“Keep your blood clean, your body lean, and your mind sharp” – Henry Rollins
The first benefit of Angelica (Dang Gui) is that it’s an excellent blood cleanser. It’s so safe and easy to use and will help transport toxins through the blood and out of the body as quickly and easily as possible with minimum effort. It is one of the ingredients in Lion Heart Herbs Cleanse formula.
Dang gui is a powerful tonic for relieving menstrual issues. It can help with the full spectrum of problems from when you’re not menstruating at all to when you’re menstruating too heavily or irregularly. Dang gui is a double directional tonic herb which means whatever’s going on, it helps to restore balance to the cycle. An ideal combination with other herbs is when dang gui is blended with white peony and a small amount of ligusticum, as is the case in the Cleanse formula.
As one of the top herbs for tonifying and building blood, dang gui has been widely used for a long time to treat anaemia as it can increase the red blood cell count. Dang gui can be used after an illness, injury or surgery to rebuild red blood cells and to increase blood volume. Research shows it contains vitamin B12 and it contains cobalt which is a mineral that helps build B12 – plus many other nutrients that can help the body to overcome anaemia.
Dang gui is famous as beauty herb especially when used with other beauty herbs like schizandra. In particular, it benefits the complexion by improving circulation in the skin and will detoxify the skin, helping to clear blemishes.
You’ll notice I kept mentioning herbs to combine with dang gui. It is rarely used on its own. You need to use it with another herb, the choice of herb depending on what specific purpose you have in mind. Of course, you can just buy a ready made formulation like Lion Heart Herbs Cleanse blend.
