About Suan Zao Ren Tang

Also referred to as Zizyphus Combination, Suan Zao Ren Tang is a formula that is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to nourish Yin, liver, and heart blood, calm the spirit, relieve irritability, and clear deficiency heat. The first documented use of the formula dates back to circa 210 A.D., when Suan Zao Ren Tang is mentioned in the traditional Chinese pharmacopeia as a remedy created by Zhong-Jing Zhang. The formula owes its name to its main component, Suan Zao Ren, which is particularly favored for its moderate sedative attributes. The overall effect delivered by the product is a tranquilizing sensation that helps promote restful, undisturbed sleep and pacifies the nerves. It is an herbal medicine that addresses the root imbalance of the body and, like every Chinese remedy of this kind, it is non-addictive.

How Suan Zao Ren Tang Works

First discussed in the Synopsis of the Golden Chamber, an ancient Chinese text, Suan Zao Ren Tang is proven a powerful ally for those that wish to reduce anxiety and enhance their sleep quality. The formula is shown to improve NREM (non-rapid eye movement sleep) and stimulate serotonin receptors as a means to help the mind to calm and the body to relax and lose tension (and eventually improve sleep). The product is also effective at reducing heart palpitations, which are mainly caused by anxiety and stress. And, given that stress is the primary factor to a plethora of health problems, including insomnia, anxiety, neurosis, and related symptoms (i.e., heart palpitations, dizziness, fatigue, etc.), the traditional Chinese approach to help individuals handle stress is via selective herbal formulas like Suan Zao Ren Tang that calm the spirit and body alike, meditation, and balanced nutrition, which is probably the healthiest way to live life.

Suan Zao Ren Tang & Menopause

The product is also used today to treat sleep disorders caused by menopause (or overactive mind). Recent studies have found that sleep quality in women going through their menopausal years has significantly improved four weeks after taking the formula. It has also been evidenced that the formula has positive effects on night sweats related to the pre-menstrual syndrome.

Poor Sleep & Health Problems

Poor sleep puts your health at risk. A restless night will make you feel irritable and tired the next day, but it will not affect your health. However, if disturbed sleep or lack of sleep or poor sleep becomes a habit, it can significantly impact your mental capacities. You may experience brain fog, which will make it difficult for you to make decisions and concentrate. Gradually, the body becomes to go out of balance as the immune system slowly loses its ability to protect you, and you become grumpier by the day. Fatigue, lack of focus, and short temper are only the first symptoms. If lack of sleep continues for a long time, your overall health can be affected, making you prone to serious medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and obesity. Plus, it is scientifically proven that the more we deprive ourselves of a good night’s sleep, the more we shorten our life expectancy.
