Plants of Astragalus membranaceus produced in Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Gansu, Heilongjiang, for the three national protected plants.Chinese herbal medicine Astragalus for leguminous herb Mongolia astragalus root, Astragalus membranaceus root, with Buqi solid form, and water, turgescence Tuo Du pus, myogenic effects.Radix astragali medicinal has been 2000 years of history, the modern study of Astragalus saponins, containing, sucrose, polysaccharide, amino acid, folic acid and selenium, zinc, copper and other trace elements.With enhanced immune function, protect liver, diuresis, anti aging, anti stress, blood pressure and wide antimicrobial effect.But the real evil Sheng Qi, dampness, stagnation of dyspepsia, ulcer beginning or collapse after Du Shang Sheng, empirical, and hyperactivity of Yang due to yin deficiency, shall be prohibited services.
Sixty patients with aplastic anemia were randomly assigned to two groups equally, both were treated three times a day, 2 mg each time through oral intake, but astagalus was given additionally to the patients in the treated group once a day via intravenous dripping.All were treated for 15 days as one therapeutic course and the whole medication lasted for more than 4 months totally, with follow-up adopted.

Astragalus polysaccharide exerts and hypoglycemic activities in type 2 diabetic rats.The present study was designed to confirm the hypoglycemic effect of Astragalus polysaccharide and to investigate its possible mechanism underlying the improvement of resistance in vivo and in vitro.We found Astragalus polysaccharide could alleviate resistance induced by high glucose.The hyperglycemia, hypolipemia, and hyperinsulinemia status were controlled with Astragalus polysaccharide therapy.Action in the liver of resistant mice was restored significantly with Astragalus polysaccharide administration.The anti-obesity effect and hypolipidemia effects of Astragalus polysaccharide were probably due partly to decreasing the leptin resistance of mice, which would positively couple with the normalization of plasma levels.

Cancer and use with chemotherapy medicine
Anthracyclines are antitumor antibiotics with significant activity against solid and hematologic malignancies.One problem preventing more widespread use has been the development of cardiotoxicity.To determine whether antioxidant agents can reduce the cardiotoxicity of anthracyclines, Astragalus membranaceus was introduced.Pre-treatment with Astragalus membranaceus significantly attenuated the daunorubicin-induced increases of reactive oxygen species, apoptosis and the secretions of LDH in cultured neonatal cardiomyocytes.
