If you are looking for a very comprehensive stand alone supplement, astragaloside IV may be it! With a wide range of diverse effects from robust neuroprotection to longevity effects, there is something here for everyone!
Astragaloside IV is one of the most powerful compounds contained in Astragalus membranaceus, a unique herb native to Mongolia. Since it is one of the most potent compounds in Astragalus membranaceus and given that our extract is standardized to a whopping 50% Astragaloside IV, this may be one of the most effective Astragalus membranaceus extracts currently on the market! With this in mind, if you have ever been interested in trying out a very high quality Astragalus membranaceus extract, then this is the one for you!
Astragaloside IV is a unique triterpene that comes from the herb called Astragalus, or Astragalus membranaceus. Astragalus was traditionally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for energy, stomach health and even appetite. Now it is known for its neuroprotective, telomere lengthening, skin health and cardiovascular function effects! Quite the botanical powerhouse!
The Astragalus plant has over 120 different components, which includes flavonoids, saponins and, most importantly, triterpenes like astragaloside IV. Astragaloside IV was selected as our focus compound because it is the source of most of Astragalus’ benefits and has a wide range of effects on its own. Our formulation is standardized to 50% astragaloside IV!
Let’s begin this section with the neuroprotective benefits of astragaloside IV! Astragaloside IV has been shown to protect the neurons in the hippocampus mainly by attenuating neuroinflammation and neuro oxidation. Zooming out to the rest of the brain, Astragaloside IV also appears to strengthen the blood brain barrier (BBB). The BBB is the first line of defense for the brain, thus, the better the BBB functions, the more protected our brains will be. Astragaloside IV can also protect the brain from the deleterious effects of stress. With this in mind, we can even classify Astragaloside IV as an apoptogenic agent!
Next up, longevity! Astragaloside IV has an extremely special trick up its sleeve, it can enhance telomere length. Telomeres are protective caps on the end of our DNA, which helps ensure proper DNA replication. However, the older we get, the shorter our telomeres become. Due to this, telomere shortening is often seen as a hallmark of aging, and thus is also a very important target when it comes to longevity! The issue with this strategy is that there simply aren’t that many things out there that can enhance telomere length. One popular example is L-carnosine which has a fantastic effect on telomeres but only when taken in high doses. The other example is a very big complex peptide, which cannot be taken orally. This is what makes astragaloside IV so unique, it is a fairly simple small molecule, which absorbs well and requires relatively low doses, AND it helps increase telomere length. Talk about a holy grail longevity supplement!
Many longevity supplements are also associated with users physically looking a little bit younger. This is again where astragaloside IV shines, as it has great effects on overall skin health! It achieves this mainly by regulating inflammation levels and protecting against harmful outside factors. Astragaloside IV can also help our skin heal, by enhancing keratinocyte migration. The combined effect really promotes the overall health of the skin!
Neuroprotective Stack: Astragaloside IV + Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) Capsules
Nicotinamide Riboside, or NR, is incredibly neuroprotective in addition to its NAD+ benefits! When paired with astragaloside IV, this makes for the perfect combo!
Longevity / Telomere Stack: Astragaloside IV + L-Carnosine Capsules
As we talked about above, telomeres are incredibly important but decline as we age. Like astragaloside IV, L-Carnosine directly supports longevity by lengthening telomeres. Astragaloside IV and L-Carnosine together are the perfect stack for anyone looking to promote longevity and telomere length!
Skin Stack: Astragaloside IV + White Jelly Mushroom Capsules
When looking for supplements for skin, there’s no way you could miss White Jelly Mushroom! White Jelly Mushroom is often used in topical skin care but the unique thing about this mushroom is that you can still reap incredible benefits when taking it orally. White Jelly Mushroom works by regulating oxidative stress and supporting collagen synthesis to keep the skin healthy! This is not a stack you want to miss!
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule (100mg of Astragalus membranaceus extract yielding 50mg Astragaloside IV) daily.
