Dong Quai is called female ginseng because of its effects on the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menopause. Cramping, mood swings, and general discomfort of menstruation are traditional indications relieved by the antispasmodic properties of Dong Quai, while also helping to reload the blood after your menstruation period so that you don’t feel weak or tired for days afterward. For women who have chosen to get off birth control pills, Dong Quai can aid the body to naturally regulate and ease the cycle.
