Bu Zhong Yi Qi Pian (Wan)
(QiVive™)
An All Natural Chinese Herbal Supplement
Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan (Bu Zhong Yi Qi Pian, Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang, QiVive™, 补中益气片) is a highly regarded ancient Chinese herbal formula made from a combination of Astragalus and Ginseng. Today, it is widely used to replenish the body's Qi and to promote physical strength. In traditional Chinese medicine, Qi is the principle of vital energy. A diminished Qi can be shown as fatigue, tiredness, shortness of breath, or organ prolapse. Qi weakness can be caused by age, stress, overwork, and chronic illnesses.

    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can nourish the spleen and promote Qi due to the Qi deficiency. The central Qi provides the vital energy of the body including the internal organs and physical activities. When Qi is weak, the organs like stomach, uterus, and rectum fail to support themselves and thus droop; the body loses the physical strength and shows fatigue, tiredness, weakness, laziness of speech.

    Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for replenishing Qi, elevating the spleen Yang to cure drooping; for fatigue and lack of physical strength; for prolapse of internal organs such as rectum prolapse, uterus prolapse, and stomach prolapse.

    Modern biomedical studies have found many beneficial actions of Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan that support its traditional use. Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can increase the activity of natural killer cells in the blood and increase the serum level of interferon-gamma (IFN-g), which are crucial in our body's defense against pathogens, and thus Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan enhances the immune function and protects the body from infections of bacteria and virus and from immmunosuppression due to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or stress in animal and human2-5. In controlled human trials, Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can significantly improve the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome after 8 to 12 weeks of administration, including the intensity and frequency of fatigue occurrence. When Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan is applied as adjuvant therapy of cancer patients before and after chemotherapy and surgery, the patients showed improved fatigue and tiredness, improved appetite and diarrhea, better spirit and recovery compared to the controls.

    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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy As the product says, promotes hair growth, well it is not doing that. I'm still losing hair and only used this product because my acupuncturist said to and it is not working. I was so hoping it would.
