Amino Z Astragalus 1kg

Having been used in traditional Chinese medicine for many centuries before it became known to the west, you can bet your last dollar that Astragalus is very useful.

The roots of the plant are responsible for the majority of its therapeutic benefit, which, being an adaptogenic herb, include many stress reducing and immune boosting properties. Wondering what the most noteworthy benefits of consuming Astragalus are? Then get ready to find out now.

May Help Reduce Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is a normal result of biological processes, but may sometimes be accelerated as a result of physical stressors. Case in point, exercise is well known increase the rate of oxidative stress on the body via the production of reactive oxygen species.

These ROS are highly damaging to cells they come in contact with, inadvertently impacting immune function as well. Astragalus can help reduce the impact of oxidative stress on cells, owing particularly to the high polysaccharide content of the herb[i]. The free radical scavenging activity of Astragalus can therefore help protect cells from damage.

May Help Prevent Bacterial And Viral Infections

Although there is very limited human data concerning the use of Astragalus to prevent infections, studies conducted on rodents has proven very promising in this regard. It is believed to exert these actions by increasing the production of compounds known as interferons[ii], which play a large part in mitigating the effects of bacterial and viral infections.

An increase in blood interferon levels is generally associated with favourable prognosis and better outcomes.

If this effect holds true in humans, it could mean a decreased likelihood of developing seasonal cold or flu as well as other viral or bacterial infections.

May Increase Immune Response

An efficient immune system is necessary for dealing with the many microbial threats you face with on a daily basis. There is evidence that Astragalus may help enhance the recruitment and migration of macrophage[iii] immune cells to the parts of the body where it is urgently needed. This, in turn means that there is a reduced likelihood of developing an infection.

In Summary

There is a wide recommended dosage range depending on the specific use of Astragalus, but the most effective commercial supplements you can find contain between 400 to 1000 mg per pill. Consume 1 to 2 capsules daily or as advised on the supplement label.
