Water Plantain / Ze Xie
WHY WE LOVE IT
Water Plantain reduces inflammation but is mainly used to complement and support the healing effects of other herbs.
How it heals
In Chinese Medicine, Water Plantain works to drain Kidney Deficiency Fire and dampness.
In Western medicine, Water Plantain works to reduce inflammation and water retention, and induces apoptosis. It’s also known to support the liver and immune system, and has anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
Fun fact: Water Plantain is a beautiful plant that resembles a leafy water lily, often spotted in ponds and lakes. But it’s the underground rhizome that’s sought after for TCM purposes.
HOW WE USE IT
Ze Xie was added along with Zhi Mu to help nourish yin and clear yin deficiency heat. Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan is a classical Chinese herbal formula that contains Ze Xie and Zhi Mu, along with the following herbs that are also found in Elix Cycle Balance: Foxglove, Moutan, and Poria.
