Transforms phlegm and eliminates dampness assisted by fortifying the spleen and boosting the qi, clearing heat, dispelling stasis, and dispersing stagnation
An excessively phlegm damp bodily constitution with spleen vacuity, stomach and intestinal heat, blood stasis, and possible food stagnation resulting in metabolic syndrome (a.k.a. syndrome X), diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, obesity, and high blood pressure.
Metabolic syndrome is the combination of obesity, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, and high blood pressure. This syndrome is directly correlated to the incidence of lifethreatening heart disease and stroke. In particular, the above formula addresses insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus in a person who is visibly overweight in their midsection, socalled truncal or central obesity. In terms of Chinese medical patterns, this patient has lots of phlegm, dampness, and turbidity (i.e., the adipose tissue) plus stomach heat, spleen vacuity, a strong tendency to blood stasis, and the probable complication of at least some food stagnation. Therefore, within this formula, Huang Qi (Radix Astragali), Bai Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis Macrocpehalae), and Cang Zhu (Rhizoma Atractylodis) fortify the spleen and boost the qi, move and transform phlegm and dampness, bank and supplement the middle burner. He Ye (Folium Nelumbinis) and Ju Hong (Pericarpium Citri Erythrocarpae) aromatically penetrate and loosen the center, transform phlegm and disperse fat, and mildly diffuse the upper burner. Uncooked Pu Huang (Pollen Typhae), uncooked Da Huang (Radix Et Rhizoma Rhei), Ji Nei Jin (Endothelium Corneum Gigeriae Galli), and Shan Zha (Fructus Crataegi) dispel stasis and transform phlegm, rectify the qi and disperse stagnation. Ze Xie (Rhizoma Alismatis) blandly seeps and disinhibit waters, transforms phlegm and seeps dampness. Ku Gua (Fructus Momordicae Charantiae),1 He Ye, and Da Huang clear heat from the stomach and intestines. Thus this formula treats all three burners.
In terms of pharmacodynamics, Huang Qi, Ze Xie, Bai Zhu, Cang Zhu, and Ku Gua have all demonstrated marked hypoglycemic effects. However, it is Ku Gua that has shown some of the best blood sugar lowering effects of any Chinese medicinal. To date, close to 100 in vivo studies have demonstrated the blood sugarlowering effect of Ku Gua. In one comparative study, this herb performed better at lowering blood sugar than the hypoglycemic drug tolbutamide. This fruit has also shown the ability to enhance cells uptake of glucose, promote insulin release, and potentiate the effect of insulin. In other in vivo studies, Ku Gua has been shown to reduce total cholesterol. Further, yet other trials have shown that Ku Gua can reduce adiposity (fat) and blood pressure. He Ye suppresses appetite and promotes lipolysis, the breakdown of fat; thus it promotes weight loss. In addition, it reduces lowdensity lipids (LDL) while increasing highdensity lipids (HDL). Shan Zha is also hypolipidemic, meaning that it too lowers blood lipid levels. It also improves the flow of the coronary arteries and lowers blood pressure.
This formula is a modification of Fang Ji Huang Qi Tang (Stephania & Astragalus Decoction) first found in Zhang Zhong-jings late Han dynasty Jin Gui Yao Lue (Essentials from the Golden Cabinet). The main modifications are by Wang Qi and Li Ying-shuai from the Beijing Chinese Medical University and are based on their long clinical experience in treating metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus, and insulin resistance. These modifications consist of eliminating Sheng Jiang (uncooked Rhizoma Zingiberis), Da Zao (Fructus Jujubae), and Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae) and adding Cang Zhu, He Ye. Pu Huang, Ji Nei Jin, Ju Hong, Shan Zha, and Da Huang. Bob Flaws has then substituted Ku Gua for Fang Ji (Radix Stephania Tetrandrae) due to that ingredients possible substitution by some aristolochic acid containing species and in order to make this formulas hypoglycemic effect even more pronounced. Our version is a 10: 1 extract in 500mg capsules
