Sha Ren

English Name: amomum fruit, cardamon

Literal Translation: “sand seeds”

Pharmaceutical Name: Fructus Amomi

Medica Category: Aromatic Damp-Dissolving Herbs

Properties: Sha Ren enters the Spleen and Stomach channels; it is acrid in nature and warm and aromatic in temperature.

What is Sha Ren?:

The Chinese Herb Sha Ren is the mature fruit of a perennial herb in the ginger family (similar to cardamon– Amomum villosum Lour.) that produces leafy stems up to 10ft tall from a creeping rhizome. This plant ranges from South China through most of the rest of Southeast Asia; it is cultivated for its seed pods, which are harvested in the summer and fall after the spring flowering has given way to fruiting.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Therapeutic Actions of Sha Ren:

Sha Ren promotes the movement of qi, aromatically transforms (dissolves) dampness, and warms and strengthens the Spleen. It is used to dissolve dampness that has accumulated in the middle jiao to the point that the transport and transformation (T & T) functions of the Spleen are impaired (i.e. have stagnated). Furthermore, Sha Ren not only dissolves this accumulated dampness but also acts to actively restore the Spleen’s T & T functions. Clinical indications for its use include: epigastric bloating and abdominal distention, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.

Sha Ren warms the middle jiao to address diarrhea that comes from cold and accumulated dampness.

Sha Ren calms the fetus and stabilizes pregnancy and is used in China to address bleeding, abnormal pain, and severe nausea and vomiting in the context of an unstable pregnancy (with accompanying qi stagnation and middle jiao deficiency).

It works for back pain caused by PMS.

Lately I’ve had back pain and forgetfulness symptoms. I’ve had a bottle now, and it worked for both symptoms. Highly recommended for those who suffer from menstrual back pain!



Helps with Anxiety

I was recommended these by my acupuncturist for helping with frequent anxiety and stress. They are easy to take and really do help a lot. It’s recommended to take about 24 pills a day so the bottle does run out quickly so make sure to buy more than 1 at a time
