    What does it do?
    Rediscover the Happiness in Your Life & Breeze Through the Day, Naturally.

    Bills to pay, worrying about your financial future, work deadlines, soul-depleting commutes, marital disharmony, having very little free time for yourself, shuttling the kids back and forth, keeping up with chores … modern life is certainly full of stress. It's no wonder that rates of depression and other mood disorders are on the rise.

    Qigong, Tai Chi and meditation are effective for managing stress and relieving irritability. What's also very helpful for stress management and balancing mood is to make sure your body is getting the nutritional support it needs.

    EaseTonic™ is an all-natural herbal formula supplement that may negate the effects of modern-day stress and help provide a semblance of mental harmony. Though it may not seem like it on particularly stressful days, there is no doubt lots of beauty in your life. EaseTonic™ may help you see more of that beauty with prolonged use.

    Powerful Ancient Formula Supports Qi Circulation

    EaseTonic™ is based on one of the most well-known traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formulas, Xiao Yao San.

    From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, stress of any kind can cause stagnation of Liver 'Qi' (the circulating life force throughout the body).

    EaseTonic™ is formulated to unblock stagnant Liver Qi. Think of 'Qi stagnation' as a swamp, where no fresh water (life force) is running freely. EaseTonic™ works by breaking up the stagnation and increasing the Liver's life force.

    How does EaseTonic™ work & how do I know if I have Liver Qi stagnation?

    Collectively, the all-natural herbs in EaseTonic™ sooth the Liver to disperse depressed qi, strengthen the Spleen to nourish the Blood, and regulate menstruation.

    Chai Hu (Bupleurum root) soothes the Liver to disperse the depressed Qi. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root) and Bai Shao (White peony root) nourish the Blood and the Liver. These first three herbs interact together to resolve the root cause of Liver Qi stagnation, as well as Blood deficiency.

    Bai Zhu (Atractylodis rhizome) and Fu Ling (Poria) strengthen the middle warmer and reinforces the Spleen, thereby enriching the generation of Qi and Blood. Gan Jiang (Dried Ginger rhizome) regulates the stomach and warms the middle-warmer. Bo He (Peppermint) assists Chai Hu in soothing the Liver to disperse depressed Qi. Gan Cao (Licorice root) assists Bai Zhu and Fu Ling in replenishing Qi and invigorating the middle-warmer; it also coordinates the synergistic effects of all the herbs in this formula.

    The formula also contains Zhi Zi (Gardenia fruit), and Mu Dan Pi (Tree peony bark) which both clear heat, helpful for irritability and hot flashes.

    If you experience any of the following, your liver Qi may be stagnant:

    • chronic stress
    • depression
    • lethargy
    • irritability
    • occasional sharp pain in the sides (where the liver resides)
    • irregular menstrual cycles
    How long will it take EaseTonic™ to work?

    Noticeable, positive results can be seen in a short time, perhaps as little as two weeks, but it is recommended you take it for a minimum of four weeks.

    What other symptoms of stress can EaseTonic™ help improve?

    In addition to mood enhancement and mental balance, several other positive outcomes may be noticed with regular usage of EaseTonic™, including:

    • Improvement of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms
    • Increased energy
    • Regular menstruation

    You will feel happier without having to rely on taking a 'little blue pill' that may potentially cause side effects. If you feel stressed out, depressed, or are prone to mood swings, EaseTonic™ may help.

    Does Research Support EaseTonic™?

    Because the formula of EaseTonic™ is so popular, many clinical studies have been conducted to verify its traditional use in Chinese medicine. There were 26 randomized trials published by 2009, involving 1837 patients. In these trials, Xiao Yao San was used against placebo, antidepressants, or in combination with antidepressants. The collective results show Xiao Yao San has beneficial effects on patients with depression, either using the formula alone, or combining with antidepressants by measuring the scores of HAMD and SDS. Xiao Yao San may have the same effectiveness as antidepressants at the end point of the treatment with fewer side effects.1

    In rat models that were induced with chronic stress, Xiao Yao San was shown to mitigate depression-like behaviors.2

    EaseTonic™ may regulate menstruation by affecting the secretion of hormones. In a study in which 51 patients were involved, levels of estrogen (E2) and prolactin were significantly reduced after use of Xiao Yao Wan whereas no change was observed in the level of testosterone.3

    What is the formula composition?

    A proprietary blend of water extraction of

    Bupleurum Root Chai Hu
    Angelica Sinensis Root Dang Gui
    Atractylodes Rhizome Bai Zhu
    White Peony Root Bai Shao
    Poria Sclerotium Fu Ling
    Licorice Root Gan Cao
    Gardenia Fruit Zhi Zi
    Tree Peony Bark Mu Dan Pi

    Ginger Root Sheng Jiang
    What is Available?

    Each bottle contains 80 veggie capsules. Each capsule contains 400 mg EaseTonic™ Complex.

    Purity & Strength You Can Depend On

    EaseTonic™ is made from authentic Chinese herbs of premium quality. We use a proprietary extraction technology that optimizes the unique properties of each individual herb to maximize the extraction of active ingredients. We are able to generate extracts concentrated by a factor of 5 to 15 times, which means 1 gram of our extract is equal to the strength of 5 to 15 grams of raw herbs. This is a concentration ratio hardly achieved by others in the field.

    To further maintain the purity of EaseTonic™, we do not introduce fillers to the extract during the encapsulation process, unlike other manufacturers. Other dietary supplements commonly contain a long list of other ingredients such as Magnesium Stearate, whereas EaseTonic™ contains nothing more than the EaseTonic™ complex itself. As a result, we can deliver an adequate quantity of the formula in a small dose of EaseTonic™.

    All Natural & Vegetarian

    All of the components in EaseTonic™ are 100% natural, down to the veggie capsule shell. Even the extraction process itself is carried out with water as the solvent.

    EaseTonic™ is guaranteed to be free of pharmaceuticals. It contains no preservatives, no alcohol, no artificial flavor or color, no gluten, and no sugar. Heavy metal contents are tested for compliance with the standards set by US Pharmacopeia.

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.
