    Corydalis is a Chinese herb that has been proven to naturally help relieve chronic pain; it's not addictive and you can't develop a tolerance to it. Watch oriental medicine expert Daniel Hsu, DAOM, discuss the benefits of corydalis supplements.
  • Various types of corydalis have been included in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) preparations and are most commonly used for the treatment of gastritis-like disorders. Corydalis has been studied for other medical conditions, including pain caused by intense cold, parasitic infections, irregular heart rhythms, chest pain, and bacterial infections (especially from Helicobacter pylori). There is currently not enough human evidence to support these or any uses of corydalis.

    Corydalis may interact with certain medications, including sedatives, hypnotics, drugs taken for irregular heart rhythms, some pain relievers, and anti-cancer drugs and may be unsafe for use during pregnancy.
