One of the world’s most celebrated and effective herbs for women’s health, Dong Quai powder (Angelica Sinensis), is native to many Asian countries. It has been (and still is!) used in both medical and folk medicine situations in China and India and modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda.
Even today, in parts of Asia, Dong Quai powder is administered and used for treatment in just as serious of a manner as mainstream conventional medicines! Some doctors prescribe it for menstrual disorders, menopause, uterine cramping or pain, and other complaints.
Dong Quai Estrogen
Dong Quai has a strong and wide-reputed effect on women’s health and hormones compared to most other natural remedies. This is why it has earned the nickname “female ginseng” – in some cases. It works just like a ginseng-like adaptogen for the female reproductive system and wellness.
It contains “phytoestrogens,” very helpful plant compounds that mimic human estrogen. Dong Quai is the herb for women to look to when they need to call in for reinforcements. For ages, its effects on health have been acknowledged as very powerful and supported by empirical and scientific knowledge.
Dong Quai and black cohosh may help with and support:
- Menstrual cramps
- Uterine pain
- PMS symptoms
- Hormone-related mood swings
- Toning the uterus and other organs
- Delayed or absent menstruation
- Low estrogen levels
- Menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes)
- Heavy, light, or any irregular menstrual bleeding
- Overall female health as an herbal tonic or adaptogen
- Move blood/get rid of blood clots.
Do not use Dong Quai if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. On the other hand, if you hope to use it for pre-or post-natal care, consult with an herbalist, naturopath, doctor, or other health professionals knowledgeable for guidance about herbs before use.
