Formula Rationale

Cranberry (man yue mei) enters the kidney, bladder, and large intestine; it promotes urination

and drains heat. Corn silk (yu mi xi), Indian plantain (che qian zi), and uva ursi (xiong guo) relieve

damp heat and assist in passing stones. Magnesium is an electrolyte and plays a critical role in

kidney detoxification; it can reduce the risk of forming kidney stones. Garlic (da suan) resolves

toxicity, strengthens the spleen, and reduces stagnation. Japanese knotweed (hu zhang) treats heat

and supports the bladder, kidneys, and liver. Achyranthes (niu xi) invigorates the blood and Qi.

Gardenia (zhi zi) is one of the premier heat-clearing herbs in the Materia Medica; it also treats

irritability, restlessness, and insomnia. Licorice (gan cao) is included for its harmonizing and

detoxification actions. Costus (mu xiang) was added to the classic Ba Zheng San formula by ancient

herbalist Zhu Dan Xi, to strengthen the transforming function of the bladder meridian. Chinese

rhubarb (zhi da huang), removes heat through the stool.
