Were you looking for information about Astragalus? Astragulas is a common misspelling of astragalus.
 
Astragalus, an herb traditionally used in Chinese medicine, is commonly used for treating and prevention various medical conditions (such as the common cold, fibromyalgia, and hepatitis). The supplement is often claimed to stimulate the immune system, and early laboratory studies indicate that it might work as an antibiotic and also improve sperm mobility. The risk of developing side effects with this supplement appears to be low, but as with any drug or supplement, side effects are possible.
