Gardenia (Gardenia jasminosides) is a traditional Chinese medicine. The fruit is commonly used for medicinal purposes. Gardenia has a very bitter taste. The active constituents of Gardenia are iridoid glycosides (mostle geniposide and gardenoside), chlorogenic acid, and ursolic acid. For the most part, gardenia is commonly used in other formulas, to add a purging action.
