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.
Benefits may include:
- May help with fever
- Can assist to stop irritability
- May aid thirst
- Can promote fluid generation
- May reduce vomiting
-Can assist with treating food poisoning
- May vent rashes
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 (Lu Gen) can interestingly be made into paper, rayon, and mats. Their young stems and leaves can be made into fodder, with their inflorescences being made into brooms and pillows.
