About Astragaloside IV :
Astragaloside IV is isolated from the root of the Astragalus Membranaceus, a staple in Chinese traditional medicine for thousands of years. It is traditionally used to enhance the immune system and to increase stamina and endurance, along with the easing of chronic gut issues.
Recent studies have suggested that Astragaloside IV improves the appearance of aging skin, since it can help promote the healthy synthesis of collagen in the skin.
UV radiation is a major catalyst for collagen breakdown in the skin, and recent studies suggest astragalus could also prevent the loss of collagen caused by excess sun exposure.
How Astragaloside IV works
Research done on human cell lines demonstrated the effects of Astragaloside IV in promoting the production of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid promotes the growth of fibroblasts, the body’s collagen-producing cells. As levels of hyaluronic acid decrease with age, the synthesis of collagen is also reduced—resulting in the clinical signs of aging skin. Simultaneously, Astralogside IV can directly stimulate collagen production by both young and aged fibroblasts.
Astragaloside IV also blocks growth factor signaling in skin cells that promotes enzymes which break down collagen
