Atractylodes General Information

Atractylodes is an herb that has been used in Chinese herbal medicines for centuries, bitter and pungent in flavor, yet warm in nature. Atractylodes is native from Manchuria and Korea to Northern and Eastern China and Japan. It grows in mountain valleys, especially in China’s Zhejiang province. It is in flower from July to August and the seeds ripen from August to September. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both the male and female plants must be grown if seed is required). This plant can grow in many different soils, but needs to be well drained. Atractylodes is one of the most important and commonly used herbs used in Chinese Tonic herbalism. It is found in the majority of formulations that are designed to build qi (life force or as we would say, immune system).


Atractylodes Uses & Scientific Evidence For

The main part of this herb used is the Rhizomes/roots; usually taken as decoction, simply put, a decoction is your basic infusion juiced up to induce stubborn roots, barks and resins to release their medicinal properties. While most plants will yield their properties to cold or boiling hot water in a matter of minutes, some require a much longer period of time, say 30 minutes or more. This herb acts on the spleen and stomach channels. One of its properties removes dampness from the body; the other is a warm property that dispels the cold. Atractylodes can help expel wind-cold from the superficial parts of the body, and cold-dampness and excessive fluid in the spleen and stomach; therefore, Atractylodes are indicated for treating diseases caused by dampness no matter what is in the exterior or the interior of the body. The Atractylodes herb is widely used to strengthen digestion and assimilation and to move moisture through the body. It can help stimulate the appetite for those who need it, but it also helps reduce the appetite in those who overeat. Taking Atractylodes supplements and exercising heavily or performing other types of hard physical activity, will promote muscle growth. Athletes use this herb to build powerful muscle and to provide physical endurance. This herb is helpful for those who tend to experience diarrhea, bloating, abdominal pain, vomiting and fatigue, especially during the summer and in hot climates. Atractylodes is commonly used in formulas for conditions that are associated with poor fluid movement in the body such as edema, phlegm retention, and vertigo.

In China, this herb has an important anti-cancer reputation for Cervical, Mammary, Stomach and Uterine tumors. Science there has been tested with positive results

Atractylodes is a plant native to China. It is used as part of traditional Chinese medicine to treat a variety of medical conditions. The dried root of the plant is used medicinally. Test-tube studies have found that atractylone -- one active ingredient in atractylodes -- is primarily responsible for the plant's medicinal benefits, including a remedy for diabetes. Like any herbal therapy, you should first consult your doctor before using atractylodes.


About Diabetes:

Diabetes is a condition of excessive accumulation of glucose in the blood.

Your body uses glucose as energy or fuel. Insulin is required to remove glucose from the blood and into the cells to be used as energy. In Type I diabetes, your body does not make adequate amounts of insulin to meet the body's needs. In Type II diabetes, your body makes insulin but cannot utilize it properly. In either case, insulin deficiency results in an increased concentration of glucose in your blood.



Investigators from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry in China suggested that atractylodes supplementation may help to bring blood sugar levels under control. A summary of their experiment was published in the journal "Acta Pharmaceutical Sinica" in June 2003. The study results concluded that the hypoglycemic activity of atractylodes is due to the presence of a complex polysaccharide called AMP-B.


Other Health Benefits of Atractylodes:

Atractylodes may be helpful in fungal and bacterial infections, according to Herbs Online. The herb produces anti-microbial substances that kill harmful bacteria, fungi and protozoa. Atractylodes supports the digestive system. It improves digestion and therefore may act as appetite stimulant. People who are underweight are encouraged to consume atractylodes supplements to gain some weight.

I bought two essential aroma oils and the delivery was very fast. I am happy that Vincent took the time to update me on the progress of the delivery. The oils were wrapped up well to ensure no breakage or spillage. I bought the AO Lavender and Lemon grass and they smelt good, not artificial at all. I am very happy and will definitely buy again.
