The Science Behind:


Traditional medicine for the modern world

Astragalus membranaceus is a herb that has been widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for at least 2000 years and by Western herbalists since the 1800s. It has been used for its antioxidant effects, to modulate the immune system and to assist with managing stress due to its adaptogen properties.

Adaptogens help the body to adapt to physical, emotional and mental stress which is ideal for our modern world.

Traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine to...

• Support healthy immune system function
• Support a healthy stress response
• Help the body adapt to stress
• Support general health and wellbeing

“I love the versatility of Astragalus and I frequently use this in my clinical practice for it’s impact on immune system function

Plus there’s the added adaptogen bonus as it helps the body adapt to stress. And as I’m sure you’ve experienced, when you’re stressed you’re more likely to get sick, and when you’re sick it’s a stress on the body. That’s why this herbal medicine was vital to the Energy Glow NR formula.”
