IMMUNITY COOKIES



Contributor: Brianna Beard

"You will feel so energized and full of vitality after consuming one of these cookies! Astragalus (Huang Qi) has been a foundational herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years. It is included in formulas to support Qi - the conceptual “shield” which serves to protect the body."

- Brianna Beard

Vegan, gluten-free cookies that bring the uplifting, protective energetics of Astragalus. Thank you, Brianna, for this immunity-boosting recipe!

Our immune system is essential for our survival. Without an immune system, our bodies would be open to attack from bacteria, viruses, parasites, and more. It is our immune system that keeps us healthy as we drift through a sea of pathogens. There are many ways to support and strengthen your immune system. Food, and in particular, medicinal herbs, are very effective at maintaining a robust immune system.

These delicious almond butter cookies are superpowered with Astragalus, Gingko and Ginseng. While these lovely herbs are optional for the recipe, I highly recommend trying one or all three! You will feel so energized and full of vitality after consuming one of these cookies! Astragalus (Huang Qi) has been a foundational herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine for hundreds of years. It is included in formulas to support Qi (chi), or the conceptual “shield” which serves to protect the body. It is well known as a tonic to strengthen the immune system.

I love vegan, gluten free desserts because they are way easier for me to make than traditional baked goods! You can’t really go wrong. Of course everything tastes earthier and not as rich, but what you do taste is the dense nutrition and nourishment.

A note from Sun Potion on Astragalus
Astragalus is a revered herb, used for over 2000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), to support health regeneration in a myriad of forms. It has been used to help fight fatigue and promote vitality, and to boost ones immune system and create more antibodies to help fight disease. It is an adaptogen, that may help ones body to deal with stress and anxiety, and provide an a boost of energy and revitalization.
In TCM, Astragalus is thought to support lung energy, or Lung Qi, as well as having beneficial effects on your blood circulation and heart health. Longevity, youthfulness, and even DNA repair have been thought  and studied to be potential benefits, since Astragalus has been shown to stimulate the body's production of special compounds which some studies have shown can help stimulate the production of an enzyme, Telomerase, which is our bodies natural warrior against DNA damage and aging. You can head here for more information, beautifully explained by Conscious Lifestyle Magazine, on more of the benefits of this extraordinary root.
