Dong Quai Powder | Organic (Angelica Sinensis)
Angelica Sinensis, also known as dong quai or female ginseng, is a type of herb belonging to the Apiaceae family of plants. This group of plants also includes parsley, carrots, celery, and coriander.
This plant has been a prime ingredient in Chinese medicine for centuries and was historically used for everything from relieving depression to treating constipation. Today, it is most often used to help balance hormones and reduce symptoms of menopause.
Thanks to its potent medicinal properties, this herb boasts a long list of health benefits, from improving bone health to reducing the symptoms of menopause. Studies show that it could also decrease depression, lower blood sugar levels, ease inflammation, boost the health of your heart, and keep your bones strong.
Dong Quai is also used for menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and menopausal symptoms. It is also used orally as a blood purifier; to manage infertility, joint pain, ulcers, 'tired blood' (anemia), and constipation.
🡆 Dong Quai can cause the skin to become extra-sensitive to the sun.
🡆Avoid it when you have diabetes, during pregnancy and when taking medicines to dilute blood.
🡆Taking dong quai in large quantities over a long period of time is POSSIBLY DANGEROUS. Consult a doctor before consumption!
Dosages generally range from 2 to 4 grams per day, typically divided into two or three doses. However, it is always best to start with a smaller dose and work your way up to assess your tolerance.
Mix it into drinks, hot beverages such as lattes and hot chocolate, smoothies, hot or cold cereals, granola, overnight oats, bars, chia seed pudding, or even baked products (although cooking it at high temperatures may destroy some of the phytonutrients).
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry place- to preserve the flavor, texture, and properties.
