How Astra 18 Diet Works

Astra 18 Diet by Health Concerns Chinese Herbs is based on the traditional formulas of siler and platycodon combination (as researched in Japan) for weight loss, and magnolia and hoelen combination for abdominal bloating.

Astragalus (huang qi) and white atractylodes (bai zhu) tonify the spleen and augment the Qi in order to dry dampness. 

Alisma (ze xie), as well as astragalus (huang qi) promote urination and leach out dampness. 

Gardenia (zhi zi) drains damp heat.

Cyperus (xiang fu) and white peony (bai shao) spreads and regulates liver Qi and are used for disharmony between the liver and spleen. Since removal of dampness and phlegm is facilitated by the proper movement of blood, tang kuei (dang gui) is added to tonify and invigorate the blood. 

Platycodon (jie geng) opens up and disseminates lung Qi in addition, research has found this herb reduces the cholesterol content in the liver.

The seaweeds, laminaria (kun bu) and sargassum (hai zao), are included in the formula to regulate the thyroid, clear dampness, and dissolve masses. 

Crataegus (shan zha) reduces and guides out food stagnation.

Scute (huang qin) clears heat and dries dampness.

Ginger (gan jiang) warms the middle to facilitate the digestive system. 

Magnolia bark (hou po) promotes the movement of Qi, transforms dampness, and resolves stagnation.

Pinellia (ban xia) dries dampness, transforms phlegm, and causes rebellious Qi to descend. 

Citrus (chen pi) regulates the Qi, improves the transportive function of the spleen, adjunct the middle, and prevents stagnation.
