Dang-gui roots contain phytoestrogens, which are chemicals found in plants that mimic the effects of estrogen in the body. Dang-gui is said to help balance women’s hormone levels, both restraining and supplementing the body’s production of estrogen as needed. It is used to treat menstrual and menopausal symptoms, including migraine, cramps, mood fluctuations, and hot flashes.

Not only does dang-gui relax the smooth muscles of the uterus, but it also keeps the smooth muscles in the arteries dilated, helping to maintain regular blood flow and heartbeat. Dang-gui has been used to treat angina, high blood pressure, and irregular heartbeat. Some studies have shown that the antispasmodic, dilating effects of dang gui may help treat chronic pulmonary hypertension in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), especially when taken in combination with the drug nifedipine.
Dang-gui contains phytochemicals that help boost white blood cell production and fight inflammation, and may improve liver and kidney function.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Menopause?
A. Menopause means cessation of menstrual cycle. Medically, if a woman stopped having period for 12 consecutive months, she is said to be in menopause. Typically this happens when woman turns 50 all women go through menopause, mostly when they turn around 50 and some go through early if they have surgery such as hysterectomy or breast cancer. And 8 out of 10 women show one or more of the symptoms. 3 of the 10 women show symptoms that are so severe that it interferes with their daily life.
Q. What are the symptoms?
A. As the estrogen hormone production decreases dramatically, as much as 95%, there is a number of physiological and psychological changes. Physiological changes include night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, dryness of skin, fatigue(or lack of energy), hair loss, weakening of bone and cardiovascular diseases. Psychological changes include mood swings, irritability, insomnia, and depression.
Q. What treatments are available?
A. The ways to treat these various menopausal symptoms are basically two-fold: Doctor-prescribed medicine known as Hormone Replacement Therapy. It is literally hormone extracted from animal, and had been widely prescribed until National Institute of Health-sponsored clinical study, involving 16,000 women, in 2002, called WHI (Women’s Health Initiative), was revealed. In its announcement of the result in 2002, the results showed very serious side effects. Chance of strokes increased by 44%, blood clotting by 100%, Cardio Vascular Diseases by 29% and Breast Cancer by 26%. NIH stopped the clinical study and subsequently issued what’s called Black Box Warning, instructing physicians to warn its patients of the dangers.
The other alternative, the natural remedy, is the use of phytoestrogens, or plant extracts. The most popular choice was extracts from Black Cohosh, which was originally invented in Germany. However, several clinical studies in recent years showed that it is not any more effective than the placebo group. Additionally, it was found that the black cohosh caused serious liver damage. After this danger to liver was announced, the sales have plummeted.
Another popular phytoestrogen is Isoflavone. However, the efficacy was weak, and also, in 2008, NIH released a report showing that the active compound in Isoflavone, Genistin, is carcinogenic, or cancer-causing.
Q. What is WOMEN’S BALANCE?
A. With the market void of new effective and safe alternative, a Korean biotech company invented and introduced a mixture of 3 100% all natural herbal extracts in early 2000. The blend of three all natural herbal extracts, which have been used in Korea and China for at least 400 years as safe herb medicine, was put to the most rigorous tests.
Q. Is it safe?
A. The 5 week and 13 week toxicity tests were performed and it was found to be non-toxic. And then, it was tested for liver-toxicity, and it was actually found to be liver-protective, and this was reported to World Health Organization. And then it was tested for carcinogenicity, and it was actually found to be cancer-inhibitory, or anti-cancer.
Q. Was there a human clinical study?
A. Yes. There was two formal and two open label studies, totaling 4. The first 12 month long, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study was conducted at Korea’s top hospital for OB/GYN, Samsung Jeil hospital. The results were outstanding. Active group showed 5 times greater in the relief of symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, night sweats and energy boost. Also, it showed decreased triglyceride level by 22%, and increased bone density.
Recognized by the doctors, it has naturally became the number one choice of supplement for women with menopause in Korea, and now the same product has become available in the USA.
