Chinese herbal medicine Oriental Botanicals® Astragalus 8 is used to help the immune system and support a return to good health.

The herbs in Astragalus 8 have been used for centuries to help people strengthen their body’s defences and restore good health. Astragalus 8 is based on an ancient Chinese therapy called Fu Zheng Pei Ben. In Chinese medicine terms, Fu Zheng means to rectify and support the normal, healthy vital energy (Qi) of all body systems, while Pei Ben means to strengthen the resistance mechanisms of the body especially those relating to healthy immune function.

The scientifically proven herb Astragalus is combined with seven other potent immune system herbs including Ganoderma (Reishi), Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Schisandra, Siberian ginseng, Ligustrum and Licorice to create this modern Chinese herbal medicine. Astragalus 8 is used to assist with colds, coughs and flu (upper respiratory tract infections), chronic fatigue, and recurrent conditions such as sore throats.

For people recovering from illness, Astragalus 8 can be taken during convalescence. It is not recommended for acute infection – while the illness is upon you – rather, Oriental Botanicals® Bactevir® would be a better option, to be followed later with Astragalus 8, for recovery and immunity building.
