Depression is a mood disorder characterized by severe or prolonged sadness that interferes with energy levels, daily functions and quality of life. Depression is characterized by symptoms such as fatigue, poor concentration, loss of interest and pleasure, and absence of sexual desires. While the exact cause of depression is unknown, common contributing factors include heredity, endocrine disorders, neurological disorders, mental disorders, and use of certain medications.

Shine is formulated specifically to treat depression, which according to traditional Chinese medicine is a disease caused by prolonged stagnation of qi, blood, dampness, and/or food. The treatment protocol is to break up all stagnation and nourish the internal organs.
Xiang Fu (Rhizoma Cyperi) and Chai Hu (Radix Bupleuri) promote the flow of Liver qi and reduce hypochondriac distension. Yu Jin (Radix Curcumae) and Chuan Xiong (Rhizoma Chuanxiong) relieve stagnation by invigorating blood flow. Shen Qu (Massa Fermentata) helps digestion by removing food stagnation. Gan Cao (Radix et Rhizoma Glycyrrhizae) and Da Zao (Fructus Jujubae) nourish the Heart and moisten internal dryness. Yuan Zhi (Radix Polygalae) and He Huan Pi (Cortex Albiziae) calm the shen (spirit) and relieve depression. Cha Ye (Folium Camelliae) lifts the mood. Zhi Zi (Fructus Gardeniae) sedates heat in the Heart and relieves irritability. Shi Chang Pu (Rhizoma Acori Tatarinowii) opens the orifices, eliminates phlegm to increase alertness, and calms the shen (spirit). Long Gu (Os Draconis) and Mu Li (Concha Ostreae) have tranquilizing functions to alleviate insomnia and dream-disturbed sleep. Finally, Guan Ye Jin Si Tao (Herba Hyperici Perforati), also known as St. John’s Wort, is clinically found to be effective against depression, and enhances the overall effectiveness of this formula.
