How it Heals

In Chinese medicine, Corydalis invigorates blood, promotes the movement of qi, and alleviates pain of all kinds. 

In Western medicine, Corydalis is used to relieve pain and has antiulcer properties. Corydalis also improves blood flow by increasing the diameter of blood vessels. 

Fun Fact: Corydalis is related to the opium poppy—however, it’s not addictive. All the benefits, none of the risks!


“The tuber is where a plant stores its nutrients. When we see a plant with a bright yellow tuber, it’s a clear indication that it contains a high concentration of alkaloids, and Corydalis is no exception.”

— Dr. Nicole, co-founder
