In traditional Asian medicine, Astragalus is a star component of many classic herbal formulations. It’s a powerhouse for the immune system but also supports numerous internal organs including the spleen, liver, lungs, respiratory system, circulatory system and urinary system. It is considered an overall body tonic.
Astragalus is used in our Defense Boost WellTeaing herbal blend because of its amazing immune-stimulating effects as well as for its ability to facilitate the production of white blood cells. Specifically, it boosts T-Cell 1 & 2 production, which are known to not only stimulate the immune response but also the natural production of antibodies and antigens that are a crucial part of the immune response. Astragalus has been shown to help patients receiving chemo therapies to recover more quickly and extend the longevity and quality of their lives.
Having adaptogenic qualities makes astragalus a versatile herb to use for a variety of issues.
If you are feeling constantly fatigued, stressed out, chronically ill, or need immune support, astragalus is an ancient treasure that can be a star in your lineup for longevity and a healthy lifestyle.
