Astragalus Root Tea – China’s Premier Qi Tonic
Astragalus root ranks as one of the most potent health tonics in the world. Astragalus membranaceus is used in traditional tonic herbalism to strengthen the primary energy of the body and to strengthen all metabolic, respiratory and eliminative functions. As an energizer, astragalus is famed for its strengthening effects on the outside of the body, in particular to the musculature and skin. Astragalus has long been considered a major tonic for athletes and those who work hard physically. It helps relieve fatigue and is used by athletes around the world for strength.
Most importantly, however, Astragalus is rated as one of the world’s premier immune tonifying (regulating) substances, and is considered in the Orient as a quintessential protective super tonic herb. Astragalus, like many of the major tonic herbs, has a very complex constituent profile. Primarily, the active constituents of astragalus consist of triterpene glycosides, polysaccharides and flavonoids. Astragalus also contains numerous amino acids, trace elements and various other components.
The root of Astragalus membranaceus, an herb that grows in northern China, has been used for over 2000 years to strengthen the body as a whole. Astragalus is believed by the Oriental people to strengthen muscle and support metabolic functions. One of the most important herbs in the world, Astragalus has been recognized as a superb and potent immune system tonic by modern researchers. It supports the normal healthy functions of the immune system.
Astragalus is said to have an effect on the “surface” of the body --- that is, it is used to tonify the “Protective Qi,” known as Wei Qi in Chinese traditional healthcare. This Protective Qi is a special kind of energy which circulates just under the skin and in the muscle. Protective Qi is a Yang energy. Protective Qi circulates in the subcutaneous tissues providing suppleness to the flesh and adaptive energy to the skin. This function is essential to life. Wei Qi is the energy of the skin and immune system, in harmony, that responds to changes in the environment.
An important effect of Astragalus is in its ability to fortify the “Upright Qi.” Upright Qi is the energy allocated by the body to maintain upright posture and to maintain the position of the organs in their healthy position in their battle with gravity. As one gets older, this Upright Qi is easily depleted.
Hundreds of studies seem to support the potent immune modulating activities of astragalus root. It is routinely used in Asia to promote a strong immune system. Astragalus also has significant anti-inflammatory action. Astragalus has also been show to improve male fertility by improving sperm motility.
The primary active constituents of astragalus, the triterpene glycosides, are saponins similar to the saponins in ginseng, though all of the astragalus saponins (triterpene glycosides) have their own chemical identities. One particular astragaloside found naturally in astragalus is known as Astragaloside IV. This saponin has been determined to be the most active health-positive constituent in astragalus. It is believed that Astragaloside IV may be able to help protect telomeres and to prevent their deterioration over time due to stress and toxicity. Telomeres are chemical bindings at the end of our chromosomes that hold our DNA in place. Aging has been associated with the degeneration and loss of telomeres. Astragaloside IV has also been found to be neuroprotective to brain cells.
Astragalus has long been considered a major tonic for athletes and those who work hard physically. It helps relieve fatigue and is used by athletes around the world for strength.
The polysaccharides found in Astragalus are also extremely potent immune enhancers. These polysaccharides are similar to those found in Maitake, Reishi mushroom and other immune enhancing herbs.
