Shen-Gem is a modification of Ginseng and Longan formula (gui pi tang), designed to strengthen the body while calming agitation. Ginseng (ren shen), astragalus (huang qi), atractylodes (bai zhu) tonifies Qi. Salvia (dan shen) and amber (hu po) dispel stagnant blood. Vladimiria souliei (mu xiang) and cardamon (sha ren) move stagnant Qi. Poria (fu ling), White atractylodes (bai zhu), and ginger (gan jiang) dispel accumulated dampness. Zizyphus (suan zao ren), polygala (yuan zhi), and amber (hu po) act as sedatives, while also improving memory, concentration, and relaxation. Shen-Gem is for insomnia due to heart blood deficiency, whereby the patient has difficulty falling asleep.

For more than a decade, Health Concerns has been in the forefront of research in herbal medicine, and was the first company to manufacture herbal products in the United States for practitioners. Its founder, Andrew Gaeddert, is an herbalist, lecturer, author of numerous books on herbal medicine, and committed to improving community health. He assisted in the development of clinical trials with HIV patients in 1992, and has been on the protocol team of a study to investigate the effects of Chinese herbs on chronic diarrhea, and an anemia study sponsored by the NIH Office of Alternative Medicine.
Health Concerns formulas are created on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern biochemistry and developed by experienced practitioners such as Mr. Gaeddert, Dr.Fong Fong, and Misha Cohen. They are produced in easy-to-take tablets (preferred by many patients), targeted to treat specific disorders, and manufactured under strict quality control. And all are continually tested to ensure optimum effectiveness, potency, and maximum bioavailability.
