TCM Herb a Day
Leonurus fruit (Chong Wei Zi in Pin Yin) is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herb that is believed to have slightly cold properties and a sweet taste. It is thought to enter the Liver and Spleen channels and is commonly used to treat patterns of blood stasis and liver-heat in TCM. It is often used in combination with other herbs in formulas to support the function of the liver and spleen and to promote circulation and resolve blood stasis. It is important to note that TCM herbs and formulas should be used under the guidance of a trained practitioner.
