    What does it do?
    The current Dang Gui formula is based on the classic Chinese herbal remedy Dang Gui Bu Xue Tang, in which Dang Gui and Huang Qi (Astragalus) are combined together. In traditional Chinese medicine, Dang Gui replenishes the blood and removes blood stasis. Dang Gui also regulates menstruation and alleviates pain. Huang Qi nourishes the Qi energy which serves as the source of blood production. The combination makes Dang Gui Bu Xue Tang famous for use in generating blood as often needed after menses or when anemia is evident from symptoms like pale face and skin etc.

    To enhance the function of Angelicae Sinensis and Astragalus, Dang Gui Pian (Wan) also contains several other Chinese herbs such as Yi Mu Cao (Motherwort) and Ji Xue Teng (Millettia Vine). Motherwort acts to invigorate the blood and regulate the menstruation cycle whereas Millettia is known to replenish and invigorate the blood. The properties are similar to that of Dang Gui. Therefore the whole formulation may achieve a stronger action both in nourishing the blood and keeping the right cycle.

    Some studies have been done and started to reveal how the formula works in modern biomedical terms. For example, Dang Gui Bu Xue Tang has been found to induce the production of erythropoietin (EPO) in cultured liver cells.1 EPO is a natural hormone produced by the liver and kidney that promotes the formation of red blood cells in the bone marrow. The same molecule is being manufactured as red blood production drugs by pharmaceutical companies under the names like Epogen and Procrit etc.

    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.
