Organic Astragalus powder
Organic Astragalus powder has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, its Chinese name ‘Huang qi’ is actually comprised of two Chinese words. The first word “Huang” (黃) means “yellow”, the colour of the herb. Yellow is also the colour of the “middle”, the “earth” and the “spleen”. The second word “Qi” (耆) means “superior” or “senior”. The Chinese name of the herb suggests that the herb was considered to be a superior herb used for many medicinal purposes.
Please note we have a small quantity of wild harvested astragalus in stock which is non-organic because it’s not cultivated.
