Astragalus Root is one of many herbs known by several names. Astragalus

membranaceus and Astragalus propinquus are both Latin names for the unique

plant more commonly known as Astragalus root. Astragalus comes from the pea

family, and has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese

medicine. Astragalus herb is thought to boost overall vitality. In Chinese

medicine it has been historically used to promote healing and reduce fatigue.

Astragalus Root is part of the largest genus of the Fabaceae family, with over

two thousand members of that large and varied grouping. Astragalus membranceus

have an alternate pattern of leaves on each stem. The flowers of the herb are

built to attract the attention of pollinators, such as bees or hummingbirds.

The flowers are arranged in patterns of five sepals and five petals. The ovary

inside the herb's flower develops into what is recognizably a legume. The roots

of organic Astragalus membranaceus have rhizomes within their nodules. These

rhizomes can assimilate nitrogen from the atmosphere and put it back into the

ground where the plant is growing, which helps to replenish that important

nutrient back into the soil. You can utilize sliced Astragalus Root whole, cut

and sifted or in a powder. A tea can be made from the dried Astragalus Root.

When used appropriately, astragalus herb and extract appears to be safe and to

have few side effects. However, as with any herbal supplement, always check

with your health care provider before taking astragalus root. Pregnant or

nursing women should not use astragalus root.
