Astragalus Capsules feature select ingredients with a wide range of health benefits, including to support immune health and healthy digestive function and more.†
Based on more than 2,000 years in the TCM (Traditional Chinese Method) of formulation, Astragalus Capsules brings a holistic approach to your wellness routine, combining the herbal benefits of astragalus with probiotics to support the body in several ways—not by treating any one symptom.
Many probiotic strains are fragile and have to be refrigerated in order to survive. Even when you take them, they may not all fully make it into your gut. That's why Astragalus Capsules include Bacillus coagulans, a probiotic strain that withstands harsh conditions like stomach acid and heat and is naturally in the soil. These strains are tough, and they survive without refrigeration.
How to Use
We recommend taking Astragalus Capsules with a large glass of water or your favorite beverage.
Make the most of your Astragalus Capsules by focusing on consuming a nutrient-dense diet full of phytonutrients and anti-inflammatory foods — while avoiding overly processed foods.

What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to vital energy and is pronounced chee) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance.
This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they're out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship.
One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as Qi in TCM and prana in Ayurveda.
While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM.
In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.

Our products do not contain dairy, grains, nuts or soy; however, they are manufactured in facilities that may carry these allergens. This being said, all of our manufacturing partners are required to have and follow a thorough Allergen Program. The Allergen Program is to prevent the cross contamination of raw materials and processing of finished goods, where allergens may be present. Simply put, when it comes to our products and our suppliers, we follow industry best practices for full transparency and accuracy concerning our products. Therefore, where applicable for our products, we use the wording “made without dairy" and "made without nuts"
What is astragalus?
Astragalus is a plant within the Leguminosae (beans or legumes) family. The perennial flowering plant, also called milkvetch root and Huang-qi, grows from 16 to 36 inches tall and is native to the north and eastern regions of China. It’s also been traced back to Mongolia and Korea.
Astragalus roots are harvested from 4-year-old plants. Only two of the over 2,000 species of astragalus, Astragalus membranaceus and Astragalus mongholicus, are used in products.
