Researchers from the University of Macau and the Hong Kong Baptist University compared the chemical composition and safety of astragalus whole ingredients extract with those of astragalus water extract and astragalus ultrafine powder. The results of their study were published in the journal Chinese Medicine.
Based on these results, the researchers concluded that WIE has more therapeutic effectiveness than UFP and WAE because it maximally retained the chemical integrity of Astragalus. They hope that WIE can be further developed as a medicinal or edible herb-derived supplement for pharmaceutical and health care applications.
