Astragalus root has been revered for centuries in Chinese Medicine and used as a general tonic and medicine for many ailments. It provides unique polysaccharides to the immune system, enhances strength, stamina, and energy, and may support healthy digestion and respiratory function.
Astragalus is one of the great tonic herbs as it strongly tonifies the vital Qi of the body. Our Qi is our daily energy dervied from our lungs as we breathe, and our food as we eat and digest. Astragalus tonifies our lungs and our digestive organs, particularly, the spleen. It is also a first class herb for maintaining a healthy immune system. Astragalus also houses what is called "upright qi" which is the energy in the body that supports upright posture and the correct position of the organs. Compounds in Astragalus have recently been discovered which may support the bodies' ability to age at a slower rate by keeping the chromosome “caps” called telomeres, healthy and long.
Usage: ½-1 tsp 1-2 times per day in water, tea, or favorite beverage. Use more when extra energy is desired. Or immune challenges are present
