Health Concerns Astra 4 90 tablets

Astra 4 (Si Jun Zi Tang) is a Health Concerns herbal formula that combines the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with modern research to help strengthen the immune system and energize the body. 

The carefully selected herbal components in the formula have also been used to treat a variety of other health concerns, including fatigue, adrenal deficiencies, diarrhea, systemic weakness, muscle aches, and mental fog for many centuries in Eastern Medicine. 

Besides these, though, Astragalus, Ligustrum, Oryza, and Licorice have potent adaptogenic attributes, which means that they help the body cope with stress (both mental and physical). 

And, if all that is not enough, the same herbs even play a critical role in the reduction of respiratory infections while enhancing the health of the lungs. 

In TCM, the particular herbal blend is used to tonify the Kidney, Spleen, and Lung Qi and strengthen Wei Qi.
