Hepatica Astragalus Premium is a dietary supplement that contains highly concentrated Astragalus membranaceus root extract, standardized for the minimum of 5% of astragalosides IV. The preparation shows an adaptogenic effect and supports the functioning of the immune system.
Astragalus membranaceus root extract – a plant originating from China, used in the folk medicine of the Far East in order to increase strength and support the regeneration of the body. The saponins contained in the plant belong to the group of adaptogenic compounds whose task is to adjust the function of the system to the conditions of intense physical and mental work that may generate stress. In addition, it has been noted that active substances may support the functioning of many internal organs.
Promoting the fight against infections
Recent years has brought numerous publications on the potential impact of different substances of plant origin on the immune system. One of the plants that support the defensive capabilities of the body and regulates the work of immunocompetent cells is the Astragalus.
It has been noticed that Astragalus has an influence on the secretion of substances which enable effective communication of cells. These include pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha, GM-CSF), which stimulate lymphocytes and macrophages that are responsible for eliminating pathogenic microorganisms. The plant can also potentialize NK as well as more specialized LAK cells, which is an element of prevention against the development of cancer.
Prevention of cardiovascular diseases
One of the substances contained in the Astragalus which play a significant role in the function of the circulatory system is astragaloside IV. It has been shown to have an effect on NO synthase – an enzyme that is responsible for the production of nitric oxide. This compound shows a myorelaxant effect, which in practice means that it improves the flow of blood through the coronary vessels, thereby improving the blood supply to the myocardium and preventing infarct events.
The reduction of tension in vascular smooth muscle also leads to a reduction in blood pressure. This is good news for people at risk of developing hypertension. Few people know that this disease leads to serious organ damage (kidney failure, ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, as well as many others), therefore it is important to implement well-thought-out prevention.
There have been also promising reports of the inhibitory effects of Astragalus on lipid peroxidation, or the synthesis of cholesterol and homocysteine. The first process is a source of free radicals, whose activity leads to chemical modification of cholesterol-transporters – lipoproteins, which are more likely to accumulate in the vascular wall, resulting in the development of atherosclerosis. Another factor and at the same time a marker that allows estimating the risk of this disease is homocysteine. As can be seen, the potential of active substances contained in Astragalus is quite wide in this regard.
In some health situations, the compounds obtained from the Astragalus show an anti-inflammatory action – they reduce the expression of the NF-kB and TGF-beta factors. This leads to a significant reduction in the risk of damage to the renal tubules and glomeruli.
Another significant property shown by Astragalus is the diuretic effect. By acting on the ANP hormone, the compounds of the plant contribute to the increased secretion of sodium ions along with ultrafiltrate excreted by the kidneys. Removal of this element is also associated with the loss of subcutaneous water, which is part of the fight against swelling (e.g. among women before menstruation), whereas the hypotensive effect may be a great solution for people with hypertension.
Other pro-health effects
The potential of astragalosides is almost inexhaustible. In addition to the above-mentioned activities, they also show adaptogenic properties and thus affect the reduced feeling of stress. This leads to the restoration of the systemic balance, disturbed by the prolonged elevation of cortisol, which is harmful to the structures of the nervous system. The tolerance to external stressors also increases.
The liver is an organ known for its self-healing abilities. As it turns out, the self-healing process of the liver can be additionally supported by Astragalus, which protects the pulp of the organ from damage caused by toxic drugs or alcohol. In addition, it can be helpful in the treatment of viral hepatitis.
There are indications that supplementation with Astragalus extract may improve the overall quality of life, including an improvement in vitality, increased energy and willingness to act, but also an increase in life expectancy. The latter is owed to the protection of nervous structures against degeneration. An interesting fact is also the molecular impact of the plant on cell division – inhibition of telomere shortening, i.e. structures located at the end of each chromosome, exhaustion of which leads to errors in the replication of genetic material and death.
In summary, Hepatica Astragalus Premium is the highest quality supplement that contains substances of natural origin, supporting the work of many systems in the body, including immune functions, thus preventing the development of infections, diseases and even cancers.
Supplement intended for everyone, regardless of age. The most effective may be taking the preparation during the autumn and winter period, due to the reduced defensive capabilities of the body resulting from adverse weather conditions and less nutritious diet.
Supplementation with Astragalus should be considered by people who are exposed to permanent stress, who have problems handling stress as well as people who are lacking proper regeneration of the body.
