Some of the most interesting info on Dong Quai (Also known as: Dang Gui, Tang Kuei, Female Ginseng) include its ability to balance hormone levels, detoxify the body, ease the menstrual process, boost energy levels and circulation, improve mood, reduce signs of aging, protect skin health, lower blood pressure, improve sex drive, and protect the heart.

If you’ve ever heard of “female ginseng”, then you’ve heard of Dong Quai, which has the scientific name Angelica sinensis.  This powerful herb grows primarily in Asia and has been in use for thousands of years as a sacred herbal remedy. While many traditional Chinese herbal medicines are largely discounted by western medical professionals, Dong Quai remains quite viable and continues to prove its value as more and more medicinal benefits are identified. The yellow root of the Dong Quai plant is where the most valuable chemical components are found.  This root is then dried and used to make a number of powders, tinctures, tonics, and other herbal supplements, notably for female health issues, but more recently for an impressive array of benefits. The plant actually belongs to a rather normal family, Apiaceae, which is commonly known as the carrot, parsley, and celery family, but the unique chemical composition of Dong Quai gives it far more benefits than your average green stalk.

The nickname “female ginseng” may turn off some men to using Dong Quai, but as it turns out there, are plenty of benefits for both genders. Although this magical herb was largely relegated to the East for centuries, it has begun appearing more frequently in the west as herbal remedies continue to grow in popularity. The active ingredients in Dong Quai, which include ferulic acid, various polysaccharides, and more than 70 other powerful chemical compounds result in significant effects on our system, and it’s becoming harder to deny! Now, let’s take a closer look at this mysterious and powerful plant to investigate the many health benefits of Dong Quai.

Dong Quai "Female Ginseng"

  • Balances estrogen levels. Dong Quai is the premier "gynaecological regulator." It has the ability to reduce your estrogen levels if they are too high and can increase them if they are too low.
  • Excellent blood tonic. Master herbalist, Ron Teeguarden, attributes the blood toning and nourishing effects of Dong Quai to its amazing vitamin and mineral content. Dong Quai contains vitamin B 12, folic acid, folinic acid, nicotinic acid, and biotin.
  • Dong Quai is helpful after an injury or surgery to replenish your red blood cells and increase blood volume. It's included in nearly all Chinese herbal blood-building formulas.
  • A consideration for iron deficiency and anaemia. The cobalt in Dong Quai is thought to increase the haemoglobin content of your blood. (Hemoglobin is the protein in your blood that contains iron and carries oxygen to cells and carbon dioxide from them.)
  • Boosts male fertility. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant found in Dong Quai, has been shown to improve sperm quality.
  • Essential during and after menstruation. Dong Quai is an antispasmodic that eases cramps and other symptoms of PMS. It dilates your blood vessels to increase flow during your monthly cleansing and helps replenish blood after your period has ended.
  • Women who stop taking birth control pills may also find Dong Quai useful to encourage a regular cycle.
  • Helps you feel happier! Dong Quai is effective at reducing anxiety and could be useful to help you combat stress and reduce the severity of mood swings. It has a calming effect on your nervous system and promotes relaxation.
  • Enhances female fertility. Only a generation ago, infertility was rare, but now it takes the average woman up to18 months to conceive. Women often seek the help of expensive fertility specialists and undergo painful procedures when an antifungal diet and a herb like Dong Quai may be all that is needed.
  • Keeps you beautiful and youthful. Chinese women are known for their age-defying youthfulness, and Dong Quai may be a big part of it. Dong Quai preserves your natural beauty by encouraging health from the inside out.
  • Beneficial in supporting healthy skin over Vitiligo.

Ron Teeguarden notes that Dong Quai increases circulation, improves your complexion, and aids detoxification to clear blemishes. May help against alopecia, eczema and rosacea. Dong Quai's effect on the blood and circulation also prompts healing for common skin conditions like eczema and rosacea, neurodermatitis, pruritis, hives and vitiligo.
