Benefits & Information of Zhi Ke

In traditional Chinese medicine Zhi Ke is used to move the qi, soothe the middle energizer and chest, and relieve distention. Zhi Ke is thought to focus on the health concerns of the chest, stomach, diaphragm, skin, and hair. Zhi Ke has a less purgative effect than immature bitter orange, allowing for a gentler effect. Mature bitter orange eases congestion and phlegm in the chest to support respiratory health and relieves stagnation in the stomach and intestines to promote digestive health.

The cut form of Zhi Ke can be used to make a decoctiontincture, or tea. Powdered Zhi Ke is perfect to make your own fresh, filler free, Zhi Ke capsules or compress.
