Ziziphus Wild Jujube - Suan Zao Ren (Organic)


Suan Zao Ren / Wild Jujube

Zizyphus spinosa

From a Chinese perspective, the nature of this berry is sweet, sour and neutral. It addresses the gallbladder, heart, liver and spleen. It is considered a plant that nourishes the heart, the liver and calms the spirit. It’s used to treat heart yin deficiency symptoms such as  irritability, insomnia, palpitations with anxiety, and night sweats. Calming or sedating the mind, it is used to relieve irritability, neurasthenia, insomnia, nightmares, nervousness, and anxiety.

The analgesic effects, temperature regulation, effectiveness as a treatment for severe burns, and reduction of hypertension and depression when using Jujube as a medicinal herb, have been confirmed through research. More studies have shown its sedative effect without the habit-forming risk of chemical therapies, and that no signs of toxicity have been reported. Suan zao ren has also been used for enhancing memory and prolonging life.
