the female ginseng
Dang Gui is not estrogenic, but it has similar effects and has been proven to bind to estrogen receptors in women. The herb can offer mild additions to the overall quantities of estrogen in the body, making it effective as natural hormone replacement. The root can also be used for balancing out low levels of natural estrogen. It is used for hormonal problems, female infertility and menopausal problems – hence the name ‘female ginseng’.
Angelica Sinensis Root is beneficial for women as it improves secretions of female hormones to make them more balanced. It can, therefore, help improve fertility and regulate the female reproductive cycle. Also, a group of compounds present in Dang Gui can dilate blood vessels and control muscle spasms.
