LJZT Formula known in Pinyin as Liu Jun Zi Tang
In English it is called Six Gentleman or Six Gentle Pet Combination
Provided as 100 grams of Extract granules
This classic Chinese formula was first created by Chen Zi-Ming in 1237. It is a very effective formula to be in use for such a long period of time.
In Chinese medicine, it is known to stregnthen the Spleen (pancreas) and Stomach and to regulate the qi and to stop rebellious stomach qi from rising. Often, rebellious stomach qi is associated with burping or with vomiting.
Often, when the Spleen and Stomach have qi deficiencies it is accompanied by dampness and phlegm, a lack of appetite, lethargy, exercise intolerance, fatigue, loose stools, nausea, vomiting, productive cough of white watery phlegm, and a pale wet tongue and deep weak pulse.

Six GentleMen (or Pets) is one of the most widely-used Traditional Chinese herbal Spleen tonics to address digestive issues, such as low appetite, nausea and vomiting. This formula has found to be effective support for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and experiencing a loss of appetite or digestive issues. The classic formula has been modified by the addition of ginger root and Chinese dates, which are known for their ability to create appetite. There have been no studies showing that this formula interferes with the effectiveness of chemotherapy. In fact, due to its ability to overcome some of the side-effects that are cited by pet owners as reasons to discontinue chemotherapy, this formula is used widely with good effect.
This formula is provided in a concentrated form in "Extract Granules". This is the same concentrated form that is in the capsules of Stasis Breaker and Wei Qi Booster. Most pets will accept the herby spicy taste readily, but for those who are reluctant to eat this powder with their regular diet, using a bribe food such as raw meat or someting else very tasty to disguise the taste can help. Also, if you have a treat ready when you give this herb mixed with a small amount of food to hide it, you will encourage your dog to swallow it quickly so they can get to the second treat. (Sneaky little manuever here) The powder can be placed into capsules, although that is not available on this website, and it should be administered to your pet according to the following administration guide:
