AstraGin may also help with gut health, and you find many people saying that it may help by reducing inflammation in the gut. According to a study done on rats, Astragalus was shown to be beneficial for inflammation in the gut, especially when compared to low doses of Astragalus. Not only does Astragaluis do this, but Ginseng has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects on mice with colitis. AstraGin may also help support healthy gut flora.
AstraGin may also help with your weight loss goals. With the increased absorption of Tryptophan (53%), this precursor to serotonin may help reduce cravings as well as help with overall mood.
Another thing got note about AstraGin is that is does not hurt the flavoring of any product, which is why you actually find it in many RTDs.
