The Life Saving Herb That Few People Know About

Astragalus (ah-straga-lus) is one of the most powerful herb for energy and vitality but you may not have heard of it. It is often touted for its ability to enhance the immune system but astragalus’ greatest gift is providing vitality, strength, and energy by enhancing adrenal gland function.

We can say that enhancing immune function and energy fundamentally go hand and hand. But in the case of astragalus there is noticeable boost right away. It provides a deep core energy and strength that not only helps you get through your day but has the extra benefit of nourishing your body’s vigor on a fundamental level. It is similar to ashwagandha in this way but there is more “umph,” or get up and go, that astragalus provides. Astragalus gives you a bounce to your step.

Astragalus, or Huáng Qí in Chinese, has been used in traditional chinese medicine for thousands of years but has been gaining popularity in the west. In eastern healing circles, the herb is widely known to help restore Qi (pronounced “chi”), or life force, in the body very quickly. But people take this herb throughout flu season to protect the body.

Since astragalus helps regulate adrenal function, it therefore helps to regular all hormones in the body and thus had very positive effect on mood as well-- uplifting the spirit.

Pro Tip:

Astragalus is also a key herb I recommend if you are trying to quit the coffee habit. You get the boost without taxing your adrenal glands.

Now you know...

  • Astragalus is the best herb for the adrenal glands and supporting sustained energy throughout the day.

  • It fortifies the immune system and enhances overall vitality and strength.

  • Some research even suggests that it helps repair your telomeres and DNA, increasing lifespan.
