Dong quai is a cylindrical perennial plant with many roots and rootlets. Native to China and cultivated in Vietnam, dong quai is strongly aromatic with a pungent and bitter taste, and is considered to have warm, bitter, sweet and acrid properties.[2,3]
The first report of the therapeutic application of dong quai was in a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) monograph from the Qin Han dynasty in 300 A.D, with many records of its use across subsequent Chinese dynasties.
Referred to as the ‘female ginseng’, the herb has a long history of use in TCM particularly for women, as well as for imbalances in heart, liver and spleen channels and to invigorate, enrich, harmonise and tonify the blood.[5,6] Traditional uses for dong quai are related to blood in heart and liver blood deficiencies.[1,2,4,6]
