Rehmannia root is one of the most commonly used herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. In that practice, health is seen as a balance of two energies: Yin and Yang. When one of these is deficient, the other takes over, and that’s when health problems occur. Using this philosophy, rehmannia is used to treat a deficiency of Yin.
Symptoms of a Yin Deficiency
You know that “tired yet wired” feeling that comes from our fast paced lifestyle? That may represent a Yin deficiency. Some of the symptoms include (but are not limited to):
- Inability to relax or wind down
- Disturbing dreams
- Fast pulse or heart palpitations
- Dry skin or hair
Rehmannia Glutinosa Benefits
The Rehmannia plant can treat many issues. We use it in Be Serene to promote calmness and reduce anxiety. However, it is used to treat any ailment associated with a lack of Yin in the body. It is also used for:
- Kidney problems
How Rehmannia Root Helps Anxiety?
Rehmannia root is particularly useful for treating anxiety for several reasons. However, it’s important to know what makes it different from other anxiety remedies. It is not a sedative. Some of the ingredients in Be Serene may have a mild sedative effect, but what Be Serene aims to do is to treat anxiety from a holistic perspective, not just put you to sleep.
Rehmannia is an adaptogen that helps your body adjust when stress appears. It helps you to regulate cortisol and other stress hormones in the body, so your adrenal glands aren’t over taxed, which is one thing that can exacerbate anxiety. It also helps to regulate your blood sugar so your mood stays more stable throughout the day, even if you get a little hungry.
How to Use Rehmannia Plant?
There are many ways to use this herbal supplement. We do recommend that you take it continually as the Rehmannia extract benefits are cumulative. People do experience relief right away, but they find that as time goes on, and they keep taking Rehmannia they experience a greater feeling of well being and reduction of anxiety.
Some people use Rhemannia root tea or Rhemmania root extract. However, keep in mind that Be Serene already has the perfect amount of this plant in it. You don’t have to consider the dosage or wonder if you are taking too much or too little to get the right effect.
The Rehmannia we use is non-GMO, and we source all of our herbal supplements responsibly. So, you can get your fill of this plant and feel great about what you’re putting in your body to tackle anxiety.
