Our bupleurum powder is ground from organic Bupleurum chinense roots. Called chai hu in Traditional Chinese Medicine, bupleurum root has been used for thousands of years for its wellness-supporting properties and to help move qi (energy) throughout the system. A member of the Apiaceae family native to East Asia, bupleurum root powder can be used in herbal formulas, capsules, and extracts.
The bitter, acrid, cooling root of the bupleurum plant has a Chinese name that literally means "kindling of the barbarians." The plant itself is a perennial ornamental that has sickle shaped leaves and clusters of small yellow flowers. Bupleurum is also called Chinese thoroughwax and nan chai hu.
