Sheng Mai San, also known as Restore the Pulse or Ginseng & Schisandra Formula, is a classic formulation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It consists of just three herbs: Mai Men Dong (Ophiopogon Root), Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra Berry), and Bai Shen (Ginseng root).

The famous herbalist Li Shi Zhen developed this formula based on his research into improving Qi (life force) and fluids. Originally featured in the medical text, Ben Cao Gang Mu, the formula continues to be used at TCM clinics today for a wide range of syndromes relating to Qi and Yin deficiency. 


Sheng Mai San may offer potential benefit in supporting the immune system, particularly when cold and flu symptoms linger or develop into chronic fatigue. With its natural energy-boosting properties, Sheng Mai San can help replenish energy, bolster immunity, and support overall wellness.

TCM practitioners often prescribe Sheng Mai San in cases of summer heat and respiratory-related conditions that are chronic in nature. These symptoms may include chronic cough, shortness of breath, and chronic fatigue with a floating, rapid, and weak pulse.
