Astragalus is used as a potent immune system tonic.   According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus tonifies the protective quality known as Wei Chi.  Western medical studies have confirmed that Astragalussupports and strengthens many parts of the immune system and has antiviral properties¹

People with autism or environment-related illness often show high levels of antibodies to Measles, CMV, Lymes and other infections, or may catch a lot of seasonal infections, and immune support may be an important part of caring for their health.

Studies² show that Astragalus stimulates macrophages and white blood cells, helping to prepare the body to fight off invaders, and also increases supplies of Natural Killer (NK) cells, bone marrow, stem cells and lymph available to help fight infections.  Astragalus supports production by the body of Interferon, a potent viral inhibitor.   Another benefit of Astragalus is a boost to the production of hormone messenger molecules needed to send a signal to the immune system that a virus or bacteria is present and needs to be destroyed.

Astragalus supports the major organs, including the spleen, lungs and liver, as well as kidneys and heart.  The spleen and liver are some of the body’s natural filters, and help to remove toxins and other materials which can be harmful. Astragalushelps to keep these filters healthy and actively at work filtering your body.
