  • Reduces food stagnation and harmonizes the Stomach: for Stomach cold with food stagnation or accumulation, with such symptoms as epigastric and abdominal fullness or distention, lack of appetite, borborygmus, and diarrhea.

"The medicated leaven is fried until scorched black on the outside and yellow on the inside, then quickly cooled by spraying with cool water. This is also known as carbonized medicated leaven. This method of preparation greatly enhances its ability to reduce food stagnation and assist the digestion, and is strong enough to be used as a stand-alone herb for this purpose." - Bensky: Chinese Herbal Medicine Materia Medica
