Dan-shen (Salvia Miltiorrhiza) Extract Powder

Danshen (Salvia miltiorrhiza) is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), often in combination with other herbs. It grows primarily in the hilly areas in the west and southwest provinces of China, with some also produced in the southeast part of China. Remedies containing danshen are used traditionally to treat a diversity of ailments, particularly cardiovascular disorders, such as atherosclerosis or blood clotting abnormalities. The ability of danshen to improve blood circulation has not been demonstrated in high-quality human trials. Constituents of the danshen root, particularly protocatechualdehyde and 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-lactic acid, are believed to be responsible for its vascular effects.  danshen
