Astragalus root is rich in amino acids and trace elements and contains a wide variety of valuable ingredients. Various scientific studies show the root has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions which are important for skin health and contains many healing constituents such as polysaccharides and astragaloids, which is why it also treats skin disorders including burns and its healing abilities are remarkable. Here are 7 Astragalus skin care benefits.
Astragalus skin care benefits include…
- Improve Skin Healing
- Reduce Inflammation
- Stimulate Collagen Production
- Increase Skin Elasticity
- Remove Toxins
- Improve Blood Circulation
- Regenerate Skin Cells
This fundamental herb of Traditional Chinese medicine plays a key role in fighting inflammation by lowering nitric acid levels in our body, due to its high content of polysaccharides. In addition, it controls blood flow to injured parts of the skin through metabolic regulations. These cumulatively contribute to faster healing of wounds.
The amazing herb also has potent antioxidant properties, which makes it a go-to for anyone pursuing healthy skin. The antioxidants present in the plant fight against harmful free radicals in the body and protect the skin from oxidative damage and prevent skin aging.
Astragalus increases our vitality and can transform a dull, sagging skin into firm, glowing skin. It restores the natural balance of our skin by removing toxins, stimulating collagen production, reducing inflammation, improving blood circulation and regenerating skin cells. It also prevents the breakdown of elastin protein, which helps improve elasticity, tone and texture of the skin, resulting in softer and more toned skin.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is 1 of 50 fundamental herbs. This medicinal herb has been used for thousands of years to combat stress and strengthen the immune system. More recently, Astragalus is used to support immune-compromised patients, such as those undergoing radiation and chemotherapy, and those with HIV/AIDS.
