NEW YORK — The company behind one of the world’s most popular homeopathic products is hoping to create a new kind of alternative medicine with its new product, astragalus extract.
The company is hoping the product will be available to the general public in the next year or two.
The product, which has been used for centuries, has a lot of popularity in the United States, but it’s only been available in Europe and China for more than a decade.
Astra Zeneca said it is partnering with the company behind the popular product AstraZeno and will start selling it in 2018.
Astragalus is a mixture of two different substances that are known as psilocybin and lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD.
These drugs are known to have powerful anti-psychotic effects and can be used for treating schizophrenia and anxiety disorders.
Astrapure, which manufactures Astra Zeno, said it hopes the new product will help people get better quickly, with less side effects.
