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 (bai zi ren), 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 (mai men dong), codonopsis (dang shen) is added to tonify Qi in general and help generate fluids. Because stress may also induce anger, amber (hu po) and white peony (bai shao) help remove liver stagnation.


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.


Clinical Notes

1. This formula should not be relied on as the sole reliever of stress. The cause of stress must also be addressed

2. Results are usually seen within one hour of administration
