Product Description

Calm Shen: Calming


Calm Shen is calming blend of herbs for dogs and cats exhibiting nervousness, hyperactivity, discontentment, or responding to environmentally induced stress. Calm Shen helps dogs and cats maintain a normal and relaxed disposition while also helping them cope with external stresses.

Calm Shen is a great formula for behavioral problem management and may help to curb destructive behavior by helping dogs and cats maintain calmness. Calm Shen may also reduce hyperactivity by promoting a sense of relaxation and mental alertness without drowsiness. The herbs in Calm Shen help to maintain contentment during separation, travel, times of loud noises such as fireworks or thunderstorms, tension caused by changes in your pet's daily routine, or other situations that may cause anxiousness.

Calm Shen supports balanced behavior, a normal emotional balance, and provides help to dogs and cats that are restless due to the effects of normal environmental stress.

Behind the Formula

Chinese theory considers anxious behavior to be a disharmony within the body. Herbs can be used to manage this issue. Herbsmith Calm Shen is a combination of Chinese herbs that calm the spirit and harmonize the heart and kidney while preserving the dog's unique vitality.

In Chinese theory the heart not only pumps blood, but also houses the spirit and provides the ability to be settled in the world. In a healthy dog, the heart, a fire element (yang), and the kidney, a water element (yin), are balanced. Excessive emotional or physical stress and aging can diminish normal kidney function, which leads to the inability to control heart shen and subsequently allows nervousness to occur.

Anxious behavior may also occur due to an imbalance of the heart itself. Any depletion of heart yin or blood may exhibit signs such as heat or agitation. The herbs in Herbsmith Calm Shen are specially combined to support normal kidney function and tonify heart yin and blood, thus calming the spirit.
