Astragalus contains anti-oxidants, which protect cells against damage. Astragalus is generally used to protect and support the immune system. In the United States, researchers have looked at Astragalus as a possible treatment for people whose immune systems have been weakened by chemotherapy or radiation. In these studies, Astragalus supplements seem to help people recover faster and live longer. Astragalus may also be a mild diuretic, meaning it helps rid the body of excess fluid. There is a chemical in Astragalus which may help slow aging. Recent research has shown that this special chemical derived from Astragalus can "turn on" an enzyme called telomerase (hTERT). Telomerase acts to maintain or lengthen telomeres, which may extend the lifespan of a person's DNA.
***These vegetable-derived capsules (Vegan, Kosher and Halal certified) are filled on slow speed equipment and only pure, unadulterated herbal extract is contained in the capsules. There are no magnesium stearates, fillers, gelatin, silicates, gluten, corn, wheat, rice, yeast, starch, titanium dioxide, artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. Capsules produced with high speed equipment in herbal and dietary supplement "factories" generally contain several other ingredients, including powdered lubricants called STEARATES (which can greatly diminish an herb or supplement's absorption into the body). Check their labels! Barlowe also bottles his products in glass as he believes chemical vapors can vent from plastic containers and contaminate the contents and that glass is better for the environment.
