Benefits of Astragalus Root
Astragalus is an important “Chi tonifying” adaptogenic herb that is famed for its powerful energizing and strengthening effects.
As an immune tonic, Astragalus can help stimulate the production of T-cells, NK cells, macrophages, immunoglobulin, interferon, and other important functions the body uses to effectively combat nasty bugs and things that compromise a healthy functioning body.
Astragalus contains unique polysaccharides and saponin fractions (such as Astragaloside IV) that have shown strong liver protective immune enhancing qualities. The flavonoid and saponin content in Astragalus provides strong antioxidant activity. These extremely potent compounds make Astragalus one of the greatest longevity promoting tonic herbs.
