This natural fruit boosts sleep, eases anxiety, helps digestion, and protects against disease

Jujube seed (Ziziphus zizyphus), also commonly referred to as Suan Zao Ren or the Red Chinese date, is a fruit native to Asian nations including China, Japan, Korea and India. Its use dates back nearly 2,500 years in traditional Chinese medicine as a potent stress reliever, appetite stimulant, digestive aid and even as an aphrodisiac, and it is traditionally eaten fresh or dehydrated and made into a candy. While eating it may help promote wellness and reduce anxiety, the nutrient composition of the plant varies geographically and based on the techniques used to process it.

The sedative properties are reported to come from the saponin components. Saponins are also known to reduce cholesterol levels, have anti-tumor capability by inhibiting tumor growth and in some cases initiate programmed cell death (apoptosis), boost the immune system and fight off infections, elevate mood (anti-anxiety) and prevent cell damage by acting as an antioxidant.The saponin components have triterpene structure and are generally known as jujubosides A and B and are responsible for this fruits ability to have a calming effect.  These jujubosides do much further than act as a mood enhancer by reducing hyperactivity and reducing hypertension.  This makes jujubosides useful in treating sleep disorders, anxiety and cardiovascular problems.

At present the main Jujubosides extracted from Jujube Seed. Jujube seed also contains betulin, betulinic acid, ceanothic acid, coumarin, jujubosides, oleanic acid, sapponins and ursolic acid
