For more than 2,000 years, Chinese herbalists have valued Astragalus for its adaptogenic properties, as well as for its ability to tonify the body's "vital force" known as the Qi, and it is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to tonify the lungs and to combat frequent colds. More recently, Astragalus has been found to support healthy immune function through numerous mechanisms. Non-clinical studies using Astragalus have demonstrated its ability to stimulate the production of and increase the activity of specialized white blood cells, such as T-Cells and Natural Killer Cells, and it has also been studied for its role in the support of healthy liver and vascular function.
