Overview

Corydalis yanhusuo is flowering plant that grows in mild climates throughout the northern hemisphere. It's used in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The root and tuber of the Corydalis yanhusuo plant are used in medicine. They contain chemicals that might help fight certain infections in the stomach.

People use Corydalis yanhusuo for constipation, indigestion, acid reflux, headache, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Don't confuse Corydalis yanhusuo with other species that might be generally called Corydalis. These are not the same.

Corydalis yanhusuo contains a potent alkaloid called tetrahydropalmatine (THP), which has been found to possess analgesic and sedative properties, making it potentially useful in the treatment of pain and sleep disorders.
