    What does it do?

    Purge toxins so you can feel normal

    Feeling ‘normal' these days is a rare luxury for many people. But feeling normal should be the norm, not the exception. Unfortunately, the food we eat, the air we breathe, the financial and other stressors we face, is toxic to our health. For some people this toxic influence manifests as a wide variety of symptoms that are attributed to excess toxicity, fire and/or wind-dampness, according to TCM theory.

    And how do some people these days get rid of toxicity? Juice fasts and cleanses are trendy. But many restrictive fasts and cleanses starve the body of fiber, protein and natural fats. Another popular detox trend is colonics. However, cleanses and colonics are not the most enjoyable, affordable and easiest way to detox.

    CoptisClear™ makes it very easy for you to help your body get rid of toxins. This TCM formula features one of the most widely used herbs for addressing fire and dampness in the body.

    Excess fire and heat causes inflammation in the body. In the west, many people take over-the-counter or prescription medications, including antibiotics, to relieve inflammatory symptoms. But these solutions do not address the root cause of the body's internal imbalance.

    Modern formula improves upon successful ancient formula

    If you want lasting relief from symptoms caused by toxicity, excess heat and/or fire, CoptisClear™ is based on—and expands upon—a popular TCM remedy that's been successfully used for centuries. Whereas many traditional Chinese formulas that purge heat and remove fire contain only a handful of herbs at most, CoptisClear™ contains 17 herbs, drastically increasing the toxicity-removing potential.

    CoptisClear™ may help if you have any of the following common manifestations of excess heat, fire and toxicity: toothache, sensation of heat, red eyes, sore throat, gingival swelling and pain, mouth sores, constipation and yellow urine.

    CoptisClear™ works by draining fire and purging toxins. CoptisClear™ is especially beneficial for symptoms related to Upper Burner—located above the diaphragm, including the heart and lungs—imbalances.

    How Does CoptisClear™ Work?

    Because there are so many herbs in CoptisClear™, the following is an abridged summary of the herbal actions.

    Huang Lian (Coptis Rhizome), the formula's Chinese namesake, has been used for hundreds of years to clear heat, remove toxicity, and drain dampness. It's one of the most commonly used Chinese herbs and its history dates back to the Emperor's Classic of Materia Medica, in which it's listed as one of the best herbs.

    This action of Coptis is enforced by Huang Qin (Scutellaria Root), Huang Bo (Amur Cork Tree Bark), and Shi Gao (Gypsum), all of which purges fire and removes heat, and resolves toxicity.

    Zhi Zi (Gardenia Fruit) cools the blood and resolves toxicity from urination. Mu Xiang (Rhubarb) purges heat and moves the bowels to remove toxins.

    Among the above herbs, Huang Lian (Coptis Rhizome), Huang Qin (Scutellaria Root), Huang Bo (Amur Cork Tree Bark), and Zhi Zi (Gardenia Fruit) together forms Huang Lian Jie Du Tang, a basic yet regarded Chinese medicine formula for detoxification.

    Lian Qiao (Forsythia Fruit), Man Jing Zi (Vitex Fruit), Fang Feng (Siler Root), Jing Jie (Schizonepeta Herb), Bai Zhi (Dahurian Angelica Root), Ju Hua (Chrysanthemum Flower), Bo He (Peppermint), and Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Rhizome) all release the exterior, and disperse wind, and clear heat.

    Jie Geng (Platycodon Root) ventilates the Lungs, benefits the throat and dispels phlegm. Xuan Fu Hua (Inula Flower) descends Qi and stops vomiting. And finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) harmonizes the action of all herbs in the formula.

    Does Research Support CoptisClear™?

    Many studies have been conducted to understand how Huang Lian Jie Du Tang, the basic formula in CoptisClear™, acts in the body in terms of its absorption, distribution, metabolism, and mechanisms. One study confirmed the heat-dissipating and detoxifying effects of the formula in rat models with molecules involved in inflammatory responses. The levels of tumor necrosis factor, interleukin, and macrophage inflammatory protein and body temperature significantly decreased after the administration of the formula. The results demonstrated that Huang Lian Jie Du may restrain inflammation synergistically via its major constituents.1

    Another study analyzing the efficacy of Huang Lian Jie Du Tang focused on treatment for atopic dermatitis, a condition associated with severely dry, itchy skin. The study investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of the formula by evaluating the change of nitric oxide and the production of several cytokines, as well as other markers. The results led researchers to conclude that the formula "exerted significant anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects through suppressing the production of allergic and inflammatory mediators." 2

    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.

    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.
