  • About

    Dried Codonoposis Root (Dang Shen) has many other names such as 'poor man's Ginseng' as it a cheaper alternative.

    The root is commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine.

    They are viewed as an effective and more affordable substitute for ginseng, hence the name 'poor man's ginseng'.
    Just like its expensive counterpart, Codonoposis Root is collected from the wild so is considered more powerful than those that are cultivated.


    Dried Codonopsis Root are herbs which may assist with weakness, fatigue, poor appetite, anaemia, assist with diarrhoea, vomiting, flatulence, excessive stomach acid, aid digestion, treat headaches, chronic coughs, shortness of breath, fatigue, helps build blood, improve your immune system while also containing immune-enhancing polysaccharides (just a couple of benefits then)! 

    They can be used in a number of culinary dishes (see How to Use dropdown menu).
