Astra 18 Diet is based on the traditional formulas of siler and platycodon combination (as researched in Japan) for weight loss, and magnolia and hoelen combination for abdominal bloating and disturbed digestion. Astragalus (huang qi) and white atractylodes (bai zhu) tonify the spleen and augment the Qi in order to dry dampness. Alisma (ze xie), as well as astragalus (huang qi) promote urination and leach out dampness. Gardenia (zhi zi) drains damp heat. Cyperus (xiang fu) and white peony (bai shao) spreads and regulates liver Qi and are used for disharmony between the liver and spleen. Since removal of dampness and phlegm is facilitated by the proper movement of blood, tang kuei (dang gui) is added to tonify and invigorate the blood. Platycodon (jie geng) opens up and disseminates lung Qi; in addition, research has found this herb reduces the cholesterol content in the liver. The seaweeds, laminaria (kun bu) and sargassum (hai zao), are included in the formula to regulate the thyroid, clear dampness, and dissolve masses. Crataegus (shan zha) reduces and guides out food stagnation. Scute (huang qin) clears heat and dries dampness. Ginger (gan jiang) warms the middle to facilitate the digestive system. Magnolia bark (hou po) promotes the movement of Qi, transforms dampness, and resolves stagnation. Pinellia (ban xia) dries dampness, transforms phlegm, and causes rebellious Qi to descend. Citrus (chen pi) regulates the Qi, improves the transportive function of the spleen, adjunct the middle, and prevents stagnation. This formula does not contain ephedra (ma huang).

For more than a decade, Health Concerns has been in the forefront of research in herbal medicine, and was the first company to manufacture herbal products in the United States for practitioners. Its founder, Andrew Gaeddert, is an herbalist, lecturer, author of numerous books on herbal medicine, and committed to improving community health. He assisted in the development of clinical trials with HIV patients in 1992, and has been on the protocol team of a study to investigate the effects of Chinese herbs on chronic diarrhea, and an anemia study sponsored by the NIH Office of Alternative Medicine.

Health Concerns formulas are created on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern biochemistry and developed by experienced practitioners such as Mr. Gaeddert, Dr.Fong Fong, and Misha Cohen. They are produced in easy-to-take tablets (preferred by many patients), targeted to treat specific disorders, and manufactured under strict quality control. And all are continually tested to ensure optimum effectiveness, potency, and maximum bioavailability.
