Product ID: AST1
Astragalus is the chief conductor of all tonic herbs.
It strengthens the digestive track, augments the spleen and directs our nutrition to work better while boosting assimilation of all other tonics and supplements.
From the enhancement of nutrient intake, by Astragalus, we are better able to stabilize energy levels and mobilize protective immune function.
And because Astragalus is safe and easy to take, it can be used every day, by both adults and children; thus, ensuring that we gain the effects and benefits of it that comes from dedicated supplementation.
Astragalus is about fatigue resistance.
It is very much a preventative tonic for the immune system that; can be subtle but is noticeable.
Over the time we take it, we will have less weakness, apathy and lethargy.
Astragalus strengthens the immune function of the entire body.
Because Astragalus contains long chain harmless sugars within its repertoire, known as polysaccharides, it promotes proper immune function.
The body becomes more efficient at fortifying itself during the oxidative effects of energy production and defending against contamination, free radicals, and other toxins.
As the leader of all tonics, Astragalus is a comprehensive holistic tonic that raises the entire mind body system higher in vital energy.
It allows the body and mind to be stimulated for activity and productivity so that we may derive more satisfaction and joy. When appropriate for rest, it conserves energy for regeneration and benefits recovery.
Astragalus gets much of its efficacy from increasing intestinal absorption of nutrition which directly affects protein assimilation. Greater amounts of circulating protein, in the form of peptides, harmonize optimal blood pressure in the vascular system for a more efficient heart and stronger circulatory system.
Better blood flow and pressure directly supports better assimilation of nutrients to feed cells, organs, glands and the brain and nervous system. Greater circulating peptides accelerate cellular enzyme metabolism. And the enzymes derived from peptides, containing nutrient cofactors, are responsible for all metabolic processes in the body, including energy, regeneration and growth.
Better protein metabolism and more efficient circulation means stronger muscles, joints and nerves and enhanced recovery of these tissues. Classical Chinese Herbalism teaches that taking Astragalus helps us to stand more upright and with less slouching. Greater strength of the muscles and joints helps us to stand upright without fatigue and reduces the associated brain fog due to poor circulation, thereby enhancing cognitive endurance.
Astragalus root has a pleasant sweet earthy taste that can be easily taken straight or added to juices and smoothies for more depth of flavor.
When we learn to take Astragalus daily as a foundational tonic we have initiated ourselves as a tonic herbalist. We can take more tonics and make them work better, but to do this, we must pay attention to the following:
High Quality Protein: Astragalus mainly works by boosting protein metabolism and will not work effectively if a diet is missing enough high-quality proteins. Astragalus is a daily dietary tonic, which can easily be mixed with meals. Ginger is known to help Astragalus digest and absorb more protein in the gut.
Antioxidants: Astragalus is a great tonic for work stamina and easily combines with stimulants like coffee and tea and reduces their undesirable effects. Other antioxidant tonic-berries like Goji, Schisandra, and Mulberries are also of great benefit. Herbal teas like licorice, chamomile, and mint are excellent choices too; as they aid digestion.
Vitamin and Minerals: It is recommended to take a full-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplements with Astragalus, as these supplements will be enhanced by better absorption and assimilation. Selenium is an essential mineral for protein, peptide and enzyme metabolism and is a highly effective cofactor in enzyme antioxidant activity.
