HOW IT WORKS
This TCM concentrate contains the same herbs found in Nervous Fatigue formula but in a highly concentrated blend. Traditional Chinese Medicine would consider this a fire-enhancing formula. Its Chinese name yang xin translates to “nurture the heart.” Weakness in the fire element usually manifests itself in the digestive, cardiovascular or reproductive systems. Biota seed contains aromatic compounds that have a sedative effect. These compounds also have a mild laxative effect. Jujuba seed contains bitter compounds that help promote relaxation. Schisandra fruit, a supporting herb in this formula, allows the body to respond quickly to stress, thus increasing the body’s capacity to work. Its bitter compounds also support circulation. Ginseng acts as an adaptogen to help maintain balance in the body and help the body adapt to stress.
WHY NERVOUS FATIGUE TCM?
Our Chinese herbal blends are artfully crafted to carefully follow the ancient principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine that have been practiced for millennia. The many ethically sourced botanicals in Nervous Fatigue were selected for their ability to support and balance the body in times of occasional stress.
For more than 35 years, we’ve partnered with the same incredible vendor to collaborate with farmers in traditional communities to ethically source the finest Chinese herbs for these formulas. And we’ve conducted multiple on-site audits throughout the years to re-verify the quality of both their facility and their herbs. Our farmers are deeply attached to the land they’ve lived on and worked for generations, and they practice regenerative farming methods to preserve it for future use.
