Astragalus Powder


Astragalus root is one of superior tonic herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. The main constituents of the root are saponins, polysaccharides, isoflavonoids, and free amino acids.

Of notable interest are isolated compounds only found in astragalus called Astragalosides – astragaloside IV being the most powerful. Astragalus is known as a potent immune boosting herb and disease fighter. It is an immunostimulant that can increase white blood cell count and stimulate the production of antibodies, this builds up bodily resistance to viruses and bacteria.

Astragalus’ flavonoids and astragaloside IV increase cell-mediated immunity which increases the number of T- helper cells, and stimulates macrophage and natural killer cell activity – thus enhancing both cellular and humoral immune responses.
