Murdannia loriformis, also known as 'Beijing Grass', is an exotic plant that comes from the Spiderwort family of plants. 

Beijing Grass is a low-lying grassy perennial ground cover, that grows and spreads very quickly. It can be overwintered easily indoors. The smooth leaves are about 3 to 6 inches long, and can be eaten raw, cooked or juiced. 

Murdannia loriformis has been used as an important healing herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. It is of much interest in medical research lately due to several claims in it's ability to fight cancer and other disease. 

There are several well researched and known medicinal uses of Beijing Grass. It helps supports and strengthens the immune system, detoxifies the body, and aids in respiratory healing. It is an effective anti-inflammatory. It is rich in flavonoids, Syringic Acid,  and Glycosphingolipids (G1B) which prevent free radicals and work to inhibit cancerous cells. It also is a useful expectorant, for the removal of mucus and phlegm.
