Reishi Mushroom

Reishi is known as the ultimate anti-stress herb. 

Clinical investigations show that Reishi mushroom promotes sleep and helps calm the nervous system. Reishi mushroom was used in folk medicine of China and Japan to treat insomnia, improve the quality of sleep and help reduce anxiety.

Reishi was traditionally used by Chinese and Japanese herbalists for insomnia cases due to its sleep-promoting factor. 

It's believed the terpenoid compounds in Reishi help soothe the nerves and promote a sedative action that can positively affect neurasthenia and insomnia. Long-term use of Reishi was also shown to increase slow-wave sleep (deep sleep).

Pearl Powder

Pearl powder is well known for its calming and relaxing properties. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Pearl has been used for thousands of years to calm the nervous system, reduce stress, elevate mood, and promote peaceful energy and deep sleep.

Pearl is an adaptogen. Its dual-directional activity works to stabilise and balance the body by providing energy throughout the day and promoting sleep and calmness at night. 

A study showed that Pearl could down-regulate the expression of 5-HT (serotonin blocker) and up-regulate the level of GABA activity in the brain and body.

GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is a calming neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain. Low levels of GABA have been linked to people with anxiety, mood disorders, chronic stress and pain. High levels of GABA has shown to improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote better sleep.

Pearl has also shown positive effects against insomnia. Pearl is “cold” in nature and its action against insomnia is through reducing excess "liver heat” which is another reason why Pearl helps to calm the mind and central nervous system.
