The legendary Qi (Chi) tonic of the Orient, astragalus is famed for its ability to build strong circulation and protect the body by enhancing surface immunity.
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is one of the great tonic herbs of traditional Chinese medicine. Astragalus has a rich history of use in Asian cultures; it is native to China, Mongolia and North Korea. Astragalus tonifies what the Chinese call “wei qi” or “protective qi” which is the energy that runs just below the surface of the skin. When this aspect of the immune system is strong it is hard for foreign invaders to penetrate the body at all. Astragalus is also rich in immune-upgrading polysaccharides and nourishes immunity both on the surface and at deep levels (especially the respiratory system).
