Astragalus root is known as a warm energizer and muscle potentiator. It ranks as one of the most potent health tonics. Astragalus root, as an energizer, has muscle-strengthening properties, making it excellent for those who are physically active and require a lot of energy. Because of its warming properties, it is especially advised for those who work outside in cold weather.
Astragalus has the effect of fortifying the energy allotted by the body to maintain upright posture and the location of the organs in their fight against gravity. The upright Qi energy is quickly lost when one grows older or endures chronic fatigue or depletion, or during disease, resulting in organ sinking or prolapse. One of the key roles of the spleen is to keep the organs in the proper place for optimal performance.
Astragalus can be used as a fortifier against hernias or organs prolapsing, or the inability to stand straight due to extreme fatigue.
As Astragalus has an effect on the protective Qi, manifested at the skin levels, it is used to help healing faster the skin sores or wounds. The protective Qi circulates in the subcutaneous tissues, providing suppleness to the flesh and energy to the skin. This function is essential to life because it is the first line of defense against the offensive forces of nature.
Astragalus also helps in the treatment of psoriasis and will also reduce redness and irritation of the skin. As explained earlier, astragalus has antioxidant properties, which makes it an excellent remedy to ensure a healthy skin.
Astragalus is beneficial for those who can’t seem to get rid of a cold. It also has a moderate diuretic effect, which aids in perspiration reduction. It aids in the treatment of loose stools, chronic diarrhea, and recurrent colds.
Powerful Immune Modulator
Astragalus is capable of building immune response while suppressing excessive immune activity, as occurs in autoimmune conditions (including allergies and arthritis). In addition, it has a strong anti-oxidant effect.
Preparation and Utilization
Almost any tonic aimed to strengthen the entire body can include astragalus. It is appropriate for both men and women, young and old. It should not be used during the acute stage of the flu, but it is highly recommended during the recovery stage.
No food, herbs or supplements should be taken for long periods or in large quantities. Follow the instructions on the packaging and always do a thorough research, both online and offline (books, intuition, meditation). Find someone who has used Astragalus before and ask them about their results. Try it yourself and observe your body’s reactions. Use your intuition to evaluate every new ingredient you are trying. Whenever you notice discomfort caused by a new food or herb intake, discontinue its use and research further. Some items are not for everyone.; there is no general treatment applicable to everybody. We are all unique and therefore must tailor our diets to our specific needs.
