About Stephania Root
Han Fang Ji/Fang Ji has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese Medicine and has a wide range of beneficial properties. It has therapeutic benefits for several medical conditions. Stephania contains various chemical compounds, including glycosides and volatile oils. In Japan, stephania is used as a pain reliever, and to treat inflammation and stiffness of the shoulders and back. Its properties from traditional Chinese medicine include bitter, acrid, cold, bladder, spleen, and kidney. Key functions of the root include inducing diuresis to alleviate edema and expelling wind to alleviate pain. Modern studies have shown that stephania root contains Tetrandrine, a bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid. This is the alkaloid that gives Stephania root its potency, as Tetrandrine.
