Herbs for AF - Wenxin Keli - anyone tried it ?

There is a herbal medicine called Wenxin Keli, developed by the Chinese , specifically for AF /

One can read a lot about it on the web, but one link among many is: (copy and paste into your browser)

Has anyone tried it ?  It's available from mainland china via Hong Kong,  I was thinking, nothing ventured. nothing gained...but thought i would seek any others who may have given it a try...

According to one page I read about it, it states:  "WenXin KeLi, the first state-sanctioned traditional Chinese medicine-based herbal remedy for arrhythmia"

I do not post this as an endorsement, I not tried it,,,but I don't see many (never seen any in fact)  herbal remedies come up  specifically for AF,. so if nothing else it is worth a comment, hence my post.

My apologies last post, I just searched the posting on this form and see it has been mentioned by others on this forum. I typed the name wrong when i tired before my post, and that is why I saw no postings.....


We must recommend that anybody considering alternative medicines to discuss it with your GP or consultant before commencing them. It may or may not be appropriate for your condition or prescriptions. 


I certainly would not touch this herb. How would you ever know what it really is.

It's not a herb, it's a mixture of different substances.  It's so far impossible to get in the UK unless you buy over the net from a Chinese supplier. UK based TCM people won't have heard of it. I looked but didn't buy. If I'd have found a UK based TCM practitioner that had heard of it I would have done. There's a fair amount of internet literature supporting it but it's very new, but we're all different and there's not one size that fits all.


Hi I have tried wenxin keli it had mashed worms added to it so I never bought it again.But I would like to know if there is one that was just herbs
