Some active components from the ASTRAGALUS root are scientifically evaluated as the most effective particles to delay cell ageing with a high expectation to add years to your life span.
Astragalus Root (Huang qi) has been used as a popular herbal tonic in China for many centuries. Some of the known active components include flavonoids, free amino acids, trace minerals and Polyphemus. In fact, it is even better than all that, as several recent clinical trials in China have shown that Australasia enhances immune function and improves survival in some people with cancer.
The key is that the research done on Astragalus suggests daily doses of 9-25 grams of the herb daily or a minimum 24 tablets per day are needed to get an acceptional result calculated to the average of 70 kg body weight.
On the other hand unlike many other medicinal herbs, Astragalus is safe for everyday use and in large doses. Therefore the only problem you have with this product is you can not realistically get a large dose enough to come to a therapeutic level. Also Australasia powders and tablets are considered to have a loss of 70% of their initial power.
In the Orient, Huang qi [Astragalus] is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a part in one's everyday diet Oriental soups are prepared with peaces of root of Astragalus that impart both their flavor and medicinal properties into the meal. After cooking has leached the whole active components, they are removed. This is the best way to include this potent tonic into your daily routine.
The second possibility is to cook Austragalus root and to add the liquid to different foods you normally use. The taste is quite nice and you can add it to soups - smoothies – tea or even coffee. The negatives here are the cooking time (6 to 8 hours) and the preservation which is maximum 3 days in the fridge.
The firm Trisystems Ltd. brought a gel capsuled product on the market with the promising name Light of Life which is based on the principles of the Nobel Prize winning team of Prof. Elisabeth Blackburn (product code TA 65) The gel capsules has and TA 65 have a 12 times higher potency than the classical Australasia root powders or tablets.
This is due to the brilliant process – as for instance by olive oil – and in case of light of life to extra supplements as hyaluronic acid which work symbiotically for the uptake of the Astragaloside IV complex.
Unfortunately due to the high patent and developing costs these kind of supplements are not so socially available. Nevertheless if we understand the real value of these products it is the right choise to buy them to age younger.
