Astragalus

The astragalus root is a widely used traditional Chinese herbal medicine. Used predominantly as immune system support, it also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-viral properties.


Modern clinical trials are slowly catching up to this ancient herb, identifying hundreds of beneficial compounds within it. Studies have shown that astragalus can increase white blood cell activity thought to be responsible for the beneficial impact on the immune system.


Saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides are the primary active constituents. Studies have shown that the polysaccharides in astragalus can positively impact insulin activity, making it a useful tool when supporting those with type 2 diabetes.


Astragalus polysaccharides have been shown to be effective in inhibiting both tumour growth and metastases. It therefore has a potential role in cancer prevention.


Clinical trials are now supporting the traditional use of astragalus in kidney disease. Research has demonstrated promising effects in reducing proteinuria and increasing haemoglobin and serum albumin.


Astragalus is widely available alone and often found in complexes with other herbal compounds such as elderberry and garlic, which work synergistically to support the immune system.
