'Researchers from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine have determined in a multi-center, randomized, double-blind clinical study that a Chinese herbal formulation significantly treats nonalcoholic fatty liver cirrhosis.
The researchers studied 224 patients with liver disease from six hospitals – each affiliated with a university. The study was conducted for 24 weeks. The patients were given either a placebo or a five gram sachet of the herbal formula called Jiang Zhi Granule for the six month test period.
The doctors then examined the patients with a test called the Liver-spleen volume analysis. This is performed using computed tomography.'
