  • Supports movement of stagnant QI ZHI

  • Long-term constipation (chron. constipation)

Description according to traditional Chinese medicine: This is a modification of the original traditional Chinese herbal mixture MA ZI REN WAN, adjusted to meet today’s needs. It is a very effective mixture for the treatment of chronic constipation with dry or hard stools, especially in old age, in little children and in rehabilitation. These problems are among civilization diseases and are in particular caused by improper composition of food, insufficient supply of liquids, stress and lack of movement. Common accompanying symptoms include dry feeling in the mouth, thirst, dry skin, finger nails and hair. The essence of treatment in terms of Chinese medicine is to “lubricate” the intestine using oily plants. The mixture is not addictive.

Packaging: 100 tablets / 30 g (100% natural, natural cellulose max. 1% is the only binding agent; made from concentrated herbs at a ratio of 5:1, i.e. 5 g of dried herbs are used per gram of herbal tablets)

Dosage: 3 times daily 4 tablets, children over 3 years of age 3 times daily 2 tablets

Ingredients (1 g is made from 5 g herbs):

  • Huo ma ren (Cannabis Seeds)
  • Sheng  di huang (Chinese Foxglove Root)
  • Tao ren (Peach Kernel)

  • Hei zhi ma (Black Sesame Seed)
  • Hou po (Magnolia Bark)

Each batch of herbs in our products is tested in the accredited laboratory for medicines Phytax in Schlieren, Switzerland, to identify herbs, but also heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, and copper), bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella, total number of bacteria), mould, yeasts and aflatoxins. Our company TCM Herbs is the only supplier in the Czech Republic to test each batch of herbs for all herbal tables, among others for 511 types of pesticides (4 groups) because pesticides today become a worldwide problem, especially in products from the so-called Third World. Customers, in the belief that they use herbal preparations, are often, by contrast, “contaminated” with other undesirable “chemicals”.

Each laboratory is different

A laboratory for dietary supplements is obliged to verify only the presence of heavy metals, mould and bacteria – but does not determine the content of pesticides. A certified laboratory for medicines, on the other hand, also identifies individual herbs and in particular tests the entire range of pesticides (at least 500 types and more). There are only a few laboratories like that in the EU and the price is adequately high. It is therefore very important today to know which laboratory tests the dietary supplement and what the tests focus on, if each batch and each herb or just a sample are tested, how many pesticides, how many additives and how many additional binding agents the product contains, etc. – otherwise consumers could be easily deceived and disappointed… (for details read Safety and quality of TCM Herbs products)

The above implies that herbal tablets and drinks of TCM Herbs are, in terms of quantity (concentration of herbs in the mixture is 5 times higher, i.e. that 1 g of a herbal tablet equals 5 g of raw herbs) and quality (absolutely unprecedented testing of each batch), among the best products we can imagine and enjoy in the area of today’s Chinese medicine and natural medicine at all!
