In traditional Chinese medicine, white atractylodes root (Bai Zhu) is commonly used to tonify spleen qi, augments qi, dry dampness, induce diuresis, and arrest sweating. Bai Zhu which is raw (uncooked atractylodes) can be used to promote urination and is a great natural remedy for a variety of ailments. Alternative medicine uses Bai Zhu for fatigue, lack of appetite, edema, diarrhea, and nausea.
When Bai Zhi is cooked, it produces a more astringent product which is used to inhibit spontaneous sweating. It is an excellent herbal remedy! Some recent studies have shown that atractylodes help to speed up the healing of intestinal injuries (Song et. al, 2015). Another study showed that an active constituent known as ATL-1 from Atractylodes macrocephala has anti-tumor properties (Liu et. al, 2013).
