.............................................................................

An herb native to China, astragalus (Astragalus membranaceous) has been used for more than 2,000 years to balance the vital energy--or qi --which is thought to flow through all beings. A relative of licorice and the pea plant, astragalus appears to give the immune system a powerful boost.

Astragalus is a perennial plant, approximately 16 inches tall, that is native to the northern and eastern parts of China as well as Mongolia. It has hairy stems with leaves made up of 12 to 18 pairs of leaflets. The root is usually harvested from 4-year-old plants.
