Cyperus rotundus/ Xiang Fu
Cyperus is well known for regulating menstruation and reducing symptoms such as cramps, breast tenderness, and mood changes.
How it Heals
In Chinese Medicine, Cyperus spreads and regulates liver qi, which regulates the menstrual cycle and alleviates pain. It also protects the stomach from ulcers.
In Western medicine, Cyperus is considered a powerful antioxidant that can even be used as a local anesthetic. It has antibacterial, antidiarrheal, and anti-inflammatory properties, and supports healthy function of the heart, liver, and brain.
Fun Fact: Cyperus rotundus is closely related to Cyperus papyrus, which is the source of papyrus paper, one of the first types of paper ever made.
“Also called Nut Grass, Cyperus rotundus is a very traditional herb for any gynecological condition, especially as they relate to stress, which can lead to irregular menstruation and an increase of cycle-related symptoms.”
