ORGANIC, HIGHLY DOSED & STANDARDISED EXTRACT
Astragalus membranaceus, also known as Huang Qi, is one of the most prominent plants used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). For our supplement we chose an extract of the Astragalus root from controlled organic farming- making it the only organic Astragalus extract available on the market. Each of our organic Astragalus capsules contains 375 mg of a highly concentrated extract (~15:1) which equals around 5625 mg dried Astragalus root. In addition, the extract was gently processed using water and not alcohol. It is standardised to 20% polysaccharides – the main active components found in the root of the plant. Unlike other Astragalus supplements, our product is free from artificial additives, non-GMO and – since our capsules are gelatin-free – also suitable for vegans.
- Astragalus membranaceus contains a variety of bioactive components including polysaccharides and saponins, providing a wide range of health benefits. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is valued as a major tonic herb.
