    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to attacks of exogenous pathogenic factors like Wind and Cold. The Wind and Cold attack first invades the surface and the body responds with a quick onset of symptoms such as alternating chills and fever, headache, muscle aches, sneezing, cough, nasal congestion, runny nose.

    In this wind-cold type of cold/flu, sore throat is not evident but chills and head stiffness are the most differentiating signs. Aversion to cold occurs even when the room temperature has changed a little. One then feels the need to put on more clothes or raise the room temperature higher. Ge Gen Tang induces sweating to release the exterior symptoms and dispel Wind-Cold. Ge Gen (Pueraria or Kudzu root) is the chief Chinese herb in the formula and acts to dispel Wind-Cold, relieve muscle aches and generate fluids. Gui Zhi (Ramulus Cinnamomi) helps dispel Wind-Cold and promote sweating. Bai Shao (Paeoniae Alba) and Gan Cao (Licorice) also help generate fluids and relieve pain. Ginger and Jujubae harmonize the spleen and the stomach and support the Qi energy. Qiang Huo (Notopterygium root) and Du Huo (Angelica Pubescens) are warm and bitter, work together to expel wind, remove dampness, and relieve pain.

    In the latest research, Dr. Sewell studied the use of Kudzu among cluster headache sufferers who learn about Kudzu on the Internet through trial and error. The study found that various Kudzu preparations may cut the frequency, severity, and duration of cluster headache.1 The response is correlated to the dose taken each day with the lowest dose least responsive. The study is gratifying in terms of both validating the ancient wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine and the courage of self treatment enabled by the Internet.

    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.
