Astragalus (astragalus membranaceus) is a plant native to China, Mongolia and Korea and its root has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to help alleviate various conditions as well as improve general strength and immunity. In modern times, it is a proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. As an adaptogen, it helps make the body more resilient to the effects of physical, mental, and emotional stress.
Research shows that the immune support provided by astragalus is beneficial to a number of conditions such as treating and preventing colds, flus and upper respiratory infections, heart disease and heart failure, cancer, diabetes, anemia, hepatitis, kidney disease, and even seasonal allergies.
Colds and Flus
Its antiviral properties stimulate the immune system and help prevent and reduce cold and flusymptoms. Astragalus inhibits common viruses, the influenza virus, and common bacteria, such as nonhemolytic streptococcus, pneumococcus, and Staphylococcus aureus, which can all cause upper respiratory tract infections.
Cancer & Tumors
In some parts of the world, astragalus is even used as part of cancer treatment. Some studies suggest that it helps strengthen the immune system of people undergoing chemotherapy. The studies suggest that astragalus supplements seem to help people recover faster, live longer, inhibit the development of tumors, decrease the toxic-adverse effect of chemotherapy, elevate the immune function of organisms and improve the quality of life in patients.
Heart Disease and Heart Failure
Astragalus can alleviate the calcium overload-induced myocardial damage and improve both systolic and diastolic functions of the heart in patients with cardiac heart failure. Since astragalus is an antioxidant, it may help relieve symptoms in people with severe forms of heart disease, lower cholesterol levels and improve heart function.
Wilaya King Lysine has 50 mg of pure sourced astragalus root in every capsule. For general immune support, colds, flus and upper respiratory tract infections a dose of 1-2 capsules a day of King Lysine is appropriate. However, for those that have cancer, heart disease or heart failure, please consult your doctor. In those cases, if recommended by your doctor, a more potent dose would likely be administered intravenous.
