EXCELLENT QUALITY DIAGONAL SLICED ASTRAGALUS!!
Astragalus has been recognized for over 2,000 years in the Traditional Chinese Medical System as one of the most potent
“Chi tonic herbs” available.
It is not actually an “herb”, however, but the woody root of the Astragalus membranaceus plant species that is responsible for its renowned energy building properties.
Astragalus is classified as a major tonic herb within the Chinese herbal system.
These types of herbs are not medicinal in nature, in that they do not correct specific ailments, but are used in a tonifying fashion. They are considered extremely healthy foods and astragalus, as such, offers tremendous value as a naturally stimulating energizer and adaptogen.
In fact, astragalus root is probably most well known in the Western world.
Some of the active constituents that make this possible are the triterpenoid saponins called astragalosides, like the all popular “astragaloside IV.”
Additional components include other immuno-stimulating polysaccharides, like astragalus-specific glucans and hetero glycans as well as flavonoids and trace minerals such as selenium.
