Notopterygium is a type of plant native to east Asia, a relative of the angelica species. The name qiang huo refers to Qiang Zhong, an area in China where the plant grows naturally. The roots and rhizome are used in herbal preparations. First, they are collected during the winter and spring, then cleaned. Any fibrous rootlets are removed. The roots are then allowed to dry naturally and cut into slices for medicinal use.
In traditional Chinese medicine, notopterygium root is associated with the Urinary Bladder and Kidney meridians, and has pungent, bitter and warm properties. It is used to disperse cold, unblock painful obstructions caused by wind/damp/cold pain, and serves as a guiding herb to the governing vessel and greater yang channels. Occasionally, notopterygium is used with other herbs, such as ledebouriella and atractylodes for wind-cold exterior syndrome, and with ledebouriella and turmeric for wind-cold-damp bi syndromes.
