This Mysterious Plant Supports Fat Loss and Reduces Inflammation – Atractylodes: Activating Greatness #20

In this episode we’re talking about the science, folklore, and incredible uses of a very special adaptogen you’ve probably never heard of called Actrylodes – incredible for inflammation, gut issues, fat loss and a lot more.

According to Acupuncture today, “White Atractylodes is one of the most commonly used herbs in traditional Chinese medicine.
White atractylodes has been given a class I safety rating by the American Herbal Products Association, meaning that it can be consumed safely when taken in appropriate doses. However, because of its diuretic properties, it should not be taken by patients who are dehydrated.”

Atractylodes has been used for indigestion, stomachache, bloating, inflammation, fluid retention, diarrhea, loss of appetite, weight loss due to cancer, allergies to dust mites, and joint pain(rheumatism).

Atractylodes Macrocephalae is considered one of the finest Qi tonics available. Used by martial artists to strengthen their legs and muscles this herb is commonly used in combination with other herbs to help build Qi and balance herbal formulas.

For example, it’s one of the main ingredients in Performance Tea’s Energy Blend – which you can get at our website here

It’s blended together with other extraordinary adaptogens like Reishi, Gotu Kola, Asiatic Dogwood, Licorice Root, Green Tea and others.
