Sometimes referred to as Thinleaf Milkwort, Yuan Zhi, or Chinese Senega, Polygala tenuifolia is a root used in traditional Chinese medicine. Early animal research suggests that it may have mood boosting properties and promote brain health. Additional animal research has suggested that Polygala tenuifolia may also have adaptogen-like properties and therefore increases nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Additionally, it may improve spatial organization/recognition and increase cognitive ability.

This is a very impressive herbal product. Very smooth lifting of mood, anxiety recedes. Increased feelings of comfort, enjoyment, playfulness. No discernible negative side-effects. Positive effects might include mild reduction of muscle tension and improved sleep. It is gentle and effective, but I would not recommend exceeding recommended dose, or using too frequently. I choose to use it only 2 or 3 times a week. Under better life circumstances, or if absolute clarity were the goal, I would keep it on the shelf until it's needed. Fantastic product, thank you ND.

I have Borderline Personality Disorder and this has literally been the only thing that has ever helped. I take this daily with a fairly large dose of omega 3 EPA/DHA. I have definitely noticed a difference and it absolutely is a positive one. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 only because it's not a miracle in powder form, it's not like all of my problems with my brain function just disappeared, but I will say that if you try this you do need to give it time. I've been taking it for a few weeks now and I am just starting to get the full effects. I recommend waiting at least a month before making any judgment. Either way, I am glad I tried this, it really is helping me navigate my mind and life. Unknown on 26th Apr 2017
Works as explains. Very happy. Unknown on 10th Mar 2017
I can't stop myself from thinking than P.Tenuifolia properties are much more wider than a simple AcCholinesterase Inhibitor, this plant need definitely more attention from the scientific community to determine the extent of it's neuro-chemistries abilities. Aside from it's traditionaly included in TCM in the formula KXS or Kai XIN SAN which contain Ginseng , Polygala , Acori Tatarinowii and Poria (and sometimes Poria paradicis much more potent than the standard poria cocos), of this formuloa knows many variants.

Say bye to melancholia with this compound.
Say hi to happiness. Tonald Drump on 8th Feb 2017
This was really the first time an antidepressant agent, herbal or chemical, actually did something for me and my well being.
It lasted about 4 days to build up and then, it's like magic, kinda the memories that hurt you, are still there but doesn't hurt anymore.
Its stability is the most miraculous thing I noticed. It's like if you're always good and nothing can't beat you.
I'm on it for about three months and, simply, I still can't believe it. Boces on 7th Feb 2017
Product arrived on time. The effects are good, but not mind blowing by any means. I imagine this herb works best if taken over a longer period of time. I would consider mixing this with a reishi extract to enhance the Shen effects. It's an ongoing experiment, I've sampled many different herbs to see if I notice a difference. Cinnamon, for example, can take up to a month to start working. Good for the hippocampus. Jared on 2nd Feb 2017
I immediately recognized the unique signature of Polygala root with 50 mg on the tongue
(intense pungent and bitter aftertaste). I've used this great Chinese herb many times in decoction and tincture and I'm pleased with this highly concentrated extract.
"The ancient name for this herb is the “Will Strengthener.” The herb is believed to have the ability to strengthen that part of the psyche which we call the “Will.” (Teaguarden 1996)

Can definitely feel something when I take it. Need to look into it more.
Quick international shipping as well(india), thank you NootropicsDepot! harish on 30th Dec 2016
I was almost ready to see a dr and try anti-depressants but decided I'd check out some other options and found this stuff. I went from being moody, depressed, and generally anxious all the time to feeling totally normal. Life has been so much more manageable since I started taking this and I actually feel like I can cope for the first time in my life. This has seriously done wonders for me and I'd recommend it to anyone struggling to get through the day. Unknown on 6th Dec 2016
