Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day Add if you want one spoonful of honey at a time and dissolve over very low heat until you reach desired sweetness. To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10 'to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve.

Although astragalus root is generally considered safe to use medicinally, consuming more than the recommended dosage may suppress the immune system.

In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you’re taking other medications or have health problems.
