Turkey rhubarb is large, lobe-leafed plant native to Asia. Although it is a different species than the common garden variety of rhubarb, its leaves also contain oxalic acid and pose a risk of toxicity if ingested.

Similarly, like its North American cousin, Turkey rhubarb is harvested for its root to make infusions, tinctures and poultices. Powdered turkey rhubarb root is usually encapsulated as a dietary supplement

Turkey rhubarb, also known as Chinese rhubarb and Da Huang, is a flowering, herbaceous perennial native to the mountainous regions of western China. Like its North American cousin, the plant produces thick stalks from a large rhizome.

For more than 2,000 years, the roots of the plant have been used in China as a purgative and choleretic. In the west, the powdered herb is usually taken in supplement form to counter irregularity, although it can be prepared as a tea or tonic. Powdered Turkey rhubarb is also used topically for various skin conditions, often in combination with other powdered herbs like Oregon grape, licorice or goldenseal root.
