Bai Zhu (Raw) (Rhizoma Atractylodis macrocephalae)
Properties: bitter, sweet, warm
Channels: Spleen, Stomach
Key Characteristics: Tonifies Spleen qi, dries dampness, calms the fetus. Also secures the surface to stop spontaneous perspiration due to dampness causing disharmony of nutritive and protective qi.
Additional Notes: This is the raw form. Raw Bai Zhu is more moistening within its ability to dry dampness, and enriches Spleen and Stomach yin. We also dispense dry-fried Bai Zhu which is better for stopping loose stool and calming the fetus. If dry-fried is desired please select Bai Zhu (Chao) from the herbs list.
