Better than Melatonin
This really helped me sleep and I’ve tried everything in order to prevent having to take a prescription. So far so good, and I’ve used everything- Melatonin of all kinds (time release, gummies). I’ve also tried bar tinctures, but this is the best remedy I have found to date.
An Mian Tang (liquid tincture) is a popular sleep aid that works by replenishing reserves of the cooling, nourishing fluids of the body (yin) that have been depleted over time, whether from the non-stop pace required necessitated by modern life, stress, anxiety, or the natural progression of aging.
The chief herb is Suan zao ren (the seed of the jujube date), which is widely known for its ability to “calm Shen“– that is, bring peace to the Spirit, calm anxiety, and promote restful and even sleep.

This formula need to be taken regularly for at least one month to really know if’s working for a particular person’s pattern of imbalances.
Shake Well before each use.
Maintenance Serving: Dissolve 1-2 droppers (1/2 tsp.) in warm water or juice 2-3 times daily.
Augmented Serving: Take 1 full tsp. 2 to 3 times daily in warm water or juice or as directed by a qualified herbalist familiar with the use of Chinese herbs and formulas.
