    *Ku Shen bulk herb we sell is of premium quality. Our bulk Chinese herbs are mostly wild harvested but some herbs are farm grown to protect their natural habitats and meet increasing market demands. The harvests of right species at proper maturity are identified by experienced professionals, cleaned, cut or sliced, and dried. In many cases, special processing methods such as soaking with rice wine, steaming, roasting are applied as mandated by traditional Chinese medicine traditions to prepare the Chinese herbs to achieve desired properties, enhance efficacy, and reduce toxicity.


      Use single Chinese herbs or herbal extracts with caution. Professional advice is suggested.

    Sophora Root (Ku Shen) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Ku Shen I was introduced to Ku Shen by my daughter who uses it on my grandson for his eczema. I decided to buy the root for my puppies who had a skin condition because of hook worms they got from the mother. I've used it for 4 weeks and the skin on their tails is nearly cleared up and the hair is growing again. I am very pleased with this product.
