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.

Suan Zao Ren Tang 100 capsules Reviews

I’ve only just started using this product. 2 capsules before bed and have found I sleep deeper and am less restless. Like a previous review I still need my usually prescribed lunesta to help me fall asleep but I’m finding I don’t wake up and need additional dose of prescribed meds like I used too. I fall back asleep. I’m hoping to this will help me get completely off lunesta eventually. It does not make me feel sedated but more relaxed and at ease in the evening.

I was recommended this supplement by an acupuncturist to treat what she diagnosed as "liver blood deficiency." My primary symptom for seeking treatment and why I continue to use this supplement is insomnia. I take two capsules twice daily with a mug of warm water or tea. While I still have chronic difficulty easily falling asleep on most nights and also regularly use other remedies, I have not had the detrimental levels of insomnia (i.e. tossing and turning till morning) since regularly taking Suan Zao Ren Tang. I continue taking it for maintenance purposes mainly because I notice a sharp decrease in sleep quality when I stop for several days. Hopefully someday the insomnia symptoms will go away entirely without medicinal treatments, but until then this stuff helps.

I was prescribed this herb by my acupuncturist for sleep problems. It works very well. First thing in years that helps me sleep through the night!

By combining this with time-released melatonin, I sleep like a baby every night.

I have known about this formula for years, and I started taking it again in conjunction with another (Ginseng and Zyziphus) for an acute sleep disorder and for stress recovery. It is a great product, no side effects, and it stabilizes one's "spirit" as well, i.e. feeling grounded and calm.

I started taking this formula because of a recommendation by my acupuncturist who was treating me for a-fib, among other things. The impact on this condition was slow to take effect, so I didn't really realize how much it was helping until I ran out of it on a longer trip overseas. That was when I really saw the difference, and it was quite noticable. I have never stopped taking it since (about a year and a half now). I also have to say that Acupuncture Atlanta has been a solid source for the formula, always having it in stock in the quantities that I need, and quick to ship. Availability has been spotty here where I live, even with the acupuncturist.

I started taking this product when it was mentioned on Dr. Oz for helping with sleep. I really feel that it is helping. I seem to be able to stay asleep & sleep more restfull having taken this. Thank you so much.

I've been having heart palpitations for a number of years, that seem to be triggered by food sensitivities and a thyroid problem. The cardiologist had wanted to put me on a beta blocker, but I was reluctant because it can cause extreme low blood pressure (an thus fainting). My acupuncturist recommended the Suan Zao Tang to normalize my heartbeat and told me it had no side effects. I am happy to report he was correct! It works amazingly well with noticeable effects by day two of taking it. Now, I am able to stop taking the Suan Zao Ren Tang for long spells, and then when something triggers the palpitations I can start taking it and get my heartbeat under control that same day. I've had no side effects. It should go without saying, but just in case, if you currently take heart medications do not alter them without speaking to your doctor.
