Doctors. It contains antioxidants, which guard
cells against injury caused by free radicals.

is used to protect and support the immune system, for
preventing colds and upper respiratory infections, to lower
blood pressure, to treat diabetes, and to protect the liver.

to boost infection-fighting white blood cell production and
spur the activity of killer T cells.

Pregnant women should not use. Patients with
bleeding disorders or on drugs that increase the risk of
bleeding should also use Astragalus with caution as it can
