Description
Chinese herbal medicine Oriental Botanicals® Astragalus 8 is used to help the immune system and support a return to good health.

Features and benefits

A powerful Chinese herbal medicine to:

  • Promote a healthy immune system
  • Enhance recovery during convalescence
  • Reduce the risk of developing colds and flu
  • Enhance recovery post-operatively and following illness
  • Help restore good health

How it works

The herbs in Astragalus 8 have been used for centuries to help people strengthen their body’s defences and restore good health. Astragalus 8 is based on an ancient Chinese therapy called Fu Zheng Pei Ben. In Chinese medicine terms Fu Zheng means to rectify and support the normal, healthy vital energy (Qi) of all body systems, while Pei Ben means to strengthen the resistance mechanisms of the body especially those relating to healthy immune function.

The scientifically proven herb Astragalus is combined with seven other potent immune system herbs including Ganoderma (Reishi), Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Shisandra, Siberian ginseng, Ligustrum and Licorice to create this modern Chinese herbal medicine.

Astragalus 8 is used to assist with colds, coughs and flu (upper respiratory tract infections), chronic fatigue, and recurrent conditions such as sore throats.

For people recovering from illness, Astragalus 8 can be taken during convalescence. It is not recommended for acute infection – while the illness is upon you – rather, Oriental Botanicals® Bactevir® would be a better option, to be followed later with Astragalus 8, for recovery and immunity building.

Testimonials

This year I had intermittent colds, two bouts of pneumonia and a nasty cough that would never go away. I started taking Astragalus 8 at the tail end of the last bout of pneumonia-antibiotic treatment, and since then have been breathing better, chest congestion has gone, the cough has disappeared and generally feel 'on the mend'. For two weeks I took 2 Astragalus 8 tablets twice a day, then one tablet twice a day for a week, and now in my fourth week have reduced to one tablet, once a day. In the first 2 weeks, I woke up twice with symptoms of a new cold (nasal congestion, sore throat), but thankfully, these symptoms were gone within 48 hours and never amounted to anything. Something good is going on!
