Compound Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis)
for premenstrual and menopause
100 capsules 150 mg
Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) is considered the best natural uterine tonic. Chinese women have relied on Dong Quai for natural health-care for several thousand years. Today, it is used throughout the world with a reputation, perhaps, second only to that of Ginseng.
Uses for Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis)
Dong quai is used primarily to treat menstrual complaints, such as menstrual pain and scanty menstruation. Studies have shown that dong quai is useful in treating other gynecologic complaints as well, including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and menstrual problems such as cramping and irregular cycles.
Though dong quai does not actually contain steroids or hormone molecules, one of its constituents is coumarin. Coumarin is most widely known for its use in preventing blood clotting. Coumarin compounds have an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic effect, especially on the uterus.
Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) also contains ferulic acid, a pain reliever and muscle relaxer. Indeed, the herb is often used to treat painful menstrual cramps or other cases of uterine spasms. Oddly enough, several studies have shown that dong quai acts as a muscle relaxant overall, but before it relaxes the uterus, it stimulates the uterus briefly.
