GB-6 combines ingredients for resolving the most commonly encountered disease mechanisms accounting for cholecystitis and cholelithiasis. The formula is based on an empirical research formula used currently in China. It is meant to be taken for a prolonged period of time between acute episodes in order to dredge the liver and facilitate the gallbladder, regulate the Qi, activate the blood, clear heat, eliminate dampness, disperse stagnation, and expel or dissolve stones. Melia (chuan lian zi) assists patients who suffer discomfort in the region of the gallbladder due to stress causing liver qi stagnation and poor diets leading to dampness and heat.
