Dong quai is one of the most respected plants for women, commonly taken to strengthen the blood and female organs. This perennial herb aids treating irregular periods, amenorrhoea (lack of menstruation), and dysmenorrhoea (severely painful menstruation). Dong quai root increases cellular absorption of estrogen and testosterone in the uterus, thus regulating hormonal imbalances.
This Asian medicinal tones the blood, and helps those suffering from general weakness, debility and circulatory disorders like heart palpitations and angina. Dong quai is also useful to treat coronary problems, rheumatism, ulcers, constipation, and mild anemia in men and women.
Scientific studies performed to unravel the actives in dong quai have found compounds called coumarins. These constituents are responsible for the positive effects of dong quai as a fever reducer, central nervous system (CNS) and uterine stimulator, anti-inflammatory, and muscle relaxant.
Prescribed by herbalists and naturopaths for anemia, PMS, and menopause, dong quai contains vitamins B12, E, and magnesium. These elements are important nutrients for proper nervous system function, and are usually deficient in menopausal women and PMS sufferers.
