The sliced form of Du Zhong is thin sheet of the bark. Though the size of thickness varies slightly, I would say that the overall sheet of the bark is less than 1/4 of an inch. As shown in the picture above, it has a tread-like contour. This is the thin form, which can easily been broken into pieces. Making a decoction from this form will take slightly less time than the thicker form, which is about 1/2 inch thick.

Traditional Chinese Herbs encompasses the use of different parts of plants, such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds. These plant parts are often used as a tea, decoctions, extracts, made into capsules or even a footbath. These bulk herbs should be regarded as an added feature to modern western healthcare, and not as a replacement. Chinese traditional herbs ( Teas ) emphasize harmony and balance.
We encourage you to educate yourself on herbs and supplements, by researching reputable sites, and books.
