What is it?:

This product is a liquid tincture of Salvia root (also known as Red sage root in Western Herbalism and Dan shen in Chinese medicine). Dan shen has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine to activate (invigorate) blood circulation and dispel blood stasis.

In modern terms, it lowers blood viscosity and increases perfusion of blood to the vital organs of the body (including the brain, heart, and kidneys) and is used in Chinese hospitals today to promote blood flow and treat vascular disease; it is also combined with Western forms of therapy to address acute myocardial infarction (heart attacks).  This tincture works well as a stand alone supplement, or you can add it to an existing regimen of supplements.

Because this herb invigorates blood circulation, it is not for use during pregnancy without the supervision of a trained TCM practitioner. Additionally, it should be used with caution in situations where there is bleeding (e.g. menstruation, nosebleeds, blood in the urine, blood in the sputum etc…).

 

What is it good for:

  • gynecological disorders characterized by blood stagnation (e.g. amenorrhea, irregular menstruation, and postpartum abdominal pain
  • chest, epigastric, and abdominal pain characterized by stifling sensations and tightness or constriction that has at its root reduced blood flow to the heart (e.g. congestive heart failure);
  • palpable masses in the abdomen as well as enlargement of the liver and spleen (due to blood stasis creating accumulations)
  • traumatic injuries with bruising and swelling

Traditional Chinese medicine benefits:

  • clears damp-heat from the Liver and gallbladder
  • clears damp-heat and promotes urination
  • dissolves stones
  • nourishes the Liver

What else you might like to know:

It is important to understand that Chinese herbs work by restoring balance to the body. This means that you usually have to take an herb or a formula for a longer period of time than you would with pharmaceuticals in order to get results-- usually at least a month, and often times longer than that... it all depends on the individual and the nature of the ailment being addressed.
