    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of pathogenic influences. The attacks first invade the body's surface and the body reacts with symptoms like fever, cough, and headache. If not halted they further invade the interior of the body and cause severe illness. Pathogenic influences are defined in modern medical terms as bacteria and viruses.

    Cold Signoff™ works to halt the invasion of pathogenic influences and relieves the associated symptoms. It is mainly used for the common cold. Cold Signoff™ is most effective when taken at the first signs of cold such as sore throat, runny nose, cough, nasal congestion, and headache.

    Modern studies suggested a pharmacological action of Cold Signoff™ that is consistent with its use for cold relief1. For example, it inhibits the growth of many strains of bacteria and viruses; it reduces fever in animal models; it inhibits inflammation.

    Cold Signoff™ is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for relieving the exterior symptoms and clearing away toxins. The symptoms may include wind-heat type common cold, fever with headache, cough with dry mouth and sore throat.

    Cold Signoff™ is also used to support the body's natural defense. In a clinical study involving 1480 people, only 2.6% of people who took Yin Qiao Jie Du Wan for 6 weeks developed flu whereas 17.55% people in the control group developed flu 1. We recommend to use Cold Signoff™ when an outbreak occurs in the workplace or loved ones.

    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.
