Dong Quai has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb and is prized for its ability to benefit both the female and male reproductive system. Dong Quai is considered to be the “premier hormone regulator” and has the ability to reduce estrogen levels if they are too high or increase estrogen levels if they are too low. It is often used as a natural infertility treatment and can also help improve sperm quality in men due to its ferulic acid.
Dong Quai is high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B-12, folate, biotin, cobalt, and iron. It is highly beneficial for hypothyroidism, migraines, irritable moods, depression, low energy, heart palpitations, insomnia, hypertension, kidney disease, angina, arthritis, nerve pain, shingles, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis. Dong Quai is also highly beneficial for the cardiovascular system by helping to reduce blood pressure levels and blood sugar levels.
It is also good for reducing anxiety, alleviating stress damage, calming the nervous system, and promoting overall relaxation in the body. Some people claim that dong quai can help you feel happier and less overwhelmed with the stresses of life. Dong Quai contains anti-spasmodic properties that can ease cramps and other symptoms of PMS.
It is also known to help prevent hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms as well. Dong Quai is an excellent blood builder and can help to replenish and rebuild the blood after injury or surgery. It contains anti-aging properties and can help increase circulation, improve one’s complexion, and aid in detoxification.
Topically, dong quai is helpful for skin problems such as rosacea, hives, eczema, neurodermititis, and vitiligo. Caution should be used with those who have breast, uterine, or prostate cancer or women who are pregnant. Dong Quai can be found online or at your local health food store in capsule, tincture, extract, tea, and cream form.
