Health Notes

Astragalus

Astragalus
Common names:
Huang Qi, Milk Vetch
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

          I use this product all year to prevent colds and especially in the winter because it prevents me from getting sinus infections. Before I started taking this, I was at the doctors every 2 wks for antibiotics for a sinus infection or cold, now, I never get sinus infections or sick, unless I stop taking the astragalus. I know now that I need it to stay healthy. No bad things to say about it.

            I have taken daily for four years and have
            not had a "sniffle" of any type during that
            time. My wife also takes Astragalus.
            I have recommended this to several friends.

                  I have been taking this for about 2 years now. I'm an RN who is exposed to a host of germs and illnesses on a daily basis. I've rarely gotten sick since starting Astragalus and I've even noticed that during the few times I have gotten sick that if I double up on the daily dose it seems that my illness doesn't last as long and I recover faster than I used to. I would recommend this product to everyone!
