Jiang Ya Pian (Jiang Ya Wan, HypertenSure™, 降压丸),
is an all natural Chinese herbal supplement that calms the Liver and subdues the Yang to help maintain healthy blood pressure.
What does it do?
Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood
against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is usually defined by blood pressure
readings of 140/90 mmHg. Readings above 120/80 mmHg but below 140/90 mmHg are considered pre-hypertension.
Blood pressure is influenced by many factors including electrolyte balance, hormones, medications, stress, diet,
lifestyle and certain medical conditions such as diabetes. Most of the time, hypertension is asymptomatic.
Occasionally there may be headaches, changes in vision, nosebleed, dizziness, nausea or vomiting. Hypertension is an important
risk factor for stroke, heart attack, heart failure, etc.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), high blood pressure mostly falls into a pattern called
"Ascendant Liver Yang" or ascendant hyperactivity of liver yang, which is often associated with headaches, dizziness, tinnitus,
sensation of swelling in the eyes, irritability, insomnia, or palpitations.
The pattern results from an imbalance of Yin and Yang in which Yin is weakened so that it cannot hold Yang in the Liver in balance and
causes the Yang uprising. Therefore, a main principle in TCM to address hypertension is to calm the liver, subdue the errant Yang,
and simultaneously enrich the Yin.
HypertenSure™ is Guang Ci Tang's signature formula that follows the principle for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.
The Chinese remedy is most appropriate for hypertension due to Liver Yang rising and in cases where heat signs (especially of the Liver)
are apparent such as a red tongue and rapid pulse.
Jiang Ya Pian is composed of 11 herbs which act together to calm the liver, subdue the Yang,
enrich the Yin, and regulate blood pressure as detailed below.
Huang Qin (Scutellaria) clears heat especially from the upper body
and has been shown to lower blood pressure by causing dilation of the blood vessels.1
Zhi Zi (Gardenia) clears heat and sedates fire and also has
anti-hypertensive properties. Long Dan Cao (Gentiana)
clears heat and anchors Liver Yang. Zhen Zhu Mu (Pearl shell)
calms the Liver and anchors the Yang. In addition, it settles the Shen (spirit) to help insomnia and irritability.
Xia Ku Cao (Prunella) clears
Liver fire and acts as an anti-hypertensive by inducing vasodilation,2 similar to Huang Qin.
Huai Mi (Sophora) is used here in conjunction with Xia Ku Cao to sedate Liver fire,
and it also lowers cholesterol and possesses anti-hypertensive properties.
Mu Dan Pi (Mouton) clears heat due to Yin deficiency or
heat in the blood level and also treats Liver Yang rising/Liver fire. Studies show that Mu Dan Pi is empirically effective
at lowering blood pressure.3 Dan Shen (Salvia root) is a key blood invigorating herb
which regulates blood circulation, cools the blood and is prized for its ability to treat chest pain.4
It is also shown to regulate blood pressure. Similarly, Niu Xi (Achyranthis root) nourishes the Liver and Kidneys,
activates the blood and eliminates stasis but has the added effect of directing fire downwards and reducing blood pressure.
Zhi Mu (Anemarrhena) clears heat and
sedates fire but also nourishes Yin and protects fluids, and clears deficiency fire.
Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia root) nourishes Yin,
Blood and Essence (Jing) and has a marked effect at lowering blood pressure and cholesterol. Their inclusion in the formula
is also very suitable for those who undergo menopause.

"I have high blood pressure for many years and had been taking prescription drug Benazepril at 2 tablets daily.
Concerned about the side effect of long term use of Benazepril, I sought help from Dr. Kuan who is an acupuncturist
and TCM doctor. Now I am taking Guang Ci Tang's "Jiang Ya Wan" and garlic supplement,
I am able to reduce taking Benazepril from 2 tablets a day to 1 tablet every 5 days.
My blood pressure is normal now at 142/92. I am very happy and impressed with the Jiang Yan Wan's results.
I am taking Jiang Ya Wan twice a day and 5 pills each serving."
