ForWoman Extracts contain four natural herbs, which enhance the function of the reproductive and urinary system in women, and help them to get rid of menstrual problems and others.
Dong Quai / Angelica
Dong Quai (Angelica sinensis) is also known as Chinese Angelica and is primarily known for its uses in treating women's problems including lack of sexual desire, the symptoms of menopause, cramps and PMS. For this reason it is also commonly known as "female ginseng". It aids in increasing the effects of hormones in both men and women and is widely used as an aphrodisiac.
Dong Quai is particularly useful in helping to end hot flashes and menstrual cramps. It is also used as a liver tonic and in treating sciatica and shingles. It is one of the most widely consumed herbs in China, used as frequently as ginseng and licorice. Dong quai has been used by the Chinese for more than two thousand years, as a strengthener of the heart, lung, spleen, liver and kidney meridians and as a tonic for the blood. It is traditionally characterized as a warm atmospheric energy that promotes blood circulation.
The root has earned a reputation as the "ultimate herb" for women. It is widely used among Chinese women as a fortifying daily tonic, much as Chinese men rely on ginseng. Women in other parts of the world have also discovered this 5,000 year old tradition that naturally provides balancing and normalizing support for women's unique rhythms, cycles and body systems.
Vitex Agnus Castus
Vitex agnus-castus is taken for menstrual cycle irregularities, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), a more severe form of PMS called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and symptoms of menopause. It is also used for treating "lumpy" (fibrocystic) breasts, female infertility, preventing miscarriage in women with low levels of a hormone called progesterone, controlling bleeding and helping the body force out the placenta after childbirth, and increasing breast milk.
It has been used to treat hemorrhoids, stomach ache and distension, liver disorders, intestinal parasites, angina pectoris and circulatory disorders as well as pulmonary bleeding and lung cancer.
It has been used to improve venous circulation and can also be used as an aid to digestion. This makes them useful in the treatment of anorexia and other eating disorders.
They are sometimes used as an expectorant, anti-spasmodic, sedative, hemostatic and to decrease gastric secretions.
Milfoil is also used in the treatment of menstrual cycle disorders.
It is also used in cases of cough, bronchitis, allergies and hepatic and biliary colic, ulcers and stomach bleeds.
Women use alchemilla for heavy or painful menstrual periods or for symptoms of menopause.
Alchemilla is used for stomach problems, mild diarrhea, diabetes, water retention, swelling (inflammation), and muscle spasms.
