Product Description



Botanical Name - Astragalus membranaceus

Chinese Name - HUANG QI 

English Name - Milk Vetch

Astragalus membranaceus, commonly called Milk Vetch, is a flowering plant in the family Fabaceae. Found mostly in East Asia - China, Mongolia and Siberia. It is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Astragalus membranaceus is a perennial plant which can grow up to 0.3 m, preferring light, sandy and loamy well drained soils. It cannot grow in the shade. Generally flowering from June to August, the seeds ripen from July to September. Bees and butterflies are the main pollinators.


Medicinal Action and Uses

Adaptogen - Astragalus root is considered an adaptogen – it helps to build and restore overall health to the body.  It is especially used for cases of adrenal fatigue, in particular when symptoms manifest as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia.

Anti-Aging - Astragalus has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine for longevity, to invigorate and to strengthen the body. It has powerful anti-aging properties, slowing the aging process at a cellular level.

Cordial - the plant flavonoids present in Astragalus have cardioprotective effects, helping to prevent plaque build up in the arteries and narrowing of the blood vessel walls by protecting the inner wall of the vessel.

Immunostimulant -  Astragalus has a long and enduring history as a potent immune boosting herb and disease fighter.  It is known to increase the count of white blood cells and stimulate the production of antibodies, this builds up bodily resistance to viruses and bacteria.

Infertility - Astragalus has now been scientifically proven to increase sperm motility. It can also optimise testosterone and growth hormone levels.
