Dong Quai extract 1% | Angelica sinensis

Properties: Dong Quai or “female ginseng” are two common names of Angelica sinensis. They reflect the amount of phytoestrogens – floral analogues of female sex hormones present in this plant. These compounds are the reason why women in the menopausal period have supplemented angelica for centuries. Research evidence has demonstrated that A.sinensis can, for example, limit the symptoms related to menopause such as heat waves and cold sweats. Another study has proven that it helps to maintain the proper density of bones, thus is an element of osteoporosis prophylaxis. Ladies who struggle with PMS-related issues (as well as gentlemen) will also appreciate the regulatory effect of angelica on the endocrine system. When speaking of menstruation, it is worth noting that this plant contains multiple active compounds with a relaxant effect, helpful against period cramps.

What is more, angelica sinensis benefits the immune system too. It stimulates the proliferation of its basic cells. Simultaneously, it prevents the spread of inflammation. For these reasons Dong Quai is still used by Asian doctors as a support to conventional therapies.

To complete this story, we must mention that angelica has the ability to prevent bloating, is full of natural antioxidants, and stimulates the secretion of acetylcholine in the central nervous system. Keep in mind that acetylcholine is responsible for basic cognitive functions as well as creativity. Thus, the supplementation of „female ginseng” may certainly benefit women as well as men.

Occurrence: Angelica sinensis is a biennial byline from the Apiaceae family. It reaches up to two meters in height and has gigantic, dark-green leaves. It forms an almost spherical shaped, flowery umbels at the top of the stem. This plant is characterized by a very strong, specific smell that resembles musk. It occurs naturally in high mountain areas, in meadows and in humid mountain gorges in China, Korea and Japan. In traditional medicine of the Far East, angelica has been used first and foremost as a remedy for multiple female ailments such as painful menstruation, menopausal symptoms, and after pregnancy. It is also considered to be an effective means of strengthening the heart, lungs and liver, supporting the functioning of the intestines and nourishing the blood.

Biochemistry: Angelica sinensis owes its properties mainly to phytoestrogens. These plant-based organic compounds are analogous to human female hormones – estrogens. Some of the more attractive ingredients also include coumarins (including angelicin, osthenol, archangelicin). Apart from them, the plant also contains: organic acids, polysaccharides, phytosterols, essential oils, micro- and macroelements (including calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium) and vitamins (mainly C and E).

Fun fact: Angelica sinensis has been known to Scandinavians and Laplanders for ages. These people have appreciated it very much, because it is one of the few edible plants available in the harsh climate of the North. They used to make a special kind of cheese from its flowers and reindeer milk. Angelica’s roots, rhizomes, and sprouts have also been consumed.

How does Dong Quai extract 1% | Angelica sinensis work?

Improves general fitness: Research evidence has confirmed that angelica sinensis prevents the loss of bone mass and stimulates their regeneration when the estrogen level is low. Thus, it can be used as a prophylaxis of osteoporosis. What is more, this plant contains strong antioxidants, which protect fragile cellular structures from free radicals. Additionally, Dong Quai regulates the functioning of the liver and the digestive tract. Last but not least, it stimulates the secretion of digestive fluids and counteracts bloating.

Supports the immune system: Polysaccharides contained in Angelica sinensis support the functioning of the immune system. It has been proven that they stimulate the proliferation and activity of macrophages and lymphocytes – cells that participate in the fight with pathogens. Simultaneously, the substrates of essential oil present in his plant lower the level of histamine. In this way, they prevent the spread of inflammation within the organism. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that angelica supports the immune cells in detection and neutralization of malfunctioning cells.

Regulates endocrine system: Traditional Chinese medicine has used “female ginseng” for millennia to soothe ailments such as menstrual irregularities of menopause symptoms. Modern research has demonstrated that angelica sinensis contains plenty of phytoestrogens. They interact with appropriate receptors and thereby reduce the most typical issues related to menopause – heat waves and cold sweats. Other studies have proven that the supplementation of angelica brings relief also to women who suffer from the tension connected with premenstrual symptoms (PMS). Importantly, it has the ability to relax the smooth muscles and thus counteract painful cramps.

Protects the nervous system: It has been proven that A. sinensis benefits the central nervous system. Biologically active compounds contained in this plant dilate the blood vessels of the brain and therefore improve the blood flow. In this way, neurons receive an increased amount of oxygen and nutrients, which optimizes their functioning. What is more, Dong Quai reduces the inflammation within the cells of the central nervous system and thus inhibits the activity of microglia. As a result, it helps to prevent the development of neurodegenerative diseases, which originate from damaged brain structures. Noteworthy, angelica sinensis supports cognitive functions such as memory and concentration. This effect comes from the upregulated activity of acetylcholine – the neurotransmitter responsible for signal transmission between neurons.
