Astragalus Root (Astragalus Membranaceus)
For over 2,000 years, Astragalus has been among the 50 elite tonic herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine due to its extraordinary ability to restore health on practically every level - emotionally, mentally, physically, energetically and spiritually. It is one of the few herbs cited in multiple ancient Chinese medical texts as a “Heaven Class”.
Astragalus is an esteemed longevity herb used by the Daoists in China and was part of the daily herbal regime consumed by Li Ching Yuen, a Chinese herbalist who is said to have lived to be 197 years old.
Astragalus root is considered to be one of the most powerful Qi (life force) tonics on the planet. Based on Chinese herbal philosophy, it is the depletion of or imbalance of Qi that underlies all disease and dysfunction in the body. Therefore, bountiful, flowing Qi (which Astragalus offers) is believed to be the key to radiant health and longevity - and when consumed regularly it is believed to restore a youthful glow to the skin and reduce wrinkles.
This is a herb that has stood the test of time and continues to be validated as researchers study the active medicinal compounds within the plant.
Studies show that astragalus can reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and protect the cardiovascular system.
