Astragalus Astragalus

SWANSON Astragalus is a natural dietary supplement containing a high-quality, standardised astragalus root extract (Astragalus membranaceus). The product strengthens the immune and circulatory systems, boosts energy and vitality, and exhibits strong antioxidant and adaptogenic properties.

Astragalus – the benefits of using the plant have been known for thousands of years; however, it is still an object of many scientific studies and the full range of its healthy properties is still being discovered.

Astragalus is a herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, where it is known as an agent supporting spleen functions, improving appetite and helping in the case of diarrhoea. Currently, astragalus is used in order to protect the immune and circulatory system because of its anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective and immunity supporting effects.

Bioactive substances

The biologically active components found in astragalus root are mainly triterpene saponins, known as astragalosides and flavonoids. Moreover, the plant is a source of polysaccharides (including astragalans), phytosterols and essential oil.

Protection of the cardiovascular system

Saponins contained in astragalus root have the ability to regulate heartbeat frequency by influencing the activity of the sodium-potassium pump, a structure responsible for maintaining a normal concentration of sodium and potassium ions in the intra- and extracellular space.

Astragalosides are beneficial for the enzymatic activity of nitric oxide synthase, thanks to which they improve blood flow through coronary arteries while reducing the risk of ischaemic heart disease.

Astragalus is a tonic for heart functions, it regulates arterial blood pressure and helps to maintain the right lipid profile; thanks to a high content of substances with an antioxidant potential, it also has a protective effect on the cardiovascular system and proves effective in preventing diseases of affluence, particularly those connected directly with the circulatory system.

Support for the immune system

Polysaccharides contained in astragalus root have been observed to stimulate phagocytosis and contribute to the increased activity of lymphocytes and macrophages, and the production of proinflammatory cytokines; saponins, on the other hand, support the functioning of NK cells. The described properties explain their positive effect on natural defence mechanisms, improved immunity and support for the immune system.

Adaptogenic properties

Astragalus belongs to adaptogens, that is substances of plant origin that support the organism’s immunity to stress factors. Astragalus helps the organism to restore balance distorted by chronic stress, work overload, a fast pace of life and other factors that have a negative effect on the mood and the organism in general. The plant supports mechanisms of adaptation and effectively protects the organism from the harmful effects of exposure to stress factors, improves the mood, boosts energy and reduces the feeling of tiredness.

To sum up, SWANSON Astragalus is a safe and natural product containing substances with high immunological activity. The supplement is a source of bioactive compounds with an immunostimulant, anti-inflammatory and antiviral effect, and it protects the liver.

The product is recommended particularly for people who need to support their cardiovascular system and improve their immunity. Moreover, the preparation is a source of antioxidants, thanks to which it is brilliant for preventing diseases of affluence (including coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, cancer).
