Effective Use of Mild Acting Herbs I. Huang Qi (Astragalus)

Effective Use of Mild Acting Herbs I. Huang Qi (Astragalus)
Special Offer
Volume 1 Issue 2 - April 2006

by Subhuti Dharmananda

Huang Qi (Astragalus root) is a commonly used Chinese herb in the Fabaceae Family (legumes). Some practitioners may think of it as a "strong” qi tonic. Yang Yifan, in her text ‘Comparisons and Characteristics of Chinese Herbs’, places astragalus well below ginseng but slightly above codonopsis (Dang Shen) in terms of its "strength” as a qi tonic (Yang 2002). Nonetheless, astragalus fits well with the concept of being among the very mild herbs of Chinese medicine. For those who have used the root slices in tea making, are aware they are quite fibrous and release only a small amount of material into the tea. Its taste is mild and sweet.
