What is Dong Quai?
Dong Quai is a 100% safe, natural and powerful Chinese tonic herb and has been used for thousands of years primarily for treating health conditions in women. It is used as a nourishing blood tonic to relieve the symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), without the unnecessary risk and possibly devastating side effects of hormone replacement therapy.
Dong Quai, also known as Angelica Sinesis, has an adaptogenic effect on the female hormonal system, helping tonormalize hormones that are imbalanced. It has been used for centuries by Asian healers to correct imbalances in female hormones and to improve emotional health during menopause and perimenopause. More recently, clinical research has confirmed the effectiveness of this tonic herb.
Dong Quai is a great complementary remedy to herbal MellowPause, which further supports hormonal balance as well as healthy sleep patterns, while reducing common hot flashes during menopause. Taken together, these remedies can safely and effectively relieve symptoms experienced during PMS, menopause and perimenopause to ensure optimal comfort and relief.
The formula remains true to the full spectrum method of herbal extraction, ensuring the bioavailability and balance of all the active ingredients contained in the remedy. This manufacturing method also significantly reduces the likelihood of side effects and ensures that all active ingredients are in perfect balance.
All Native Remedies products are manufactured in FDA-registered, GMP-certified facilities under the supervision of an expert team of herbalists, naturopaths, homeopaths and responsible pharmacists.
Dong Quai can make all the difference without the risk of side effects. In combination with a healthy lifestyle and diet, Dong Quai helps relieve symptoms of PMS and menopause for better emotional health!
All about balance - hormonal & emotional
Hormones play a vital role in every woman's health and well-being. Every month, the female hormones estrogen and progesterone are produced. The ratio between these two hormones, as well as the quantities produced by the body, can vary throughout the menstrual cycle… as well as during perimenopause and menopause.
This is perfectly normal, and will result in various changes in mood, skin and hair growth, as well as in menstruation itself. One of the major hormones affecting the brain, the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone, alters the functioning of the hypothalamus-- which in turn affects the pituitary gland, which then affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.
Women of all ages may experience hormonal changes, often with symptoms becoming evident in their late twenties through their forties. Many women also experience symptoms of hormonal change during their premenstrual cycle causing various symptoms ranging from mild to strong.
The natural way
Conventional medicine often uses the HRT (hormone replacement therapy) in the treatment of menopause symptoms. There are risks and long-term side effects associated with HRT, while studies on soy-based products show conflicting and unsubstantiated results.
Naturopathic approaches take a more holistic look at the individual taking into account that hormonal balance during a woman's life may be influenced by a variety of factors such as nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, emotions, age and ovulation. The natural approach is less harmful and more thorough, instead of keeping the individual on hormone replacement drugs for many years.
Natural remedies also have a long history of use in promoting female reproductive health and hormonal balance - assisting women throughout the ages to stay healthy before and during the menstrual cycle, as well as during perimenopause and menopause without unwanted side effects.

How long until I see results?
As an excellent tonic and adaptogenic herb for the female reproductive system, Dong Quai gets to work quickly to support hormonal balance. For some women the effects are felt within a few days, while for others it may take a little longer - with continuing improvement with every passing month. Research has shown that Dong Quai is extremely effective in providing long term relief from symptoms of menopause when taken regularly for between 8 and 12 weeks, and its effects are most noticeable at the end of the treatment period.

What are others saying?
Dong Quai has been used to help control, calm and soothe thousands of PMS & Menopause sufferers. Here is what some of them have to say:
“I am 28 years old and after discontinuing my birth control pills my period had become irregular with lots of acne on my face. After a while in June I came to know about Dong Quai and started off with it. My PMS seems to be in control since then and my acne seems to have disappeared totally... This month (July) I have had my period as well as no PMS or acne even with the onset of my menstrual cycle.”
“I have been taking your recommended herbs, Dong Quai, MellowPause and Femalite for a couple of months and just would like to know do you take this forever now that I have reached Menopause or should I only be taking this for a few months. I do have to tell you that all of my symptoms have totally disappeared. I probably started your course about last week of May. My sister is actually a Homeopath practicing in London and I will be visiting her in September and I can't wait to share my news with her! Thanking you.”
