How to cook pharmacy
After the beginning of autumn, many people are pondering to drink some soup to supplement the body.
However, Liu Yuning, chief physician of the First Affiliated Hospital of Peking University, reminded that the tonic drugs should be supplemented by syndromes and replaced under the guidance of doctors.
At the same time, you should learn how to take medicine before drinking medicine, especially the details of some medicines, which will affect the efficacy of medicine.
It is not a matter of living habits when the volatile medicine is covered with the lid to cook the medicine. It is not a matter of living habits. Different medicines, the effect of opening the lid and covering the lid are really different.
Some volatile herbs, if open, the active ingredients will be released into the air with water vapor, and the efficacy will be greatly discounted.
Such volatile medicinal materials are easily identifiable, usually osmotic or aromatized wet drugs such as peppermint, sage, musk, etc., and the boiling time should not be too long.
Another example is some tonic drugs such as ginseng, velvet antler, and American ginseng. It needs to be slowly fried in a container for a long time to effectively and effectively boil it. It should also be covered to prevent the ingredients from slowing down.The sputum lost with water vapor.
Some light-weight, bulky medicinal materials, such as money grass, senna, etc., if the peony container is not large enough, the cover is easy to make the liquid overflow.
In addition, some medicinal materials that are not easy to dissolve need to be stirred frequently when suffering. It is best not to cover them with one kind of medicine.
Of course, it is best to follow a direction quickly, so that the medicinal material is evenly heated, so that the active ingredients are completely dissolved, and the tumbling is generally repeated once every 10 minutes.
The fake boiled medicine is a little bit better for a while. In the general impression, it is boiled, but some herbs, such as ginseng, Tianqi, achyranthes, licorice, and platycodon, will have a false boiling phenomenon.The drug begins to boil when the temperature does not reach 100 ° C. If the drug is taken off the fire at this time, the active ingredients in the drug are not dissolved, and the drug effect is hindered.
Boiled medicine needs to use boiled water. Now people have some “lazy” medicine, and use tap water to use it directly.
In fact, the water of the peony can not save the trouble, or to use the boiled water to cool before use, because tap water in some places is mostly disinfected with chlorine, more or less residual, while the calcium and magnesium ions of the tap water are dissolved.It is easy to react with compounds in medicinal materials and affect the efficacy.
