An immune system enhancing herb which works well for individuals who are weakened, who suffer from frequent infectious illnesses (such as children starting their first year of school or childcare), or who have poor digestion or nutritional status. It helps strengthen the immune system, helping keep people healthy and from becoming sick in the first place. This herb is most beneficial when used each and every day, on a long-term basis (like you would with a multi-vitamin), as it is a nutritive herb which takes some time for best results to be seen.
Note: this herb should not be used in the presence of a fever as it could worsen it. If one does become ill, a suggestion is to use Echinacea and Cold & Flu Tincture to help the illness pass more quickly, and then once recovered, resume use of the Astragalus to continue the immune strengthening process. Our clients tend to find that they (or their children) become sick less and less until they find that they're not getting sick much at all anymore.
Organic Astragalus Root. The regular tincture is extracted in organic grape alcohol and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free and GMO-free.
Adults: Use 2 droppersful 2-3 times daily, each and every day. Children: Use the age-appropriate dose 2-3 times a day, each and every day. Use the non-alcohol version for children. See the Children's Dosage Guide for dosage recommendations. Note: Discontinue use during any illness, as the herb is warming and stimulating and may exacerbate fever.
I teach kindergarten. I took Herb Lore's Astragalus Tincture last winter, and it was the first time in four years that I did not come down with pneumonia. Needless to say, I plan to take it this year again too! C.M.
I have chronic fatigue syndrome and am 73, post small cancer of breast and radiation. My niece recommended your products. Since taking the Astralagus, there is a huge difference. Before taking it, I was feeling tired all the time - even waking up feeling tired -- and had to divide my day with rest periods, going to lie down between chores. Now I can get through the day with fewer rest periods and i feel normal again! I realize you mostly deal with pre and post births, but Astralagus can apply to so many other issues. Please do let the person who creates your tinctures know. Amazing, and so thankful that my niece recommended you! R.M.
Pam, I just wanted to let you know that you & your team are so amazing! You are a very intelligent and thoughtful woman. I just checked my email & read your recent newsletter. I bought the Astragalus, Echinacea, Quiet Cough, & Cold & Flu tinctures earlier this month, and at first, I was a little bummed that I didn't know about the monthly discount code beforehand. Honestly, it's great stuff, works amazing & is worth every penny at full price! Especially after reading the information in the newsletter, you deserve the full price! I hope your day & your year is as beautiful as your heart is Pam. Love, M.C.
Pam's tinctures, blog posts and Q&As have been such a Godsend as I've navigated the ups and downs of motherhood this year, and I am so deeply grateful for all that she does! I first discovered her products at Healthy Horizons in Burlingame when I was starting to get recurrent plugged ducts while trying to breastfeed my daughter, and my lactation consultant recommended Herb Lore's Poke Root tincture to me. It was hugely helpful in clearing up any plugs that I had going on, but unfortunately they started recurring more and more frequently and I eventually had to make the decision to wean my baby off and dry up the milk I was producing. I then switched to Herb Lore's Sage Tincture which helped me dry up safely, while continuing to nurse my baby as long as I could. After that I discovered her other non-alcohol based tinctures including Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold & Flu, Quiet Cough and also her Teething Tincture, and I love that I now have a natural, drug-free way to protect my family from all the germs and flu viruses around us especially during flu season. And of course with my baby's teething pains! Pam and her guidance, information and herbal tinctures have now become such a big part of my family's life and health that I don't know what I'd do without her. Thank you Pam! RJ
