Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb that's been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Astragalus is a "non-specific" immune modulator which increases the number of specialized white blood cells called macrophages that enhance the body's fight against organisms.
Master Herbalist Stephen Buhner extensively outlines the benefits of Astragalus for a Lyme Disease mitigation strategy and I personally take 7 capsules of my formula on a daily basis, especially during the summer months to prevent infections in case I get bit by a tick.
Astragalus is safe for long-term, indefinite use at a high level, 2-3 grams per day.
Astragalus may help with:
Chemotherapy and cancer strategy
Regulating blood sugar
Immune system optimization
Eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and other skin conditions
