Formulation Basis

H&F Anti-Distention Capsule is formulated for the treatment of functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID). FGID do not display pathological abnormalities and can only be diagnosed by the presence of gastritis under the oesophagogastroduodenoscopy. However the symptoms of FGID are very significant and can adversely affect normal daily activities, such as pain and distension in the abdomen which are aggravated after the ingestion of food. By combining many years of teachings with Prof. Zhou Xuewen and the incidence and prevalence of FGID in Singapore, it is found that the root cause for FGID (pathological presence of gastritis and display of abnormal gastrointestinal motility) is the vacuity and weakness of the spleen and stomach. With the supplementation and enrichment of the spleen and stomach to improve the gastrointestinal motility, the rectification and downbearing of qi to improve gastric emptying, and the clearing of heat and resolution of toxins to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria, the Anti-Distention Capsule achieves the goal of simultaneously treating the root and the tip and removing the etiologies.[1-2]
