Scientific Name: Astragalus propinquus
Part used: Root.
Astragalus is a versatile herb in Chinese medicine, which can be combined with other herbs or used by itself. It stimulates and strengthens the immune system and promotes the production of T-lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that is vital to the proper function of the body’s defence mechanisms.
Chinese herbalists say it helps to reduce spontaneous sweating or night sweats. It acts as an anti-viral, diuretic, and vasodilator, which has the effect of increasing blood flow, warming and energizing the system while reducing the blood pressure.
Entering Meridians: Lung and Spleen.
Do not confuse with Huang Qin.
