Astragalus Is good for low immunity due to diseases such as cancer, fibromyalgia, stress, chronic fatigue syndrome, and poor appetite. It has been used in traditional medicine to treat shortness of breath, weakness, colds, flu, night sweats, respiratory disease, lingering diarrhea, uterine and rectal prolapsed, boils, and sores. It only grows in Asia and is generally regarded as safe.

Research was done on 19 cancer patients and 15 healthy people at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX. A special prepare extract was given to each participant. The research concluded that Astragalus contained a potent immune stimulant that restored the immune systems function in the majority of the cancer patients.

*Astragalus seemed to key in on:

  1. Bone marrow where the formation of immune cells takes place.
  2. Polysaccharides; which are compounds that stimulate the white blood cells production.
  3. Increase the activity of killer T cells which are the body’s natural defenders that hunt and destroy abnormal invaders.
  4. Increasing the production of Interferon, A natural protein. This Protein allows for cells to thicken, building a wall, so that viruses have a harder time getting in.
