Gu Ya (Chao) (Fructus Germinatus Oryzae)
Properties: sweet, neutral
Channels: Spleen, Stomach
Key Characteristics: Gently reduces food stagnation while strengthening the Spleen and improving the appetite.
Additional Notes: We only dispense dry-fried Gu Ya as it better strengthens the Spleen. A good one to choose when the patient is avoiding wheat or gluten (even though once sprouted the gluten content of grains is minimal).
