Easing Painful Periods & PMS
A classic Chinese plant remedy, Dong Quai is the featured ingredient in this formula, which consists of seven masterfully combined herbs. Dong Quai has been praised for its positive estrogenic healing role. As such, it provides the perfect keynote to a herbal combination of this nature, which was created to treat problems associated with the female reproductive tract, especially menstrual disorders.
Dong Quai Combo is the ideal answer to painful periods (dysmenorrhea) and premenstrual tension. In addition, it acts as a wonderfully effective general tonic for gynaecological issues of the reproductive tract.
