Codonopsis and Astragalus
Ginseng and Astragalus
Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination has classically been
called the "King of Combinations." It is a giant among classical tonic
formulations. It is traditionally said to promote the production and
circulation of Qi, support the digestive system, support nutrient assimilation,
support the normal healthy functions of the immune system, and to
strengthen muscles that help to support posture and the normal healthy position
of the organs. It is also an excellent blood tonic. Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination is used as a
tonic by anyone wishing to tonify or maintain a high
level of Qi.
This is the classical Ginseng and Astragalus
Combination used for many centuries in Asia. What distinguishes
Dragon Herbs’ Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination from other brands is the quality of
the herbs used to produce it and the production technology.
HERBS in China (and from most places) come in different grades based upon their variety, seed stock, growing source,
growing conditions, care of the cultivators or collectors, and processing at
various stages of the supply chain and during production.
a lot to consider. But Dragon Herbs does take ALL factors these into account in
selecting our raw materials and in producing our herbal products.
Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination is so widely consumed in
China that many domestic herb factories produce it. Most of this production
uses low grade herbs for price reasons. Many of the peasants of China take Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination, so
many factories produce it with very cheap materials so that it costs just
Herbs does not use low grade, less effective, raw materials for Codonopsis and Astragalus
Combination or any of its products. Dragon Herbs identifies sources of the
BEST raw material, the kind preferred in Shanghai or Hong Kong by those who
know herbs and want the best. We use this premium material to produce this
technology also matters. Most factories just throw the herbs into a tank and
cook the whole thing for a couple of hours, then they
make a powdered extract of the tea using a lot of excipient
(usually not natural). Dragon Herbs uses low temperature extraction using very
pure water and no chemicals. We add the herbs carefully at incremental stages.
Some of the herbs in Codonopsis and Astragalus
Combination can only be cooked for a few minutes. These “short
cook” herbs are cooked separately and carefully and added at the end. For
example, the Dang Gui should not be cooked as long as
some of the other herbs because of its high aromatic
oil content. Aged Tangerine Peel and Fresh Ginger must be cooked for just for a
few minutes at most because of their aromatic oil content. This is a true
secret (revealed) of superior herbal production.
very important process that most factories skip involves the collection of aromatic oils from the tea. Real Codonopsis and Astragalus
Combination has a sweet-spicy aroma. This is from the aromatic oils in the
herbs. If the herbs are overcooked and the oils are allowed to evaporate, the
true power of Codonopsis and Astragalus
Combination cannot be achieved – even if good quality herbs are used.
Since we use superb herbs to make this formula, the result is sublime.
Herbs always processes its herbs using an “oil trap.” An oil trap is a sophisticated device
connected to the extraction system. It captures evaporating aromatic oils and
collects them in crystallized form. These collected essential oils are
therefore not lost. They are added back into the extract at the end of the
process. And this makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!*
