For more than 2000 years, Chinese herbalists have valued Astragalus for its adaptogenic properties, as well as for its ability to to unify the body's "vital force" known as the Qi. More recently, Astragalus has been found to support healthy immune function through numerous mechanisms. Non-clinical studies using Astragalus have demonstrated it can support the healthy production of and activity of specialized white blood cells. Astragalus has also been studied for its role in the support of healthy liver and vascular function.

What is an adaptogen?
According to the folks at Merriam-Webster, an adaptogen is “a non-toxic substance and especially a plant extract that is held to increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning.” By definition, adaptogens promote a balanced stress response by helping the body “adapt” to the harmful effects that stress can have on the body.
Adaptogenic herbs such as Astragalus, not only support stress but help support a healthy immune function. Astragalus is a natural source of flavonoids, free amino acids, polysaccharides, trace minerals and polyphenols, active components that can help support immune system function.
