Introduction to White Peony Root

White Peony Root can be taken in two different methods, either dried or charred. Both have different properties but either way, White Peony Root is one of the most highly prized.  White Peony Root is a very common ingredient for traditional Chinese medicine.
There is an old Chinese saying "women who consume White Peony Root regularly will become as beautiful as the Peony flower". 

How White Peony Root Is Used

White Peony Root is generally supplied in a powder, capsules or concentrate. It can be taken as a tea, and is generally taken with other herbs.

Possible Side Effects of White Peony Root

White Peony Root is generally considered to be pretty safe, although it should be avoided by anyone who is suffering from diarrhea due to cancer or AIDS. You must also remember that this herb is pretty cold, so it should only be used with caution in cases of extreme cold or Yang deficiency. Do not use if pregnant or nursing
