Chinese Herbal Formula For CKD (Not Available in U.S.)
This video is about a Chinese herbal formula for ckd, and how it helps chronic kidney disease. It’s not easily available in the U.S, so I’m giving the information to give you an option if it’s something you want to look into. For people that are outside of the U.S, especially in china where the product was made, you’ll be able to find it much easier than us in the United States.
This is coming to you from the Evidence-Based Complementary Alternative Medicine Journal that’s October, 2021: Efficacy and Safety of Chinese Herbal Formula Granules and Treated Chronic Kidney Disease Stage Three a Multi-Center Randomized Placebo-controlled Double-blind Clinical Trial.
When a study is structured in this way it’s very powerful and means a lot. It has more weight to it and more validity to it. So traditional Chinese medicine is Chinese medicine that uses a lot of herbal formulas and these granules are a variety of powdered herbs. This formula was 10 different herbs that are put into really small balls like compressed into a tablet form and they gave people with stage three chronic kidney disease these tablets. It was about 10 to 20 a day and they gave it to them for 24 weeks. Every four weeks they measured kidney function.
Now at the end of the period the end of 24 weeks people had the same amount of protein in the urine which unfortunately didn’t change. We wish it did, but it didn’t. What they did have were lower creatinine and higher gfrs and when they took this herbal formula supplement, they did it in conjunction with medication meaning they used a low protein diet, they used the standard medications for blood pressure. The reason I’m saying that is because you never want to do something by itself. When you do them both together and combine them you get a much better outcome.
This Chinese herbal formula, I looked for it, but I couldn’t find it in the U.S. We’re going to give the link. I have reached out to this company through email but haven’t heard anything back now being in the united states it’s going to be harder to get this. If you’re in china okay it’s gonna be much easier. If you’re in that region, I’m sure you can get it much more easier and it’s much more available. You’d want to go to that company website contact them see where it’s available. It’s just an option. I wish it was more available in the U.S., but unfortunately it’s not. At least it’s something that you can look into if you want if you want to do something else but this would be a good idea for anybody who has easy access to it.
One thing about the study was that it didn’t change anything with hyperkalemia. There was no high potassium levels to watch out for and just a good supplement to use with a good study behind it.
