Breathe Clear, based on the classic Chinese herbal formula Zhi Sou San, which translates as “Stop Cold Formula,” is a powerful cough formula. It can be used on its own, for both short-term and long-term coughs, or in conjunction with Bounce Back for other cold season ailments such as fever, chills and aches. The herbs in Breathe Clear naturally help open your chest and airways, minimizing phlegm, and suppress a cough.

Breathe Clear tablets are conveniently packaging in individual “daily packets” that contain your daily dose of herbs. Simply order the number of days you feel your body needs based on the symptoms you are experiencing (or typically experience if ordering to keep on-hand), and let the heritage of Chinese herbal medicine help your body recover naturally.

When Does Breathe Clear Work Best?

Breathe Clear tablets work best for coughs, phlegm, and the throat irritations associated with a cough. Unlike your typical over the counter solutions, which give only temporary relief, Breathe Clear works to mobilize your body’s own natural restorative abilities, leading to gradual, sustained, and lasting improvement.

The Best Time to use Breathe Clear is:

  • During the onset of a cough
  • To increase respiratory strength
  • Help clear phlegm
  • In conjunction with Bounce Back

Each pouch of Breathe Clear contains your daily dose of tablets. There are 2 servings of 3 pills in each pouch (6 tablets per pouch). We recommend taking one serving in the morning (3 tablets) and one serving later in the day (another 3 tablets). When symptoms are at their worst, you can take an additional 3 tablets on the same day (do not exceed 9 tablets in a single day). A typical course is approximately 3-14 days.


Bounce Back can be taken on its own, but it is also designed to work together with our other Cold Season formula, Breathe Clear. Together, these formulas provide a unique two-step approach that can help your body rebalance and revitalize from most of your winter season needs:

Step One: From a Chinese herbal theory perspective, cold season needs usually begin on the “exterior” or the surface of the body, what we typically call a “head cold,” presenting with fever, chills, head and body aches, nasal congestion, and a scratchy throat. At this stage, we recommend you use Bounce Back to mobilize your body’s natural response and accelerate your path to rejuvenation.

Step Two: If your condition moves “inward” from a Chinese medicine perspective, it typically lodges in the airways, becoming what one might typically recognize as a “chest cold,” with phlegm, an irritated throat, and a cough. At this stage, we recommend that you add Breathe Clear to your regimen.

Final wrap-up: Ideally, this two step process will help your body rebalance quickly. In some situations, however, all the “head cold” complaints will resolve and only a cough will remain. This is a great time to use Breathe Clear alone to fully revitalize and rebalance.
