Astragalus membranaceous has been around in Chinese medicine for two thousand years. It is known as ‘haung qi‘, or chi, because it boosts natural body energy levels. Astragalus is taken from the root of a perennial plant (Astragalus membranaceous) needing four to seven years to mature before the root is harvested in early spring. The root is not unlike a garlic bulb. Traditionally, this herb is known to boost the immune system and has benefits in cardiovascular, sugar control and various infections.
Its wide usage in China as an immune system booster brought interest from Europe, Japan and America. Original Chinese studies dated back to 1981, when a study by Houetal showed that taken orally induced greater quantities of interferon and leukocytes in the blood stream.
Astragalus membranaceus, the active ingredient in Provita Nutrition & Health Astragalus 9000™, is primarily used in western medicine to strengthen the immune system function. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used as anti viral and for augmenting the qi (vital energy).
Astragalus is also an antioxidant and has been shown to promote cell proliferation and survival. It inhibits free radical production, increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) and decreases lipid peroxidation.
Astragalus is also called an adaptogen, meaning it helps protect the body from physical, mental, or emotional tension. It is thought to improve the
immune response by potentiating the effects of interferon and it has been confirmed to enhance the immune system in vitro and in vivo investigations.
