    What does it do?
    From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao San formula is indicated for conditions in which external pathogenic wind has disrupted the flow of Qi energy in the channels or meridians and thus obstructs the clear Yang Qi and causes pain. This syndrome closely resembles what is often referred to as the common cold. Fever, chills, nasal congestion and/or dizziness may also be present along with a predominant headache. Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian has both warming and dispersing actions, which effectively drives wind from the head, clears heat, relieves ache and prevents the condition from penetrating deeper into the body.

    Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian may also be used for certain biomedically defined conditions such as migraine, tension headache, rhinitis, upper respiratory tract infection in which headache is a prominent symptom, acute or chronic sinusitis or neurogenic headache.

    Although Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian may be used for a wide variety of headaches, it should not be used in cases which arise from hyperascendant Liver Yang or from an overall deficiency of Qi (energy) or blood. Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian is most appropriate in cases of acute headache which present with signs of external wind invasion which include a thin, white tongue coating, superficial pulse and fever and/or chills due to exogenous pathogenic wind. Traditionally, this formula is to be taken with green tea.

    Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian is an elegant formula composed of 8 medicinal herbs. Here, a large dose of Bo He (Mint) acts as the chief herb to disperse wind, clear heat and benefit the eyes. Chuan Xiong (Sichuan Lovage root), Bai Zhi (Dahurian Angelica root) and Qiang Huo (Notopterygium) act together as deputies to further disperse wind and relieve headache. This combination of deputy herbs reveals the mechanism by which Chuan Xiong Cha Tiao Pian is effective at relieving headache from any part of the head. Each of these 3 medicinals clears pain from a different area of the head, based on the meridian(s) each herb acts upon and the corresponding location of those meridians on the head: Chuan Xiong works on the temples and vertex (lesser Yang and terminal Yin). Bai Zhi works on the forehead (Yang brightness) and Qiang Huo works on the occipital region (greater Yang). Chuan Xiong is one of the most essential herbs in the Chinese pharmacopeia for the treatment of headache, and is particularly effective when used in combination with Bai Zhi as it is here. Chuan Xiong has been extensively studied for its effect on the circulatory system in relation to migraine headache, Alzheimer's disease and other neurological disorders.1

    Jing Jie (Schizonepeta) and Fang Feng (Siler) are an important Chinese herb pair used to dispel wind and release the exterior. Both herbs also relieve pain and body aches. Gui Zhi (Cinnamon) is added to the formula to further clear and warm the channels and relieve pain. Gui Zhi also has antibacterial and antiviral effects.

    Gan Cao (licorice root) harmonizes the actions of the other 7 herbs. Traditionally, this herbal formula is taken with green tea which clears heat and thereby moderates the warming and drying nature of the formula.

    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.
