Tang Kuei 18 | Seven Forests
An Herbal Supplement from Seven Forests
It is commonly said among practitioners of TCM, that men are always QI Deficient, and women are always Blood Deficient. Blood deficiency in women is thought to be associated with monthly menstrual blood loss. In actuality, modern laboratory analysis confirms that women do have lower levels of iron and fewer red blood cells than do men.
Tang-Kuei, aka DANG GUI, the root of the plant Angelica Sinensis, is the principal herb used in TCM to supplement the blood (Blood Tonic) in both women and men. The herb is most often associated with women, possibly because the condition of Blood Deficiency is so much more common in women than in men. Although Blood Deficiency syndrome is somewhat like anemia, it can't be determined by blood tests, but rather by a diagnosable pattern of signs and symptoms. Typically, Blood Tonics are taken over a period of several months or longer.
To re-inforce the blood building aspects of DANG GUI (Tang Kuei), it is often combined with BAI SHAO (white peony root), SHU DI HUANG (steamed foxglove root), and CHUAN QIONG (liguisticum). This combination is called SI WU TANG (four substances), and is present in Tang-Kwei 18.
The entire formula, consisting of 18 herbs (hence the name Tang-Kuei 18) does more than Tonify The Blood. Other herbs Vitalize the Blood, Tonify the YIN, build and Move the QI, and astringe Essence.
