Its roots are used in TCM in which it’s been used as an adaptogen for thousands of years, it has tonifying and adaptogenic properties which benefit various systems and functions of the body. The perennial flowering plant grows from 16 to 36 inches tall and is native to the north and eastern regions of China. It’s also been traced back to Mongolia and Korea. Astragalus Roots are harvested from four-year-old plants and the roots are the only part of the plant that’s used medicinally. Only two of the over 2,000 species of Astragalus, Astragalus membranaceus and Astragalus mongholicus, are used medicinally. In addition, it is the root of Astragalus that is used to make tinctures. Some of the plant constituents have shown to be so potent that they’re now being used as the basis for different drugs. Specifically, the plant’s root is made into different food supplements, including liquid extracts, capsules, powders and teas. At Ancient Purity, we choose simple Ground Astragalus Root Powder for easy dose, bioavailabilty avoiding any fillers and an unnecessary capsule, so make a Longevity Smoothie. The Root also aids in promoting a healthy digestive tract and intestinal mucosa, in fact we could make a long list of effects. Perhaps what Astragalus has become famous for in natural health is that it's enriched with two saponins called Astragaloside IV & Cycloastragenol which can support the maintenance of healthy telomeres as well as cell health. Saponins help to activate telomerase, which are anti-ageing enzymes, to support the health of existing telomeres and normal cellular ageing. However, they are unable to produce new telomeres as the body ages, enter Astragalus.

Astragalus Root Powder Lowdown

To maintain wellness during the change of seasons, we herbalists eat whole foods and use herbs to promote a healthy immune system. Astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus) has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to promote wellness by strengthening the wei qi, the energy that circulates on the surface of the body.

Known as one of the most useful Chinese herbal tonics, this hearty root is ideal for someone who wants some extra immune support. Western herbalists call this root an adaptogen, which means it helps to bring the body back into balance and to ward off effects of every-day physiological stressors. The mild sweet taste works well alone, or with other medicinal herbs, prepared in soups or as a decoction.
