San Qi (Panax notoginseng)
Panax notoginseng (San Qi, also known as Tian Qi - Heavenly Ginseng) is one of the three true ginseng species traditionally used in Chinese medicine (the others being Panax ginseng - Ginseng, and Panax quinquifolium - American Ginseng).
Unlike the other ginseng species, which are considered to tonify Qi and (in the case of American Ginseng) Yin its traditional categorisation is under Regulating the Blood and it is an excellent supplement for supporting health in this area.
'...it transforms static Blood without injuring new blood. It is truly a marvellous herb for regulating the Blood.'
