How Astragalus Helps Improve Immune Health

How Astragalus Helps Improve Immune Health

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus), commonly known as huáng qí or Mongolian milkvetch, is a flowering plant that is one of the 50 fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese herbal medicine.

Astragalus can help increase immunity by stimulating the immune system.

In a review of several studies, a 2 month study with 14 health volunteers showed astragalus significantly stimulated the production of white blood cells which are used by the immune system to help fight infections. Another study reported that astragalus increased the production of antibodies by the immune system.1

A 2012 study also shows astragalus extract can help increase immune response through the activation of macrophages.2

Multiple other studies have found astragalus may be able to act as an antiviral against several different viruses including hepatitis B.3,4,5
