Astragali Radix (AR) has been used for over 2000 years in China for
the enrichment of “Qi”. Hedysari Radix (HR), a herb having similar
chemical composition with AR, has been commonly used as a
substitute of AR in herbal decoction. In order to evaluate the
possible replacement of HR for AR in Chinese herbal decoction,
systematic comparison of AR and HR was done by chemical and
biological assessments. The water extract of AR contained higher
levels of calycosin, calycosin-glucoside, ononin, astragaloside III
and astragaloside IV, while higher amount of formononetin was found
in the HR extract. The estrogenic, erythropoetic and osteogenic
effects were compared between the water extracts of AR and HR, and
in all cases AR extract showed higher biological activities.
Danggui Buxue Tang (DBT) is a very common herbal decoction for
woman aliment, and which contains AR and Angelica Sinensis Radix.
