Before you get sick and need to stimulate & boost your Immune system, this Remedy is for you. Made with a blend of herbal extracts of Astragalus and Eleuthero or Siberian Ginseng.
Astragalus has an unusual ability to stimulate certain immune functions while depressing others. It has a tonic effect that stregthens and stimulates the immune system and works best taken before you are sick. In Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is thought to increase "chi" or life force, including viruses, so if you are already ill, it could make it worse (try Cold & Flu, Throat Coat or Anti-Viral if you are already sick).
The other counterpart to this Immune remedy is Eleuthero or Siberian Ginseng. This Ginseng realtive has been used by the Russians for decades as an adaptogen (revitalizing) herb that helps prevent upper respiratory infections and stimulates immune response to infection. Taking this herb 8-10 weeks before the beginning of the cold and flu season can reduce incidence of disease by more than 95%!
This remedy can be taken any time of the year, but works best if taken in August or September for 8-12 weeks as an herbal "vaccine".
