What is Wen Dan Tang?

Wen Dan Tang, also known as Warm the Gallbladder Decoction, or Bamboo & Poria Combination, is traditionally used to address phlegm-heat type disorders.

First described in the 11th-century medical text, "Treatise on Cold Damage Disorders," this formula was developed by the famous scholar-physician, Zhang Zhongjing. 

What are the benefits of Wen Dan Tang?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Wen Dan Tang is used to harmonize the gallbladder and stomach, clear phlegm, and calm the shen (spirit).

Modern uses of Wen Dan Tang include helping with anxiety, depression, vertigo, and chronic mental disorders. Its calming properties may assist with sleep disorders and support cognitive health. It is also sometimes recommended for digestive health.

What is the dosage and method for taking Wen Dan Tang?

The generally recommended dosage of Wen Dan Tang 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.

Wen Dan Tang typically starts to take effect within days. However, like all treatments, its efficacy can vary from person to person.

Does Wen Dan Tang have any side effects?

While Wen Dan Tang 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 Wen Dan Tang with caution.

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