What does it do?
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the heart controls the blood and stores Shen (the spirit), the kidney provides the source of Yin and Yang energy for the whole body, including heart. When the heart function is weak with respect to Yin and blood, Shen (the spirit) does not rest well and causes restlessness, palpitation, and amnesia. One may also have difficulty staying asleep, make a lot of dreams, and have seminal emission in the dream in man. Additionally, one may have warm and moist palms/sole, dry mouth or even mouth and tongue ulcers, and dry stool.
Tian Wang Bu Xin Pian (Wan) is composed of multiple herbs that either nourish Yin, or blood, or calm the mind. The herbs are combined according to the TCM principles so that they can act optimally to strengthen the heart.
It is yet to uncover how Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan acts in modern biochemical terms. In one study, animal models were created experimentally so that animals had myocardiac infarction, palpitation, irregular heart beat, resulting in death. When Tian Wang Bu Xin Dan was applied to the animals, the damages of myocardiac infarction was much relieved and the death rate was much reduced.1
Tian Wang Bu Xin Wan has been indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for nourishing Yin and blood, and tonify the heart to tranquilize mind. The herbal formula is used for insomnia, palpitation, mental lassitude, amnesia, dry throat and mouth, dreaminess, nocturnal seminal emission, constipation, and oral ulceration. †
