Angelica Root (or Female Ginseng) is an age-old, natural way to support a woman's health and reproductive system. It is thought to relieve the discomforts of menopause (hot flashes and vaginal dryness) and premenstrual syndrome, and it has been used to regulate monthly cycles in women after giving birth or when ending the use of birth control pills.
Angelica Root is famous as an overall tonic for the reproductive system that assists the body in using and balancing hormones and has been used to relieve the discomforts of PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), menorrhagia (abnormal menstruation), and may help in cases of infertility. After the delivery of a child, women have considered Dong Quai a post-partum tonic that helps to regulate the menses and build the blood. It is also thought to re-establish the menstrual cycle after withdrawal from birth control pills. As a uterine tonic, it promotes an increase in contractions followed by a prolonged relaxation.
