Angelica sinensis, commonly known as "dong quai" or "female ginseng" is a herb indigenous to China. It is specifically recommended against menstrual problems, such as cramps, irregular or prolonged cycles, PMS and menopausal symptoms. It also helps to clean and strengthen blood (particularly before and after giving birth), to stimulate blood circulation, as well as to help ease various rheumatic arthritis pain. It assists in the maintenance of normal blood flow and oxygen transport in red blood cells. The angelica root may also be used in diuretic wines and in tea mixtures to help improve appetite, to stop excessive sweating, to ease frazzled nerves, and to help with gas problems. It is a valuable spice for those suffering from gastric and intestinal conditions.
