Gan Jiang (Chao) (dry Rhizoma Zingiberis)
Properties: acrid, hot
Channels: Heart, Lungs, Spleen, Stomach
Key Characteristics: Warms Spleen, transforms thin mucous, unblocks channels, revives the yang, also stops bleeding due to deficient cold (especially if prescribed as Pao Jiang).
Additional Notes: This is dry-fried Gan Jiang, we do not dispense raw. Dry-frying reduces the pungency making it easier on the patient. The effect remains the same. We also offer Pao Jiang which you can find in the herbs list.
