How it works
Astragalus: traditionally used to reduce the frequency of the common cold
In TCM, astragalus is one of the most frequently used immune tonic herbs, and is traditionally used to support the immune system in fighting illness to decrease the frequency of the common cold. The average adults in Australia can catch from two to four colds in the space of a year.1
Siberian ginseng: traditionally aids recovery after illness
Most adults recover from the mild symptoms of a common cold within a few days of catching it.1,2 However for some, the recovery time may extend to a week or even more.1,2
Siberian ginseng is included in Oriental Botanicals Astragalus 8, based on its traditional use in Western herbal medicine for aiding with recovery from illness.
Stressed, tired and run down?
Siberian ginseng supports a healthy stress response in the body and is traditionally taken in Western herbal medicine for the relief of tiredness.
Astragalus is traditionally used as an adaptogen in TCM, which is the term used to describe herbs that help the body adapt to stress. It also enhances vitality, according to traditional use in TCM.
