The use of Astragalus dates back to the 5th century where it was described as a superior herb due to its tonic action. This supreme group of herbs was described as "rulers … they control the maintenance of life and correspond to heaven." Of this group of tonic herbs, Astragalus has earned the highest regard and is known as the "yellow leader." Currently, Astragalus is listed in the Traditional Medicine Guides (Pharmacopoeia) of China and Japan. Western herbalists began using Astragalus in the 1800’s as a tonic. It became more popular in the 1980’s as an important aid in strengthening the natural defence system of the body
Astragalus is a class of herbs found in northern Asia that’s been used to treat fatigue and sickness for thousands of years. Astragalus root is best known for its powerful immune system boosting capabilities. It has been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, often in combination with other herbs, to strengthen the body against disease. Astragalus is an adaptogen, meaning it helps protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress. It has antioxidant effects that naturally inhibit free radical production. Astragalus may be beneficial for reducing the occurrence of colds and upper respiratory infections and help to lower both blood sugar and blood pressure.
Astragalus has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. It can also be used for wounds. In the United States, researchers have investigated astragalus as a possible treatment for people whose immune systems have been compromised by chemotherapy or radiation. In these studies, astragalus supplements have been shown to speed recovery and extend life expectancy.
Astragalus may also offer antioxidant benefits to people with severe forms of heart disease, relieving symptoms and improving heart function. At low-to-moderate doses, astragalus has few side effects, although it may interact with other herbs and prescription medications. Astragalus may also have mild diuretic (rids the body of excess fluid) activity.
The herb has been found to contain an anti-clotting agent and has vaso-dilating properties, helping to improve circulation.
Astragalus Root is said to help strengthen and restore normal immune function in seriously debilitated patients. Many modern researchers claim that the herb appears to increase the production of the body’s T-cells (white blood cells), which attack the invaders that cause disease, and seems to protect healthy cells while defending against unhealthy cells. The herb also activates the important malignant growth suppressing gene p53 that prevents defective cells from multiplying. Gene p53 acts as a "molecular patrolman" that ensures that genetically defective cells do not multiply and may reduce the risk of malignant diseases.
Astragalus Helps Us To Stops Aging
Astragalus is uniquely healthy for your cellular health 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 wee bit. 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.”
The gradual shortening of telomeres is an important component of ageing and different types of cancer.
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.
1. It causes your body to produce more telomeres, a part of your DNA that protects chromosomes from degradation
2. It contains a unique class of polysaccharides which are very biologically active
3. It improves the rate of replication of immune cells called macrophages
These three properties are very unique to astragalus, and are one of the reasons it is such a wonderful medicinal herb.
