Cyperus (Cyperus articulatus)

The drug Adrue is the tuberous rhizome of the Guinea Rush a tall sedge, common in Jamaica, and on the banks of the Nile. The blackish-red, somewhat top-shaped tubers are 3/4 to 1 inch long, 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter, sometimes in a series of two or three, connected by an underground stem 1/8 inch in diameter and 1 to 2 inches long. Internally, the tubers are pale in colour, a transverse section showing a central column with darker points indicating vascular bundles. The dried tubers often bear the bristly remains of former leaves on their upper ends. The drug has a bitterish, aromatic taste, recalling that of Lavender. The odor of the fresh tubers has been likened to that of the Sweet Sedge, Calamus aromaticus. Medicinal Action and Uses Carminative and sedative. The aromatic properties of the drug cause a feeling of warmth to be diffused throughout the whole system and it acts as a sedative. In Chinese medicine Cyperus is a very commonly-used herb to regulate the liver qi. It is pungent, sweet, slightly bitter, and warm, and enters the liver and triple burner meridians. Cyperus is an effective and gentle herb for regulating the qi. It is warm and pungent but without a harsh and drying nature. It promotes liver qi movement, but without the possibility of injuring the yin and blood of the liver. Use The nuts are quite hard and are generally soaked in water before they can be eaten. They have various uses, in particular they are used in Spain to make Horchata. Horchatas are drinks made by steeping nuts, grains in water. They're usually lightly sweetened with sugar and sometimes spiced with cinnamon. Horchatas are generally served cold or at room temperature. A fluid extract is made from the tubers. Drink with caution.
