Cnidium monnieri


Cnidium monnieri is one of the most effective and commonly used herbs to activate qi and blood circulation. Cnidium monnieri has incredible ascending, descending, and dispersing functions and reaches every part of the body. Cnidium is one of the essential herbs to approach gynecological disorders. Cnidium monnieri is also added to blood-tonic herbs to prevent any stagnating side effects. Be sure to combine Xanthoparmelia scabrosa herb and or lichen (from bark) with Cnidium monnieri; they work very well together.

Studies show Cnidium monnieri enriches sexual dysfunction in animal research. Chinese professionals have long prescribed Cnidium monnieri for treating erectile dysfunction. Animal studies reveal that Cnidium monnieri appears to be active on both the manhood (penis) tissues and other ordinary erectile dysfunction pills.

Cnidium Medicinal Uses

Cnidium monnieri is very effective at assisting the body in treating erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE). Specific compounds present in Cnidium monnieri, such as “osthole,” helps with a firm and or strong erections. Done by allowing more blood flow to the penis and dilating the corpus cavernosa of the penis with the release of nitric oxide.

In China, the fruits of Cnidium monnieri are used to excite the discharge of urine, to induce menses, and to treat rheumatism, kidney diseases, indigestion, dysentery, urogenital infection, hemorrhoids, and skin diseases. Cnidium monnieri plant is also used as a sedative.

Cnidium Constituents

Cnidium monnieri. Cusson contains series of coumarins, including bergapten, osthol, and imperatorin.

Obstetric Gynecological Disorders

Cnidium monnieri has an excellent function to regulate blood circulation and is commonly used to treat gynecological disorders such as irregular menstruation, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, unmanageable labor, and postpartum abdominal pain caused by lingering blood stagnation. Menstruation is related to the Chong (thoroughfare) channel, which is the point from which all twelve channels emerge and is thus considered the “sea of blood.” Cnidium monnieri, with its descending influence, enters the Chong channel to regulate qi and blood circulation and normalize menstruation.

Pharmacological Effects


Cnidium monnieri dilates blood vessels to lower blood pressure, increases blood perfusion to coronary arteries, and decreases oxygen consumption by the cardiac muscle.


Administration of Cnidium monnieri is associated with increased blood perfusion and reduced swelling of the brain. It is generally used to treat disorders such as cerebral ischemia, migraine headache, and Alzheimer’s disease.


Oral administration of Cnidium monnieri to mice and rats has a sedative effect on the central nervous system, as it decreases motor activities, counteracts the stimulating effects produced by caffeine, and prolongs phenobarbital-induced sleeping time.

Cnidium effects on the smooth muscle

Cnidium monnieri influences the smooth muscle of the uterus and intestines. At small dosages, Cnidium monnieri leads to mild contractions and or spasms of the smooth muscle. At larger dosages, Cnidium monnieri causes numbness and inhibits contraction of smooth muscle.

Cnidium provides anti-itch relief

Antihistamines and anti-allergic drugs are often employed for treating itching caused by such skin disorders like atopic dermatitis. Persistent scratching isn’t just a hassle, but it could lead to raised areas of the skin that may bleed or become contaminated. In an attempt to find itch relief from natural resources, researchers investigated the effectiveness of ethanol extract of dried Cnidium monnieri fruit.

Animal studies reveal Cnidium monnieri has an antiosteoporotic effect

Osteoporosis, which is the reduction of bone mass, affects the estimated 10 million Americans, and according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, roughly 1 in 10 women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to this condition.

Researchers in Shanghai, China conducted a study to evaluate the consequences of total coumarins from the fruits of Cnidium monnieri on ovariectomized rats (a research design for menopause).

The results showed that Cnidium monnieri not only slowed down the breakdown of bone but also stimulated bone functioning.

Cnidium has the anti-inflammatory possibility

In the May 2017 edition dilemma of the International Journal of Chemical Sciences, researchers reported on their discovery of 3 new coumarins isolated by the fruit of Cnidium monnieri, together with 14 called compounds. Their analysis reveals that some of these bioactive isolates may be further developed as possible candidates for the treatment of various inflammatory diseases.

Cnidium has antidiabetic activity in mice

Researchers at a 2009 study attempted to investigate the effects of the osthole in mice. The outcomes released in Chemico-Biological Interactions demonstrated that osthole considerably triggered both PPARalpha and PPARgamma (therapeutic goals frequently utilized to improve hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes) at a dose-dependent method. Additionally, obese mice treated by osthole by different administered channels were found to possess significantly reduced blood sugar levels. Researchers are hopeful that osthole can facilitate hyperglycemia and might be potentially developed to medication for the treatment of diabetes mellitus.
