In brief: Astragalus
Astragalus has been used in traditional chinese medicine for centuries.
Its main use has been to boost the body's immune system. But it also has been used to treat other conditions, including heart disease. That raises the question of exactly what heart benefits astragalus might offer. And if it does offer heart benefits, are there side effects you should know about?
