        The Astragalus in the new vitaminshoppe orange-colored package is not effective (It is a poor quality). I bought the new packaged (500mg) - 300 capsules and discovered that it is not the same as the old one. If you're a regular user of the vitaminshoppe brand of astragalus you'll know the great energy and wellbeing you usually experience are missing after taking the newly packaged vitaminshoppe astragalus. I'm now using a different brand.

                  I was surprised at how great and energetic i felt after taking this. I asked my acupuncturist about it and he said they used this herb as a base for a lot of their immune system support capsules.

                    For years I have been fighting a recurring urinary tract infection (uti). Echinacea would work for awhile, cranberry helped, but nothing seemed to get rid of it for very long. Then a physician's assistant recommended astragalus for infections in general, so I tried it. I can take one 500 mg capsule daily with no side effects or interference with other medications, and I haven't had a uti in months. Thank goodness!

                      I have been having stomach problems for years and it had gotten to the point where it was affecting my life. I went to two different Gastroenterologists. One just prescribed me with Dicyclomine which made the issues worse. I read about Astragalus on the Livestrong website while looking up my issues on google. After taking a 500 mg pill with my meals every day, I finally feel like I am back to normal. I don't get interrupted at work anymore multiple times having to use the bathroom, and I don't get stressed out about having to go somewhere that I may not have access to a bathroom for a long period of time. If you are having issues that have you using the bathroom and your doctor has just given you a prescribe all of IBS, then you should give this a try with each meal. I am really glad I gave this a try as nothing else had worked for me.

                          Our whole family has used Astragalus for several years. I can't say we never get sick, but we seem to stay a lot healthier than the people we work with and other children at school. Vitamin Shoppe always has the best price I can find.

                                  This stuff is fantastic. I have been taking 5-6 capsules daily as advised by a cerfied herbalist for 7 years. Anyone who needs to boost their immune system should be taking this herb. A weakened immune system due to disease or specific illness, results in other health issues. Help your body protect you.

                                      I swear by this stuff! Astragalus is a highly beneficial herb. I usually take it regularly but even when I wasnÕt, I took it for acute colds and had great results. It helps ward off colds you may feel coming on and helps to shorten the duration and severity of existing colds. I've had great success with this herb and highly recommend it as a quality antiviral/antioxidant for immune system support.
