Astragalus is one of the top herbs in Daoist Tonic Herbalism. It is most notably known for its ability to improve immune function as well as supporting multiple other bodily systems such as the heart and kidneys.
Astragalus is said to nourish both the spleen and lung meridians, giving it a role in enhancing digestion (spleen meridian) and immunity and lung capacity (lung meridian). It is also known as an adaptogenic herb and overall tonic.
Adaptogens are substances that modulate our stress response, calming us down when we’re too elevated and perking us up when we’re too low. Each adaptogenic herb has its own nuances.
Astragalus has been used to both recover from illness and fatigue while also supporting the body when it is healthy, earning it the status of both a Qi and blood tonic.
It has positive effects on metabolic health, modulating both blood sugar and cholesterol levels and showing protective effects against a number of metabolic diseases such as Cardiovascular diseases.
