To be used as a supplement to a balanced diet when the liver has difficulty metabolizing fat and when cholesterol levels are too high.
From the Western scientific perspective the fate of cholesterol held in LDL carriers is to be ingested by macrophages in arterial walls and ultimately to end up as plaque. In this process the arteries become less compliant and smaller in diameter leading to higher blood pressures to achieve normal blood flows. The fate of cholesterol in HDL carriers is to be taken up and metabolized by the liver. HDLs have been shown to scavenge cholesterol from LDL carriers and plaques. Saturated fat in the diet prevents normal HDL uptake and activity and is indicted as the main cause of atherosclerosis in normal individuals. Maximizing the liver's ability to produce HDL carriers and to maximize their function in the blood can reverse some of the plaque development and high blood pressure in many individuals.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine consuming a heavy and fatty diet may result in dampness blocking the Middle Burner which negatively affects the dispersing and discharging function of the liver. It is shown that this disorder results in elevated levels of blood cholesterol.
The target of this formula is the individual with high cholesterol levels who also has high endogenous fat levels in their liver. This formula has been used in acute care clinical settings in China to reduce liver fat levels as well as circulating cholesterol levels.
While this formula very effectively acts on cholesterol metabolism to bring about better HDL/LDL ratios and better overall blood cholesterol readings, it is specially designed to also reduce liver fat. Changes in exercise and diet also have powerful consequences for changing endogenous fat and cholesterol readings.
