Our alcohol-free Greenbush Dong-Quai extract is great for women looking to naturally support their overall sexual and menstrual health and are dissatisfied with the current synthetic, alcohol-based, or expensive formulated extracts and supplements available to them.
Unlike other supplements and multi-herb formulas available in the market, our Greenbush Dong-Quai extract is a natural, single-herb supplement without fillers or additives that is carefully extracted to deliver as much of the active herb, Angelica sinensis, as possible.
No fillers or additives. No "kitchen sink" multi-herb formulas with as many as 20 ingredients. No nonsense.
Just pure and potent herbs delivered in a concentrated, alcohol-free extract since 1997.
Dong-quai is sometimes referred to as “female ginseng” due to its use in Chinese herbal medicine for fatigue, regulating the menstrual cycle pain management, vitality and hormone balance. It is considered a blood tonic and contains vitamin B 12, folic acid, folinic acid, nicotinic acid, biotin and cobalt which can improve hemoglobin content.
Inhibited sexual desire in women, increasing the effects of ovarian and testicular hormones, liver problems, menopause, menstrual cramps, menstrual disorders, PMS, nerve inflammation, muscle pain, regulating menstruation and vaginal dryness. From "Prescription for Natural Healing" Balch and Balch, "The Green Pharmacy" Dr. James Duke, "Natural Health Bible" Bratman and Kroll.
Recommendations and Research: Dong quai, sometimes spelled Dang-qaui is one of the major herbs in traditional Chinese herbal medicine and is respected on the same level as Ginseng as a restorative tonic for women. It is sometimes known as Chinese angelica and is used primarily as a female tonic, though some studies have shown that it increases sexual response in females and males as well. In Chinese herbal medicine Dong quai is generally used in combination with other herbs and is included in nearly all women’s formulas and blood builders.
Dong quai is one of the top recommendations by Dr. James Duke for menstrual cramps.
Dong quai has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries and has shown no signs of toxicity in any studies. It may affect blood clotting and should not be used with other blood thinners. Pregnant women should not use dong-quai. Safety in breastfeeding mothers has not been established.
