What is Astragalus?


The genus Astragalus is an enormous group of more than 2,000 species distributed worldwide, commonly known as milk vetches. The Chinese species A. membranaceus and the related A. mongholicus are thought to be varieties of the same species. Both are perennial herbs native to the northern provinces of China and are cultivated in China, Korea, and Japan. The dried root is used medicinally. Astragalus roots are sold as long pieces, which have a tough, fibrous skin with a lighter interior. Some products are produced by frying the roots with honey, although the untreated root itself has a sweet, licorice-like taste.


What is Astragalus used for?


Traditional/Ethnobotanical uses

Astragalus root is a very old, well-known drug in traditional Chinese medicine, and currently is official in the Chinese Pharmacopeia. It is used in China principally as a tonic and for treatment of diabetes and nephritis. It is an important component of Fu-Zheng therapy in China, where the goal is to restore immune system function. There is extensive Chinese literature on the drug.



The most common use of astragalus root in herbal medicine in the US is as an immunostimulant to counteract the immune suppression associated with cancer therapy. This use is based on limited observations made in laboratory research. Research reveals no animal or clinical data regarding the use of astragalus as an immunostimulant.



A second use of astragalus root in the US is for HIV infection. A series of reports from China claim that treatment with herbal mixtures including astragalus can aid a small fraction of HIV patients. These reports need to be verified. One small study on the effects of astragalus showed promise and a larger clinical trial might confirm these effects as significant.


Other uses

Astragalus often is recommended for the prevention of the common cold. However, there are no published clinical trials that support this use.


Is Astragalus safe?



The root appears to be safe. However, an observation of mutagenicity (to cause mutations) must be explored.



Information regarding safety and efficacy in pregnancy and lactation is lacking.



Astragalus may have immunostimulating effects. Therefore, astragalus possibly may interfere with the immunosuppressive effects of cyclosporine and the cortisone class of drugs. Avoid taking astragalus at the same time as these, or other immunomodulating, drugs.



Astragalus extract was mutagenic in the Ames test.

BF1 Essential Aroma Oils Delivery Was Very Fast

- 22th August 2016 5/5 Stars

I bought two essential aroma oils and the delivery was very fast. I am happy that Vincent took the time to update me on the progress of the delivery. The oils were wrapped up well to ensure no breakage or spillage. I bought the AO Lavender and Lemon grass and they smelt good, not artificial at all. I am very happy and will definitely buy again. And thank you for the free gift of the soap. Thank you!
