The herbal formula most suited to help maintain the strength of collagen, pelvic floor and core muscles is a Chinese formula known as "Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan" or Central Qi Invigorator. In Traditional Chinese Medicine this formula is said to balance the Central Qi, so that the body can utilize the Yang (male) energy on which strength depends.
Some branded products can help to ease the pain of a hernia by reducing inflammation or flatulence, or by treating constipation. But Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan is the only one which Chinese Medicine experts recommend for maintaining collagen health.
Our chosen brand, Greatwall, is a high quality product. It is not made by grinding up the ingredients into a powder and compressing them into a pill. It is instead made from extracts which concentrate the soluble portion.
