Calm and Clear (Chai Hu jia Long Gu Mu Li Tang)
Herbal Creatures™ Calm and Clear is a high potency formula containing herbs traditionally used to calm behaviour, enhance sleep, promote proper bowel and bladder function, and combat the effects of stress.
A blend of herbs used for:
- Restlessness at night, anxiety, palpitations, irritability, aggression
- Dysuria and/or constipation
- Stiffness of the whole body and difficulty in moving/inability to rotate the trunk
How it works
Calm and Clear is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Chai Hu Jia Long Mu Tang, used to calm the body and to clear heat and inflammation from the system.
This formula is calming and sedative of the central nervous system, inducing increased sleeping time, decreased body temperature and decreased spontaneous activity. It is also antidepressant, and has been shown to reduce emotional-stress-induced elevated corticosterone levels. In addition, the formula has cardioprotective qualities, as it has demonstrated antihypertensive effects and shown to protect against hypercholesterolaemia and atherosclerosis.
This formula is most applicable for behavioural disorders or anxiety caused by stress, and has been used effectively in performance animals under the stress of confinement or travel.
