Chinese Herb: Dang Shen Root (Codonopsis Root)

Pilose Asia Bell Root; Codonopsis Pilosula; Radix Codonopsis

Codonopsis root is a very important Qi tonic, especially to the Spleen and Lungs and is oftentimes used as a replacement/substitute to Ginseng, and in many famous tonifying formulas. It is not overpowering or as strong as Ginseng, but smoother and milder in action. In some cases, it is a more suitable herb for the situation than Ginseng. Aside from being milder in its action and warmth, Codonopsis is also significantly cheaper than Ginseng, which provides additional appeal as a substitute. The Dang Shen root herb is sweet and neutral in energy.

We offer a premium grade quality of the Dang Shen herb, as well as a slightly less expensive 2nd grade, selectable in the below menu.
