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). Other than soothing allergic and inflamed skin, Astragalus has been shown to protect the skin against photoaging associated with UV radiation. In this formulation, Astragalus is paired with Angelicae Sinensis in order to increase bioavailability.
