Traditional Chinese Medicinal (TCM) Uses:*

Yin Chen Hao has been used in Chinese herbal medicine for over 2,000 years and is considered to be a bitter and cooling herb, clearing "damp heat" from the liver and gall ducts and relieving fevers[254].*

Artemisia Capillaris is an effective remedy for liver problems, being specifically helpful in treating hepatitis with jaundice[254]. Modern research has confirmed that the plant has a tonic and strengthening effect upon the liver, gallbladder and digestive system[254].*

The leaves and young shoots are antibacterial, anticholesterolemic, antiviral, cholagogue, diuretic, febrifuge and vasodilator[147, 176, 178, 218]. An infusion is used internally in the treatment of jaundice, hepatitis, gall bladder complaints and feverish illnesses[238].*

Externally it has been applied in the form of a plaster for treating headaches[254]. The plant is harvested in late spring and can be dried for later use[238]. Yin Chen Hao is contraindicated for pregnant women[254].*
