How Can This Ayurvedic Product Make You Feel Great?
Nourishes Blood, and Promotes FlowDong Quai promotes blood flow to the pelvic basin, used to promote menstruation and relieve menstrual blood congestion. Its blood moving nature is also helpful in reducing swelling, and resolving abscess. Dong Quai has been shown to increase production of red blood cells.
As a pungent aromatic, Dong Quai is a natural stimulant-relaxant. Its pungency stimulates the heart while aromatic nature opens up vessels allowing for smooth flow of blood. The vasodilating effect calms hypertension and migraine headaches. Like scallions, the heat of Dong Quai calms the heart muscle in tachycardia.
Where blue cohosh is drying and stimulating, dong quai is moistening and relaxing. Both build estrogen
Relaxes Nervous System, Calms SpasmsAromatic herbs are generally analgesic and relax smooth muscle tissue - helpful in asthma, colic, and painful periods due to spasm. Like lavendar, and chamomile, this relaxant effect eases nervous tension, anxiety, and insomnia.
Relaxes Immune SystemDong Quai calms the immune system, an unusual property (prabhav) for herbs that are stimulating. It has been shown to reduce hypersensitivity (Holmes). While cilantro is a cooling immune relaxer, Donq Quai is hot.
Its sweetness moistens the intestines, while the stimulating heat flushes constipation.
