In China, Astragalus is called Huang Qi or “yellow leader.” It’s been used for over 2,000 years and is highly regarded as one of Traditional Chinese Medicine’s most potent and prestigious herbs. It is now one of the primary immune tonics used by Western herbalists for strengthening individuals who may be immunocompromised. It is seen as helping to prevent colds, flu, and other external inflections. It has also been used to reduce the toxicity and side effects of chemotherapy and drugs like steroids.*
Astragalus is an all-season ally. Many herbalists particularly favor it to turn one’s own body into a defensive shield against winter bugs, but it’s also a powerful energy booster.* It’s another botanical buddy that supports the superhero in you.
