Astragalus is one of the great tonic herbs for increasing day to day energy and supporting immune function. It is also an herb that supports digestive function and helps to build blood. According to Classical Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is categorized as an Energy (Qi) tonifying herb. It thus directly supports the Lung and Spleen organs in the body. By supporting those organs, your body is better able to derive energy from the foods you eat and the air you breathe.
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. It helps the body to fight off external pathogens that you may come in contact with.
Astragalus also houses what is call "upright qi" which is the energy in the body that supports upright posture and the correct position of the organs. Weak "upright qi" can lead to organ prolapse, slumping or slouching, and general feelings of fatigue.
