Astragalus is an herb of utmost importance for its adaptogenic and immune-modulating properties. A classic tonic, it has been a mainstay of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for many centuries. These days, because of the scientific research that has corroborated its effectiveness, it has been adopted widely as a remedy in the West as well.

Astragalus is currently used as an immune stimulant and thought to be helpful for the common cold. Research into its use as an adjunctive therapy for cancer patients, most notably to reduce the side effects of conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, is just beginning.

Herbal researcher, Peter Holmes gives a good overview of the therapeutic dynamics of this herb: "Astragalus root has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism, thereby making more energy available on cellular and individual levels.... Astragalus root's generous saponin content indicates a rejuvenating action on red blood cells and increased nutrient absorption by the intestines. This includes enhanced calcium and silicon utilization. Moreover, the root also contains generous amounts of trace minerals, including the important trace elements selenium and molybdenum, which it collects from the soil and stores. Through these twin dynamics, Astragalus will increase overall vitality, energy..."

The conclusion drawn by most Western herbalists is that astragalus is an ideal remedy for anyone who might be immunocompromised. It strengthens many functions of the immune system, helps protect the liver from damage, and may have valuable anticancer effects.

Those experiencing chronically compromised immune function, weakness, and a lack of vitality of any kind, whether from infection or from autoimmune causes, will benefit from this extraordinary tincture, which is also a key part of our Deep Immune® formula.
