Astragalus Extract

Astragalus Extract:  Astragalus is one of the most popular tonics in the Orient. Studies performed at the University of Houston shows that Astragalus improves immunity functions by increasing T-cell counts, antibodies IgA and IgG, but its range of benefits is much larger. These include increased production of interferon and leukocytes. Astragalus also has polysaccharides that bind to cholesterol and helps the body fight invaders while increasing the cleansing rate of toxins. It enhances spleen and lung function and supports peripheral circulation while lowering blood pressure and balancing blood sugar levels. Astragalus reduces autoimmune response such as that caused my rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. It also has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and adaptogenic effects. Most of its immune enhancing effects are due to polysaccharides, a group of complex sugars that are responsible for initiating the immune response. Polysaccharides work with other key components to strengthen and build the immune system.
