What is San Qi?
San Qi, also known as Notoginseng Root, is a sweet, slightly bitter, warm herb, and is categorized as a “stop bleeding” herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
San Qi from Treasure of the East is sourced from Yunnan Province, a Dao Di region where this herb has been grown and cultivated for many centuries.
What are the benefits of San Qi?
San Qi, or Panax Notoginseng, is a valued herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with origins that date back to China's Song Dynasty period (960–1279 AD).
San Qi is best known for its role in the management of traumatic injuries, and is believed to help reduce swelling, relieve pain, and accelerate wound healing. San Qi may also be used in the management of hemorrhagic (bleeding) and blood-stasis conditions.
What is the dosage and method for taking San Qi?
San Qi may be applied topically, or used as part of a balanced formula in conjunction with other herbs. Always follow your healthcare provider's instructions, as the dosage can vary based on your condition and response to treatment.
San Qi may be taken in capsule form or loose granules. Granules dissolve best in very hot water.
When can I expect to see results?
San Qi typically starts to take effect within days. However, like all treatments, its efficacy can vary from person to person.
Does San Qi have any side effects?
While San Qi is generally considered safe for most people, it can cause side effects in some individuals. Women who are pregnant, nursing, or postpartum as well as people with liver disease, should avoid or use San Qi with caution.
As with any Chinese herb, we recommend consulting with a qualified practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) about San Qi before any course of treatment is started.
