Maxitone originated from the first Chinese patent prescription “Tai Ping Formulas of welfare dispensary” disseminated by the Chinese state in the Song Dynasty. It is consisting of Four Gentlemen Formula, a basic formula for tonifying Qi with a combination of Si Wu Tang, a basic formula for nourishing Blood, and the adding of astragalus and cinnamon, nourishing Yang herbs. It has the effect of warming and nourishing Qi and Blood, and is suitable for patients with both Qi and Blood Deficiency but also with Yang Deficiency and Cold. This formula is mostly used to treat anaemia after giving birth and its typical symptoms, and can also help with amenorrhoea. This formula is warm in nature, therefore not suitable for people with Yin Deficiency or Heat.
