Huang Qi, also known as Astragalus root, is sweet in taste and slightly warming in action. It strengthens the vital force (Qi), boosts the immune system, and strengthens the heart and lungs.
Astragalus root is a very important vital energy (Qi) in TCM, as important as ginseng root. It has long been used to treat immune deficiency and fatigue (including from chemotherapy), to heal wounds, and to improve digestion and reduce edema caused by cardiac weakness. It is also very useful for chronic or acute low blood pressure. Astragalus root and rehmannia root are key herbs in most TCM prescriptions for treating chronic nephritis. Astragalus is noticeably stimulating, and its action is described as being able to "push the blood," and "bring energy up to the head."
