Astragalus is native to Northern China and the elevated regions of the Chinese provinces. The Chinese name huang qi translates as “yellow leader,” referring to the yellow color of the root and its status as one of the most important tonic herbs. Traditional Chinese Medicine used this herb for night sweats, deficiency of chi
(e.g., fatigue, weakness, and loss of appetite), and diarrhoea.
1 - 3 capsules daily
The herb has been used for respiratory infections, immune depression, heart failure, viral infections e.g. herpes simplex, liver and kidney disease such as nephritis, and as a diuretic.
In Chinese medicine astragalus has been used alone and in combination for liver fibrosis, acute viral myocarditis, heart failure, and amenorrhea.

Astragalus exerts fibrinolytic effects and so patients taking anticoagulants, antiplatelet, or anti-thrombotic agents should consult their physician.
