Why Not? Chinese Yam (Shan Yao) 有机山药, 100g

Why Not?®


Tonifies the Qi

Spleen, kidney & lung

Why Not? Chinese Yam (Shan Yao) is used for patterns of qi deficiency. They are particularly beneficial to the spleen, kidneys and lungs.

Spleen assists in digestion, blood and fluid metabolism in our body while Kidneys regulate the urinary system and play a key role in the reproductive system, growth and aging of our body.

Lungs play a key part in the production of qi and body fluids that nourish the body. They are “neutral” in nature, so they will not affect our balance of yin & yang with frequent consumption.
