stimulates the secretion of a powerful antiviral
chemical known as interferon, which prevents viruses
from replicating. One eye-opening study looked at 28
people over a two month period and their levels of
interferon. Compared with controls, those receiving
astragalus had a significant increase in the
production of interferon. In addition, the
interferon levels remained elevated for two months
after astragalus supplementation ended.
What I find
interesting is that, for many years now, medical
researchers have been trying to use synthetic
versions of interferon for immune system
enhancement. People with diseases like cancer and
hepatitis C are commonly given interferon, but many
are forced to discontinue using it because it
produces so many side effects. I would suggest that
it's time for researchers to focus on finding the
active constituents in herbs like astralagus that
stimulate the production of the body's own natural
interferon, instead of trying to artificially
duplicate it. More conventional studies using the
whole herb would be even better.
