This is my second bottle and I'm really happy with it. I take this along Vitamin C for immune support - I can say it works since I'm not getting sick (although everyone around me was/is getting sick all the time). But the one thing I've noticed is that it really helps with the nerve pain. I had nerve pain in my foot and literally after few days of taking this supplement the pain stopped and never returned! As for the size of the pills, they are rather small and very easy to swallow.
Astragala root has been used in Chinese medicine as an adaptogen to effectively combat stress and disease. It has anti-inflammatory and immunostimulating qualities, can slow down aging processes. The root contains: saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides, amino acids, a certain amount of vitamin D, folic acid, zinc, copper and selenium. Heard that it is great for kidneys as well. Recommended so far.
I bought this Astragalus as an adaptogen supplement to support my busy lifestyle and to support immune system and it feels like it is doing what I expected. I take 1 capsule along side the Paradise B vitamins on an empty stomach just before breakfast. I love the purity and quality ingredients of this Astragalus herb extract, with no additives, just in a veggie capsule. They have kept fresh in the bottle for the 4 months that they have been open and I have felt the benefits of taking them, so I have recently purchased another bottle.
Good company and good extract. It seemed like a clean extract, liked the small capsule size, and love the lack of excipients within the other ingredients. Astragalus has a lot of benefits, but may not be great like other herbs to take continuously all the time. However, it's great to take a few months on, few months off. Seemed to be of high quality though.
This brand of supplement with the ingredient of Astragalus extract has been of benefit to add to my group of herbs used for acute illness like colds/flu. I have also used this when I had a tooth infection. I tolerate this well as it does not have magnesium stearate and some other problem additives. It has been helpful for me to use at least 4 times a day when the first symptoms arrive.
