Astragalus Root Dosage

Those who take Astragalus Root with food and meals, especially high-protein meals and shakes, will receive the best results.

There are four main ways to take Astragalus Root:

 Astragalus Root Tea Soup

1. Tea Soup

Use cut and sift, sliced lengthwise, and/or crushed roots to make Astragalus Root tea. Cooked on the stove top at a high temperature, approx. 205*F, for at least one hour.

 Astragalus Root Spirits

2. Spirits

Several pieces of cut, sliced and/or crushed Astragalus Root is added to a bottle of spirits and placed in a cool dark place. It is then shaken several times a week for over a month before drinking.

 Astragalus Root Powder

3. Powder

Fresh powder or encapsulated, taken either directly in the mouth or in a small 2-4 oz cup of lukewarm water, gently whisked for a few seconds.

 Astragalus Root Liquid

4. Liquid

Liquids may be taken sub-lingually for maximum absorption or added to a small amount of cool water and slowly sipped so that the extract is easier to take.

How to take Astragalus Root

Astragalus Root is a digestive energy tonic so that it is best taken with meals and other supplements to increase absorption of nutrition. Probiotics will help the stomach absorb many of the difficult-to-digest constituents.

Each dosage is different, depending on the supplement preparation and absorption methods:

  1. Tea Soup = 5 – 18 grams
    Brews a yellowish broth that is taken daily with meals for all benefits. Sweet, grassy, and pleasant tasting. Prolonged heating breaks cell walls and activates polysaccharides and prepares them for absorption.
  1. Spirits = 1 ounce 1-3 times a day taken as a shot
    Alcohol extraction preserves a low-to-moderate potency go-to supplement for digestive benefits; taken during meals to increase assimilation of protein foods and derive more stamina benefit.
  1. Powder = 2,000 – 6,000 milligrams
    An easy way to take Astragalus, but because of the high amount of difficult-to-digest constituents which may cause digestive upset, powder is added directly to boiled hot water and quickly whisked, let set 5-10 minutes. Do not drink the powder.
  1. Liquid = 1,000 – 3,000 milligrams
    Most potent and full-spectrum of benefits while initiating immediate effects; tincture by-passes the digestive system and delivers a portion of the active preserved constituents directly into bloodstream.

 Astragalus Time Concept

Benefits with tonics take time; taking enough consistently rewards health.
