Lablab is often used to treat spleen qi deficiency, a condition characterized by fatigue, bloating, and indigestion. It is believed to nourish and strengthen the spleen, helping to improve digestion and boost energy levels.
Lablab should not be taken by individuals with cold or fever and chills, as it may exacerbate these conditions.
The primary treatment principle for lablab is to clear summerheat.
