Dr. Shen’s Jade Shield For Defensive Immunity
Also known as: YU PING FENG
Used to boost immune system and defend against disease. A potent version of the classic Jade Windscreen Formula.
Dr. Shen’s Jade Shield vs. Jade Windscreen
The traditional formula, Jade Windscreen (YU PING FENG WAN) has been augmented with the addition of Ligustrum lucidum (privit fruit / NU ZHEN ZI) and Cinammomi ramulus (cinammon twig / GUI ZHI).
We believe that Ligustrum expands the immune supporting property of the astragalus in the formula, while at the same time reducing the drying properties of both the atractylodes (BAI ZHU) and the ledebouriella (FANG FENG). Replacing some of these two with cinnamon twig (GUI ZHI) also tends to reduces dryness. These changes makes the formula more suitable for long-term use, especially for those with Blood Deficiency, YIN Deficiency, or dry constitutions.

Traditional Chinese Medicine is powerful and reliable, but it can be complex. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment aren’t recommended for chronic, recurring, or serious illness.
At Dr. Shen’s, we use the finest grades of herbs. We import all of our herbs whole, rather than as powders, so we can inspect them for authenticity and quality. We screen for mold, metals, and microorganisms. We test tablets for dissolvability and coat them for easy swallowing. Our excipients are minimal, always natural, and always vegetarian. All ingredients are listed on compliant labels.
