Tian Qi is the root of Panax Notoginseng of the Araliaceae family. Another name for Tianqi is San Qi (Three-Seven) because it is believed that the best Tianqi should be harvested between three and seven years. An earlier or later harvest of Tianqi will not be as efficacious, particularly in its hemostatic action.
USES OF TIAN QI
PROMOTES BLOOD CIRCULATION / STOPS BLEEDING
Tian Qi is an important herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine owing to its abilities to eliminate blood statis, reduce swellings and pain, and stop bleeding. It is widely used in the treatment of traumatic injuries, various kinds of bleeding and in many emergencies. At home, Notoginseng can be used to make a drink that promotes the healing of minor scrapes and cuts. It also nourishes the blood and promotes metabolism in the eldery and weak. Hence, Tian Qi has come to be known as Jinbu huan, translated ad "cannot be exchanged for gold", due to its precious value.
Tian Qi can be used as a tonic for convalescents and women after childbirth as it can activate circulation of blood and Qi, and restore energy levels. With its ability to stop excessive bleeding and clear lochia (postnatal discharge), Notoginseng can be beneficial for women who have given birth. However, Notoginseng should be avoided altogether during pregnancy.
