Zhi Mu / Rhizoma Anemarrhenae
Zhi Mu is a cooling herb that makes it especially great for perimenopausal symptoms like heat flashes and night sweats.
How it Heals
In Chinese Medicine, Zhi Mu nourishes the yin, reduces fire, moistens dryness, and lubricates the intestines.
In Western medicine, Zhi Mu supports respiratory health, promotes the expulsion of phlegm, benefits oral health, eases low back pain, promotes urination, and supports healthy blood glucose levels.
Fun fact: Due to the fact that Zhi Mu is a cooling herb that helps to clear heat and sedate fire, it is the perfect herb for those who experience night sweats or hot flashes.
Being of Cantonese descent, Zhi Mu is used in soups to help cool the body. I like combining it with lotus root and lotus nut to calm my body of any anxiety.
