codonopsis root

Codonopsis is a vine-like perennial with small, bell-shaped flowers that is found in forests and shrubby thickets throughout Asia, where it is commonly called dang shen. The herb is sometimes used as a less costly alternative to Panax ginseng because it has similar adaptogenic qualities. For this reason, codonopsis is also known as bastard ginseng and poor man’s ginseng.

The plant is harvested for its roots from specimens that are at least three years old. Although it is typically decocted to prepare teas, infusions and tonics, some Chinese also cook it with rice as a tonic food.
