tragalus membranaceus, the active ingredient in Astragalus 9000™, is primarily used in western medicine to strengthen the immune system function. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used in augmenting the QI (vital energy) and tonify the spleen.
By augmenting QI, Astragalus is also an adaptogen, meaning it helps protect the body from physical, mental, or emotional stress. Spleen is a less talked about organ but it is an important one. The spleen plays multiple supporting roles in the body. It acts as a filter for blood and lymphatic system as an important part of the immune system function. Used red blood cells are recycled in the spleen, and platelets and white blood cells are stored there for recycling.
Astragalus is therefore useful to improve the immune response, among others by potentiating the effects of interferon and it has been confirmed to enhance the immune system in vitro and in vivo investigations.
Astragalus 9000™ provides a concentrated 20:1 extract from the root of Astragalus membranaceus, being one of the most potent Astragalus products in its class.
