Gan Mao Ling by Plum Flower has long been used in China to help the body relieve stress from symptoms associated with both wind-cold and wind-heat.
According to Traditional Chinese herbalism theory, germs are abundant in the air we breathe and the "wind" blowing into our nose and mouth may drive the pathogen deep into the body. Chinese herbalists believe that germs remain on the "surface" for a short period of time after entering the body. It is during this critical time that herbal formulas such as Gan Mao Ling can be most effective in helping boost the body's immunity.
