Astragalus Herb

Native to northern China, this herb has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries.

This is an important herb for strengthening the immune system.

The root works best to reinvigorate the immune system before disease occurs and it is widely thought best to discontinue once illness has set in.

Astragalus is a classic energy tonic comparable with ginseng.

Astragalus has also been used traditionally to normalize heart and kidney function, treat bladder infections, burns, cancer, and colds.

Other traditional uses include the treatment of lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and infertility.

This herb contains calcium, choline, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium and zinc.

The roots are used in capsules, liquid extracts, teas and tinctures.

CAUTIONS: People receiving immunosuppresive therapy, or those with organ transplants should use this herb with caution.
