With its golden roots and thousands of years of use, Astragalus is considered one of the most important herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its wide range of active constituents include immune supporting and antioxidant-rich polysaccharides, more than 40 saponins, and flavanoids.

A recent UCLA study found that Astragalus extract can make an old immune system function like it's years or decades younger by boosting both the number and activity of your T cells -- in just 72 hours!

Ongoing research demonstrates that Astragalus not only supports your immune system, but also supports energy levels, optimizes your biological age, and can be helpful for seasonal allergies. Taken at night, Astragalus helps promote healthy sleep patterns. When taken during the day, it can help alleviate stress.

But wait...there's more.

Anti-inflammatory: Many studies show that thanks to its saponins and polysaccharides, Astragalus can reduce inflammatory response in connection to a number of illnesses and conditions

Cardiovascular system protection: The flavonoids present in Astragalus are antioxidants that help prevent plaque buildup in arteries and narrowing of vessel walls by protecting the inner wall of the vessel.

Diabetes regulation/prevention: Astragalus has been studied progressively as an antidiabetic. Studies show its ability to relieve insulin resistance and treat diabetes naturally. 

Research shows those with autoimmune deficiencies do well with Astragalus to support the immune system when not in a strong flare-up. Some folks with autoimmune deficiencies cannot tolerate Elderberry or Echinacea, hence the need for Astragalus!

Though astragalus is safe for most people, the following people should avoid it:
  • Pregnant and breastfeeding women: There’s currently not enough research to demonstrate that Astragalus is safe while pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Those taking immunosuppressant drugs: Astragalus may decrease the effects of immunosuppressant drugs.
  • Astragalus may also have effects on blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Therefore, use this herb with caution if you have diabetes or issues with your blood pressure.

The following drug interactions can occur with Astragalus:
  • Cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar): This drug is used to suppress the immune system. Using Astragalus will decrease the effectiveness of this drug.
  • Lithium: Astragalus can affect how the body reduces lithium levels because of its diuretic qualities. Taking Astragalus with lithium can lead to unsafe levels of lithium in the body. Speak with a medical professional before combining Astragalus with lithium, as a dosage change might be required.
  • Immunosuppressants: Drugs that suppress the immune system are commonly used to help prevent rejection in transplant patients and accept the new organ or tissue. Because of Astragalus’ immune system boosting capabilities, it decreases the effectiveness of these drugs. Some of these drugs include: azathioprine (Imuran), basiliximab (Simulect), cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune), daclizumab (Zenapax), muromonab-CD3 (OKT3, Orthoclone OKT3), mycophenolate (CellCept), tacrolimus (FK506, Prograf), sirolimus (Rapamune), prednisone (Deltasone, Orasone), corticosteroids (glucocorticoids) and others.
  • Other Drugs: acyclovir, interleukin, interferon
