    What does it do?

    We are living in a highly competitive world. Competition is intense, whether you are running your own business, a working professional, a student, or a homemaker. Pressure is high to deliver results, which often translates to working long hours. Naturally stress starts to build up, which can result in a lack of focus, easily forgetting things, and foggy head.

    These signs are related to the brain function and indicative of a disharmony between the Heart and the Kidneys according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In TCM, the Heart corresponds to Fire and holds the Spirit or mental activities (sounds familiar? remember Celine Dion's "my heart will go on") whereas the Kidneys correspond to Water and are the fundamental source of the Yin, Yang, and Qi energies of the body. Their harmonious interaction ensures proper bodily functions. When the body is burning out, either through work or study, the Heart and the Kidney are negatively impacted. This leads to hyperactive fire of the Heart and the Yin insufficiency of the Kidney, resulting in the symptoms mentioned above.

    BrainNew™ is a Chinese herbal formula that may support healthy brain functions. The Chinese herb nourishes the Heart to calm the mind, tonifies the Kidneys to benefit the brain. The function of BrainNew™ is carried out by the unique combination of following Chinese herbs.

    Suan Zao Ren (Sour Jujube seed) nourishes the heart and liver, calms the spirit. Suan Zao Ren is a key Chinese herb for supporting a restful sleep.

    Ye Jiao Teng (Shou Wu Teng, Polygoni Multiflori vine) is a popular Chinese herb for supporting a restful sleep. Shou Wu Teng acts to nourish the heart and calm the spirit.

    Shi Chang Pu ( Rhizoma Acori talarinowii ) opens the orifices and dispels phlegm, quiets the spirit and promotes cognition.

    • He Huan Hua (Albiziae flower) calms the spirit and disperses the stagnated Qi energy to improve mood.

    Yuan Zhi (Polygalae root) calms the spirit and expels phlegm. The Chinese herb is renowned in Chinese medicine for supporting learning and memory.

    Dan Shen (Salvia root) is well known for promoting blood circulation. The Chinese herb also nourishes the blood and calm the spirit.

    Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra berry) is a famous tonic Chinese herb that both nourishes the Kidneys and calms the Spirit. Schisandra berry is perfect for restoring the harmony between the Heart and the Kidneys.

    Huang Jing (Polygonati root) replenishes both Yin and Qi energies to nourish the Kidneys.

    Dang Gui (Angelicae Sinensis root) is a common tonic Chinese herb for blood nourishment.

    Zhi Mu (Anemarrhena rhizome) clears heat and drains fire to take care of short temper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loosing my mind.... I was suffering from terrible memory loss. I was so bad that my children sat me now and expressed to me that they thought I had the beginnings of Alzhiemers disease. That really frightened me. So, I researched the tradititional Chinese herbs for a cure. I found it in Brain New. I take 5 tabs 2 times a day. I am so much better that was able to complete my Bachelor of Nursing degree with highest honors and I have been accepted to graduate school to obtain my Family Practice Nurse Practitioner degree! I know that I would not have been able to do all of these things if I did not find this superior herbal product from Active Herb! I can not say enough good things about their products!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I take this herb as a regime with others hearts such as Spirit Calm and Ease Tonic. BrainNew makes a profound difference for me. I wanted this herb to help with my feeling of being mentally burned out and agitated. I also wanted to use for memory support during a stressful time. Since taking this herb my mind is alert, and able to intake large amounts of information without feeling tired. There is a noticeable difference when I don't take this herb. I go back to feeling like I haven't rested enough. This herb has helped me keep a mental balance under my current stresses. I highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improves sleep and alertness This has helped me to sleep more deeply/continuously (I'm usually a light sleeper who wakes up from a bit of noise and then take hours to fall asleep again) and feel more refreshed the next day. The great thing about it is that it also makes me more alert/aware (no brain fog!) the following day, when other sleep aids will just make me more foggy. I can also feel an increase in energy and sense of calmness. It seems to be reducing the symptoms of burn-out which I've been feeling after many years of working in a high-stress job. Will definitely continue taking! (I only take 4 tablets once a day after dinner. I also take 2 tablets each of Xiao Yao Wan and Jia Wei Xiao Yao Wan once a day after breakfast.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity of Thought and Better Memory I have taken this product for several years at below recommended dosage, and a few months ago I was experiencing disturbing episodes of memory loss and brain fog. I raised my dose to the recommended 5 tablets, 3 times a day, and I find that my mind is clearer, and my memory is better. It is not like I suddenly have a perfect memory, but I have fewer lapses of memory and fewer times that I have trouble thinking through a complex problem. I am 65 years old, and wish to remain active in my sewing business, as well as doing my own computer maintenance and trouble-shooting. This product has helped me stay on top of my game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works My husband almost died and in nursing home for months I did not want to do anything except what I had to. So I went to work and home. I tried this product for about a month and want a difference! I am beginning to feel like myself again and will continue to use until I am fully back. I followed directions on bottle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! This really works! I find my mind is sharper and my memory better. One other note, which I'm not sure is related, but I am less anxious. I will purchase this again.

    Product Q&A

    The formula, BrainNew, contains Dan Shen. I need to know what percentage of the formula is Dan Shen. Because this is a blood invigorating herb and I have a client that can only have a limited amount of herbs in that catagory. Thanks

    Asked by: AnneMarie
    Thanks for the question. Sorry we do not disclose the exact ratio of each herb in our proprietary formulas, but the dose is safe and does not go beyond what is defined as daily dosage for Dan Shen per China pharmacopeia (also please see ).
