In Chinese medicine it’s believed that if your levels of Qi (life force energy) are low, you’ll often feel tired, run-down, or susceptible to frequent colds and lacking vitality.
The TCM tonic herb astragalus is traditionally used to not only strengthen immunity, but also to replenish or strengthen Qi.
In Chinese medicine astragalus is also traditionally used to support defensive Qi, a specific form of Qi that is traditionally believed to form part of the body’s immune defences.2
