Common Uses for Dong Quai Root:

  • Strengthens bones
  • Decrease inflammation

Dong Quai, also known as Angelica sinensis or female ginseng, is a type of herb that grows best in cooler temperatures and is typically found in the mountainous regions of China, Japan, and Korea.

This herb contains coumarin, which is a naturally occurring compound present in many plants. It also contains other beneficial plant compounds like ferulic acid and phytosterols. Dong Quai is used to strengthen bones and decrease inflammation. It may also help to reduce blood sugar, promote heart health, and treat depression. Dong Quai is also helpful in alleviating symptoms of menopause.

Since Dong Quai contains coumarin, one of the main ingredients in blood-thinning medications like Warfarin, taking Dong Quai may increase your risk of bleeding. Side effects of Dong Quai are rare, but may include bloating, loss of appetite, or weakness.

Female Ginseng

The herb earned its moniker of ‘female ginseng’ due to its many benefits that may promote female health. It has long been used for the treatment of gynecological and hormonal issues in women (x). Additionally, it has been used for therapeutic reasons for millennia and is popular in traditional Chinese medicine.

Benefits of Dong Quai Extract

Dong Quai has a long history of use among a number of different cultures. Some of its benefits include: Manages Menstrual Problems Research shows Dong Quai has an estrogenic effect and may help with menstrual problems like cramping, irregular or delayed flows and premenstrual syndrome. It also promotes hormonal balance and improves blood circulation. Eases Mood Swings and Cramping The antispasmodic properties of Dong Quai help alleviate mood swings, cramping and general discomfort that stems from menstruation and menopause. The European Medicine Agency carried out an extensive analysis of Dong Quai, which shows that its antispasmodic properties help suppress cramping and muscle spasms in the pelvic region. In fact, it was effective in regulating menstruation in 39 percent of patients. It also helps to replenish blood lost during menstruation. Alleviates Menopausal Symptoms From the age of 40, women experience a natural decrease in hormone production (menopause). Side effects of this phenomenon include mood swings, hair loss, night sweats and, of course, hot flushes. Some women experiencing these symptoms turn to hormone replacement therapy for relief. This medication provides similar synthetic hormones as those found in birth control pills, which can have their own set of side effects. However, an Italian study suggests that one can relieve symptoms of menopause with the use of dong quai to regulate hormone levels. Dong Quai for Hot Flushes Evidence suggests dong quai might be helpful for hot flushes in post-menopausal women when used in combination with other herbs. According to findings from a study published in the Clinical and Experimental Obstetrics and Gynecology, a 12-week study on 55 post-menopausal women experiencing hot flushes showed that the group who took tablets containing dong quai and chamomile showed improvements in their hot flush symptoms . Another three-month study on pre- and post-menopausal women published in Gynecological Endocrinology showed that a combination of dong quai and several other herbs like milk thistle, red clover and black cohosh helped to soothe hot flushes and reduce sleep disturbances. Aphrodisiac Several studies show that dong quai not only helps boost libido levels, but also increases fertility and chances of conception. Promotes Bone Health The estrogen hormone helps regulate bone formation and protects bone cells from damage. A 2014 study revealed that dong quai has anti-osteoporotic effects. Osteoporosis may affect both menopausal and post-menopausal women due a reduction in estrogen levels that occur during that period . Moreover, a preliminary study published in PLoS One shows that compounds extracted from dong quai show potential for treating osteoarthritis. Strengthens Bone Bone density and regeneration gradually decline as we age, resulting in a reduction of bone formation and overall bone loss. Dong quai helps prevent osteoporosis by increasing bone density and has been used in combination with Chinese herbal prescriptions to reduce bone loss that causes osteoporosis . It contributes towards cartilage health and promotes the regeneration of cartilage and bone tissues. Anti-Inflammatory Effects Inflammation is the body’s immune response for fighting off foreign organisms; however, chronic inflammation is an underlying factor in diseases such as cancer, rheumatism and heart disease. Studies suggest that dong quai has anti-inflammatory compounds that reduce inflammation and the risk of chronic disease. Triggers the Production of Antioxidant The main components of dong quai that have anti-inflammatory effects are complex sugar, ferulic acid and ligustilide. The plant acts like NSAID pain killers by blocking key enzymes that trigger inflammation in the body . Free radicals break down and damage the building blocks of cells causing tissue damage. Dong quai, however, triggers the production of antioxidant enzymes and compounds that help prevent this damage. Fights Depression Studies show that dong quai can improve mood, lessen anxiety and alleviate the symptoms of depression and sleep disorders . Lowers Blood Sugar Levels Dong quai helps reduce and regulate blood sugar levels. Reduces Insulin Resistance Insulin assists in transporting sugar from the bloodstream to the cells. High insulin levels over a long period can result in insulin resistance, which leads to a build-up in sugar level. Dong Quai for Heart Health Dong quai can promote heart health in two ways. Active compounds in the plant help increase the cardio rest period that occurs between heartbeats, reduces blood pressure and increases blood flow. It reduces plaque formation in the blood vessels walls, potentially preventing hypertension, atherosclerosis and heart attacks. The herb also reduces triglycerides and cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease and maintaining better heart health.
