ASTRAGALUS (astragalus membraneceus)

Native to China, astragalus has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. It is usually used in combinations with other herbs to support and enhance the immune system. Used for chronic hepatitis, cancer, colds upper respiratory infections, and heart disease.

There is some preliminary evidence to suggest that astragalus, either alone or in combination with other herbs, may have potential benefits for the immune system, heart, and liver, and as an aid in therapy for cancer.

 

The root of the astragalus plant is typically used in soups, teas, extracts, or capsules. Astragalus is generally used with other herbs, such as ginseng, angelica, and licorice.
