Botanical Name: Astragalus membranaceus
Astragalus root has a sweet taste and a rich yellow color that permeates its woody appearance. This frost hardy herb thrives in chilly northern temperate zones! Astragalus is a powerful adaptogen which is often found in traditional Chinese medicines. Tonic blends that contain Astragalus membranaceus have been used for centuries to aid the circulatory system, treat low energy, manage blood sugar levels and most notably to stimulate the immune system.
Although you can enjoy this root all year long, its perfect brewed as a tea either by itself or with some of your other favorite herbs to help fight off colds and keep you warm!
