How Does Astragalus Affect Penis Enlargement?
General effects of astragalus include the possibility of fighting viral infections such as HIV, slowing the aging process of cells, help fight cancer, and provide benefits to the immune system. These are all astounding claims for a common herb, but most of these claims have not yet been substantiated, although there is some reason to continue research in this area as a few studies have shown some promising results.
But all-in-all, there seems to be little evidence of any effects on the body that can aid penis enlargement, despite it’s use in some male enhancement products. Perhaps there is confusion since astragalus has been shown to increase the thickness of the “submesothelial cell layer in the peritoneum of the PD rats.”
Astragalus MAY Help Reduce Sexual Exhaustion
Some studies suggest that the cell-growth promotion, having to do with DNA polymerase chains, can improve recovery after states of exhaustion. This might help in the bedroom, but has little effect on increasing penis size.

Do We Recommend Taking Astragalus?
No. Although there are not negative side effects of taking this supplement, and in fact there may be some positive health effects involved, it seems like it would contribute very little towards penis enlargement.
