Astragalus is an herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. It has many purported health benefits including immune-boosting, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory effects. Astragalus may improve your immune system and symptoms of chronic fatigue and seasonal allergies. Taken at night, Astragalus helps promote healthy sleep patterns. When taken during the day, it can help alleviate stress.
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!
