Astragalus: Immune System Booster

It's that season - time for colds & the flu. Everywhere you turn you're scared shitless about catching it. You hear horror stories and spray antibacterial products on everything. You're afraid to kiss your mother because you heard one of her co-workers' sons had the flu. You get it. One of the key herbs in boosting immunity is called Astragalus. It's used in traditional Chinese Herbal medicine to also help with intestinal illnesses, night sweats, improving overall energy, cardiovascular disease and blood pressure issues. But it's mostly about improving immunity function as it has antibacterial properties that ward against illness. Might not be a bad supplement to invest in this season. More about Astralagus here.
