Supplementary Material

JQF quantitative analysis was performed using high performance liquid chromatography-triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (HPLC-QqQ-MS) in positive and negative ion modes. The separation was performed on an Eclipse plus C18, 4.6*10 mm, 3.5 um, by gradient elution using 0.1% formic acid in water (mobile phase A) and 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile as mobile phases. 13 peaks (stachydrine, gallic acid, oxypaeoniflorin, chlorogenic acid, rutin, paeoniflorin, caffeic acid, vanillic acid, ferulic acid, benzoyl paeoniflorin, senkyunolide A, and ligustilide) in the HPLC-MS chromatograms were unequivocally identified by comparison of their retention times (RTs), molecular weights, and MS data with reference data from the literature. Compound concentrations and percentages of ingredients in JQF are listed in Table S2 and Table S3.
