Also called Bastard Ginseng or Bellflower, Codonopsis pilosula is a perennial climber from the Campanulaceae family. Native to NE Asia. Named for the Greek words ‘kodon’ (bell) and ‘opsis’ (resemblance) because of the bell shaped flowers.
Cultivated widely in China for its roots, Dang Shen is highly regarded in TCM as a substitute for Ginseng. It is used as an energy tonic. The root and the whole plant are used as an adaptogen, appetizer, digestive, galactogogue, sialagogue, stomachic and tonic.
