In TCM, it is known as an excellent herb to use in a tonic program by those who need to stimulate fluid function, so long as you do not have a cold constitution. Alisma is a natural diuretic. It helps the body to shed excess retained water.  It is often combined with other herbs to create formulas used for kidney and bladder problems.*
