Reformulation Notes: Tian Ma Wan is an old and noteworthy formula from the Lanzhou Foci / Minshan brand. For many years it has included a very small amount (0.9%) of Xiang Fu / Cyperus rotundus rhizome. Xiang Fu was used to invigorate the Qi within this tonifying formula. While Tian Ma Wan was being made into a Plum Flower Classic teapill we had the opportunity to reevaluate the formula, and it was brought to our attention by the Foci factory that the original formulation of Tian Ma Wan contained a small amount of Fu zi/ Aconitum carmichaeli root (instead of Xiang fu.) We chose to return to the original formulation because of its long history of use and efficacy. The addition of this small amount of Fu zi increases Tian Ma Wan’s functions in warming the channels, dispersing cold and unblocking the channels, while slightly augmenting the Yang within this Yin tonifying combination.
