    ASTRAGALUS HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    AN ANCIENT TRADITIONAL CHINESE HERB

    Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is also known as Milk Vetch, Huang Qi (Chinese), Ogi (Japanese), and Hwanggi (Korean). Astragalus has a rich history of use in Chinese and Asian cultures. It is native to Northern China, Mongolia and North Korea.

    Astragalus is an herbaceous perennial, growing between 25 and 40 centimeters in height. It bears small yellow flowers, has a thick root with a yellowish, fibrous, tough skin that has a slightly licorice taste. It grows in grassy regions and on mountainsides, requiring plenty of exposure to the sun. When grown for cultivation, the plants are traditionally harvested after four or five years, with the roots collected in the spring or fall. The mdicinal roots are dried in the sun and then sliced fr distribution. The slices are yellow in color and have a sweet, moistening taste with a firm, fibrous texture.

    Astragalus use dates back as far as 200 BC, and even then, was renowned for its ability to balance the body’s systems, especially the lungs and spleen. The Chinese name, huang qi means "yellow leader" and was so named for the yellow color of the root. It is an ancient component of traditional Chinese medicine. For thousands of years the Chinese have used it to strengthen qi (life force or energy), or its American term, immune system. The herb, Astragalus, is mentioned and classified as a superior herb in a classical composition Shen Nong Pen Tsao Ching, Divine Husbandman's Classic of the Materia Medica, written anonymously during the first century AD (circa 100 AD) and attributed to the teachings of Shen Nong (Shennong), the legendary founder of Chinese herbal medicine who is thought to have lived approximately 5,000 years ago. The portion of the plant used medicinally is the four to seven-year-old dried root collected in the spring. European botanists first wrote about its medicinal qualities in the 1700s.

    ASTRAGALUS USES & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    A graceful, flowing plant with long stems bearing paired, pointed leaves and purple flowers, the Astragalus is harvested for its roots that are white when dug out of the ground, becoming yellow as they are dried.

    Constituents include astragalosides and other immunostimulant polysaccharides, beta-sitosterol, flavonoids, and trace minerals, especially selenium. The part used are the dried root in the form of tea, encapsulated or as an extract. Powder is mildly sweet and may be sprinkled on food or whipped into a shake or smoothie.

    In European and Arabic folk medicine, Astragalus herb was used in treating tumors of the eyes, liver, and throat. Many Native American Indians chewed the roots for chest and back pains, and to soothe coughs. Indian women chewed the root to help stimulate milk production. Astragalus root was also applied to cuts and wounds to help promote healing. The bark has laxative properties, and the root has laxative, adaptogens, antiviral, antioxidant, cardiovascular, tonic, and diuretic properties.

    While there are over 2,000 types of Astragalus worldwide, the Chinese version has been extensively tested, both chemically and pharmacologically. Polysaccharides in Astragalus stimulate white blood cell production and increase the production of interferon, a natural protein that can help ward off and prevent viral infections. Scientific studies of this herb have shown it to be effective on cancer and HIV patients by restoring compromised immune cells. Chinese scientists have found that Astragalus protects the body from absorption of toxic chemicals into the liver. Other research shows that people using this herb had less angina than those given heart drugs such as nifedipine. Chinese people consider Astragalus to be a better energy tonic for young people than Ginseng. This herb is also used to help ward off or treat colds, improve heart function, memory, and learning, and promote the healing of wounded skin. Astragalus works well in treating anorexia, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, malaria, kidney inflammations, painful urination, prolapsed uterus, uterine bleeding, edema, water retention, constipation, fever, and generalized weakness.

    In test tubes, Astragalus has been found to promote the formation of antibodies and increase the production of T-cells, one of the body's key lines of defense against disease. A recent clinical trial verified the herb's ability to boost the supply of infection-fighting white blood cells. Astragalus also has a proven ability to boost heart function and improve cardiac output. It helps relieve chest distress and breathlessness due to a weakened heart.

    Although many people take Astragalus at the onset of cold or flu symptoms, the Chinese believe taking huang qi at that time will cause the infection to go deeper. They instead use it while healthy as a defense shield against future illnesses.

    ASTRAGALUS DOSAGE INFORMATION

    SUPPLEMENTS

    This legendary medicinal plant is a perennial with long, fibrous roots, native to North China and Inner Mongolia. It is sold in both wild and cultivated forms. Chinese pharmacies sell bundles of thin root-slices that resemble tongue depressors and have a sweet taste. These are simmered in medicinal soups, the slices being removed before serving because they are too tough to chew. Obviously, the root powder can be swallowed along with the rest of the decoction.

    Although many people take Astragalus at the onset of cold or flu symptoms, the Chinese believe taking huang qi at that time will cause the infection to go deeper. They instead use it while healthy as a defense shield against future illnesses.

    Most authorities on traditional Chinese medicine recommend taking 9 to 15 (up to 30) grams (3 to 5 tablespoons) of Astragalus whole herb per day as a decoction, made by boiling the ground, dried root in water for a few minutes and then brewing the tea. May also be taken in capsules, tablets or fluid extract form. Dried Root and prepared tea are to be taken for this herb. For best results, consult with your health care practitioner for the treatment or your condition.

    FOR IMPROVING IMMUNE FUNCTION

    Practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine consider astragalus a true tonic that can strengthen debilitated patients and increase resistance to disease in general. In contemporary Chinese medicine, it is also a chief component of zheng fu therapy, a combination herbal treatment designed to restore immune function in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Astragalus is a complex combination of polysaccharides, triterpene glycosides, flavonoids, amino acids, and trace minerals Astragalus polysaccharides have been shown to stimulate pituitary-adrenal cortical activity and restore depleted red blood cell formation in bone marrow. Again, confirming traditional Chinese medicine, Astragalus has been shown to stimulate the body's natural production of interferon.

    Astragalus is now prescribed, in both the East and the West, for immuno-compromised people, or people who easily 'catch' illnesses. The decoction is safe to use repeatedly on a daily basis. Research in China has demonstrated increased survival in patients receiving both herbal and Western therapies, as well as protection from the immunosuppressive effects of the latter. Studies in the West confirm that astragalus enhances immune function by increasing activity of several kinds of white blood cells and boosting production of antibodies and interferon, the body's own antiviral agent. Numerous scientific studies have confirmed the medicinal value of astragalus. Immunopharmacology (1990;20) and Mutation Research (1992) found enhancement response by Astragalus extract, Journal of Ethnopharmacology (1990) reported a hepatoprotective effect and indicated that ethanol extract of Astragalus alleviates liver injury, Archivos del Instituto de Cardiologia de Mexico (1993) announced the vasodilator and antihypertensive properties of Astragalus extract. Since the 1950s, scientists have discovered the potential use of Astragalus for treatment of cancer (The Journal of Urology 1991;146:486-490). Investigations conducted by institutions for cancer research indicated that in areas where selenium content in foods is high, rate of stomache cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer, etc, is low. Selenium content prevents cell damage caused by hydrogen peroxide and oxidative lipids. Antioxidation effect of selenium is 500 times that of vitamin E. Recently the immunity enhancing properties of Astragalus have led medical scientists to use it in experiments of AIDS treatment.
