Astragalus is one of the great tonic herbs of traditional Chinese medicine. Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus)
has a rich history of use in Asian cultures; it is native to China,
Mongolia and North Korea. Astragalus is believed to strengthen the
immune system, muscular systems and support metabolic functions. As an
immune system tonic, Astragalus tonifies what the Chinese call "wei qi"
or "protective qi" which is the energy that runs just below the surface
of the skin. Astragalus contains astragalosides and other
immunostimulant polysaccharides, beta-sitosterol, flavonoids, and trace
minerals, especially selenium.
