Astragalus Products

Astragalus has a long and distinguished history not only in Traditional Chinese Medicine but also among the tribes of Native American Indians and Persian Medicine. Indigo Herbs is proud to bring this herb out of the Asian sub continent and into your homes in the form of Astragalus Tincture and Astragalus Root Tea. These two products are of the finest quality available and form a part of the back bone of Chinese remedies.

There are many different species of Astragalus throughout the world but was primarily made famous by the Chinese. Used in China since around 200 BC, Astragalus was immortalised in Shennongs Materia Medica and has been used as an intricate part of Chinese Medicine ever since. It is believed to support Chi, the life force that upholds life in the body and the first defence against disease. In the Americas Astragalus was known to the Native American Indians who introduced it to the first European settlers in the late 17th century. It wasn't until the 18th century that Herbalists in the US started to investigate the properties of Astragalus and use it as a part in traditional remedies.

Native to China, Mongolia and Korea this perennial grows to about a half meter in height and loves rocky outcrops that are exposed to sun. Astragalus produces white to pale yellow flowers, similar to those of the pea family, and leaves of a pale green colour. The root part of this plant holds all of its medicinal properties and can take up to 5 years to mature. When sliced open the root is yellow, tastes sweet, and has a fibrous texture.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

To make a tea decoction from this Astragalus root add 1 - 5 teaspoons of dried root to a pan and boil in 300ml - 350ml of water on a stove for 3 - 4 minutes. Strain into a mug and serve

Serving:

1g - 5g, two or three times per day.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.

Manufacture Process

After 5 years of growth the roots of the Astragalus plants are mature and ready for harvest. Indigo Herbs Astragalus roots are harvested and identified by plant experts before the leaves and small stem parts stripped away leaving only the root. Only the best prime examples of the root are used in our Astragalus Root Tea. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are discarded through a process of elimination. The best root matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants to make sure that you get only the very finest root for your tea. This ensures that the plant is of pharmacoepial grade and is good for purpose.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

This Astragalus Powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Serving:

1-4 teaspoons up to 3 times per day.

This whole and pure Astragalus powder has been made from the finest quality grade Astragalus root. The plants have been grown to full maturity making sure the root is fully formed and at peak potency. After they have been dug up all roots are cleaned and inspected upon drying. After dehydration is complete. the roots are milled into a fine powder and tested for compliance with EU regulation.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Astragalus Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice.

Serving:

Astragalus Tincture:
Traditionally Taken:  3 - 5 ml, three times a day.
or as directed by a Herbal practitioner. 

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.
  • Packaged in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle with dropper.

After 5 years of growth the roots of the Astragalus plants are mature and ready for harvest. Indigo Herbs Astragalus roots are harvested and identified by plant experts before the leaves and small stem parts stripped away leaving only the root. Only the best prime examples of the root are used in our Astragalus Tincture. Damaged or underdeveloped roots are discarded through a process of elimination. The Astragalus root then undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

I have taken this supplement for a number of years now, and found it to be very useful in increasing my immunity to common colds and flu. My local supplier, another company, no longer stocks this product so I tried Indigo Herbs and their product arrived very quickly. The capsules look similar to those I took previously, and I am optimistic that the product will be as beneficial as the one I used before.
