A Long-standing Historical Legend

Pien Tze Huang is exclusively produced by Zhangzhou PienTzeHuang Pharmaceutical .Ltd. and its legendary history is always on the lips of countless people.According to research, in the late Ming Dynasty, a royal physician couldn’t tolerate the tyranny of the imperial court and fled away to Zhangzhou with the secret recipe of Pien Tze Huang. He lived in seclusion in the Pu-Shan Yan Temple and shaved his head to become a monk. Based on the imperial secret recipe, the former physician used precious Chinese medicinal materials to make pill lozenges, including first-rate musk, calculus bovis, pseudo-ginseng and snake bile, etc. The lozenges which were suitable for both internal and external application could specially treat heat toxin, swelling and pain. At that time, there were many sick people nearby; the monk promoted the above-mentioned medicine and cured all the patients. Since then, the imperial secret prescription struck roots here. Back then, Pien Tze Huang lozenges were cut into slices for patients to take; only one slice each time could cure heat toxin, swelling and pain. Therefore, this medicine is known as “Pien Tze Huang” (“Tze” is a modal particle in South Fujian dialect; “Huang” means heat toxin, swelling and pain). For this reason, Pien Tze Huang is hailed as a “Buddhist Holy Medicine”. MORE >>

The monk later passed on the recipe and production techniques to the abbot on his deathbed and asked him to keep the recipe as a secret. Since then, Pien Tze Huang had been handed down from generation to generation within the temple as the treasure of the temple until the late Qing Dynasty and the early Republic of China. Later, the temple gradually became dilapidated and finally collapsed; the last abbot resumed secular life and began to make and sell Pien Tze Huang in a tea house called XinYuan just outside the east gate of Zhangzhou. Thus Pien Tze Huang was introduced to the folk communities. Its unique curative effect was highly praised by everyone and worshiped as “the treasure of the house” by the south Fujian people. When locals paid visits to their elders and relatives, it was a habit for them to give Pien Tze Huang as a gift. What’s more, overseas Chinese introduced this medicine into the Southeast Asia and saved a lot of people’s lives. That’s why Pien Tze Huang enjoys a lofty status in the Southeast Asia and is known as an almighty medicine.
