Astragalus: traditionally used to enhance immune defences in Chinese medicine

Astragalus: traditionally taken to strengthen Qi in Chinese medicine
Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is a type of life force energy. In Chinese medicine, it’s traditionally considered responsible for fuelling all bodily functions. According to Chinese medicine, when your qi is depleted, you might feel like you lack vitality or catch colds frequently.1
Astragalus is traditionally used in Chinese medicine as a restorative qi tonic that also promotes protective Qi (a specific type of Qi traditionally believed to form part of the body’s immune defences against infection), and strengthens lung qi.2
Astragalus is also traditionally taken to enhance vitality, as well as to help the body cope with and adapt to stress in Chinese medicine.
