"I’ve always loved SF. astragalus. My body responds beautifully to this product. It’s so smooth and supports my energy and health so well. A truly nurturing natural medicine. Thank you." Janita I.
One of the ultimate Qi tonics of the Taoist herbal system, astragalus has a rich history of use in Asian cultures; it is native to China, Mongolia, and North Korea.
Astragalus is believed to strengthen the immune system, muscular systems and support metabolic function.
As an immune system tonic, astragalus tonifies what the Chinese call 'Wei Qi' or 'protective Qi,' which is the energy that runs just below the surface of the skin.
Astragalus has been used to cultivate a robust circulatory system, enhance surface and deep immunity, tonify the Liver, support Spleen Qi, and boost vitality.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about this herb is that above all other herbs, tonic herbalists throughout the Orient and now the West will take this root herb more consistently and constantly than any other, due to its ability to nourish the core functions of life and promote longevity and vitality.
Astragalus is one of the few herbs that is recommended for kids and is a useful tonic to have in the family home apothecary to assist in keeping the immune system strong.
Traditionally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to:
- Help improve immune system function
- Help increase vitality
- Relieve weariness/feeling of weakness

In ancient Taoist medicine, tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms were used to nourish and tonify specific Organ systems within the body. These Organ systems correlate with the natural elements, and their direct effect can be classified as either Major or Minor.
Major | Lung Metal | Spleen Earth
Minor | Liver Wood | Kidney Water
When there is harmony between the body systems and elements, we cultivate the expression of health known as our Treasures.
Major | Qi | Blood
Adults, mix 400mg in 250ml warm water & drink immediately. Take three times a day.
Works well in hot or cold drinks, broths and meals or on its own as a tonic herb tea. Always use a dry spoon.

Sourcing herbs from their spiritual homeland is born from the Taoist philosophy, called Di Dao (地道). Di Dao poetically translates as the ‘way of the Earth,’ and shows us where to harvest herbs if we wish to experience the herb’s true Spirit. From its ‘original place’ or ‘spiritual homeland’, a method that results in a product that is both full spectrum and medicinally robust.
The relationship that the herb’s growth cycle has developed with the atmosphere, bacteria, insects, mycelium, tree networks and stars of its Di Dao location is something that has been observed and discovered over a very long time, and we feel it deserves acknowledgement, respect and conservation.
Di Dao is the classification given to the highest quality herbs in China, and describes the core sourcing philosophy that we practice here at SuperFeast.
SuperFeast herbs are expertly extracted by trained herbalists using unique and patented techniques, specific to the herb. These techniques are also ancient, as old as herbalism itself - water, organic rice alcohol, time and pressure create your extracts. Modern techniques like spray-drying help preserve the quality and integrity of the extracts. It's the best of ancient meets modern.
We don't follow a pharmaceutical model, we don't isolate, we don't standardise, herbs are treated uniquely.
We extract following the Hou Huo (火候) technique, the art of decocting / extracting a herb specifically through adjusted heat, menstruum & length of time. This term roughly translates to heat control; crucial moment; maturity. The practicing tonic herbalists, who use this technique while extracting your herbs, combine their expertise with the relationship they have with the ancient herbs & Taoist philosophy.
All leading to the superior herbal experience that those in our community know & love.Unless otherwise noted, all our products are 10:1 extracts.
See our FAQs and Blogs for more on our extraction processes.
10:1 Extraction Ratio
This standard ratio of ours means we use 10 kilos of dry herb to create 1kg of extract powder. This is a traditionally-used extract ratio used in Classical Chinese Medicine. We like this ratio as it allows us to create a product which contains the maximum possible array of naturally occurring medicinal components in their innate and natural ratios. At this ratio there is little waste from what we extract, so we have a true full-spectrum powder without having to eliminate any of the unknown or lesser known compounds that are symbiotic to the herb’s effects.
Full Spectrum vs. Standardisation
There is a tendency in Westernised herbal medicine to focus on isolating or increasing active ingredients in herbal products and drugs. Taoist (and traditional) herbalists focus instead on using only whole plants and natural extraction mediums and menstruums (solvents) like water (or tea, or broth) and alcohol/fat (tinctures, wines, oils, etc.) to extract every element possible from the herb. This intention comes from a desire to keep the herb completely unified where possible, and this is the same philosophy and method we apply to our SuperFeast products.
Each herb has hundreds, if not thousands, of bioactive compounds that contribute to the full scope of the herb’s medicinal benefits, and it takes a lot of care to ensure as many of these are present in the extraction as possible. It is through these full-spectrum extractions in ancient times that Taoists were able to identify that these herbs were in fact tonic, and could aid us in cultivating vibrancy within our body and mind.
Remember you’ve bought the highest quality 100% pure herbal extract, there’s no additives or starches added to absorb moisture. To keep your herbs super fresh and ready to rock, we advise keeping them stored in a cool dry space. Ideally your kitchen pantry. Always leave your desiccant (the little white pillow in your jar or bag) in there to absorb moisture.
If you, like us, live in a humid climate, we advise taking extra special care when storing your herbs. Bulk bags can be kept in the freezer in a sealed container. If keeping bags outside the freezer, just ensure you push the air out before sealing and they will stay fresh.
It is best to maintain a consistent herbal practice once the seal is removed, this will minimise the chance of your herbs hardening.
If you are in a humid area, and you only have a small amount of herb left on your jar, it is recommended to occasionally shake the jar to prevent clumping and setting.
NOTE: Capsule products are less fussy, though should still be kept dry and stored in a cool place to ensure longevity.
