Astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus) is used in herbal medicine for its long, thin diagonal sections. Astragalus has the unusual ability to stimulate certain immune functions while depressing others. It is an overall body tonic that is used to strengthen digestion, increase metabolic activity, and stimulate the immune system. Astragalus is most effective when it is used on a long term, daily basis.
-Astragalus is highly beneficial for anyone who experiences fatigue, low vitality, and frequent recurring infections.
-Astragalus increases how much blood the heart can pump (which is limited in heart disease) in patients with chest pain. It strengthens the left side of the heart, the part that is usually sluggish in heart disease, and slows heart rate in those whose hearts are beating too fast.
-In ancient Chinese medicine, astragalus seed was used to treat infertile men. Tests have shown that the herb does increase sperm motility, or the vigorous activity of sperm.
-Astragalus strengthens the movement and muscle tone of the intestine to increase movements of food through the GI tract.
