Bo Ying Compound – Keep It or Loose It?

July 6, 2012

Most practitioners who treat children (including their own) would be familiar with a product called Bo Ying Compound. It’s readily available and is manufactured in Hong Kong by a GMP accredited company. You can buy this product from various places, because these days, everyone wants to sell Chinese patents. But that’s an entirely different topic.

Not all ingredients are disclosed – not on the product box or the accompanying product information sheet. It states that “other” [as in other ingredients] 26.59%. That’s almost a third of products not disclosed. But it works well, it’s very effective and treats the onset of a cold (with various symptoms such as: fever, sneezing, nasal discharge, cough and phlegm, indigestion and poor appetite, restlessness and crying at night, etc.) in a baby or toddler rapidly. The only contraindication is a G6PD deficiency (G6PD deficiency is an inherited condition in which the body doesn’t have enough of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps red blood cells function normally).  

We are in two minds about this product because we don’t understand why not all ingredients are openly disclosed? Is it still the old story about keeping secret formulas to yourself? Well, we do understand that but unfortunately the product is not listed with the TGA either.

Based on Bo Ying Comppound, we have created a transparent and vegetarian product where dosages of individual herbs should be customised based on the presentation. It’s called Bo Ying Orange and you can find it online on our database if you are a registered practitioner.

We feel that Chinese herbs should be in the hands of Chinese medicine practitioners who are trained and accredited to prescribe those herbs. Everyone does what they are good at, this is the optimum for best results and progress.
