Taikencyuto (TJ-100) is a Japanese herbal (Kampo) medicine that contains Zanthouxylum and piperitum, Zingiber officinale, Panax ginseng, and Saccharum granorum. TJ-100 enhances intestinal motility, is thought to promote acetylcholine and motilin release, and is a vanilloid receptor. Furthermore, TJ-100 increases intestinal blood flow and works as an antiinflammatory and anticytokine agent by producing calcitonin gene-related peptide and adrenomedullin. TJ-100 is considered to be useful for promoting intestinal motility and preventing ileus during the perioperative period. Further studies must be performed to confirm its usefulness in perioperative care.
