Dong-Quai and Black and Blue Cohosh
Are those 2 (or 3) good ideas to regulate cycles and improve overall fertility when TTC ?
Here is what I've found about Dong -Quai (Angelica Sinensis) on www.dong-quai.org
Dong quai herb researches
Modern scientific researches have found that dong quai root is a kind of phytoestrogen-rich herb. Phytoestrogens are a group of chemicals found in plants that can act like the hormone estrogen, which is the most important ingredient for it to balance female hormone levels. In addition, researches also confirmed that it works in two-ways regulation, namely restraining the secretion of estrogen when estrogen is too much and stimulating the secretion of estrogen when estrogen is not enough.
Besides of folic acid, folinic acid and nicotinic acid, small amounts of vitamins A and E, biotin, carotene and pantothinic acid are also found. Moreover, substantial amounts of Vitamin B12 (0.25 to 0.4 mcg per 100 grams of dried root) is found at the same time, which is the solid evidence that why ancient herbalists liked using it for blood disorders.
There is much more about it of course, but it sounds OK for blue sway?
Other things are Black and Blue Cohosh, and in her book, T said Black C can be toxic when taken with alfa-alfa, and I've found online that it is a good thing, but should be taken with caution and 1st consult your doctor if you are taking any other meds.
The reason I'm asking is I know Vitex can regulate cycle, but it is girl friendly, so what is there for blue swayers who don't have regular cycles?
