Astragalus root is an important “Qi tonifying” adaptogen famed for its energizing and strengthening effects to balance all systems in the body. Traditionally known as "The Great Protector," Astragalus is highly valued as an immune tonic to support and enhance the body’s innate and adaptive immune system.
Astragalus membranaceus is considered one of the most important herbal tonics in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years and is highly valued for its ability to strengthen the primary energy of the body. Astragalus root extract is an excellent tonic for athletes and performers for increasing physical energy, strength and endurance.
Astragalus is also a superb lung tonic. It supports the Lung Qi which helps assist and maintain the respiratory tract and mucous membranes integrity, fighting off invading airborne pathogens.
Astragalus root has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine for many health benefits, mainly to enhance energy production and strengthen the immune system.
Studies show Astragalus root contains immune-stimulating polysaccharides; astragalans 1, 2, 3 and glucoronic acid that work to greatly enhance immune function. These unique polysaccharides have the ability to increase T-cell proliferation and increase cytokine activity within T-cells. Astragalus root activates toll-like receptor signaling pathways (TLR’s); proteins that are located on the membranes of macrophage and dendritic cells that detect invading pathogens. This activation upgrades the body’s ability to launch an enhanced immune system response.
