Fluid Reduce

Fluid Reduce

  • Fluid Reduce (Ling Gui Zhu Gan Tang)

    Herbal CreaturesFluid Reduce is a high potency formula containing herbs traditionally used in the treatment of regulating fluids.

    A blend of herbs used for:

    • Hypochondric and epigastric bloating
    • Shortness of breath, palpitations
    • Coughing
    • How it works

      Fluid Reduce is based on a Chinese herbal formula called Ling Gui Zhu Gan Tang, used to treat a group of symptoms resulting from a weakened digestive function, especially in the aftermath of chronic diarrhoea or laxative use. If digestive function is weak, accumulation of food and pathogenic fluids begin to have an impact on other body systems.

      Human studies and research into the effectiveness of this formula have seen positive results in the treatment of coronary cardiac failure (in combination with other formulas), nephrotic syndrome and hydronephrosis. In veterinary medicine, this formula has been primarily used to treat oedema secondary to chronic renal failure, nephrotic syndrome, amyloidosis, hydronephrosis, pulmonary oedema secondary to heart failure, hydrothorax, pericardial effusion and ascites secondary to hepatic, cardiac or renal disease.
