Features and Benefits
The combined effect of these herbs makes this a predominantly adaptogenic and tonic formula providing support for the immune system. Astragalus Complex is well suited to long-term use. The best effects are most often seen after 3 months of use.
Each tablet contains:
Astragalus membranaceus (Astragalus) extract equivalent to dry root 850 mg
Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) extract equivalent to dry root 750 mg (standardised to contain syringaresinol diglucosides (as eleutherosides) 600 mcg)
Echinacea purpurea (Echinacea) extract equivalent to dry root 650 mg
Dose and Usage
Adults: 1 tablet 2-4 times daily
Children 6-12 years: 1 tablet 1-2 times daily
Discontinue during any acute infectious illness or fever, since the tonic and warming properties of Astragalus and Siberian Ginseng may aggravate the illness. The risk of allergic reaction to Echinacea is very small, especially if preparations of the root are used since these are free of pollens. Echinacea is contraindicated in patients taking immunosuppressant medication (eg transplant patients). Short-term therapy only is suggested in this instance. Caution is advised in patients receiving midazolam by injection. Discontinue 7 days prior to general anaesthesia.
