Angelicae Sinesis

Also known as Dong Quai, this antioxidant rich, adaptogenic root has long been cultivated for its health effects, especially in women. This root contains compounds which have been shown to aid in gynecological regulation, which in turn can aid in the conditioning of women's skin.


The polysaccharides in Angelicae Sinesis have also been shown to cause hematopoietic effects, meaning it aids in the formation of new red blood cells and thus could aid in the bioavailability of other compounds in the bloodstream. In addition, this root has also been shown to boost the immune system, meaning a decreased likelihood of acne too!
