In traditional Chinese medicine, glehnia root is primarily known for being a remedy for cough and is used to clear phlegm from the lungs. The roots, which represent the primary medicinal features of the plant, are dug, boiled in water, and peeled off. They have soaked again and cut into pieces, becoming the basis for this plant’s medicinal process. Glehnia root is also used to relieve pain, treat fevers, induce perspiration, and is used in Korea for the treatment of migraine headaches. It is also used for its antibacterial properties and to promote the generation of body fluids.
