How it works
Astragalus: traditionally used to improve immune defences in Chinese medicine
Fusion Health Astra 8 features astragalus, a highly valued and important immune tonic in both Chinese medicine and Western herbal medicine, where it's used to improve the natural immune defences of the body, enhancing immunity.

In Western herbal medicine, astragalus is traditionally taken to stimulate the body’s immune system responses while at the same time supporting the immune system to fight illness.

Astragalus also decreases the occurrence of common colds, based on its traditional use in TCM.

Feeling depleted?
In Chinese medicine it’s believed that if your levels of Qi(life force energy) are low, you’ll often feel tired, run-down, or susceptible to frequent colds and lacking vitality.

The TCM tonic herb astragalus is traditionally used to not only strengthen immunity, but also to replenish or strengthen Qi.

In Chinese medicine astragalus is also traditionally used to support defensive Qi,a specific form of Qi that is traditionally believed to form part of the body’s immune defences.2

In addition to its Qi-replenishing properties, astragalus is traditionally taken in TCM to increase vitality and help the body adapt to stress.
