Geng Nian An Pian (Geng Nian An Wan, Menoplease™, 更年安丸),
is an all natural Chinese herbal supplement traditionally used for symptoms associated with menopause.
Geng Nian An Pian is especially helpful for hot flashes, restlessness and insomnia.
What does it do?
Menopause is a normal physiological change that typically occurs in women between the ages of 45-55 when the monthly
menstrual cycle stops. Menopause is considered complete when a period of 1 year has elapsed without menstruation.
This change is usually gradual and is caused when a woman’s ovaries stop producing eggs. This creates changes in the balance of
the hormones estrogen and progesterone and may cause symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweating,
insomnia, mood swings, restlessness etc..
Estrogen is considered a Yin type hormone in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The decrease of estrogen in the body caused by the ovaries
no longer producing eggs creates a relative deficiency of Yin, often resulting in bothersome Heat signs. Geng Nian An Pian
helps to minimize hot flashes, restlessness and insomnia by clearing Heat from the body caused by Yin deficiency,
nourishing Yin (especially of the Kidneys which are closely associated with aging) and calming the mind.
Geng Nian An Pian is also useful in addressing other signs of Yin deficiency such as tinnitus, dizziness, dryness and
unstable blood pressure.
Geng Nian An Pian is composed of 15 Chinese herbs which effectively clear heat and tonify the Yin to balance the body and relieve
the symptoms associated with menopause.
Geng Nian An Pian contains four of the primary herbs which comprise Liu Hui Di Huang Wan,
which is among the most regarded formulas in TCM used to tonify Yin and address symptoms
often associated with the aging process. The chief herb of both formulas is
Shu Di Huang (prepared Rehmannia root).
Shu Di Huang is a powerful Yin and blood tonic that especially benefits the Kidneys and Jing (essence).
Fu Ling (Poria) is used to calm the spirit (Shen) and strengthen the Spleen
to help digest the other Yin nourishing ingredients in the formulas.
Ze Xie (Plantain rhizome)
clears deficiency fire from the Kidneys. Studies have shown Ze Xie to be effective in resolving dizzieness and vertigo.1
Mu Dan Pi (Tree Peony bark) clears heat due to Yin deficiency or heat in the blood level.
Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia root) is the unprocessed Rehmannia root.
Compared to the prepared root, it has a strong property of clearing heat, cooling the Blood, and generating fluids.
Mai Dong (Ophiopogon tuber) nourishes Yin and generates fluids.
The important Yin tonic clears heat from the Heart, reduces irritability, and helps sleep. Together, these herbs act to help with
Zhen Zhu Mu (Pearl shell) calms the Liver and anchors Yang,
which can become uprising as a result of Yin deficiency. Zhen Zhu Mu also clears fire from the Heart which can cause irritability,
insomnia, palpitations and mood swings or mania. Shou Wu Teng (Polygonum vine),
nourishes the Heart and calms the spirit. Gou Teng (Uncaria hook)
extinguishes Liver wind, relieves spasms, has a suppressive effect on the central nervous system and calms the spirit.
Ci Shi (Magnetitum) is an important mineral in Chinese medicines that tranquilizes
the mind. It also nourishes the Kidneys to benefit dizziness and tinnitus.
Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra fruit) is an astringent medicinal herb
used to inhibit sweating, secure Jing (essence) and calm the Heart and spirit (Shen). Wu Wei Zi is particularly effective at
reducing night sweating when combined with Xuan Shen (Figwort root)
and Fu Xiao Mai (Blighted wheat). Xuan Shen also clears heat and
nourishes Yin while Fu Xiao Mai specifically addresses night sweating from Yin deficiency and benefits the Qi.
He Shou Wu (Polygonum root) is a particularly prized medicinal herb
used for anti-aging purposes.2 He Shou Wu tonifies Jing (essence) and nourishes the blood of the Liver and Kidneys.
He Shou Wu is warm but not drying and is tonifying but not cloying. He Shou Wu has been studied and found to be effective
in the treatment of insomnia.3
Xian Mao (Curculigo rhizome) tonifies the Kidney Yang and
strengthens tendons and bones. It is used to balance the action of other Kidney Yin tonic herbs in the formula.
Besides Yin deficiency, Yang deficiency is also frequently observed in ladies who experience the menopausal syndrome.
