nourish the blood

There's a lot more, but we'd be here all day! Finding the right formula is the first step in attempting to ameliorate your issues. Luckily, we've made that as easy as possible...

I’ve got a specific problem I want to address with Chinese herbal formulas. How do I know which one to use?

We’ve made it extremely simple to find the formula best suited to target your specific health issue. Simply type the condition or symptom you’re experiencing into the search bar in the top-right of the screen, and the resulting page will populate with products that could help treat those specific areas*. 

For example, we entered the search term 'cold' and got 13 product matches. The rest were helpful blogs that feature information relating to that term, so if you're hoping to do a bit of further research before making your purchase, that should be your port of call.

Once you go through to the actual product page, you’ll find a far greater level of detail that goes into which issues it targets, how it attempts to do so, and which dosage schedule is advisable for that specific formula.

Here's a small list of a few search terms that will yield results on the website: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Migraine
  • Lungs
  • Energy
  • Fertility
  • Spleen

Shopping for herbal formulas is a lot easier if you know exactly what it is you want to target, and our aforementioned blog section is a great place to help dial in that knowledge. 

When should I expect to see results?

Potential positive effects from a herbal supplement depends on the supplement itself, and the individual dosage plan. But in general, it’s advisable to wait at least three months before expecting to see results.


Following the directions of use and taking your supplements for the required amount of time is the best way to get the most from them. It can be easy to crave an instant solution to troublesome issues.

But if you are able to exercise patience and allow things to take time, you might find it's a mindset that carries through to other, equally important aspects of your life.
