Nourish Yin, build Blood, clear Deficiency Heat, calm and astringe Shen.

Mental exhaustion

Mental exhaustion due to Yin and Blood deficiency.
Insomnia, restlessness or irritability due to Yin deficiency with unchecked, ascending Yang.
Anxiety or panic attacks due to Yin and Blood deficiency with Deficiency Heat.

Believed to have been developed by a legendary Buddhist Monk, Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan was originally prescribed for mental fatigue and anxiety following excessive meditation and study. The formula is rich in Yin tonics, which collectively nourish, moisten, cool and calm an exhausted body and mind. Other indications of Yin deficiency should be present, such as a dry mouth or throat, mouth ulcers, night sweats, dry stool, poor memory or palpitations.

A systemic review into the safety and efficacy of this formula revealed promising results in the treatment of insomnia, and it has also been shown to reduce anxiety levels, As a large formula with many ingredients, mechanism of action remains unclear. One study demonstrates a regulating influence on intestinal flora; however, this is likely just one aspect of a broader systemic effect.

Since the heavy tonics which make up the bulk of the formula can be hard to digest, Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan is contraindicated in patients who are chronically fatigued, have a poor digestive system or other symptoms of Yang deficiency. Clear Yin deficiency syndrome should be ascertained first.

Hyperthyroidism, and various manifestations of heart disease may also respond well to this formula.

Highest Grade Herbs

After each individual ingredient has passed our rigourous three tier testing policy, it is then carefully prepared according to the classical texts before forming into our wonderful and unique honey pearls. We are fanatic when it comes to correct species identification, correct dose and administration of these ancient formulas we are reviving for the modern world.

Traditional Understanding

Our honey pearls are raw, unique, and based on a 2000 year old preparation method that optimises the absorption of herbal medicine. By making our formulas into Honey Pearls, the active constituents of the ingredients are absorbed slowly and gradually over time, making them highly bioavailable and slow to release.
