Bupleurum ( Bupleurum chinense ) is an ornamental plant which grows as tall as 3 feet, and resembles fennel or dill. It has elongated leaves and blooms in the summer with clusters of yellow-green flowers. The root is the part of the plant that is used to make herbal tinctures and extracts. This herb has been called several names including Chinese Thoroughwax, Chai Hu, Hare’s Ear Root, and Saiko.
Bupleurum is a revered natural herb that has been used for thousands of years in the Traditional Chinese System. . It was considered an herb that supports the flow of ‘chi’ which describes the Chinese concept of the flow of life force energy. In the Chinese system of health, there is a concept of ‘obstruction’ of chi which interferes with the optimum health of organs. Bupleurum has been recognized since ancient times to disperse the obstruction of chi and therefore clear heat from the liver system *. The liver is the largest organ in the body, and is tasked with a variety of important functions, including detoxification of toxins , production of bile, and utilization and metabolism of fats and fat soluble vitamins. Maintaining the liver in the best possible condition can help to support overall wellness. * The ancient traditional systems always incorporate an understanding of the importance of emotional and psychological balance as part of physical wellness. From that standpoint, Bupleurum is thought to help overcome internal psychological struggles that lead to the inability to “flow around” difficult situations.
Bupleurum has an array of active components, including saikosaponins (A,B,C, D) , Saikogenin (E, F, G), Saponins and Pyto-sterols. Both the individual components, and the whole herb, have been subjected to a large body of in depth scientific inquiry which has supported traditional use. *
