Essential Defense is a time honored traditional Chinese formula used to support normal immune function after sudden changes in weather and with the change of the seasons. This formula is prepared using the centuries-old method of decoction, which produces a powerful, synergistic herbal combination in convenient tablet form. The addition of Isatis root and ginger rhizome supports the overall effectiveness of the formula.
