Qi, foreign in concept and practice in western medicine, is the root of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). According to TCM, qi or ch’i, usually translated as “vital energy”, governs all aspects of biological and physiological activities in the human body. TCM practitioners have believed qi is used to measure the health, vitality, and well-being of an individual. Strong qi is associated with better energy and physical stamina, stronger potential to ward off stress and other health ailments.*
NuLiv Science’s 20 years of research in AstraGin® and its other proprietary ingredients, mostly comprised of qi herbs, such as Astragalus, leads us to believe the health benefits associated with qi herbs are related to the anabolic and catabolic metabolisms that regulate many basic biological functions in the human body that are manifested in physiological expressions in energy level and sense of wellbeing.
