The herb of youth and sustained energy is astragalus root (Astragalus membranaceus, syn. Astragalus propinquus). It has been used in China for thousands of years as a whole body supertonic, that strengthens muscle and improves metabolic functions. Today, astragalus root extract has been recognized by scientists all around the world who have proved:
Astragalus extracts are immuno-modulating, rich in stress-reducing adaptogenic compounds that help regenerate cell function and healing.
- A potent extract contains astragaloside IV, one of astragalus’ most notable compounds proven to increase immune system response to many viruses and boost cell function.
- Some proprietary extracts contain a blend of molecules called TA-65, which have ben shown to have age-reversing effects, including halting the shortening of DNA telomeres, if not increasing telomere length, which increases the potential lifespan of cells in humans so that they can divide (reproduce) more times without senescence.
- It greatly relieves fatigue and is used by athletes all around the world for peak performance.
In my experience, astragalus provides a long-burning, happy energy with no come-down (I do not notice when it leaves my system). My body feels charged but not over stimulated, and my mind is clear.
BONUS benefits of astragalus:
- It’s a non-bitter, almost caramel-flavored herb. Whether it’s a potent extract powder, tincture, or a tea you make yourself, astragalus’ delightful flavor increases compliance (herbs only work when you take them).
- It’s relatively inexpensive compared to some other herbs. You can get Mountain Rose Herbs bulk astragalus on the cheap (get a few pounds) so you can make your own tea decoction everyday at home.
- A perennial, you can grow your own astragalus in your garden with just about any weather and climate condition.
- Since astragalus is a supertonic herb, it can be used daily and safely with cumulative youthening benefits over a long lifetime.
I use a high quality potent extract of astragalus root in my formula, Longevity in a Bottle. Fans of my work are raving about Longevity in a Bottle and are super excited for it to finally be launched.
