Description
Astra 8® Immune Tonic boosts your defences against recurrent colds, flu and sore throats, and helps you bounce back from these minor infections.

Features and benefits

  • High potency immune-boosting formula combining herbs traditionally used in Chinese medicine to promote a healthy immune system and build resistance against minor infections.
  • May assist in the management of recurrent upper respiratory tract infections, including colds, flu and sore throat.
  • Suitable for use throughout winter by adults and children over 2 years old who are prone to recurrent sore throats and colds and flu
  • When taken after colds and flu, Astra 8® Immune Tonic may support recovery, enhance energy and vitality, reduce muscle aches, and help rebuild resistance against further minor infections (Taking Cough Lung Tonic at the same time may provide additional benefit when coughing is present).
  • Also increases resistance to stress and improves stamina, so is ideal to take when feeling run down.

How it works

In Chinese medicine, your Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) is the vital energy or life force that fuels your daily activities, and Defensive Qi is a specific form of Qi responsible for maintaining your resistance against disease. According to this philosophy, a deficiency or imbalance of Defensive Qi may cause you to feel run down, repeatedly catch minor respiratory infections such as colds or flu, or lead to symptoms of sore throat, runny nose, fatigue or poor concentration.

Astra 8® Immune Tonic combines eight powerful herbal medicines traditionally used to restore and maintain Qi, thus supporting your resistance against minor infections.

Astragalus is a warming herb that restores Qi and supports Lung Qi. Its traditional use as a supportive remedy for those prone to colds is supported by scientific studies showing that it modulates key immune system cells.

Other herbs in Astra 8® Immune Tonic that support Qi and immune health include:

  • Schisandra, traditionally considered particularly beneficial for the Lung organ-meridian (which is responsible for the production and distribution of Defensive Qi)
  • Reishi mushroom (also known as Ganoderma), which is traditionally taken to relieve weakness and fatigue, improve stamina, and help reduce susceptibility to recurrent upper respiratory infections
  • Siberian ginseng, which may have a modulating effect on key types of immune cells involved in fighting minor infection, while also helping to improve the body’s ability to adapt to stress

For 3 weeks I had a very nasty virus infection that caused uncontrollable coughing. Within 24 hours of taking Fusion Cough Lung Tonic the coughing had nearly disappeared. After the infection had cleared, I revisited my health shop looking for something to help with the weakness it had left me with. I purchased Fusion Astra 8. Again within 24 hours I was feeling much better and more energetic . I will continue to take this product to build my immune system against further winter ills. I am 75 years old and have taken a lot of remedies over the years – but have never had such quick and complete alleviation of symptoms. I will certainly turn to Fusion for any future needs.

I found this product to be very effective. I have been using it for about 3-4 months.

This is an outstanding product. That dreaded feeling when I'm coming down with something is gone if I take these pills as soon as I feel unwell. I've given them to other people in my family who all report the same results. Amazing. I will never be without them. It must be noted that they don't work once symptoms take hold. I found this out when I was on holiday and didn't have the pills with me. Regards

Alison from NT

They've been a godsend: After months of recurring sinus infections and colds, and after trying every remedy known to man, my local health food store recommended Astra 8 Immune Tonic. I was amazed by the results. It held cold and sinus symptoms at bay all winter. I can't recommend Astra 8 enough for people who are struggling with a low immune system. Best, Ingrid.

This product has been a game changer for me - no longer do I live in fear of people coughing and spluttering all over me during my work day and I rest easy knowing that the Astra 8 Immune Tonic has got my back.

I started using Fusion Astra 8 Immune Tonic last year in July. The product helped me immensely with my immune system recovery and fatigue . I am very dubious when it comes to vitamins and supplements but this product really worked for me and I have recommended it to a few friends already.
