What is a Tonic Herb? A tonic herb is an herb that is used to promote your health through restoration of deficiencies within the body. Chinese Tonic Herbs have existed for over 5,000 years and continue through the practice and teachings of Daoism.
It would be too much right now to go into details about every amazing ingredient, so instead I will focus on just one.
There has been lots of talk about Astragalus IV these days. Exactly what is this herb good for? Well feel free to read the full documented version of Astragalus IV Studied for Its Anti-Aging Potential document. A brief synopsis below:
For starters, Astragalus is considered an Anti-Aging herb. Recent studies have shown that Astragaloside IV has strong anti-aging potential by preserving telomere integrity and actively destroying free radicals that lead to cell damage. (please see all references and additional details in the document mentioned above.)
Research has found that these damaged telomeres influence the aging process and play a role in diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, osteoporosis and cancer. Our bodies have the ability to protect our telomeres with a telomere-preserving enzyme called telomerase, however most cells lack sufficient telomerase to counteract the effects of free radicals in our body.
The newest breakthrough in regards to this herb has indicated that Astragaloside IV counteracts cell aging by activating telomerase, thus increasing the rate of telomere regeneration. As much a 40% of subjects showed positive responses. A second study showed that Astragaloside IV had a strong antioxidant action by neutralizing free radicals an increasing the levels of antioxidant enzymes.
Many diseases are directly related to loss of telomere integrity and free-radical damage. An example of one disease is multiple sclerosis and dementia which are both the result of nerve and tissue destruction. Cancer is also caused by rapid replication of abnormal cells most probably created from oxidation damage.
