Polygala Root’s Wondrous Benefits for the Body

Polygala root has a deserved reputation in China as a super herb. It was used by monks in Asia thousands of years ago. They believed that the herb had major benefits both for the spirit and body.

Polygala root usually is used to naturally calm the body as it relaxes your mind, calms the emotions, and improves sleep. Many people think that the herb can help to think more creatively and to come up with better ideas. Also, the herb may possess a key libido stimulant for men and women.

The Latin name for this root is ‘radix polygalae,’ and its Chinese name is Yuan Zhi. It is often found in meadows and on hills in eastern Asia, generally in China, Korea and Mongolia. As with many herbs, this root is dug out, and roots are extracted and carefully washed and then dried.

The root comes from the Polygala Senega root, which has round, leafy stems that are up to 12 inches tall. The leaves are smooth and pointed and usually have a bright green color. This root, when fresh, has a smell that is akin to wintergreen. In reality, the fragrance is 0.1% methyl salicylate. Active ingredients in the herb are several types of triterpenoid saponins. These complex ingredients have been studies in clinical research and are thought to produce the following benefits in humans:

  • A natural calming herb that helps to soothe the nervous system and make us less anxious
  • A stimulant that positively affects the membranes of the respiratory system. It also promotes good flow of saliva and phlegm expectoration.
  • May be useful in the reduction of symptoms for asthma and bronchial issues. It can make it easier to cough up mucous.
  • Contains various stimulatory properties that can benefit the circulatory system and uterus

Ancient cultures thought that polygala root helped with sexual vitality, by opening up energy flows between the heart and kidneys. It was thought if this channel of energy was blocked, there would be less connection between sexual energy and emotions. While this is entirely speculative, it does seem that the root can help to increase feelings of sexual satisfaction, which in turn makes us happier overall.
