Zedoary is a plant. The underground stem (rhizome) is used to make medicine.

Traditional methods for preparing zedoary involve washing it with lots of water to remove most of the protein and water-soluble nutrients. The rinsing is also supposed to remove a poison that is yet to be identified.

Zedoary is used for colic, spasms, loss of appetite, and indigestion. Some people also use it for anxiety, stress, fatigue, and pain and swelling (inflammation).

Zedoary is sometimes applied directly to the skin to keep mosquitoes away.

There is not enough scientific information available to know how zedoary might work for medical conditions. Zedoary has not been studied in people. It has only been studied in animals or in test tubes. Some of this research suggests that zedoary can act like an antibiotic. It also might repel mosquitoes.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Colic.
Spasms.
Improving appetite and digestion.
Inflammation.
Anxiety and stress.
Fatigue.
Use as a mosquito repellent.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of zedoary for these uses.

There isn’t enough information to known whether zedoary is safe. So far, no harmful side effects have been reported.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It is UNSAFE to take zedoary if you are pregnant. There is concern that it might cause a miscarriage.

It’s also best to avoid zedoary if you are breast-feeding, since there isn’t enough scientific information to know how it might affect a nursing infant.

Heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia): Some experts suggest that zedoary should not be used by women who have heavy menstrual periods.
