Overview

Evodia is a tree that is native to China and Korea. Evodia fruit is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The fruit and root bark are also used as medicine in other herbal practice.

Evodia is used for digestion problems like diarrhea and vomiting, as well as for headache and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support any of its uses.

How does it work ?

Chemicals contained in evodia might have several effects in the body. They might decrease pain and swelling (inflammation), decrease diarrhea, decrease blood pressure, stimulate the heart, and have many other effects. But these effects have only been shown in animals. There is not enough information to know if evodia has these effects in people.
