Wildcrafted Astragalus Tonic Herb 50g by TEELIXIR
Astragalus root is considered one of the most important herbal tonics in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years and is highly valued for its ability to strenghen the primary energy of the body, the immune system, and all metabolic, respiratory, and eliminative functions. Astragalus is an important “Chi tonifying” and adaptogenic herb that is famed for its powerful energising and strengthening effects. It has traditionally been called "The Great Protector" for its ability to function as an immune stimulator that supports and enhances the body’s defence system. Astragalus increases the number of stem cells in bone marrow and lymph tissue and encourages their development into active immune cells. Astragalus can help stimulate the production of T-cells, NK cells, macrophages, immunoglobulin, interferon, and other important functions the body uses to effectively ward off viruses and bacteria. Astragalus has the important effect of increasing “upright Chi” in the body which helps maintain good posture and prevents the prolapse of organs due to illness, chronic fatigue, and extreme exhaustion. This rejuvenating quality is essential to a long healthy life. Astragalus contains unique polysaccharides and saponin fractions that have shown strong liver protective qualities. The flavonoid and saponin content in Astragalus provides strong antioxidant activity, and is many times more potent than vitamin E. Astragalus is an effective blood tonic, can help reduce inflammation, and effectively balance the overall systems of the body.
Ingredients: Astragalus Root Dual-Extract 10:1*
* Our Astragalus root is sourced from the pristine high altitude mountain ranges of China, far from any industrial pollution. Teelixir Astragalus undergoes a process of dual-extraction using water and organic ethanol. Organic ethanol is used to extract the adaptogenic terpenes while the hot water extracts the immune-modulating compounds. This is to ensure that we extract the full-spectrum of healing compounds, both the water soluble and oil soluble constituents from the Astragalus root. This product is completely safe for children. Less than 100 ppm of the organic ethanol remains in the extract.
