Dragon Herbs Astragalus Advanced™ extract is made from premium grade Astragalus roots from Northern China and contains a full range of astragalosides (Astragalus saponins) and polysaccharides, as well as all the other constituents of Astragalus root.* It is widely acknowledged that the most important range of active constituents of Astragalus root extract are its astragalosides. Astragalosides are phytochemicals that support adaptability and immunological competence. Dragon Herbs Astragalus Advanced™ has been specially produced by a cutting edge technological process to contain approximately three times the amount of total astragalosides of typical Astragalus root extract produced for the American market. Other brands of Astragalus in the American market typically contain between 2-5 mg per capsule of total astragalosides. Dragon Herbs Astragalus Advanced contains no less than 25mg total astragalosides per capsule (75mg per dose).
Of the astragalosides, one stands out as the most formidable health-supporting agent: astragaloside IV. Astragaloside IV has been actively researched for the past 20 years and continues to be the focus of intensive research. Typical Astragalus products in America contain 0.14 -1% Astragaloside IV.
Astragalus Advanced contains 5% Astragaloside IV, or 75 mg per dose. Many studies have also demonstrated that the polysaccharides from Astragalus play a role in supporting immunological functions. Astragalus Advanced capsules contain over 100mg of Astragalus polysaccharides per capsule. Compare Dragon Herbs Astragalus Advanced capsules with other brands of Astragalus for total astragaloside and astragalus polysaccharide content. If you are looking for potent Astragalus root extract at a realistic price, this is it.
