A Chinese herbal remedy to tonify qi, nourish blood and essence. Sample indications for use: chronic immune deficiency, frequent infections, general weakness.
Astragalus 10+ is a tonic prescription that has the principal aim of enhancing the immune system functions, though it can be used as a general tonic for qi, blood, and essence. Deficiencies of the immune function may be caused by chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, by infectious agents (especially viruses), and by various stresses (e.g., environmental exposure to extremes of temperature, emotional disturbance, irregular habits of sleep, exercise, and eating). The particular herbs selected for this formula are ones that have been demonstrated by modern research to enhance immune functions.
A Chinese description of this formula is a broad-based tonic that supplements qi, blood, yin, and yang. In the current classification system, astragalus, atractylodes, eleuthero, ginseng, and licorice are qi tonics; they improve digestive functions and help overcome fatigue. Morus fruit and ho-shou-wu are blood tonics; they enrich the blood and may slow the development of signs of premature aging such as dry skin, dry and graying hair, and loss of visual and auditory acuity. Ophiopogon and ligustrum are yin tonics; they moisten dryness and prevent overheating, such as occurs with menopausal hot flashes, afternoon flushing, or night sweating. Cistanche is a yang tonic that, together with ginseng and eleuthero, is invigorating. Schizandra and ganoderma serve as general tonics with mild sedative nature that aid getting a good night's sleep.
