Rehmannia glutinosa has many benefits, but these types of people should not eat it

1. People with spleen and stomach deficiency


2. People with stagnant Qi and excessive phlegm

The above 3 kinds of people should not eat Rehmannia glutinosa. Although Rehmannia glutinosa is mild in nature, it is made from Rehmannia glutinosa after all.

In addition, there are taboos for taking Rehmannia glutinosa: the three whites cannot be eaten together

white radish, scallion white, and scallion white, these three Bai is pungent in taste, and pungent channeling qi.
