If you are sick a lot or live in fear of “flu season” then you will be grateful for the immune strengthening and supporting power of Astragalus. It strengthens your body’s resistance to disease over time. 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 also has significant levels of antioxidants that prevent free radicals from aging your body sooner than it has to. Research has demonstrated that Astragalus 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. In the laboratory, Astragalus has shown itself to be not only an effective anti-viral, but also an impressive broad-spectrum antibiotic, inhibiting certain bacteria that can potentially cause severe illness in the body.
