Seven Springs Trail Astragalus Extract Blend
Posted by Ryan Wade on Jun 21, 2016
We did not set out to create this product, but after searching for a quality Astragalus Extract for our own use and coming up empty handed, it was obvious that to meet our requirements we were going to have to make it ourselves.
After creating what we were looking for (a clean and organic product, a potent broad spectrum extract, isolated Astragaloside IV), it still took some time experimenting with the ratios of extracts and ensuring that each serving would have enough Astragaloside IV to make it relevant (here we are targeting Astragaloside IV because of the telomere and telomerase research done on it).
Once we decided on a final blend, we then used the product ourselves for about a year before deciding to share it with our customers and we are beyond excited to now offer it in our store.

The name Seven Springs Trail Astragalus Extract Blend was chosen as both a reference and a reverence to the long history of the indigenous people of the Central California Coast, and the vital sustenance fresh water brings to all—humans, animals, plants, and beyond. More specifically, seven springs is the actual location of seven fresh, artisanal water springs in the Santa Cruz Mountain of California.
