Sick a lot? Astragalus is an extraordinary root for strengthening your body’s resistance to disease. It helps keep your immune system healthy and able to stop those cold and flu bugs in their tracks. Astragalus also has significant levels of antioxidants that prevent free radicals from aging your body sooner than it has to! In traditional Chinese medicine, it is used to keep the lungs healthy. This one’s a must for your medicine cabinet!
Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus). It is a 1:4 root extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Astragalus is used in Herbal Medicine to help maintain a healthy immune system.
For best results, take astragalus on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 4 times per day. 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. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, immune-balancing drink!
Caution: Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using astragalus if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Because astragalus acts on the immune system, anyone with an auto-immune disorder should also check with their healthcare practitioner first before taking it. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
