The Deep Immune / Astragalus Combo is one of St. Francis Herbal Farm's best-selling products, for good reason, as it blends a number of herbs used in a variety of Asian herbal medicine traditions to stimulate improved immune function and ward off colds and flus. To ensure it is safe for kids, this children's version retains just its first two most active ingredients: Astragalus and codonopsis (or "Dang Shen," in Traditional Chinese Medicine), which have long been used to help maintain a healthy immune system and to serve as a vital energy tonic for fatigue, respectively. This combination is geared to children who suffer from recurring colds and flu.
