With traditional use dating back over 2,000 years, Astragalus has become one of the Superior Tonic herbs of Eastern & Western tonic herbalism where it has been known to strengthen both the body’s life force and protective energy.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Astragalus is a Qi (Energy) tonic herb that directly tones the Lungs, Spleen, our protective ‘immune system’ Qi (known as ‘Wei Qi’), the Yang Qi, and blood. Astragalus demonstrates a warming supportive effect on digestion helping you extract nutrition (Gui Qi) from the food you eat, while opening the lungs helping you to extract Qi from the Air you breathe – these forces combining together is believed to help the body to fight off external pathogens. Used as a blood tonic, Astragalus has also been used traditionally to help move fluids in the body to relieve water retention and bloating. Our Astragalus is grown Semi-Wild; it is seeded by hand in high mountain areas that are irrigated directly from local spring sources and then left to flourish in its natural wild environment until harvest. Upon harvest is it put through a special water extraction process to capture the ideal components while providing a chemical/alcohol solvent free extraction – providing a clean full spectrum product with wild qi characteristics. Our Astragalus can be easily added to any Elixir, Tea, Smoothie, or other culinary creation of your choice.
