Ron Teegaurden has been studying and working with Chinese Herbal Medicine since 1971 and has written two major books on Chinese Tonic Herbalism. In this video he discusses the many benefits of Astragalus membranaceus and the science behind it.
Astragalus, or Huang Qi, is the primary “Qi”, or energy tonic in Chinese medicine. If you are feeling a bit “droopy” then Astragalus is the herb for you! Great for the immune system too.
