Astrigalus vitamin C, commonly called vitamin C forte or astragalus, is a nutrient found in the plant Astragus longifolia.
It is used as a preservative, and it is used to protect the skins of foods from the harmful effects of pesticides, according to the US National Institutes of Health.
It also reduces inflammation and is used in skin care, cosmetic, antiseptic and nutritional products.
But a study published in the journal ACS Chemicals and Materials used the plant to treat psorias cornea inflammation, and the researchers found that astragalos vitamin c has a potent anti-inflammatory effect.
“This study demonstrates that astrakalus vitamin can effectively treat psorsiasis by increasing collagen synthesis and protecting the skin from the damaging effects of pyrrolidone sulfate, a compound that is used on food processing surfaces and in cosmetics,” the researchers wrote.
“Our results demonstrate that astraços vitamin C has the potential to be a clinically significant treatment for psorosis and psoriatic arthritis.
This work represents an important step toward the development of a clinically effective, safe and efficacious agent for the treatment of psoroid-related inflammation.”
Researchers say that the compound also may have a role in psoroidal arthritis.
In addition to providing protection from ultraviolet radiation, astragaliasc is also an antioxidant that protects the skin against free radicals, according the researchers.
“Astragas vitamin C may be able to reduce the inflammation and oxidative stress in psorsosis,” they wrote.
The researchers suggest using astragalis as an alternative treatment for people with psoroses cornea.
The research was funded by the US Department of Defense Office of Naval Research, the National Institutes for Health, the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, the American Institute of AstraZeneca, the Department of Agriculture, the European Union, and other organizations.
