Ze Lan - Invigorate Blood and Regulate Menses
LV, SP (9-15g)


Ze Lan - (Ze Land is near captain!)

Before they found 'ze land!' the crewmembers of Colombus' ships had their blood invigorated by a female sailor with irregular menses and almost mutinied because a swelling wave caused a traffic jam and their coffee stores were washed overboard. Luckily just then the lookout spotted "Ze Land!".

Sailing to the New World was particularly difficult for the pregnant women (cc: pregnancy).
