Astragalus / Huang Qi
Why we Love it
Astragalus is a powerful adaptogen that can flexibly support our body’s ability to adapt to environmental and life stressors.
How it Heals
In Chinese medicine, Astragalus is used to “invigorate vital energy (Qi)” and strengthen bodily resistance to disease. It also strengthens the spleen and raises the Yang Qi of the spleen and stomach.
In Western terms, Astragalus is an adaptogen, which is any herb that can change its function depending on the specific needs of the body. Specifically, Astragalus is a key medicinal herb for the treatment of gynecological diseases, including menstrual disorders, female genital pain, menopausal disorders, etc.
Fun fact: In TCM, Astragalus is believed to prolong life!
How we use it
"Astragalus is best known as a deep immune tonic, traditionally used to enhance the "periphery" so that wind (considered a pathogen in Chinese medicine) and other invasions are kept at bay."
