What is astragalus?

Astragalus has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. It comes from a bean or legume.  Only the roots of the astragalus plants are used and these are harvested when plants are 4-years old. There are over 2000 species of astragalus, however, most astragalus supplements contain Astragalus membranaceus. It appears to work by stimulating the immune system and has antioxidant effects to help reduce free radical production.

3 components give this plant special qualities for human health:

• Flavonoids

Important for cell signalling. They also have antioxidant properties and help to prevent heart disease.

• Polysaccharides

These have anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties.

• Saponins

Help to reduce cholesterol and improve the immune system.
