Corydalis yanhusuo (yan hu suo)


According to an article published January 4, 2014 in the University Herald (a publication that focuses on what’s happening at higher education institutions around the world), animal studies are confirming that Dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB), a compound derived from the roots of the traditional Chinese herb Yan Hu Suo is an effective treatment for pain.

Eventually, after many more trials, pharmaceutical companies may be able to use this extract  to provide something that is not narcotic and doesn’t lose efficiency like opiates to treat acute, inflammatory and neuropathic pain.  Eventually.

Meanwhile, you could buy the herb in bulk, make a tea, and use it as it’s been used traditionally for a few thousand years.
