    What does it do?
    In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Spleen plays a critical role in transforming the body' nutrients into Yin, Yang, and Qi which are the fundamental energies for life. A strong Spleen can supply the body with abundant Yin, Yang, and Qi energy that may be present at low levels after birth. When the Spleen function is weak, digestion is compromised. When digestion is not working properly, the body may display intestinal problems and be in poor health.

    A common Spleen problem is insufficient Yang energy. Spleen Yang deficiency often comes with the Yang deficiency of the Stomach as well. As a result, one may experience coldness in the Stomach, abdominal pain, abdominal distension, diarrhea, vomiting, and coldness of the limbs. For example, one cannot drink cold milk or ice water, otherwise diarrhea may occur. The abdominal pain can be alleviated after the abdomen is pressed with hands or covered with a warm water bag.

    Fu Zi Li Zhong Tang is a very popular Chinese herbal medicine used to reinforce the Yang energy of the Spleen and Stomach. This Chinese medicine is composed of several herbs that strengthen the Yang energy and the Spleen. Among them, Processed Aconite Root is perhaps the best-known Chinese herb for restoring the Yang energy and dispersing Cold. Ginger is acrid and warm in nature and disperses Cold. Codonopsis replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen. Atractylodes is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and removes Dampness. Licorice tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.

    Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for warming the middle-Jiao and strengthening the Spleen. The Chinese herb is used for the insufficiency and coldness of the Spleen and Stomach, abdominal pain and coldness, vomiting and diarrhea, cold hands and feet.

    In recent years, Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan has been studied for its application to digestive disorders such as gastritis, enteritis, and gastric ulcers that are diagnosed with modern technologies and at the mean time display the described TCM patterns with satisfactory results. For example, in one study, Fu Zi Li Zhong Tang was used as the basic TCM formula to treat 28 patients with a history of gastric ulcer or peptic ulcer between 3 months to 20 years. After 1 month of treatment, 24 out of 28 were clinically recovered.2 In the study, Astragalus, a common Qi tonic Chinese herb, and Angelica, a known Blood tonic herb, were included to the classic Fu Zi Li Zhong Tang herbal formula.

    How do I use it?
    The standard dosage for Midwarmer™ is 5 tablets each time, taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. One bottle lasts users 2 to 3 weeks.

    The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations based on body weight and other factors.

    Midwarmer™ is a tonic and therefore it usually takes time before its effects become apparent. It may take one month or more before symptoms begin to improve. An initial course of treatment is suggested as 4 - 6 bottles taken at the full dose.

    Differentiation in Usage
    Both Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan and YanVive may warm up the body. Fu Zi Li Zhong Wan is used when the stomach is also cold (e. g., drinking ice water causes diarrhea) whereas YanVive is used when one also has a weak lower back or back pain.

    Side Effects
    Aconite root is toxic in its unprocessed form and should not be taken in any circumstance. Aconite root used in traditional Chinese medicine including Fu Zi Li Zhong Pian (Wan) was always first processed in a special procedure to significantly reduce the toxins and then further cooked to eliminate the toxins and is safe to be used. Fu Zi Li Zhong Pian (Wan) has been safely used with few adverse effects when used as directed. However, stop use if any adverse reaction occurs like increase of blood pressure, headache, and palpitation.

    HairVive™ is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 18.
    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.
