n-Butanol extract of Saposhnikovia divaricata (Turcz.) Schischk. (BSDS) was found to lower high and low whole blood shear viscosity, plasma viscosity, fibrinogen content, hematocrit and whole blood reduction viscosity when given intramuscularly at a dose equivalent to 5.6 g/kg/d of the medicinal herb to rats for 10 consecutive days. But it showed no obvious effects on blood sedimentation, K value in blood sedimentation equation, maximum aggregation rate and depolymerization rate in 1 minute. These results suggested that BSDS could promote blood circulation to remove blood stasis.
