Ejiao has nourishing and moisturizing properties. It is used to treat anemia, blood deficiency and dryness in lungs. For a person with disorders such as dry cough, insomnia and dizziness due to blood deficiency, dryness or pulmonary tuberculosis, ejiao is often used to relieve the symptoms by tonifying blood and moistening lungs.
