How it Works
Fusion Health Astra 8 Immune Tonic contains astragalus and Siberian ginseng.
Astragalus is considered one of the most important immune tonics in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), where it’s used to help reduce the frequency of colds and flu.
Similarly, Siberian ginseng is used to address lowered resistance to colds and flu in traditional Western herbal medicine, and both herbs have been shown to support healthy immune cell function.
Feeling run down?
Fatigue, stress and reduced immune health often occur side by side. In addition to their immune-supporting properties, astragalus and Siberian ginseng are regarded as having anti-fatigue actions and are used to raise vitality in traditional Chinese and/or Western herbal medicine.
Siberian ginseng also supports the body’s natural resistance to stress, as does the traditional Chinese herbal medicine schisandra.
Also available as a herbal liquid.
