Category - Astragalus Extract [Astragalus membranaceus]

Astragalus membranaceus has been traditionally used to treat loss of strength, some chronic illnesses and to increase the overall vitality of the system and is often used in conjunction with some other herbs, such as ginseng, angelica, and licorice. Preliminary studies are suggesting health benefits of astragalus especially for the immune system, heart and liver, however, there is limited evidence for using astragalus for any health condition and there is also lack of high-quality clinical trials. Despite the lack of clinical trials on astragalus, some human studies do indicate stimulation of activity of immune cells in clinical populations.
