Best Herbs for Constipation
When Marco Polo returned from China, he brought with him various herbs and spices. Among them, rhubarb was the most important as constipation was widespread in Europe at that time due to dietary deficiencies of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Dr. Shen’s Rhubarb Pills are for constipation caused by deficiency of YIN or Blood. They are reliable, safer than senna, and more suitable for long-term use. It’s a tonic (strengthening) formula with a laxative effect. Our product is an an herbal blend that brings out the best qualities of Chinese rhubarb.

This herbal laxative, known as RUN CHANG WAN, meaning “moisten the intestines pills” is a classic formula that moistens the intestines and strengthens the blood. It acts as a mild laxative to treat constipation associated with dry bowels, insufficient bodily fluids, and/or deficiency of the blood.

The Dr. Shen version of this formula substitutes MAI MEN DONG Ophthipogon Tuber, for HUO MA REN cannabis seeds, making the formula more tonifying and also safer for long-term use. Unlike most senna based formulas, this formula is actually good for you, as it tonifies blood and YIN.

When to Use Rhubarb

  • Occasional Constipation
  • Dry Stool
  • Regularity


3 tablets, every three or four hours; or as prescribed by your healthcare provider.  


Avoid during pregnancy and nursing. If constipation lasts more than a week, consult a physician. Using any laxative during pregnancy should be avoided.

Traditional Chinese Medicine, when used properly, is powerful and reliable, but it can also be complex. Self-diagnosis and self-treatment aren’t recommended for chronic, recurring, or serious illness.
