Formula Rationale

Calm Spirit is based on the traditional formula, Heart Stabilizing Pills (Ding Xin Wan). It is intended to treat patients who present with deficiency of heart Yin. Individuals who experience prolonged mental stress often suffer insomnia, restlessness, loss of memory, dizziness, and sometimes constipation. The ingredients in this formula are aimed at: tonifying heart Qi and Yin: Biota (Bai Zi Ren), Polygala (Yuan Zhi); tonifying and nourishing the blood: Tang Kuei (Dang Gui); calming the heart and spirit: Biota, Fu-shen, Zizyphus (Suan Zao Ren), Amber (Hu Po); moistening the intestine: Biota, Tang Kuei, Ophiopogon (Mai Men Dong); removing heat from the heart: Ophiopogon. Codonopsis (Dang Shen) is added to tonify Qi in general and help generate fluids. Because stress may also induce anger, Amber and White Peony (Bai Shao) help remove liver stagnation.

The enzymes Catalase intercepts free radicals produced during stress. Free radicals damage body tissues, especially those of the heart and brain, and interfere with normal energy production and with memory. Other enzymes derived from Aspergillus assist in the digestion of food, which is often a problem when stress levels are high. Magnesium is a natural tranquilizer and vasodilator, and calms nervous activity; it also acts as a catalyst in the energy production that occurs in cell mitochondria. Taurine has been used to control heart arrhythmia and hypertension, particularly under conditions of stress.
