Cornus can be deciduous shrubs or trees, or creeping, woody-based perennials, some with brightly coloured young stems. Tiny flowers are borne in dense clusters.

It is native to Northeast China, Japan and Korea. It is a Medium-sized tree, growing up to about 8 m. Small yellow flowers appear in February/March, followed by shiny red edible fruiting berries.

Shan Zhu Yu has been used for at least 2,000 years in Chinese herbal medicine.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Antibacterial – The fruit has antibacterial actions, inhibiting the growth of Bacillus dysenteriae and Staphylococcus.

Astringent –Cornus is used principally to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and unusually active secretions.

Diuretic – It is also used to treat copious sweating and excessive urination.  Like all herbs that suppress bodily fluids (even excessive ones), it will simply prolong or lead to a worsening of symptoms if it is used without tonic or detoxifying herbs. It is, therefore, normally used in combination with herbs such as Rehmannia glutinosa.

Sexual Health – with its ability to supress excessive bodily secretions, Cornus is used in Chinese Herbal Medicine to aid Spermatorrhea.



Product is supplied in amber PET bottles with tamper evident screw tops.
