GI-337 Qing Wei  
Comment:
GI - 337 is a new herbal formula. In this formula Coptidis Rhizoma, Phellodendri Cortex and Rhei Rhizoma can reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract and aid digestion. Coptidis Rhizoma is able to increase the formation of bile. Both Rhei Rhizoma and Phellodendri Cortex increase peristalsis and treat peptic ulcers. Aurantii Fructus Immaturus increases both the intensity and frequency of peristalsis and is commonly used to treat digestive dysfunction with focal distension or gas.
