About Astragalus Extract

Astragalus Extract is created by Pine Mountain and is one of the most highly regarded products among all Chinese herbal formulas. Some of its uses relate to the support of the muscles, organs, immune system, and digestive system. However, Astragalus Extract is particularly efficient when the production and circulation of Qi is required. Having excellent blood tonic properties, it is useful for individuals that want to either maintain a high Qi level of tonify their Qi.

How Astragalus Extract Works

Astragalus Extract concentrates the power of two giants in Traditional Chinese Medicine and classical tonic formulations – Astragalus and Codonopsis. Briefly, Codonopsis root is a potent adaptogenic that effectively:

As for Astragalus or Huang Qi, it comes with a wealth of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and immune-boosting effects. It is believed that Astragalus can help prolong life and is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat a plethora of ailments, including the common cold, allergies, and fatigue. Astragalus is also used against conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. In detail, Astragalus is found to:

  • Increase the production of white blood cells – These are part of the immune system, and their role is to help prevent illness. It has been evidenced that white blood cells can kill viruses and bacteria.
  • Improve the function of the heart – Astragalus is thought to widen the blood vessels, thus giving the heart the capacity to pump more blood from it. This is particularly beneficial in individuals with certain heart conditions. Some studies have also shown that Astragalus can lower the symptoms of an inflammatory heart condition called myocarditis.
  • Help control glucose levels – The active compounds in the herb can reduce the levels of blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes while improving sugar metabolism.
  • Improves kidney function – The herb enhances blood flow and improve proteinuria (a condition in which urine contains abnormal amounts of protein – a telltale sign of malfunctioning kidneys) as a means to support the health of the kidney. It may also reduce the risk of infection in individuals with reduced function of the kidney.

Astragalus is also believed to help improve chronic fatigue-related symptoms, better the symptoms of seasonal allergy and promote apoptosis in several cancer cell types. Therefore, one can easily understand why the combination of Codonopsis and Astragalus is also referred to as the King of Combinations

Understanding the Crucial Role of Qi

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi or Chi is the force that binds everything together in the universe. It is a vital life force that contains both the vital energy and fluids that flow throughout the human body and whatever we take in (food, water, and air). An imbalance of Qi can lead to emotional, mental, or physical ailment, the symptoms of which vary based on whether we have Qi excess or Qi deficiency. Lack of sleep, absence of physical things necessary for the body to function properly (i.e., fresh air and clean water), negative emotions, lack of love and mental stimulation, stress, lack of physical activity, and overeating are some of the causes behind Qi falling out of balance.

To realize the significance of Qi balance, let’s look at some health benefits that derive from its harmonious flow:

  • Ensures the healthy function of all organs.
  • Promotes the normal growth and development.
  • Regulates the body temperature so that all functions occur normally.
  • Helps the body defend against environmental factors, pathogens, and other external elements that can cause illness.
  • Encourages the healthy flow of body organs’ fluid.
  • Controls the blood flow within the vessels.
  • Transforms air and nutrition into the blood and other subsets.
  • Adjusts saliva, sweat, and other body fluids so that only the proper amount leaves the human body.

Important Notes:

  • The suggested use is 2 tablets twice or three times a day unless your healthcare practitioner directs otherwise.
  • Always consult your healthcare practitioner before taking any dietary or nutritional supplement, including Astragalus Extract, especially if you are pregnant or nursing.
  • Talk to your doctor before using Astragalus Extract if you have an autoimmune disease (i.e., rheumatoid arthritis) or are taking immunosuppressant medications. Astragalus might boost the immune system activity and reduce the effects of the immunosuppressant drugs.
