(Astragalus propinquus / Astragalus membranaceus)

Adaptogenic Root / Medicinal Herb

Astragalus is a member of the pea family, native to parts of China, Mongolia, and Korea. Its roots have been used for immune support in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Considered both tonifying and protective, astragalus helps strengthen the immune system over time and is a strong ally when it comes to preventing illness. 

Astragulus has a long history of being used together with reishi. The root and mushroom amplify each others’ immune-boosting effects, which is why you’ll find both in our Protect bars.
