    What does it do?
    Bao Ji Wan was originated a century ago in Southern China where the weather is hot and humid especially during the summer and people are used to drink cooling herbal teas to clear the heat and assist digestion. The Herbal formula was said given by a Buddhist monk to someone (Mr. Li) who often offered free herbal tea to him and others. The name of the Chinese herbal tea is thus derived to indicate "help the public" in Chinese.

    Po Chai Pills consists of 16 Chinese herbs and works to relieve the exterior symptoms (e. g., chill, fever, headache), remove dampness, and harmonize the stomach in the terms of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

    People often get motion-sick during travels. The Chinese herbs Gou Teng (Uncaria), Bai Ji Li (Tribulus), and Ju Hua (Chrysanthemus flower) in Bao Ji Pian (Wan) calm the Liver, disperse the Wind, and work together to relieve headache and dizziness and thus help manage motion sickness.

    Stomach discomforts also occur often during travels. For one, motion sickness may come along with nausea, throw-up, and loss of appetite. One eats unfamiliar food at irregular hours which may upset the stomach with diarrhea, indigestion etc. Bao Ji Pian (Wan) contains a set of Chinese herbs that take care of gastrointestinal disorders and promote digestion. For example, Cang Zhu (Atractylodes) strengthens the Spleen and dries Dampness; Hou Pu (Magnolia bark) moves Qi energy and removes food stagnation; Ju Hong (Tangerine peel) strengthens the stomach and aids digestion; Mu Xiang (Aucklandia) moves Qi energy, relieves pain and harmonizes the stomach; Fu Ling (Hoelin mushroom) and Yi Yi Ren (Job's tears seeds) strengthen the Spleen and eliminate dampness by promoting urination; Shen Qu (Medicated leaven) and Gu Ya (Rice sprout) dissolve food stagnation.

    Bao Ji Pian (Wan)/Po Chai Pills is good for use in summer colds with gastrointestinal symptoms. In addition to the above Chinese herbs that address the gastrointestinal problem, the herbal formula has Chinese herbs that help relieve cold symptoms such as chill, fever, and headache. In this aspect, Huo Xiang (Agastache) transforms Dampness, stops vomiting, and disperses Wind-Cold; Bai Zhi (Angelicae Dahuricae) disperses Wind and relieves the exterior symptoms like headache; Bo He (Mint) disperses Wind Heat; Ge Gen (Kudzu root) relaxes muscles and clears heat; Tian Hua Fen (Trichosanthes) clears heat and generates body fluids.

    The property of Bao Ji Pian (Wan)/Curing Pills also makes it a choice of Chinese medicine for hangover. It may fasten the clearance of the impact under alcohol and restore the normal functions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years I've used the Shou Wu Wan Guang Ci Tang Brand for about two plus years and recently switched over to the Hairvive brand for its higher potency. I've not seen either effect my sparsely graying hairs, thus the main reason why I bought it, but it’s worked well in other ways. The two most noticeable changes; it strengthened my nails, regulates bowel movements and it may help with keeping my youthful looks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for my husband My husband have taken one bottle of Hairvive so far. His hair becomes darker. It seems works very well on his type who needs nurture Yin. I took two bottles of Hairvive, but it works slow on me. I think I need traditional type of QI BAO MEI RAN Wan, which can nurture both Yin and Yang at the same time. I suggest all of your medicine can be classified according to 《中医体质分类判定标准及中医体质分类与判定自测表》. Thank you.

I was skeptical of products that claim to grow hair. As I know and trust the people at ActiveHerb, I started to take HairVive. Now after 3 months my hair is growing back on my top. I am very happy about it and proud of ActiveHerb

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I started taking this for my hair which after 3 weeks stopped falling out. I dont know if this is what made it stop BUT my years of back aches which my Acu doc told me are due to yin deficiency are also almost gone after 3 weeks. This formula is amazing.
