Astragalus membranaceus, the active ingredient in Provita Nutrition & Health Astragalus 9000, is primarily used in western medicine to strengthen the immune system function. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is used in treating influenza and for augmenting the qi (vital energy). Astragalus is also an antioxidant and has been shown to promote cell proliferation and survival. It inhibits free radical production, increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) and decreases lipid peroxidation. Astragalus is also called an adaptogen, meaning it helps protect the body from physical, mental, or emotional stress. It is thought to improve the immune response by potentiating the effects of interferon and it has been confirmed to enhance the immune system in vitro and in vivo investigations. Provita Nutrition & Health Astragalus 9000 provides a concentrated 20:1 extract from the root of Astragalus membranaceus, being one of the most potent products in its class.
Used in Western herbal medicine to maintain a healthy immune system. Traditionally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to tonify the spleen and augment the qi (vital energy).
