    What does it do?

    Helps You Relax & Promotes A More Positive Mood

    Consider what many of us go through on a daily basis: financial worry; lack of free time; general anxiety and insecurity about the state of world affairs; untenable workloads and responsibility; relationship troubles … and so on and so on….

    No wonder many of us feel irritable, anxious, stressed-out and melancholic, much of the time.

    Thankfully, EaseTonic Plus™ is a traditional Chinese medicine herbal formula that may ease the burden of the daily grind. And for females, it may also ease premenstrual tension.

    Enhanced Formula Clears Liver Qi Stagnation & Heat

    EaseTonic Plus is an enhanced formulation of Xiao Yao San (EaseTonic), one of the most popular TCM formulas for stress management and mood enhancement.

    The formula builds on the ability of Xiao Yao Pian to clear Liver Qi stagnation. Chronic stress, according to TCM theory, leads to depressed Qi in the Liver meridian pathways. Other organ systems are affected as well, including Spleen. Consequently, nutrients can’t be properly absorbed, which leads to excess phlegm and heat in the body.

    Although it may seem like an esoteric concept in the west, emotions are closely tied to each organ system. In TCM theory, all associated feelings of anger, including resentment, irritability, and frustration, are tied to the Liver organ system. Anger results in stagnant Liver Qi.

    Our Plus formulization offers all the benefits of the original formula but also contains two extra heat-clearing herbs. The possible benefits of these heat-clearing herbs are alleviating classic symptoms of excess heat, including being quick to anger, hot flashes and irregular menstruation.

    Given enough time, taking EaseTonic Plus may disperse the Liver Qi stagnation, resulting in an improved relaxed feeling and mental outlook.

    How Does It Work?

    Collectively, the all-natural herbs in Xiao Yao San soothe the Liver to disperse depressed Qi, strengthen the Spleen to nourish the Blood, and regulate menstruation. The addition of Mu Dan Pi and Zhi Zi clears excess heat.

    Chai Hu (Bupleurum root) soothes the Liver to disperse the depressed Qi. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root) and Bai Shao (White peony root) nourish the Blood and the Liver. These first three herbs interact together to resolve the root cause of Liver Qi stagnation, as well as Blood deficiency.

    Bai Zhu (Atractylodis Rhizome) and Fu Ling (Poria) strengthen the middle warmer and reinforce the Spleen, thereby enriching the generation of Qi and Blood. Sheng Jiang (Fresh Ginger rhizome) regulates the stomach and warms the middle warmer. Bo He (Peppermint) assists Chai Hu in soothing the Liver to disperse depressed Qi. Gan Cao (Licorice root) assists Bai Zhu and Fu Ling in replenishing Qi and invigorating the middle warmer; it also coordinates the synergistic effects of all the herbs in this formula.

    Mu Dan Pi (Tree Peony Bark), besides clearing heat, cools the blood, invigorates the blood and dispels blood stasis. And the other heat-clearing herb, Zhi Zi (Gardenia Fruit) cools the blood and resolves toxicity.

    Does Research Support EaseTonic Plus?

    The original formulation of EaseTonic Plus, as a widely used Chinese medicine, has been a subject of many studies. These studies support its traditional use in promoting a positive mood among other benefits and are briefly summarized here.

    Some other studies focussed on Jia Wei Xiao Yao San itself. For example, it has demonstrated the ability to improve the quality of sleep in patients with psychological stress insomnia;1 it has also shown liver-protective and antioxidant properties in rats;2 a meta analysis of this formula suggests its promise in treating depression.3

    The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase or with heavy body weight).

    As the herbal formula is a mild tonic, results may only be noticeable after 2 weeks. It is suggested to take 4 to 6 bottles in full dose as the first regimen. The dose may then be reduced.

    Differentiation in Usage
    Jia Wei Xiao Yao Wan is based on Xiao Yao Wan and it is more proper for use when an internal heat symptom (e. g., hot flash) is shown.
