Summary of Modern Studies on Qihuang Yangyan (Young & Healthy Skin™) Capsule
Chinese Use: Beauty aid.
This product is indicated for beautification. The treating principles include replenishing and activating blood, ascending yang, invigorating qi, facilititating defecation and expelling toxicity.
Skin and hairs are governed by the lung, which is closely related to the spleen-kidney. Spleen, the acquired root of the body, is the origin of blood generation; the spleen is responsible for transportation and governs the muscles. The lung governs the qi over the whole body, and the kidney is the congenital root, they are all nourished by the transformed blood-qi from the spleen. The kidney governs the yang of the whole body, the deficiency of which would, in return, lead to deficiency of the lung and spleen. As long as the functions of the lung-spleen kidney are normal, the qi-blood will be flourishing and the whole body, robust with lustre complexion. In the recipe, Radix Angelica sinensis is sweet-warm and moistened, pertains to the spleen channel. Being an essential blood tonic, it not only replenishes blood, but also activates blood circulation and moistens the intestine. Radix Astragali seu Hedysari is sweet-warm, pertains to the spleen-lung channel. It nourishes the interior qi, ascends the splenic yang, invigorating lung-qi. Both used together benefit qi and blood. Since blood is the mother of qi, and qi, the head of blood, when qi activates, blood flows, hence, both activate the blood to flow: Radix Rhei, when used after processed, the property of bitter-cold is lowered. It drastically clears the static dross in the intestine, activates blood flow, eliminates blood stasis. Eventually, it facilitates defecation and toxic expelling and serves, with the above two, as the monarchal ingredients. Rhizoma Cimicifugae and Radix Puerariae are pungent-sweet-cool, pertain to the spleen-stomach channels, all of them ascend the yang qi of the body, thus strengthens the action of ascending yang and invigorating qi. When concerted with Radix Rhei, they both ascend and descend, to assist the lung for dredging the water passages and the large intestine functions normally. Herba Cistanches invigorates kidney yang as well as moistens the large intestine to facilitate defecation. It serves with the above two as the ministerial ingredients. Radix Polygoni multiflori, Colla Corii asini, Radix Rehmanniae preparata, when applied together, replenishes blood and nourishes yin, Radix Salviae miltiorrhizae is bitter-cold, capable of activating blood and cooling blood, regulating menstruation. When concerted with Rhizoma Liguslici chuanxiong, pungent warm, they activate blood and qi; Cortex Cinnamomi is pungent-sweet-heat, capable of supplementing fire and promoting yang, propelling qi-blood. All of these serve as the adjuvant and servant ingredients. Thus, the whole recipe yields both ascending and descending actions, benefiting and reducing actions, resulting in replenishing blood, activating blood flow, ascending yang, invigorating qi, facilitating defecation and expelling toxicity.
