TCM Chinese Herbs – Health and Benefit of Angelica Sinensis

Healthy Lifestyle, TCM Chinese Herbs topic today is on Angelica sinensis (當歸),

Angelica sinensis (當歸), also known as Chinese Angelica, has been used for thousands of years as a spice, tonic, and medicine. It remains one of the most popular plants in Chinese medicine. In most cases, angelica sinensis is used primarily for health conditions in women. That’s why it is also called “female ginseng”.

 

Angelica sinensis (Dang Gui) root is a kind of phytoestrogen-rich herb. Phytoestrogens are a group of chemicals found in plants that can act like the hormone estrogen, which is the most important ingredient for it to balance female hormone levels. In addition, researches also confirmed that it works in two-ways regulation, namely restraining the secretion of estrogen when estrogen is too much and stimulating the secretion of estrogen when estrogen is not enough.
It is said that these herbs also contain many valuable phytochemicals, which can help enhance the production of white blood cells and thus help curb inflammation. Due to its property of anti-inflammation, it is being also used to cure many kinds of inflammatory diseases.
Dong quai also contains ferulic acid, a pain reliever and muscle relaxer. Indeed, the herb is often used to treat painful menstrual cramps or other cases of uterine spasms. This Chinese herb may also help overcome fatigue and restore energy.
Besides of folic acid, folinic acid and nicotinic acid, small amounts of vitamins A and E, biotin, carotene and pantothinic acid are also found. Moreover, substantial amounts of Vitamin B12

  3. I am here to thank a great man who cured my husband of AZOOSPERMIA (ZERO SPERM COUNT) his name is Dr. Uduehi. My husband suffered zero sperm count for a long time. He felt useless or depressed most time especially when we wants to make out because he knows there would be no results. So, one day I confide in a friend about our predicament and she gave me Dr. Uduehi’s contacts, I contacted him and he administered his medication and after my spouse took the medicine he started experiencing sperm although it was little at the beginning but it kept increasing until he got me pregnant after 13 years of marriage. You too can be cured also he treats any kind of male infertility. Reach him through: uduehiherbalcare@gmail.com phone/WhatsaPP: +2347084878384
