    What does it do?
    Urination is the voiding of urine from the urinary bladder through the urethra to the outside of the body. This is normally a smooth process unless it is disturbed by conditions such as urinary track infections (UTIs), prostate enlargement, etc. In cases of UTIs, for example, bacterial infections at urinary track locations like bladder, urethra, or kidneys can cause painful urination. UTIs happen more often in younger and sexually active women. Ba Zheng San is an excellent herbal remedy used to maintain the urinary track health and keep urine flows.

    The condition Ba Zheng San deals with is called "Lin Syndrome" (淋证) from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Lin Syndrome is characterized with painful and dribbling urination and is classified into multiple types depending on whether the urine has blood, stones, or murky appearance etc. The most common cause of Lin Syndrome is the damp heat of the bladder. Accordingly, the main treatment principle is to clear Heat, remove Dampness and promote urination.

    Ba Zheng San has successfully implemented the principle since its invention 900 years ago. Many clinical studies have established its value in UTIs. For example, Ba Zheng San was used to treat 67 cases of pyelonephritis, of which 54 were recovered with no display of symptoms and a clean urine lab result. In another study of 105 acute Lin syndrome cases, 67 showed a complete recovery and 28 significant improvement after a personalized application of Ba Zheng San. The time to see the results varies from 3 to 10 days in yet another study.1

    Ba Zheng San is most suitable for the Lin syndrome presenting with urgent and burning urination, little volume of urine that is dark and turbid, heavy feeling in the lower abdomen, thirsty mouth, red tongue with yellow fur, and slippery forceful pulse.

    UTflow™ is composed of 9 Chinese herbs. In the formula, Qu Mai (Herb Dianthi), Bian Xu (Knotweed), Mu Tong (Caulis Akebiae), Hua Shi (Talcum), Che Qian Zi (Plantain Seed), and Deng Xin Cao (Medulla Junci) clear Heat and Dampness, promote urination, and unblock painful urinary dysfunction. They work synergistically to achieve the maximal strength. Zhi Zi (Gardenia Fruit) drains Damp Heat from Triple Burner through the urine and Da Huang (Rhubarb) drains Damp-Heat through the stool. Zhi Gan Zao (Licorice) harmonizes the action of other cooling and purging herbs and protects the stomach.

    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.

    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.
