Protect Your Family's Health Naturally With Astragalus

Astragalus comes from the root of a Chinese plant, and is one of the most useful herbs for strengthening and protecting the immune system. Astragalus is best known for its ability to protect the cells of the body from becoming invaded by the viruses and bacteria that cause colds and flu.

 

Who would benefit most from taking Astragalus?

Anyone who catches every cold and flu that goes around, or who generally feels run down, hazy, snuffly, and fuzzy, most of the time. The key to using Astragalus so that it works for you is to take it over the long term. It can safely be used over a period of months with no toxicity or side effects. Just remember to take it when you are well, and not in the first stages of a fever, cold or flu. It may not stop every infection that comes into your territory, but with regular use, it can help shorten the duration of the illness, and also increase the time between one cold and the next.

Astragalus may also be beneficial for adults who feel run down, stressed out, or who have dealt with chronic health issues that can wear you down over time.

 

Is Astragalus safe for children?

Yes, as long as you adjust the amounts to be age-appropriate. A 6 year old requires a smaller amount (1/8 to 1/4  teaspoon) than an adult (1/2 to 1 teaspoon.)

It is a safe, non-toxic remedy with a mild peanut-buttery flavor that kids seem to enjoy, or at least not scream their head off when asked (forced) to take it by mom and dad.

 

How do I use Astragalus?

The mild sweet flavor makes the powder easy to hide in other foods like oatmeal, yogurt, cereal, soup, or even macaroni and cheese. You can also blend Astragalus powder in smoothies. Because the flavor is so mild, you can get creative with how you dish it up to your family.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make Astragalus toast for breakfast

You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons almond butter (or your favorite nut spread)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 – 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon Astragalus powder

Mix the ingredients well, and make adjustments to the flavor and texture as desired. Spread a layer on toast, bagels, crackers, or English muffins and enjoy as an energizing addition to your morning.

Let us know what works for your family.

In good health,

Kita
