Astragalus is 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 on a long-term basis, as it is a nutritive working which takes some time for best results to be seen. Note: 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 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 any more. (Please see our Children's Dosage Guide to help you determine how much to give to children.)
Ingredients: Organic Astragalus Root. The regular tincture is extracted in organic grape alcohol, and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine (made with non-GMO soy) and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free.
- I teach kindergarten. I took Astragalus 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 - waking up feeling tired even-- 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.
