Benefits of Organic Astragalus Root May Include:

Astragalus root is best known for its powerful immune system modulating capabilities. It has been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, usually in combination with other herbs which are synergistic to strengthen the body defenses against disease and illness.  Astragalus is an adaptogen, meaning it helps to balance the system and protect the body.  As a tonic it defends against mental, physical, or emotional stress. Astragalus acts as an antioxidant which inhibits free radical production, reduces the incidence of colds and flu, lowers blood sugar, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the occurrence of upper respiratory infections.

Astragalus has been studied for its benefits to people whose immune systems have been compromised by medications, chemo, radiation, or other adverse medical consequences.  It has effects as an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and mild diuretic, which may be important to those with chronic inflammatory illnesses or those recovering from bacterial infections like e-coli, staff, c-diff, and MRSA or viral infections known and unknown in origin.  In studies, astragalus has been shown to speed recovery and extend life expectancy.

Recent research in China indicates that Astragalus offers antioxidant effects to reduce symptoms in people with severe forms of heart disease.  Because Astragalus has anti-diuretic, anti-clotting, and vaso dilating properties, it may help to reduce the symptoms of various heart ailments and benefit the circulatory system. At low-to-moderate doses, astragalus has few side effects, although it may interact with other herbs and prescription medications so be sure to check with your pharmacist for any contradictions of its use.  Chinese researchers are studying Astragalus compounds called astragalosides for its application in the treatment of congestive heart failure.

Astragalus Root is being studied for its ability to restore the immune system in seriously debilitated patients by increasing the production of the body’s T-cells (white blood cells), which attack the invading bacteria, virus and inflammation that causes disease.  Astragalus is important to defending the healthy cells from the unhealthy cells.  By this reaction, it activates Gene P53.  Gene P53 is a suppressing gene that halts and slows the multiplying of defective cells.  Gene P53 activates suppression against malignant growth factors, acting as a defender against genetically defective cells to slow or stop cell multiplication in malignant diseases.  Clinical trials conducted at the University of California, Berkeley, found Astragalus to increase the efficacy of chemotherapy and minimize the resulting toxicity from medication.  In these studies, Astragalus was combined with a form of platinum-based chemo to improve the survival of patients in treatment for advanced small cell lung cancer.  It has also been found to stimulate macrophage and NK cell (natural killer) activity and inhibiting T-helper cell type 2 cytokines.
