Bu Gu Zhi (Psoralea Fruit)
Bu Gu Zhi (Psoralea fruit); Psoralea corylifolia L.; Fructus Psoraleae
Mentioned as far back as 600 A.D. in Zhen Quan's Materia Medica, Psoralea, or Scuffy Pea as it is sometimes called, exhibits bitter and acrid properties and is very warm in energy. Literally meaning "tonify Bone Resin," this little fruit is commonly used to heal and strengthen the bone. It comes as no surprise then that Psoralea sits alongside other similar herbs in the Yang tonic family.
Bitter, acrid, very warm
