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.
