    I am currently taking several herbal supplements & have had no issues so far but I’m wondering if I’m over doing it. This is what I’m taking:

    Cinnamon/with Chromium 1000mg twice a day
    Cayenne 450mg once a day
    Cider Vinegar once a day
    Probiotic twice a day
    Fish Oil once a day
    Multi Vitamin for women without iron once a day
    Korean Ginseng 560mg once a day

    I am just wondering how you feel using these together? Does it seem to help? Where in the world did you get the cinnamon/with Chromium 1000mg.? I have never heard of it and it sounds neat.
    Myself I would like to try the ginger too.
    Thanks:
    Gail

    20 years a go while in a chinese – vietnamese food store I happened to notice the herbalist making some prescriptions. It seemed that each one had a common ingredient. When I inquired I was told that root was for the Chi. Additional questions convinced me the common ingredient ( astragalus ) helped to reinforce the immune system. I have used it extensively, it is one of the 3 tonic herbs in chinese medicine which can be used continually. The recent research indicates telomeres are repaired ( lengthened ) by astragalus. This is thought to keep immune cells healthy and functioning properly.

    You can search telomeres on Google and form your own opinion, I feel there is likely no other herb needed for general health of the immune system.

    Astragalus is a great broad spectrum immune adjuvant. However the most common causes of death, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer have chronic inflammatory disorders as an underlying cause of these diseases.

    Inflammation is an immune response. Astragalus does not address inflammatory conditions well.

    Autoimmunity is a disorder of the immune system. Astragalus does not treat autoimmunity.

    Allergy is a disorder of immune function. Astragalus does not address this condition either.

    There are many other herbs that are much more appropriate for these other types of immune dysfunction.

    Telomere length is an interesting point relative to immune tonics. Thanks.

    I agree with Gregs’ statement. That is his opinion as it is mine. I have neuralgia &I seemed to get sick more easily than others. I also have had acne & pms. I am current taking Saw palmetto, fennel & fenugreek for hair growth. Astragalus for pain & immunity issues. Black cohosh, brewers yeast, milk thistle, EPO, for pms & acne. I have seen tremendous results! Thank God. So if you disagreed dear Stephen Morrissey you can list the herbs which may help. Thank you.
