Poria is a unique saprophytic fungal tuber found growing underground on decaying pine roots. It is revered in Classical Chinese herbalism as a beauty tonic and is known to clear dampness from the middle jiao and produce an overall calming effect. We've heard fables of women within the Chinese nobility who would primarily eat a diet of Poria to keep a slim figure with illustrious healthy skin.
Fu Ling Poria, the white fleshy outer portion of the sclerotium, is traditionally thought to benefit the middle and lower jiaos (the digestive organs and organs of elimination).
Fu Shen Spirit Poria, the innermost portion of the sclerotium that contains the pine root hostwood, is considered a special Shen tonic that offers the bonus actions of calming the heart and spirit.
Poria has been extensively studied for it's anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating benefits (1). It is commonly thought of as a diuretic in Traditional Chinese Medicine, however, it also possesses vastly multidirectional actions, making it a great daily tonic for balancing some constitutions. It is often used in conjunction with other herbs to clear dampness from the body, tonifying the kidneys and invigorating the middle jiao (midsection).
