Who can take Dang Gui Shao Yao San

A woman who has irregular menses due to a lack of blood is suitable for this formula.

As you know, blood carries nutrients and oxygen and has to circulate them throughout the body.

In traditional Chinese medicine, menstruation occurs in about 28 days by collecting blood from the entire body by using the power of “Qi.”

If the flow of Qi is stagnant, menstruation will not occur naturally because Qi energy carries the blood.

That is why women with a tiny amount of blood do not have enough nutrients and heat to reach monthly routines, causing delayed menstruation.

Other symptoms:

  • Irregular Menstruation

  • Habitual Miscarriage
  • PMS
  • Lower Back pain
  • Abdominal discomfort, etc
