Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Tang
The name Gastrorest is from the Latin word meaning "belly" and the middle English word "rest" which can be defined as "to be free from that which harasses or disturbs; to be quiet or still; to be undisturbed". This aptly describes this formula's ability to put the digestive system to rest when it is being disturbed by the stomach flu, gastritis or food poisoning.
