Research

Astragalus contains three potent components: saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides. Saponins are known for their ability to lower cholesterol, improve the immune system and prevent cancer. Flavonoids, provide health benefits through cell signaling. They show antioxidant qualities, control and scavenge free radicals, and can help prevent heart disease, cancer and immunodeficiency viruses.

Polysaccharides are known to have antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Free radical damage is the main attributor in disease and aging, but astragalus fights this damage and prevents oxidative stress. The herb’s polysaccharides have positive effects on the immune system and improvement of the function of the brain, both of which could lengthen life span.

Astragalus has also been studied as an anti-diabetic. Studies show its ability to relieve insulin resistance and treat diabetes naturally. The herb’s saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides all are effective in treating and regulating type 1 and 2 diabetes. They’re able to increase insulin sensitivity, protect pancreatic beta cells and also act as anti-inflammatories in areas related to diabetes symptoms.
