Fritillaria is part of the lily family. It is a perennial, flowering plant that grows in the meadows and on the mountain slopes of Nepal and China. Several species of fritillaria are used medicinally; the plant’s bulb is processed and used in various herbal formulas.

In traditional Chinese medicine, fritillaria is called Chuan bei mu. It has bitter, sweet, and slightly cold properties. The bulb’s white color is thought to affect the heart and lung meridians, so it is used in traditional Chinese medicine to support lung health.
