This extract is so concentrated, I could only take it once in a while, as it gives positive results but at the same time influences weirdly. I liked it much more in the ARM formula of this brand, as a combination of ingredients, but not a 100% extract. Although I use ARM at most 2 times a week. The extracts are too intensive for me but effective and I feel improvements with my adrenals and overall strengthening

Astragalus is a large genus of around 3,000 species belonging to the legume family Fabaceae. This plant is a native to the temperate regions in the Northern hemisphere. Common names include milkvetch (most species), locoweed (some species in North America) and goat’s thorn. Astragalus root is a staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it is also known as Huang Qi. It is also used as a “Qi tonifier” in the oriental system of medicine. The root is the only part of the plant used medicinally and is usually harvested from 4-year old plants. Herbalists call astragalus an “adaptogen”. Polysaccharides are the most important functional constituents in Astragalus and responsible for the antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities of this herb. This astragalus is an easy to take - small capsule. The taste is normal and this is the only brand that has a 12:1 extract.

Paradise is a good solid brand. I use Astragalus for cold and flu because it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Also, it is good during the fall-winter season (immune system, colds and upper respiratory and liver). I alternate astragalus with oregano oil every 2 weeks. But it may be used daily for up to 3 months. This is 12:1 root extract, so it is stronger than other ones.

The most provocative reason for my using Astragalus are the Chinese finding this root useful as a "strong medicine", three-thousand years ago. Chinese medicine has become more popular and apparently beneficial in last ten years, five in particular. Dr. Andrew Weil once explained he would take Astragalus before plane trips to minimize change of sickness in the rather dirty, somewhat filtered air you breathe in flight. Great application. I know a number of elementary school teachers who are constantly being groped by kids who've just sneezed and wiped it all into their hand - then they need to hold the teacher's hand. Several have told me they 'get sick less' after starting Astragalus. That was good enough for me. I began using Astragalus during flu season, when I'd been exposed to someone sick, using 400 mg daily as preventative, and 3-4K mg when trying to fight-off coming down with something. After one of my discovery treks to my local health-food store, I was brought up to speed on the full spectrum 12:1 Paradise Astragalus. This means ONE capsule of Paradise Astragalus is EQUIVALENT to 3k mg "whole root". Essentially one capsule of very pure Astragalus equivalent to 3-4 capsules 1000mg. In changing to Paradise Brand, I've noticed no difference in efficacy, and am saving some money at the same time. Not bad. Also feeling good about getting higher quality of the root I elect to use for continued good health.

This is strong extract of astragalus, known to extend telomeres, even better than cycloastragenol (TA-65) or astragaloside 4. Whole spectrum astragalus extract can, maybe, help you to overcome Hayflick limit and make you a supercentenarian.

This one is really amazing for boosting energy and stress support, but I get severe insomnia; it is very stimulating. Haven't yet tried taking half capsule because they are really small and I underestimate them every time haha.

Clean ingredients, I actually remove the capsule and use only the powder from inside and mix it with other herbs, but that's only me.

I was taking other brand of Astragalus product until I found this one. This is the only brand that has the highest concentration of 12:1 extract. And it is made without fillers.
