Are you wondering how you can begin to add herbs into your child’s diet?

One simple way is to start shifting them away from juice and adding herbal teas to their diet.

Astragalus apple juice was one way I did this when my son was very sick.

Astragalus Membranaceus apple juice is super mild and sweet so they may love the taste.

But, wait Chinese medicine suggests you only use Astragalus when you feel well.

What is Astragalus Membranaceus good for?

For kids and adults…

  • lowered immunity (add reishi tincture for more boost!)
  • weak lungs
  • low energy

For women..

  • blood loss
  • prolapsed organs
  • low back pain and incontinence

Where do I buy my herbs from?

I like Mountain rose herbs.  Here is the root cut   or sliced. 

Is it safe to take every day?

This is a well-tolerated herb, I offer this to my son during the fall and winter season.

When should you avoid astragalus?

  • It’s considered likely safe but used with caution.- particularly if you have auto-immune disorders you may want to avoid astragalus
  • Caution if you have diabetes, or are on anticoagulant therapy due to the increased risk of bleeding
  • Traditionally it is NOT used during acute infections

The best way to use astragalus is in your soup! But..because kids love juice, I started blending this in my son’s drink to boost his immunity.

I hope you like it!
