Astragaloside IV Capsules
CAS Number: 84687-43-4
Astragaloside IV (ASIV) is a glycoside (sugar-bound molecule) from the astragalus plant. Astragalus is used in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM); like many “traditional” plants, the actual effects from the dried or whole plant are not strong enough pharmacologically to merit scientific inquiry for modern medicinal use. However, the glycoside astragaloside IV holds potential to heal wounds, improve immune function, assist in recovery from cardiovascular events, reverse endothelial dysfunction due to hyperaminoacidemia (a major contributor to cardiovascular disease), promotes mesenchymal stem cell proliferation in vitro, reduced induced left ventricular hypertrophy in a rat model, inhibited proliferation of basal-like human breast cancer lines in vitro, and attenuated 6-OHDA induced loss of dopaminergic neurons in a culture.
