Astragalus Changes the Meaning of “Flu Season”
If you live in fear of “flu season” then you will be grateful all winter long for the immune strengthening power of astragalus. Astragalus throws a one-two punch at colds and flus by supporting the immune system as well as stopping nasty bugs in their tracks. This root is an ancient Chinese remedy renowned for its ability to reduce the severity and duration of viral infections and, more importantly, to prevent them!
Astragalus and Immunity
Research has demonstrated that astragalus works on a number of different levels within the immune system. It can increase white blood cell counts and levels of interferon in the body, which in turn helps to stimulate those elements of the immune system that swallow up viruses and prevent them from replicating. Pharmacologically, it is thought that the polysaccharide components of astragalus are responsible for its multi-faceted immune support. Buth the root as a whole contains a wide array of other active ingredients, including saponins, flavonoids and coumarins, that give astragalus its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties.
Anti-Viral and Anti-Bacterial
In the laboratory, astragalus has shown itself to be not only an effective anti-viral, but also an impressive broad-spectrum antibiotic. In vitro trials of the root have demonstrated the inhibition of staphylococci, haemolytic streptococci, pneumococci, diptheriae and Bacillus dysenteriae, all bacteria that can potentially cause severe illness in the body.
Astragalus has shown promise in the treatment of a number of other disease states due to its many active components, which is leading to more extensive study by researchers. Early studies have shown it to have liver protective effects and a positive impact on the cardiovascular system, including reduced blood pressure and improved circulation. Other research has shown that a component of astragalus, called cycloastragenol, may have an indirect effect on protecting DNA. This has many implications, since DNA damage is thought to be a predictor of age-related disease.
So, throw on your astragalus boxing gloves and give those cold and flu bugs the one-two punch!
Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure that the magic of every herb is unleashed. The result is a medicinal version of liquid gold. Each tincture is bursting with the healing power of nature. Rapid absorption of a tincture taken orally allows the body to quickly begin working to restore health on every level. The body can absorb up to 98% of the medicinal components of the Orange Naturals herbal tincture since absorption takes place immediately in the mouth. In contrast, herbs taken in capsule or tablet form much first be broken down by the digestive system and thus absorption can be significantly lower.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml of Orange Naturals Astragalus, 4 times per day on an empty stomach. To dispense, fill the dropper half way, which gives you 1 ml. Repeat to get 2 ml.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of boiled water.
