Cozz is the name given to a plant semen combination used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for the treatment of insomnia. It does not make you fall asleep in an instant. However, it improves the quality of sleep by encouraging deep and peaceful sleep, thus waking up with less exhaustion. It is made of Semen Ziziphi Spinosae and Semen Platycladi
Semen ziziphi spinosae, or sour date, is an excellent natural and safe “sedative” herb. In Chinese medicine, this herb nourishes the two organs responsible for sleep, the liver and heart. When balance is brought back to these organs, sleep occurs naturally. Semen ziziphi spinosae is the main ingredient of the formula of ancient Chinese medicine, which is used for the treatment of deficiency and insomnia. The actions of the formula are to nourish the blood, clear heat, relieve restlessness, and treat insomnia. According to ancient prescriptions and theories, both raw and prepared Semen ziziphi spinosae can work as a natural herb for insomnia.
Bai Zi Ren (Semen Platycladi)
The matured and oily pine nuts from the evergreen coniferous tree Chinese arborvitae are carefully selected and dried before they are skinned to leave the premium seed core for the final product: Bai Zi Ren. In Chinese culture, evergreen coniferous trees are often regarded as symbolic of longevity and vitality. The direct Latin translation of the common name arborvitae is “tree of life.”
Traditional Chinese medical culture emphasizes physical health, which is a reflection of an individual’s mental and spiritual state. Therefore, it is natural that traditional Chinese medical practitioners have long sought to unlock the secrets hidden in the evergreen trees.
One of these secrets may be inside the seed. Historical uses of Bai Zi Ren include sedation of anxiety and resolving insomnia-related problems. Bai Zi Ren is a natural and nutritional jewel with a lot of potential, especially in reducing insomnia.
In combination, these two herbal extracts also present a synergetic result that can be used to regulate sleep conditions and provide better sleep quality. A recent study has indicated positive results on animal trials and should be considered as a milestone for combining ancient medical concepts with modern technological achievement.
