Tea Talk: The root of the fall. (Astragalus root that is)

Ase' Tea Baes! Today, we're sippin' on Astragalus root and how it can take your teas for wellness game to a whole new level. Astragalus root, also known as Huang Qi, has been a beloved herb in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. You can grab yourself a cup of this goodness with my 2 new fall drops Immun O Guard & Vitali-tea (a close cousin to your beloved fave Inner G). Let's explore why this herb is a must-have in your wellness arsenal this fall.

**The Magic of Astragalus: Key Constituents**

Astragalus root is like a treasure chest filled with health-boosting goodies. It's packed with potent constituents that can do wonders for your body. The star of the show is the unique class of compounds called saponins, which are known for their immune-boosting properties. These saponins help your body adapt to stress, making Astragalus an incredible adaptogen.

This root is also loaded with flavonoids, polysaccharides, and amino acids that support overall vitality. Together, these compounds create a symphony of wellness that can keep you feeling your best.

**Astragalus as an Adaptogen: Your Body's Shield**

Astragalus isn't just any herb – it's a superstar adaptogen. But what's an adaptogen, you ask? Well, think of it as your body's personal shield against stress. It helps your system adapt to the ups and downs of life, ensuring you stay balanced and energized. Astragalus is like that trusty friend who's always got your back, no matter what life throws your way.

**Proper Steeping Techniques**

Now, let's talk about how to make the most of Astragalus in your tea. To extract all the goodness, here's a simple steeping guide:

1. **Water Temperature:** Start with boiling water, astragalus is a tough root, and a little extra heat helps unlock its benefits.

2. **Tea Quantity:** Use about one teaspoon of dried Astragalus root per 8-ounce cup. Feel free to adjust to your taste.

3. **Steeping Time:** Let it steep for 5-7 minutes. This gives Astragalus enough time to work its magic.

4. **Blending:** Astragalus blends beautifully with a variety of herbs and teas. Let's explore two wellness tea blends where it shines.
