Dong Quai is a vital herb for women in Chinese medicine.
|Botanical Name||Angelica sinensis|
|Ingredients||Dong Quei Powder|
Dong Quai has been used in Asia for thousands of years as a tonic for the female reproductive system. In fact, it ranks just below ginseng as the most popular herb in China and Japan, although its effectiveness has yet to be substantiated by conventional Western practices.
Dong Quai is derived from the gnarled root of the Chinese perennial Angelica sinensis and the root of the native Japanese A. acutiloba. Both species have eightfoot hollow stems graced by umbrellashaped clusters of white flowers. When in bloom, the blossoms resemble Queen's Anne lace, a botanical cousin. Interestingly, European and American angelica species are used medicinally as well, but for a different constellation of symptoms altogether, none of them gynecological.
Dong Quai has active ingredients called coumarins are responsible for its effectiveness. Helpful in relieving PMS and menstrual irregularities. Dong Quai's reputation as a female tonic rests largely with its ability to reduce the symptoms of PMS and regulate the menstrual cycle.
Limit your exposure to the sun when taking dong Quai, especially if you are fairskinned; it contains substances called psoralens that can react with sunlight to cause a rash or severe sunburn.
