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


Zong Gan Ling is used for acute conditions and is not for daily long-term immune building.  For an herbal formula designed for long-term immune enhancement, try Dr. Shen’s Jade Shield pills.

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.
