What is Bai Zhu?

Bai Zhu, or White Atractylodes Rhizome, is a bitter, sweet, and warm herb, and is categorized as “tonify Qi” herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Bai Zhu from Treasure of the East is sourced from Anhui Province, a Dao Di region where the herb has been grown and cultivated for many centuries.

What are the benefits of Bai Zhu?

Bai Zhu is best known for its TCM function of supplementing the Spleen, strengthening the Center and boosting the Qi, while drying dampness.

Additionally, Bai Zhu can stop spontaneous sweating and quiet restless fetus due to Spleen Qi deficiency.

What is the dosage and method for taking Bai Zhu?

Bai Zhu is generally taken as part of a balanced formula in conjunction with other herbs. Always follow your healthcare provider's instructions, as the dosage can vary based on your condition and response to treatment.

Bai Zhu may be taken in capsule form or loose granules. Granules dissolve best in very hot water.

When can I expect to see results?

Bai Zhu typically starts to take effect within days. However, like all treatments, its efficacy can vary from person to person.

Does Bai Zhu have any side effects?

While Bai Zhu is generally considered safe for most people, it can cause side effects in some individuals. Women who are pregnant, nursing, or postpartum as well as people with liver disease, should avoid or use Bai Zhu with caution.

As with any Chinese herb, we recommend consulting with a qualified practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) about Bai Zhu before any course of treatment is started.
