Astragalus root ranks as one of the most important health tonics in the world. The root of Astragalus membranaceus is used in traditional tonic herbalism to strengthen the primary energy of the body and to strengthen all metabolic, respiratory and eliminative functions. It is a famed immune-modulator. There are currently hundreds of Astragalus products in the American marketplace. What distinguishes Dragon Herbs Astragalus is the quality of the raw material and the extraordinary processing that assures the potency of the finished product. Ron and Yanlin Teeguarden investigated many growing sources of Astragalus in China before identifying the source of the most potent Astragalus root known to man and science. With the aid and specific guidance of Professor Wang Zhengtao, Director of the Institute of Chinese Materia Medica (Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine) and chief editor of the English version of the Pharmacopeia of the People’s Republic of China, we were able to directly source Astragalus root with the highest quantity of active constituents of any source in China (Professor Wang had access to detailed data on all the sources of Astragalus in China). We obtain our Astragalus from a small county in northern China that has been a favored source of Astragalus for over a thousand years. We are very blessed to have this reliable and incredibly rich source of Astragalus. As always, the original source material determines the potential quality of the finished herbal product. “You cannot make gold from straw” remains Ron Teeguarden’s favorite production maxim.
The cutting edge herbal extraction technology known as FITT™ (Fingerprint Identical Transfer Technology™) is used by Dragon Herbs to produce Astragalus eeTee™. The biochemical fingerprint (produced by ultrasensitive HPLC analysis) of the finished granular powder is virtually identical to the HPLC fingerprint of the raw unprocessed herb. Nothing is lost in the extraction process. All of the components are maintained, including the all-important astragalosides such as Astragalosides I and IV. This extraordinarily accurate extraction is unique in the herbal industry. It assures the consumer the maximum benefit from the Astragalus root. Dragon Herbs Astragalus eeTee™ granules make a tea that has true Astragalus flavor, true Astragalus color and true Astragalus actions.
