    What does it do?

    An Shen Bu Xin Wan is a common Chinese herbal remedy used to calm the mind ans support a restful sleep.

    From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), An Shen Bu Xin Wan calms the Heart and spirit and restores normal sleep rhythm by nourishing Heart Yin and blood while anchoring hyperactive Liver Yang (caused by deficient Heart blood). When blood is insufficient and therefore fails to nourish the Shen (spirit) which is said to be housed in the heart, a feeling of your heart pounding and having a trouble in falling asleep are common symptoms. An Shen Bu Xin Wan may also be used for mood swings and lightheadedness.

    An Shen Bu Xin Wan is composed of 10 medicinal Chinese herbs that nourish Yin and blood, calm the Shen (spirit), clear heat and anchor Yang.

    Dan Shen (Salvia root) regulates blood circulation, calms the Shen and dispels heat from the Heart. Dan Shen also nourishes blood to help heart beating. Studies have shown Dan Shen to have a marked calming effect. Shou Wu Teng (Fo-ti stem), also known as Ye Jiao Teng, nourishes the Heart and calms the Shen due to general blood deficiency while also clearing the meridian pathways.

    Di Huang (Rehmannia root) is a powerful Yin tonic used to nourish the blood of the Heart.

    Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra fruit) calms the heart and Shen, resolves anxiousness and dream-disturbed sleeplessness (which are signs of Yin and blood failing to nourish the heart). Tu Si Zi (Cuscuta seed) tonifies Kidney Yin and Yang and is combined with Wu Wei Zi to reduce the occurrence of frequent dreaming. Nu Zhen Zi (Glossy Privet fruit) clears heat caused by Yin deficiency and is a relatively mild tonic useful for lightheadedness. When combined with Wu Wei Zi, it is very useful for night sweats. Mo Han Lian, also known as Han Lian Cao (Eclipta) nourishes Yin and clears heat from the blood. It is often paired with Nu Zhen Zi for Liver and Kidney Yin deficiency.

    Shi Chang Pu (Acorus) opens the orifices and calms the Shen. Zhen Zhu Mu (Mother of pearl) calms the Liver and anchors Yang, which can become hyper-ascendant due to Liver blood deficiency. Zhen Zhu Mu also clears Heart fire when combined with Shi Chang Pu.

    He Huan Pi (Albizia Bark) calms the Shen and relieves Liver Qi stagnation (constraint).

    SpiritCalm™ (An Shen Bu Xin Pian) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SpiritCalm I've been taking this a short time, but seeing improvements already. I'm a 66 year old woman, 128 pounds. I've been having heart attack symtoms, chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath and more. After an emergency room visit and stress test I found no heart related problems. After taking this for about a week, all my symtoms are greatly reduced. The only thing I haven't experienced is improved sleep. I'm wondering if another formula would serve me better, but I'll give this some time. Because of the sleep issue I'm not giving five stars. Very good product though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems to calm I'm not a believer in herbal medicines and was given a few of these tablets by a friend. I certainly felt calmer after taking them and more chilled out, shouted at the kids less and generally didn't get bothered by the things that usually wound me up. Whether it's the tablets actually doing anything or a placebo effect......not sure and don't care to be honest as long as I feel better in myself. Taking no where near the recommended 7 tablets at a time, more like 2 a day and it seems to be having an effect. Working or not, the cost is cheap if I'm feeling better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Results! I have an adopted son who was born addicted to several illegal substances. He was adopted at birth and is now 13 years old. He has always had a difficult time focusing, calming himself when he perceives everything is going wrong, he was high-strung, and often could not sleep. This product has helped in every one of those areas. He is now calm, focused, able to think clearly, and no longer has uncontrollable tantrums. These are fantastic results and he reminds me when it is time for him to take his An Shen!!

I immediatly felt a difference in my ability to stay calm. My emotions are no longer controlling the day. This herb significantly helps to stay grounded. I take it with other herbs such as Sleepeace and MooDelight. You can heal!! You can remember what the body feels like before stress!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Herbs My acupuncturist prescribed this for me for calming and grounding. I was having mild anxiety due to hormone fluctuations and this really helped quite a bit. It also seems to be evening out my sleep. I wake up much less during the night. It really is great stuff with no side effects and natural. I just love it. It keeps me calm and grounded throughout the day as I handle multiple tasks as I have my own business.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps me stay calm SpiritCalm helps me when my brain won't shut off. Whether it is too many thoughts during the day or at night, this stuff works. Of course, best effects are achieved taking it regularly, but even if I suddenly realize I am obsessing before bed, taking it has helped me a lot. It is important to read all the indications before trying to make sure you get the right formula. There is another one called SleepPeace which also is my go-to for insomnia.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective Herb Started taking this herb on the recommendation of my acupuncturist for heart palpitations, anxiety and insomnia. Had an EKG and my heart is fine but all the stress in my life was causing sleepless nights and a racing heart. After one month I was sleeping normally again and the palpitations stopped. Bottom line, this herb was a lifesaver and one of the most effective herbs I've ever taken. I still take them even after a year but don't need the full dosage. I highly recommend!

    Product Q&A

    What are the possible adverse reaction of An Shen Bu Xin pill might have?

    Asked by: Sandy
    I have never experienced any side effect with any Chinese herbal formulas in the 20 years I have been taking them. If you have an allergy to an herb in the formula then I would be cautious. Otherwise, I don't think you have anything to lose by giving these a try.
