Astragalus Supplement Description

Astragalus root is a prime 'qi' tonic in the Chinese Classical herbalism that is widely used, as a singular tonic and in formulation, to vitalize bodily energies, mobilize protective systems, and increase adaptogenic stress-resistance. Learning to use astragalus is an initiatory step to becoming a tonic herbalist who learns the development of greater health and wellness, because astragalus root has the ability to drive the 'true qi' derived from food, air, water and other supplements holistically throughout all the channels of the body.*

Astragalus is the Chief Conductor of All Tonic Herbs.

It is the main energy tonic of all adaptogenic herbs, it boosts the assimilation of all other tonics and supplements. It also strengthens the lungs and digestive track, augments or adds to the spleen and directs our nutrition to work better for improved health, wellness, and healthy lifestyles.*

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.

It is also safe and easy to take and can be used everyday by both adults and children; thus, ensuring that we gain the benefits of astragalus that comes from dedicated supplementation.*

Astragalus Fights Fatigue!*

Astragalus stabilizes energy levels by strengthening blood circulation throughout the body and mobilizing protective immune function by benefiting lymphatic circulation:* 

  • The circulation of blood promotes healthy energy that is utilized by all the body's organs, including the brain and stomach.*
  • The circulation of lymph promotes immune system function by assisting the natural cleansing of body tissues.*

Consistent use over time will make our bodies strong, lively, and fighting fit!*

Astragalus Strengthens Immune Function of the Entire Body.*

It contains long chain harmless sugars called polysaccharides that promote active immune function.*

Our bodies become more efficient at fortifying themselves during times of energetic activity which increases oxidation and its effects, such as free-radicals, while also defending against contamination and other toxins.*

Astragalus is therefore a comprehensive and holistic tonic that raises the entire mind body system into a higher vibrational energy state.*

It creates an active and productive body-mind so that more satisfaction and joy from life is experienced.* And during rest, it conserves energy for bodily and cellular regeneration and the recovery of our tired selves.*

Astragalus’s efficacy comes from increasing the intestinal absorption of nutrition that directly affects protein assimilation.* Greater amounts of circulating protein, in the form of peptides, harmonize optimal blood pressure in the vascular system, for a stronger heart, lung and circulatory system.*

Better blood flow and vascular pressure directly supports the 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.*

So astragalus makes us stronger by helping protein metabolism work better!*

Better protein metabolism and more efficient circulation means stronger muscles, joints and nerves and enhanced recovery of these tissues.*

Classical Chinese Herbalism suggests that taking Astragalus improves posture; less slouching and standing more upright become the norm.* 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 memory and clarity of thought.*

It is also important to consider the following points when supplementing with Astragalus:

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 also combine well with Astragalus.* Herbal teas like licorice, chamomile, and mint are excellent choices too; as they aid digestion and therefore improve the effects of Astragalus.*

Vitamin and Minerals: It is recommended to take a full-spectrum vitamin and mineral supplements with Astragalus, as their absorption and assimilation in the body will be enhanced by it.* Selenium, especially, is an essential mineral for protein, peptide and enzyme metabolism and is a highly effective cofactor in enzyme antioxidant activity.*

    Astragalus Root Dosage*

    Recommended Dosage: 333 – 3,000 milligrams @ 1-3 times a day*

    Astragalus Dosage Equation:

    The dosage of most tonics work by bodyweight and activity level and dietary factors. The amount of astragalus taken is highly dependent on activity level and diet factors.

    BW + AL + DF

    • Bodyweight (BW) is the overall weight measured by a bathroom or locker room scale.
    • Activity level (AL) is a relative unit based on the amount of work accomplished, stress-levels and fitness-intensity.
    • Diet factors (DF) are based on how much calories and food is taken in, such as protein, fat and carbohydrates.

    Estimated Daily Dosage:

    • BW = 1 dropper per ~150 pounds bodyweight
    • AL = + 1-3 droppers - 1-2 low/medium, 2-3 medium/high
    • DF = + 1 dropper for every ~30-60 grams of protein or ~750-1500 kcal reached

    Example #1: 115lb person (BW = 0-1 dropper) who is going for a moderate trail-hike (AL = 1-3 droppers) and eats ~60 grams of protein and ~1750 kcals (DF = 1-2 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~3-6 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.

    Example #1 is BW 0-1 + AL 1-3 + DF 2 = ~3-6 droppers

    Example #2: 210lb person (BW = 1 dropper) who is going for a jog on a day-off (AL = 1 dropper) and eats ~90 grams of protein and ~2500 kcals (DF = 1-3 droppers) would have a functional dosage of ~3-5 droppers daily divided into 1-3 doses across the day.

    Example #2 is BW 1 + AL 1 + DF 1-3 = ~3-5 droppers

    To find a functional dose, start with a minimum dose of 10 drops to 1 dropper and work up to a functional dose.* Many benefits of tonics come from consistent and continued use over a period of time.*

    Astragalus dropper:

    • 60 1ml droppers in a 2oz (60ml) bottle
    • 1ml dropper = ~1000 mgs astraglus root extract

    Astragalus drops:

    • 30 drops in a 1ml dropper
    • 1 drop = ~33 mgs astragalus root extract

    Suggested Astragalus Cycle:*

    • Initial Phase = 3-60 days
    • Long Term = ∞
    • Optional Cycle-off Period = 1-30 days

    Continuous consumption of Astragalus will yield increasing benefits and results over the time consumed; in other words, consistent daily consumption of Astragalus at a functional dosage over the period of suggested time will increase health and wellness benefits.*

    After an initial cycle Astragalus may be continued on-and-off for long-term supplementation health benefits or traded-out for another tonic adaptogen superfood.*

    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 and assimilation of food and nutrition.*

    The addition of probiotics in the daily diet will further activate the constituents in the extraction for easy assimilation.*

    Astragalus Time Concept

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

    Take as desired: consume on a continuous basis to develop the natural tonic and adaptogenic benefits that build over time.* Some benefits are immediate and some results require consumption over several days and weeks to accomplish.* A good tonic cycle is 45-90 days of a tonic adaptogen which will generate lasting health changes.*

    Shake gently: secure the lid and turn the bottle over back-and-forth 3-5 times to evenly distribute the tincture. Do not over-shake as the vigorous mixing of air with the extract will oxidize and damage many of the necessary constituents for required dosage and potency.

    By mouth: hold the liquid under the tongue for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the rest of extract; doing so allows digestion to begin in the mouth and will take advantage of the activated multi-step extract so that many of the constituents will bypass digestion and enter the body through the mouth and throat.* Holding the extract also promotes better absorption and assimilation and elicits an immediate effect that is performance oriented*

    Mix with water: squirt the drops or entire droppers into 2-4 oz. of water that is under 120*F. Water that is cool to lukewarm temperature is best to preserve the volatile and fragile constituents from being damaged and denatured which will reduce the potency of the extract.* Sip slowly to allow absorption in the mouth and throat.* This method makes it easier to become accustomed to the extract and to take larger doses of several different tinctures at once in a tonic program.*

    For maximum potency: regularly consume the tincture within a period of 45 days; after 45 days of continuous consumption the extract may begin to gradually lose potency requiring a larger dosage to achieve similar benefit.* A bottle will generally last 10-30 days depending on dosage and concurrent supplementation programming.*

            Lasting energy!

            Astragalus is an herbal that I didn't know much about except that it was used by Chinese herbalist a lot. I followed the recommendations and take it when I eat breakfast and lunch. Surprising, it has energy that goes all day.

            Best astragalus tincture

            This is the best astragalus I have ever bought. It is not a watered down version like other brands I've bought in the past. I love the taste of this product.

            Terrific quality

            I love this stuff! I knew I needed to be preventive this season and astragalus is the best immune tonic. I was afraid that this was going to be a watered down version and taste too much like alcohol, but instead it taste like sweet hay. When I took it with meals it worked better. The maker says this is because it gets more energy from the food we eat. My breathing also feels deeper too.
