Pharmacological studies were conducted on Uncaria sinensis and Achyranthes bidentata both separately and combined. Comparison was made on the hypotensive effect on normal and renal-type hypertensive rats as well anti-spasmodic and sedative effects in mice. The results showed that Uncaria sinensis and Achyranthes bidentata have obvious synergic action in compatibility.
