    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, forgetfulness, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, palpitations, 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 refresh 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. Suan Zao Ren extracts can shorten sleep latency significantly and increase sleeping time in animal studies.1

    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 improving learning and memory. The beneficial effects of Yuan Zhi on the brain function are being confirmed by modern studies.2

    Dan Shen (Salvia root) is well known for promoting blood circulation. The Chinese herb also nourishes the blood and calm the spirit. For sleeplessness, Dan Shen is often combined with Suan Zao Ren.

    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 sleeplessness and palpitation caused by the disharmony 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 irritability.

    BrainNew™ (Bu Nao Yang Shen Pian) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    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!!
