This combination of organic Astragalus and organic Reishi is widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. The organic Reishi is carefully grown on organic millet to nurture its level of polysaccharides, and the organic Astragalus root is classified as "premium grade" due to the age and the size of the root.
The use of Astragalus dates back to the 5th century where it was described as a superior herb due to its tonic action. This supreme group of herbs was described as "rulers ... they control the maintenance of life and correspond to heaven." Of this group of tonic herbs, Astragalus has earned the highest regard and is known as the "yellow leader." Currently, Astragalus is listed in the traditional medicine guides (pharmacopoeia) of China and Japan.
Western herbalists began using Astragalus in the 1800's as a tonic. It became more popular in the 1980's as an important aid in strengthening the natural defense system of the body. It is presently being studied by researchers at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in collaboration with the Federal Government's Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) research program. The clinical study will focus on botanicals that affect the immune system of patients with cancer and infectious disease. Note: This does not prove the effectiveness of Astragalus in the treatment of cancer, and we do not advocate the use of herbs for self-treatment for any serious disease without the advice of a qualified health care professional.
Reishi is highly regarded in both Chinese and Japanese cultures. Historically, royalty would use this revered mushroom in the hopes of obtaining longevity and to maintain calmness and thought during meditation. It was not until the 1970's that this mushroom was introduced to the West. The red Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum) have demonstrated the most significant health-enhancing effects.
