According to one source (namely the book on formulas that one of my
teachers and I created) this formula was in fact originally designed for
children who's upright qi was not yet fully develped.
Here are some other fun factz about this formula's inclusion of Ren Shen...
1) For children as mentioned above.
2) Ren Shen tonifies the wei qi to prevent further invasion of exogenous
factors (apparently not necessarily the gui zhi tang syndrome of partial sweating)
3) Ren Shen nourishes the yin which supports the production of sweat
4) Ren Shen protects against damage to the Yuan source qi as a result of
the sweating as mentioned above.
