Bupleurum Root C/S
Botanical Name: Bupleurum radix chinesis
Bupleurum is a plant. People use the root for medicine.
Bupleurum is used for respiratory infections, including the flu (influenza), swine flu, the common cold, bronchitis, and pneumonia; and symptoms of these infections, including fever and cough.
Some people use bupleurum for digestion problems including indigestion, diarrhea, and constipation.
Women sometimes use it for premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and painful periods (dysmenorrhea).
Bupleurum is also used for fatigue, headache, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), trouble sleeping (insomnia), depression, liver disorders, and loss of appetite (anorexia).
Bupleurum is included in many herbal combination products. For example, it is included in a Chinese herbal formula used for treating a blood disorder called thrombocytopenic purpura and in a Japanese herbal formula (Sho-saiko-to, TJ-9, Xiao-chai-hu-tang) used for treating various chronic liver diseases such as hepatitis.
Bupleurum is also used in combination with Panax ginseng and licorice to help stimulate adrenal gland function, particularly in patients with a history of long-term use of corticosteroid drugs.
Bupleurum might stimulate the cells of the immune system to work harder. It might also have other effects, but none of these are proven in humans.
