Rhubarb Root is also called "Greater Yellow Root" after a story about an herbalist, Dr. Five Yellow, who prescribed it often. Rhubarb is a potent purgative with ancillary action to activate Blood Circulation and resolve stasis, when combined with the proper herbs. This root is bitter and exhibits a cold energy, and enters the Spleen, Stomach, Large Intestine, Liver, and Heart meridians.
