What is Huan Shao Dan?

Huan Shao Dan, also known as Youth Return Formula, contains 16 herbs to assist in male reproductive health.

What are the benefits of Huan Shao Dan?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Huan Shao Dan primarily aids in rejuvenating the Kidney and Spleen. This formulation assists by tonifying the blood and Qi, fortifying Yang, and nourishing Yin.

From a modern perspective, Huan Shao Dan is believed to promote male fertility health by improving low libido. Accompanying symptoms may include fatigue, low back pain, seminal emissions, forgetfulness, and disturbed sleep.

What is the dosage and method for taking Huan Shao Dan?

The generally recommended dosage of Huan Shao Dan in capsule form is four capsules, two to three times daily; or as loose granules, 4.5 g mixed with hot water, 2-3 times per day. However, always follow your healthcare provider's instructions, as the dosage can vary based on your condition and response to treatment.

Please see What's the Recommended Dosage for Granule Herbs? for more information.

When can I expect to see results?

Huan Shao Dan typically starts to take effect within days, however, fertility treatments may last several months’ duration. Like all treatments, its efficacy can vary from person to person.

Does Huan Shao Dan have any side effects?

While Huan Shao Dan is generally considered safe for most people, it can cause side effects in some individuals. Women who are pregnant, nursing, or postpartum as well as people with liver disease, should avoid or use Huan Shao Dan with caution.

As with any Chinese herb, we recommend consulting with a qualified practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) about Huan Shao Dan before any course of treatment is started.
