Astragaloside is derived from the root of Astragalus Membranaceus in the pea family. Astragaloside is also known as milk vetch root (referring to astragalus species that grow in the United States) and huangqi. The portion of the plant used medicinally is the fourth seven year old dried root collected in the spring and autumn.
Astragaloside is an adaptogen, that is, it has a balancing effect on bodily functions. Astragaloside is used by practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine to strengthen or tone the body's overall vitality, improve digestion, and support the spleen. Studies confirm it contains medicinally active compounds, including a polysaccharide that stimulates the immune system.
Research has also shown that astragaloside with advanced cancer showed a two to three fold increase in the strength of their immune response after being given astragalus. A second study showed that astragalus boosted immune response, even in animals that were treated with an immunosuppressive drug, cyclophosphamide. Astragaloside is taken in China by cancer patients to boost immunity after drug or radiation treatment. It may protect body cells against heavy metals and chemical toxins. Astragaloside is a good source of the essential trace mineral selenium. Astragaloside is often combined in formulas with ginseng and other Chinese herbs.
