Sacred Hair Growth Ingredient “Astragalus.”

This Sacred Hair Growth Sequel video is addresses the Astragalus  ingredient in more detail. Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. It was often combined with other herbs to strengthen the body against disease.

Click Here for Larger Pop-Up Player!

Astragaus is called an adaptogen, meaning it is thought to help protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress. Astragalus is an active ingredient of Sacred Hair Growth.

Astragalus may help protect the body from diseases such as cancer and diabetes. It contains antioxidants, which protect cells against damage caused by free radicals, byproducts of cellular energy. Astragalus is used to protect and support the immune system, for preventing colds and upper respiratory infections, to lower blood pressure, to treat diabetes, and to protect the liver.

Astragalus has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is sometimes used on the skin for wounds. In addition, studies have shown that astragalus has antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system, suggesting that it may help prevent colds.

In the United States, researchers have looked at Astragalus as a possible treatment for people whose immune systems have been weakened by chemotherapy or radiation. In these studies, Astragalus supplements seem to help people recover faster and live longer. Research on using Astragalus for people with AIDS has produced mixed results.

Recent research in China suggests that, because Astragalus is an antioxidant, it may help people with severe forms of heart disease, relieving symptoms and improving heart function. At low-to-moderate doses, Astragalus has few side effects. However, it does interact with a number of other herbs and prescription medications. Astragalus may also be a mild diuretic, meaning it helps the body get rid of excess fluid.

Medicinal Uses and Indications:

Astragalus has been used for the following:

  • Adaptogen — protects the body from stress and disease
  • Anemia — One early study suggested astragalus may improve blood counts in people with aplastic anemia. But the study was poorly designed, so more research is needed.
  • Colds and influenza — In TCM, astragalus is used as part of an herbal combination to prevent or treat colds, although TCM theory holds that, in some cases, it may make colds worse. Evidence in animal and laboratory tests suggests that it may act against viruses like the ones that cause colds.
  • Diabetes — Astragalus appears to lower blood sugar. More studies are needed to know whether it can actually help treat diabetes.
  • Fatigue or lack of appetite from chemotherapy — Some studies suggest astragalus may help reduce side effects from chemotherapy. The studies have not been well designed, however. More research is needed.
  • Heart disease — Several studies suggest that astragalus may act as an antioxidant and help treat heart disease. However, most of the studies were not well designed, so more research is needed.
  • Hepatitis — A few studies have used a combination of herbs containing astragalus to treat hepatitis. Results have been mixed.
  • Kidney disease — Astragalus may help protect the kidneys and may help treat kidney disease, although the research is preliminary. More studies are needed.
  • Seasonal allergies — One study found that astragalus may help reduce symptoms in people who have allergic rhinitis or hayfever.

Available Forms:

Astragalus root may be available in a variety of forms:

  • Tincture (liquid alcohol extract)
  • Capsules and tablets, standardized and non-standardized
  • Injectable forms for use in hospital or clinical settings in Asian countries
  • Topically for the skin

How to Take It:

Pediatric

There is not a lot of scientific evidence about giving Astragalus to children, so ask your doctor first. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, you should not give Astragalus to a child with fever because the herb may make the fever last longer or grow stronger. Any dosage should be determined by your doctor.

Sacred Hair Growth Ingredient “Fleece Flower Root.”

This Video is about Fleece Flower Root, and address the individual ingredient in more detail.

Sacred Hair Growth is 100% natural product, as there is no chemical process behind this extract, and it contains only powder from the Fleece-Flower root, one of the most prominent herbs in Chinese medicine, believed to be bestowed with potent anti-aging and rejuvenating properties.

Click Here for Larger Pop-Up Player!

Fleeceflower (Polygonum multiflorum) is part of the Polygonaceae family, which includes rhubarb and buckwheat. It is also known as Fallopia multiflora, Chinese cornbind, Flowery knotweed and He-Shou-Wu.

Native to the Far East, it is a strong climber with red-brown stems, light green leaves and clusters of small, pink-tinted flowers. Its large roots can weigh up to 6 lbs.

The roots are very important in Chinese traditional medicine and have been used there at least since the Tang Dynasty (713 A.D). The heavy tubers resemble the shapes created by mandrake root and many of the traditional beliefs about Fleeceflower Root (or He-Shou-Wu, as it is known in China) relate to the appearance of the material. The roots are rich in starches.

Fleeceflower root has been given to people suffering from long-term degenerative illnesses to improve vitality and appetite, used to help reproductive and circulatory health and for weakened liver and kidneys. Ancient Chinese texts also record its laxative properties.

The Chinese name comes from a legend of Mr. Ho, who, according to the story, was advised by a monk to eat the root for his impotence and for his graying  lackluster hair. After Mr. Ho followed the monk’s advice, not only did he father several children and live to 130 years, but his hair turned from grey to black. The Chinese name literally means ‘Ho’s black hair’ (shou = head, wu = black).

Along with ginseng, Fleeceflower Root is one of the most prominent herbs in Chinese medicine, believed to be bestowed with potent anti-aging and rejuvenating properties. It is heavily connected with Taoist immortality recipes and rituals. Fleeceflower Root contains rhein, a compound known to cause laxative effects. Externally, the herb has been used in ancient Chinese medicine for alopecia.

We make our infusion by adding Fleeceflowers to boiled water.

Fleeceflower root is rich in lecithin, which makes it a beneficial for use in cosmetics. Lecithin, in its isolated commercial form, is used as a granulated additive. Its thickening, emulsifying and antioxidant properties make it a widely used ingredient.

Lecithin softens the skin and helps the absorption of other ingredients. It is a highly conditioning and moisturizing ingredient for hair, which is why it’s used in so many of our hair conditioners and masks. Adding a natural ingredient to the formula also reduces the need for synthetic ingredients and allows for more sophisticated blends of raw materials. Fleeceflower Rroot is an active ingredient of Sacred Hair Growth.
