Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) Dong Quai 500mg - 60count - $7.99

                       Dong quai is an aromatic herb that grows in China, Korea, and Japan. The
                       reputation of Don quai is second only to Ginseng and is considered the ultimate,
                       all-purpose woman's tonic herb. It is used for almost every gynecological
                       complaint from regulating the menstrual cycle to treating menopausal symptoms
                       caused by hormonal changes. 

                       Dong quai is frequently used by the Chinese as a strengthening treatment for the
                       heart, spleen, liver and kidneys. Both men and women use the herb as a general
                       blood tonic. 

                       Dong quai contains vitamins E, A and B12. Researchers have isolated at least
                       six coumarin derivatives that exert antispasmodic and vasodilatory effects.
                       Antispasmodics are a remedy for menstrual cramps. The essential oil in dong
                       quai contains Ligustilide, butylphthalide and numerous other minor components.
                       Ferulic acid and various polysaccharides are also found in dong quai's root.
                       These elements can prevent spasms, reduce blood clotting and relax peripheral
                       blood vessels. Research has shown that don quai produces a balancing effect on
                       estrogen activity. 

                       Modern treatments prescribe the herb to combat PMS and to help women
                       resume normal menstruation after using birth control pills. 

                       The herb has been found useful in balancing and treating many female systems
                       and cycles. Dong quai's constituents can act to stimulate the central nervous
                       system which can remedy weakness and headaches associated with menstrual
                       disorders. It strengthens internal reproductive organs, helps with endometriosis
                       and internal bleeding or bruising. It relieves menopausal conditions such as
                       vaginal dryness and hot flashes. 

                       The herb has also been used as a blood purifier, to promote blood circulation
                       and nourish the blood in both sexes. It is high in iron content and may help to
                       prevent iron deficiency and anemia. Studies show that it can aid in regulating
                       blood sugar and in lowering blood pressure. 

                       Dong quai has a mild sedative effect which can relieve stress and calms the
                       nerves. It has also be used to stimulate the uterus during childbirth, treat
                       insomnia, alleviate constipation and for migraine headaches. 

                       Parts Used: Whole root. Found in tea, herbal preparations, capsules, extract
                       and recipes. 

                       Common Use: The root has earned a reputation as the "ultimate herb" for
                       women. It is used to restore balance to a woman's hormones and cycles and is
                       helpful in restoring menstrual regularity and for conditions of the reproductive
                       system. It is not recommended during pregnancy, for women with excessive
                       menstrual flow or for people taking blood thinning agents.
