BAZI supplements for weakness in Wood & Fire

“甲膽乙肝丙小腸,丁心戊胃己脾鄉。庚是大腸辛屬肺,壬系膀胱癸腎藏。”

Traditionally, the mitigating factor when it comes to a BAZI chart that has (signs of) weakness in Fire and Wood. There is usually the career/ industry elements that compliment it, which BAZI practitioner often dish out in their reports; there is also the spiritual and growth suggestions we can turn to. And, when it comes to nutrition and medicine, its about going back to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In contemporary times and advancement in research, this 2 western supplements (Resveratrol and CoQ10) might seem like a good alternative to mitigate this risk early.

1. Resveratrol Supplements May Help Lower Blood Pressure: Because of its antioxidant properties, resveratrol could be a promising supplement for lowering blood pressure.
2. It Has a Positive Effect on Blood Fats: Several studies in animals have suggested that resveratrol supplements may change blood fats in a healthy way.
3. It Lengthens Lifespan in Certain Animals: The compound’s ability to extend lifespan in different organisms has become a major area of research.
4. It Protects the Brain: Several studies have suggested that drinking red wine can help slow down age-related cognitive decline. This may partly be due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of resveratrol.
5. It May Increase Insulin Sensitivity: Resveratrol has been shown to have several benefits for diabetes, at least in animal studies.
6. It May Ease Joint Pain: Arthritis is a common affliction that leads to joint pain and loss of mobility. Plant-based supplements are being studied as a way to treat and prevent joint pain. When taken as a supplement, resveratrol may help protect cartilage from deteriorating.
7. Resveratrol May Suppress Cancer Cells: Resveratrol has been studied, especially in test tubes, for its ability to prevent and treat cancer. However, results have been mixed. In animal and test-tube studies, it has been shown to fight several kinds of cancer cells, including gastric, colon, skin, breast and prostate.

1. It May Help Treat Heart Failure: Heart failure is often a consequence of other heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease or high blood pressure. These conditions can lead to increased oxidative damage and inflammation of the veins and arteries.
2. It Could Help With Fertility: Female fertility decreases with age due to a decline in the number and quality of available eggs. CoQ10 is directly involved in this process. As you age, CoQ10 production slows, making the body less effective at protecting the eggs from oxidative damage.
3. It Might Help Keep Your Skin Young: Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it’s widely exposed to damaging agents that contribute to aging.
4. It Could Reduce Headaches: Abnormal mitochondrial function can lead to an increased calcium uptake by the cells, the excessive production of free radicals and decreased antioxidant protection. This can result in low energy in the brain cells and even migraines.
5. It Could Help With Exercise Performance: Oxidative stress can affect muscle function, and thus, exercise performance. Similarly, abnormal mitochondrial function can reduce muscle energy, making it hard for muscles to contract efficiently and sustain exercise.
6. It Could Help With Diabetes: Oxidative stress can induce cell damage. This can result in metabolic diseases like diabetes. Abnormal mitochondrial function has also been linked to insulin resistance.
7. It Might Play a Role in Cancer Prevention: Oxidative stress is known to cause cell damage and affect their function. If your body is unable to effectively fight oxidative damage, the structure of your cells can become damaged, possibly increasing the risk of cancer.
8. It Is Good for the Brain: Mitochondria are the main energy generators of brain cells. Mitochondrial function tends to decrease with age. Total mitochondrial dysfunction can lead to the death of brain cells and diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
9. CoQ10 Could Protect the Lungs: Of all your organs, your lungs have the most contact with oxygen. This makes them very susceptible to oxidative damage. Increased oxidative damage in the lungs and poor antioxidant protection, including low levels of CoQ10, can result in lung diseases like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
