- Chinese Goldenthread - Some practitioners suggest using certain herbs to strengthen the liver. These herbs include Chinese goldenthread.
- Tangerine (Citrus reticulata) - The Tangerine (Citrus reticulata) is an orange-colored citrus fruit, a type of mandarin orange.
- Magnolia (Magnolia Officinalis) - dried bark of various magnolias; used in folk medicine
- Licorice (glycyrrhiza glabra) - Originally from central Europe, licorice now grows all across Europe and Asia. The root is used medicinally. Licorice has a long and highly varied record of uses. It was and remains one of the most important herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. Among the most consistent and important uses are as a demulcent (soothing, coating agent) in the digestive and urinary tracts, to help with coughs, to soothe sore throats, and as a flavoring.
- Green Citrus (Citrus reticulata) - The Mandarin orange is a small citrus tree (Citrus reticulata) with fruit resembling the orange. The fruit is oblate, rather than spherical, and roughly resembles a pumpkin in shape. Mandarin oranges are usually eaten plain or in fruit salads. Varieties of mandarin orange include the tangerine, clementine, dancy, tangor, satsuma and several new varieties recently released by UCR such as the Goldnugget.
- Ginger (Zingiber officinale) - contains a number of pungent compounds known as gingerols, shogaols, and zingerone. The medical effects of these pungent compounds have been shown to be effective in treating motion sickness and nausea. Ginger is able to calm the stomach, promote bile flow, and improve the appetite. It is a very effective antibiotic agent and strong antioxidant.
- Pinellia (Pinellia tamata) - The effect of taste stimulation of Pinellia temata, Zingiberis rhizoma and their mixture on the efferent activity of the gastric branch of the vagus nerve was observed in the anesthetized rat. Taste stimulation by Pinellia ternata (50 mg/ml, 10 min) resulted in a suppression in vagal gastric nerve activity. On the contrary, stimulation by Zingiberis rhizoma (50 mg/ml, 10 min) caused a facilitation in efferent activity. The mixture of Pinellia ternata and Zingiberis rhizoma (5:1, 50 mg/ml, 10 min stimulation) demonstrated no suppressive effect on gastric nerve activity. These observations indicate that it is reasonable to prescribe Pinellia ternata with Zingiberis rhizoma in traditional Japanese medicine to prevent suppressive effect of the taste of Pinellia ternata on gastric function.
- Black Jujube (Ziziphus jujuba) - Z. jujuba, having palmately veined leaves, spiny stipules, small yellowish flowers, and dark red fruit. The fleshy, edible drupe of this tree. Also called Chinese date. A fruit-flavored, usually chewy candy or lozenge.
