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.

I live in Northwest Arkansas - I specifically call out the region because it’s a distinct part of the state, unlike the rest. I love it here - it gives me the progressive nature of a larger city with the comfort of community. There’s still opportunity for growth and change, so I’m happy to be a resident who can play a part in its future.
