Dong Quai Products

Following the thousands of years of Chinese medical knowledge here we have the 'female ginseng' or Dong Quai. Indigo Herbs carries Dong Quai Powder and Dong Quai Tincture as the representatives of this effective botanical. Come and join Indigo Herbs in enjoying this amazing ingredient which is said to be most beneficial toward women.

Although Dong Quai is native to China this plant also has reference in the traditions of Ayurvedic, Native American and Kampo medicine. The meaning of Dong Quai translates as 'proper order' and illustrates the restorative and balancing nature this ingredient is thought to have within Chinese Medical tradition. The root of this herb is thought to do this by its mild warming nature, being an antioxidant and harmonizing the vital energy of the body. Thought to work very well in conjunction with other ingredients Dong Quai is considered to be perfect for those with a Yin profile.

A relative to Celery and a member of the Apiaceae family, Dong Quai is a hardy plant that grows well at high altitude and loves cold, damp and shady environments. The stems grow with a slight purple tint to about a meter in height while fruiting occurs in August and produces clusters of umbrella shaped white flowers and winged shaped seed. Dong Quai takes 3 years to mature before the root is viable to be used in medicine.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

This herbal powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Dong Quai Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Dong Quai Tincture:
Traditionally Taken: 1 - 3ml two or three times a day,.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner. 

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.
  • Packaged in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle with dropper.

Manufacture Process

Before peak maturity the Angelica sinensis plants are cut and identified by plant experts before the root is cut away from the rest of the plant. Only the best prime examples of the roots are used in our Dong Quai Tincture. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are disregarded through a process of elimination. The root material then undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the blend. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added. It is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.

Dong Quai should not be administered to children or patients with diarrhoea or haemorrhagic diseases, nor should it be taken by pregnant or lactating women, unless under directions of a qualified practitioner.
