5 Ways Yu Ping Feng San Can Support the Immune System

Chinese medicine doctors, acupuncturists and consumers worldwide turn to Yu Ping Feng San as the natural and effective way to boost immunity. This formula is comprised of three simple yet powerful herbs that boost the immune system, including the trendy Astragalus Root, which is considered “the best immune tonic herb in stabilizing and strengthening the protective ‘Qi’ in your body” in original Chinese medicine texts.  DAO Labs has modernized this incredible formula, making it more accessible, easy to understand, and complementing the natural flavors with essences of ginger and pear for even further immune boosting support.  We’ve lamented at length over how this formula has kept those of us in our office healthy, even when everyone around us is sick. We think this is a formula everyone should keep on hand, and here are five reasons we think you’ll agree!

5 reasons to always keep Yu Ping Feng San on hand:

1) When people around you are sick

Whether it’s kids or co-workers, there’s nothing worse than hearing people coughing around you.  Guard yourself with Yu Ping Feng San.  There's a reason Chinese authorities relied on this herbal combination during the 2003 outbreak of SARS across China and Hong Kong - it works.  Have family who visit even when they’re sick?  One of our favorite customers told us: 

“Kept us safe during Thanksgiving.  We have family who comes into town sick every Thanksgiving and they get the rest of sick as well. This year with Immunity Support no one got sick and the out of town people got better!

To use this as a preventative, take 1-2 packets a day when you’re around others who are contagious.  Not sure if they’re contagious? Take a sachet daily anyway, just to be safe.

2) At the first sign your immune system is weak

This is the time you need to have Immunity Support in your medicine cabinet!  One customer writes:

“Never get a cold again.  I was always getting colds in every season until a friend recommended this product. Since taking I've hardly had a sniffle. I take it at least every other day, it's natural ingredients and tastes good. You'll be pleased with your purchase.”

Take 2-3 a day for a couple of days, and you’ll give your immune system the boost it needs to stay healthy.  

3) When getting on a plane or travel in general

Airplanes are germ factories.  When was the last time the seat was sanitized?  There are no cleaning requirements from the FAA, and airlines are focused on turning their planes around as quickly as possible - not to mention all of that recycled air and close quarters with 200 strangers. In fact, according to an article last fall in the Wall Street Journal*, "medical studies have shown that air travelers face higher rates of infection [than non-travelers]: one study pegged the increased risk of catching a cold at 20%". It only makes sense that people are desperate to protect themselves to stay healthy - but next time you think about reaching for that Vitamin C packet, think about these three natural, powerful herbs that people have been using for preventative health for hundreds of years.

4) Pollen season/ragweed season

Our customers who struggle with pollen in the spring and ragweed in the fall are blown away by how quickly and effectively Immunity Support stops their sneezing and runny noses.  The effects are almost instantaneous. One customer writes:

“Goodbye daily allergy pills.  I replaced my daily allergy medication with Immunity Support this spring and have been very satisfied with the results!”

Our Co-Founder and CEO, John G. McGarvey, routinely turns to Immunity Support when pollen season starts to get the best of him.  In this article, he writes: “the herbs begin to work their magic in fewer than 20 minutes and simply make me feel good.”

Take 1-2 packets a day as a preventative, or as needed when you start to feel cloudy-headed.

5) Pets & dust

Yu Ping Feng San and the herbs behind our Immunity Support formula have been studied by the National Center for Biotechnology Information as a way to treat Allergic Rhinitis (the diagnosis for symptoms affecting the nose).  The results: Yu Ping Feng San is effective at treating Allergic Rhinitis, and was well tolerated by the participants.  One of our customers agrees, writing:

“Very pleased.  I noticed results after the first day of use. I was very congested and started clearing within a short period of time. Use it now before having to sit in large groups where germs linger.”

Traditional formulas like Yu Ping Feng San are extremely powerful, but in many cases not very tasty.  They’re available in pills and granules, but granules tend to be more effective and work more quickly, which is important when you’re experiencing a runny nose!  Our granules have been upgraded by complementing the natural herbs with essences of pear, ginger, rosemary, and honey. Not only do these flavors make the herbs more enjoyable to drink, but they were also selected because of their inherent healing properties.  Pears are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C; ginger helps to balance the immune system and restore it to proper functioning; honey helps transmit the benefits of ginger, and may also boost the body’s immune system by aiding the production of white blood cells; and rosemary’s antioxidant compounds help make a secondary line of defense behind the body’s own immune system.
