Astragalus is an herb that has been popular in Chinese medicine for the past several hundered years. It is known as an adaptogen, and works well when blended with other herbs such as Peppermint or Spearmint, due to its strong flavor.
Those who frequently fall victim to colds and respiratory infections are prime candidates for Astragalus Root. Astragalus contains anti-viral properties that help to stimulate the immune system and support healthy adrenals, respiratory system, and cardiovascular system.
Astragalus root is most popular for stimulating the immune system by increasing the activity of the white blood cell count which helps fight off any potential or present infection. It guards against colds, viruses, and respiratory infections. Astragalus also boosts energy levels, increases stamina and is safe for long term use; making it ideal for chronic fatigue, or for those who just need a little boost of energy.
