Astragalus: traditionally taken to strengthen Qi in TCM
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 TCM, when your Qi is depleted, you might feel like you lack vitality or catch colds frequently.1
Astragalus is traditionally used in TCM as a restorative strengthening 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).2
Astragalus is also traditionally taken in TCM to enhance vitality, as well as to help the body cope with and adapt to stress.
