I thought I would copy this message from Health Concerns in its entirety. As many of my patients know, I’m a huge fan of Astra Essence and have been taking it for years. It not only helps to stave off illness but counters the aging process. The main ingredient, astragalus, has been linked to healthier telomeres, a measure of the aging process.
“Our focus in September is on our effective TCM formulas. This week, we look at Astra Essence™, Zuo Gui Wan/You Gui Yin / Restorative Herbal Supplement.
Chinese Therapeutic Effects: Tonifies kidney essence (jing); tonifies yin and yang; tonifies Qi and blood.
Astra Essence™ maintains vitality and promotes longevity. The formula is a combination of tonic herbs to nourish essence and astringent herbs to prevent loss of essence. Emphasis is placed on balanced kidney tonification. Essence tonics are taken in order to slow aging and to prevent deterioration of body functions for those who are under constant stress. The formula is useful in our society where many show signs of premature aging or kidney deficiency from fast-paced lifestyles.
Astra Essence™ is useful in a variety of cases involving individuals with demanding schedules – students, executives, athletes, etc. and in patients complaining of chronic fatigue. Excellent results have also been reported for impotence and infertility.
I hope you find this formula as useful in treating your patients as so many of our customers do.
