In contrast, only subjects who had received Angelica sinensis
exhibited a better survival in CKD-related mortality than nonusers (Figure 3).

promotes hematopoiesis and thrombopoiesis through the PI3K/AKT pathway," BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, vol.
(Oliv.) Diels, is a perennial herb belonging to family Apiaceae, and commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since ancient times (Zhang and Cheng, 1989).
The dose of each herb used in rats was 1.5g/kg body weight for Angelica sinensis
and Astragalus membranaceus, 1.2 g/kg body weight for Angelica dahurica and Gleditsia sinensis thorns, which was calculated according to the dose used in patients (0.25 g/kg and 0.2g/kg, resp.).
Roots of Angelica sinensis
(Oliv.) Diels (ASR) were obtained from Minxian of Gansu in China in October of 2009.
The aim of this mixture was to reduce smooth muscle spasm in both the bowel and uterus (Matricaria recutita, Angelica sinensis
), reduce congestion in the uterus (Paeonia lactiflora, Angelica sinensis
), balance oestrogen and progesterone levels (Rhodiola rosea, Paeonia lactiflora and Angelica sinensis
) and support mood (Bone and Mills 2013).
The team examined dang gui (Angelica sinensis
), a plant used in Chinese medicine as a female tonic; hops (Humulus lupulus), a familiar ingredient in beer; vitex (Vitex angus-castus), a Mediterranean plant used to relieve menopausal symptoms; black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), a plant that Native Americans relied on as a cure for menopausal symptoms; blue cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides), a plant also used by Native Americans; and licorice root (Glycyrrhiza uralensis), the flavoring of the candy by the same name, now taken in the Netherlands as a female tonic.
