About Astragalus Tincture: A member of the bean family (Fabaceae), Astragalus, for all its sweetness and food-like quality, is a powerful plant that is essential to many traditional health and wellness systems throughout the world. The roots of this hardy perennial are strong, deeply rooted, and nourishing to the soil where they grow. When we use Astragalus, we too are blessed by the sweet, building, and strengthening qualities of these beautiful roots.
When taken over several weeks or months, especially in the late summer/early autumn and winter, and again throughout the gardening season, Astragalus deeply supports healthy immune function and strengthens our lungs. We may be more open to receive emotional and physical inspiration from our environment and the beauty of the natural world. This magnificent herb offers us the nourishment and strength to think clearly, to stand up and to be our authentic selves. We find support to digest both our food and our life experiences with more grace. Astragalus is considered to be the queen of the Chi/Qi Tonics in Chinese Herbal Medicine.
