SCIENCE-BASED ASTRAGALUS EXTRACT FOR ENHANCED THERAPEUTIC EFFECT
Astragalus is a complex combination of polysaccharides, triterpene glycosides, flavonoids, amino acids, and trace minerals. Astragalus may restore T-cell (a specific type of white blood cell) counts to relatively normal ranges in suppressed patients. Astragalus polysaccharides have also been shown to stimulate pituitary-adrenal-cortical activity and restore depleted red blood-cell formation in bone marrow. Again confirming traditional Chinese medicine, astragalus has been shown to stimulate the body’s natural production of interferon and is also useful for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, common cold/sore throat, chemotherapy support, and immune function.
Astragalus (Huang Qi; Astragalus membranaceus), has been used in traditional medicine historically for it’s immunomodulating, antiviral, diuretic properties.[1,2] Astragalus is enriched with a complex combination of polysaccharides, triterpene glycosides, flavonoids, amino acids, and trace minerals.[2,3]
Astragalus has been studied for its benefits in restoring T-cell (a specific type of white blood cell) counts to relatively normal ranges and inducing pituitary-adrenal-cortical activity to restore depleted red blood-cell formation in bone marrow.[2,4] Traditional Chinese medicine evidence suggests the adaptogenic ability of astragalus in enhancing immune function.

Astragalus membranaceus, an ingredient historically used in many traditional herbal extracts, acts as an immunomodulating agent for the purpose of treating immunodeficiency diseases.
Astragalus extracts have also been noted to alleviate the effects of chemotherapy, and it has also been proposed that this plant may possess antitumorigenic effects in certain cancer cell types.
Further to this, astragalus has been hypothesized to increase immune cell activity in humans.
Astragalus has been shown to increase resistance to the immunosuppressive effects of chemotherapy drugs, while stimulating macrophages to produce interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Supplementing with astragalus can reduce the dosage required in treating cancer patients. The severe side effects of IL2 therapy (e.g., acute renal failure, capillary leakage syndrome, myocardial infarction, and fluid retention) might be reduced.
