Starwest Botanicals, Atractylodes, Slices, 1 lb Whole Herb
Botanical Name: Atractylodes macrocephala
Common Names: Cang Zhu, Bai Zhu
Known to the scientific community as atractylodis macrocephalae, these sliced organic herbs resemble some kind of wild mushroom, but are in fact a form of whole natural herbs that are derived from the roots of a plant which grows in the mountain valleys of northern China, Manchuria, Korea and Japan. Practitioners of TCM associate atractylodis macrocephalae with qi, or "life-force," the closest Western equivalent of which would be the immune system. In the traditional Chinese system of herbalism, atractylodes-slices are considered "warm" and "dry" (in the sense that it is said to remove "excess dampness" from the digestive and intestinal tract), and is therefore one of the "yin" herbs.

About Starwest Botanicals
Starwest Botanicals started as a small retail herb shop in 1975 in Sacramento, California. The company grew rapidly on the strength of our commitment to provide value through a combination of quality products, excellent customer service, and fair prices. In 1979, Starwest built its first herb mill to have better control over the processing of herbs. In 1980, the company began importing herbs from several different countries and supplying manufacturers and wholesalers, while also supporting the fledgling organic herb industry. Today, Starwest Botanicals is one of the largest suppliers of organic herbs in the United States, with 85,000 sq. ft. of modern warehouse and production space and over one million pounds of herbs and spices in stock.
