Description

Excerpted from Bensky:  Chinese Herbal Medicine Materia Medica, 3rd ed

  • Relaxes the sinews and unblocks the channels:  for damp painful obstruction in the extremities, especially with severe cramping pain, and weakness in the lower back and lower extremities.  This is one of the more effective herbs for relaxing the sinews.*
  • Harmonizes the Stomach and transforms dampness:  for abdominal pain, spasms, and cramping of the calves, and edema due to leg qi.  Especially useful for disharmony between the Liver and Spleen leading to leg problems.*
  • Reduces food stagnation:  for indigestion.  While this effect is similiar to that obtained from Crataegi Fructus (shan zha), it is not commonly used.
Ingredients Mu Gua - Fructus Chaenomelis
