    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), wind, cold, and dampness are invasive to the body if one lives or works long in such an environment. They hamper the flow of Qi (vital energy) and blood and slowly weaken the function of the liver and kidney, which are fundamental to the generation of Qi, blood and Yin-Yang. Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan acts to expel wind and remove dampness, removes obstruction in Qi and blood circulation to relieve pain, invigorates Qi and nourishes the blood.

    Modern biomedical studies relate the applications of Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan to arthritis. Du Huo Ji Sheng Tang is shown to inhibit inflammation reactions, to inhibit pain in several animal studies. It may also enhance the function of microphages to clear inflammatory tissues and increase the blood circulation1.

    Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for blood nourishment, Qi invigoration, wind expelling, and dampness removal. The symptoms include cold pain, stiffness, and numbness of the low back and knees due to wind, cold, and dampness.

    Below are highlights of some published human clinical studies on Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan1.

    • Arthritis (rheumatic or rheumatoid). In one study 41 patients with the condition for 3 months to 21 years were treated, 7 were recovered, 21 showed significant improvement, 10 showed some improvement, and 3 no improvement. In another trial of 2 to 3 months treatment of 52 patients, 35 showed significant improvement.

    • Sciatica and Rheumatic Back Pain. In a trial of 80 sciatica patients, 65 were recovered and 10 improved.

    • Osteoarthritis. 14 of 24 patients were recovered after treatment of 1 week to 3 months.

    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.
