Ancient Purity presents one of the most powerful immune-building plants on the planet. Astragalus is a class of daptogenic herbs found in northern Asia that’s been used to treat fatigue and sickness for thousands of years. Some of the plant constituents have shown to be so potent that they’re now being used as the basis for different drugs. Astragalus is a plant within the Leguminosae (beans or legumes) family, with a very long history as an immune system booster and disease fighter. Its roots are in Traditional Chinese Medicine, in which it’s been used as an adaptogen for thousands of years. The perennial flowering plant, also called milkvetch root and Huang-qi, 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 4-year-old plants and 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 medicinallyAstragalus contains 3 components that allow the plant to have such a positive impact on human health: saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides, which are all active compounds contained in certain plants, including some fruits and vegetables.Saponins are known for their ability to lower cholesterol, improve the immune system. Flavanoids, also found in astragalus, provide health benefits through cell signaling. They show antioxidative qualities, control and scavenge of free radicals, Polysaccharides are known to have antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities, among other health benefits.

Astragalus is the Longevity Herb

Astragalus is uniquely healthy for your cellular well being because of its ability to protect your body’s telomeres from degradation. Telomeres are small pieces of DNA located at the edge of your chromosomes.  When your cells replicate telomeres help prevent your DNA from unravelling and keep it locked into place. They serve a similar function as the plastic caps on the edges of your shoelace. Whenever your cells replicate telomeres shorten a fraction.  After so many replications the stubby telomeres reach a critical point where they’re no longer usable and cells begin their programmed death, a process called “apoptosis.” Astragalus causes your body to increase its production of a substance called “telomerase” which is an enzyme that enables the production of more telomeres. In clinical studies, mice treated with extracts of Astragalus root had telomeres that were longer and degraded more slowly than a control group.

What’s more impressive is that despite these remarkable effects on cellular health there’s apparently no toxicity from astragalus if taken at reasonable dosages. Astragalus contains some polysaccharides which are just unique. The most notable compounds are called formononetin, calycosin and astragaloside IV, and have been shown to do the following things in your body: Reduces the amount of nitric oxide released from cells, which reduces inflammation Causes certain genes and metabolic pathways to be shut down which would otherwise cause blood and chemicals to flow to wounds Activates other genes and pathways which activates different immune cells. The patients were treated with a purified extract of Astragalus membranaceous in two 1 month cycles. After the first month 82% of patients reported feeling better and more energetic, and the following month 71% of the remaining group reported better feelings of energy, vitality, and youth. The study was a double-blind placebo-controlled study and fairly high quality.

Astragalus and Blood Sugar Balance

astragalus root

Astragalus seems to be a decent food for diabetics. For a reason that’s not entirely clear patients who take astragalus exhibit better blood sugar control.

The different polysaccharides protect against radical scavengers, and the benefits astragalus provides to cellular health seem to carry over in its ability to metabolise different nutrients.

Studies show its ability to relieve insulin resistance and treat diabetes naturally. The herb’s collection of saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides all are effective in treating and regulating type 1 & 2 diabetes. They’re able to increase insulin sensitivity, protect pancreatic beta cells (the cells in the pancreas that produce and release insulin) and also act as anti-inflammatories in areas related to diabetes symptoms.

Astragalus Gives

Fights Stress... Anxiety and chronic stress can cause adverse effects to our health. Hence, they need to be kept in check. Astragalus helps in curbing the stress level and promoting peace and calm in our mind and body. Those who suffer mood swings and constant nervous tension can benefit from this ancient herb.

Supports Restful Sleep... Insomnia, sleeplessness, interrupted sleep patterns can be cured by regular consumption of astragalus root. By improving overall health, metabolism and hormonal balance this root can help in delivering a peaceful sleep.

Kidney Support... Your kidneys are part of your immune system. They filter excess water and waste from the blood to be expelled in urine. Your kidneys also keep your body’s minerals and salts in balance and produce hormones that make red blood cells. Health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure can damage the kidneys. Performing a natural kidney cleanse is a great way to support normal kidney health. Some research shows that astragalus root extract may help increase the iron-rich protein, hemoglobin, in red blood cells and decrease proteinuria – – a harmful amount of protein in the urine. More research is needed, but studies do suggest that astragalus root provides nutrients that support normal kidney function.

Astragalus Keeps Giving

Cellular Health... The cells in your body are constantly growing and dividing. Sometimes the regulation of cells is disturbed, and the cell’s normal growth and behavior stop. Studies performed using extracts of astragalus root have revealed an increase in the cells lining the walls of your arteries, known as endothelial cells. Researchers continue to study how astragalus root may support healthy cell cycles for overall wellness

Seasonal Support... Most of us are prone to some allergy or the other which interferes with the normal functioning of our lives. Astragalus root extract has shown tremendous relief from the symptoms of seasonal allergies. While Astralagus is not a cure for Asthma or allergies - including this plant in the overall treatment is known to be of help.

Liver Health... Like the kidneys, your liver is part of your immune system. It detoxifies the blood and contains cells that can digest cellular debris and old, worn-out blood cells. When the liver accumulates toxins or becomes damaged, it affects your immune system and makes it difficult for your body to perform its most basic detoxification functions. A liver cleanse is a good approach to supporting normal liver health. Astragalus root can be a helpful supplement during a cleanse because its natural, immune-boosting qualities may help detox and protect the liver.

Vessel Health... Damaged arteries are often the result of high blood pressure. A buildup of plaque that contains fat, cholesterol, and calcium can severely affect cardiovascular health. Over time, plaque can cause calcification, which hardens the arteries and makes it difficult for blood to flow properly. The buildup of plaque also narrows the arteries and eventually causes the blockage that leads to serious health issues. The soothing qualities of astragalus root help break down arterial plaque and encourage balanced cholesterol levels.

Astragalus Supplements, Dosages, and Side Effects

Because of its widespread health benefits and benign nature, most people would benefit from having some astragalus in their diet.

However, due to its unique properties astragalus probably provides the most help to the following people: elderly people looking for a non-invasive way to fight the vagaries of old age people looking to reduce fatigue or reduce the collateral damage from severe chemotherapy or drug treatments anyone with a brittle immune system that’s sensitive to over the counter medication people looking for a natural/ homoeopathic way to help control blood sugar.
