Codonopsis and Astragalus Combinatio 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 and support nutrient assimilation, and 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. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Codonopsis and Astragalus Combination from other brands is the superior quality of the herbs used to produce it and the advanced production technology. In many classical herbal books, this formulation is called “Ginseng and Astragalus Combination,” but the formula traditionally contains no Ginseng, it contains the major tonic Qi herb Codonopsis. To comply with modern labeling requirements, we have chosen to rename the classical formula to reflect this fact and to accurately convey to our clients that this product uses Codonopsis, not Ginseng.

Dragon Herbs practices Tonic Herbalism, which is based on a 5000 year old system of health promotion, protection, and psychological transformation.
The highest level of health care stresses the promotion of positive health as the primary goal. When sufficiently nurtured, our body is fully capable of regulating its own multitude of independent yet united functions, the way nature intended. Science has not been able to, and will never be able to, match that power of Nature. The herbs used for this approach have traditionally been called the superior herbs, but today they are called the tonic herbs. The utilization of the tonic herbs is called Tonic Herbalism.
The tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. The Chinese tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These very special natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living. The tonic herbs are not harsh and are not specifically medicinal in the conventional sense.
Tonic herbs come from China. They also come from North and South America, Europe, Indonesia, Tibet, Bhutan, Africa, New Zealand, Korea, Japan, Mongolia, Russia and almost every region of the world. Tonic herbs are by their very nature safe and may be used for a lifetime.
