Astragalus

January 28, 2019 1 min read 1 Comment

Astragalus has been prescribed for centuries as an immune system supporting herbal remedy. Studies have shown that this immune support can translate into a reduction in atopic dermatitis (eczema).

In this formulation, Astragalus is paired with Angelicae Sinensis in order to increase bioavailability.
