Do you know about astragalus?
If not, you should, because astragalus root is one of the most powerful immune-building plants on the planet.
As you can probably gather, not all plants and herbs are made equal. Some have far more beneficial properties than others, and when it comes to health, healing and longevity not many come close to the powers that this root provides.
Astragalus (also known as Astragalus membranaceus and huang qiin Chinese) has for over 2000 years been one of the 50 super Chinese tonic herbs that are most frequently used in the Traditional Chinese Medicine pharmacopeia due to its outstanding ability to restore health on virtually every level – mentally, emotionally, physically, energetically and spiritually.
It is one of the few herbs mentioned in multiple ancient Chinese medical texts as a “Heaven Class” premier herbal medicine for restoring health and rejuvenating the body and mind at the deepest levels.
It is also one of the few herbs that is lauded in both ancient medicines and Pharmacology.
According to the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center at Penn State, astragalus is an adaptogen that has the ability to help the body deal with physical, emotional or mental stress. It is also famous for aiding the body in lowering the risk for infections and other diseases.
But just what exactly makes it such a phenomenal tonic that has been sought by emperors and medicine men alike for thousands of years?
Various studies have shown that the astragalus plant contains anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.
Here are other astragalus root benefits you should know about:
1. Promotes Longevity, Reverses Ageing and Enhances DNA Repair
2. Boosts Immunity and Helps to Fight Bacteria, Viruses and More
3. Reduces Stress and Promotes Organic Energy and Vitality
4. Supports the Health of the Heart, Lungs and Blood

Truly remarkable right?
So the only question to ask is if you aren’t using astragalus already, then why not?
But which form of astragalus should you take?
Well, like all herbal products, organic, wild-harvested and wildcrafted Astragalus supplements are typically the best. As a native herb to China and Asia, much of the world’s supply originates in these regions so it is important to look for quality suppliers who don’t cut corners.
While pills work equally well, I recommend taking Astragalus in liquid, powder or tea form so that you can adjust the dosage to meet your needs.
Astragalus tastes fairly good as herbs go, and as such, it is popular in tea form as well. For maximum longevity-boosting effects, it is best to use a high-potency Astragalus extract, which typically contains more of the telomerase-stimulating compounds.
I like this liquid extract from Natures Answer which you can find by clicking this link. Liquid extracts are absorbed faster than tablets or capsules. Also, Natures Answer’s products are Holistically Balanced which.guarantees that the constituents of the extract are in the same ratios as in the plant.
Whatever you choose, make sure to get Astragalus root in your diet.
