  • About

    Dried Reed Rhizome (Lu Gen) can be found across China and are typically collected at the end of Spring, the beginning of Summer or in Autumn. These are not smelly, sweet in taste and white-yellowish in colour with a tenacious texture which is not easy to snap. 

    Lu Gen contains high vitamin quantities, including Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin C, as well as protein, fat, asparagine, xylan, polyol, betaine, coixol and flavonoids. We recommend that the 'yellow-white' and lustrous Lu Gen (without fibrous roots) is best for health.


    Dried Reed Rhizome are herbs which may assist with fever, irritability, vomiting, aid thirst, vent rashes, assist with treating food poisoning and promote fluid generation. 

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