This is our classic GCG formula, but stronger and in capsule form: ideal for people who want to take GCG tincture in a non-alcoholic form.
- Gold Coin Grass (GCG) is the primary ingredient of our tincture, which is a literal translation of the Chinese name “Jin Qian Cao”. This herb is also known as Lysimachiae Herba or Herba Desmodii Styrachifolii. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed to “clear damp heat in the liver and gallbladder”, among other uses.
- Bupleurum is the secondary ingredient of our tincture, which is also known as Chai Hu or Bupleuri Radix. The literal English translation of the name is “Twigs of the Barbarians”. In traditional Chinese medicine, Chai Hu is believed to strengthen the immune system and “open the liver”.
- Rhubarb is a “helper” ingredient of our tincture, which is also known as Da Huang or Rhei Radix et Rhizoma. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed to “clear heat” and “invigorate the blood”.
