    What does it do?
    Our body is a miraculous system that maintains a delicate balance of its interacting body parts or molecules. Any compromise of such a balance is an indication of the body in an unhealthy state. Take the blood sugar as an example, when its level in fasting exceeds 126 mg/dl (milligrams per decilitre), the body is diagnosed as diabetic. The symptoms of high blood glucose may be as mild as increased thirst, frequent urination, and increased hunger. But the complications could be as severe as causing death. Some diabetes (type 1) is due to the lack of production of insulin, the major hormone lowering the blood sugar, and is treatable only by insulin injection. Most cases of diabetes (type 2) are however caused by failure of the body to respond to insulin and are treated by drugs like metformin, which acts to decrease production of glucose by the liver.

    The occurrence of type 2 diabetes is rising quickly worldwide and lifestyle factors are largely to be blamed. Recognized risk factors include obesity, lack of physical activity, stress, diet and etc. Lifestyle changes such as eating diets that avoid sugary food are known to be effective in managing blood glucose levels in a normal range.

    While the term "diabetes" was not known to Chinese until the modern time, its symptoms have been long recognized in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and correspond to Xiao Ke (wasting and thirsting) syndrome. Amazingly, one ancient test for the syndrome simply involved peeing on a rock to see if ants were attracted to feed on sweetness. From the perspective of TCM, most Xiao Ke cases manifest the characteristic of the deficiency of both Yin and Qi energies. For example, thirst is an outcome of Yin energy insuffiently balancing out Yang energy. That is as if not enough water cools out fire so the heat becomes excessive.

    Extensive studies have been carried out to understand the basis of glucose metabolism in the TCM term and many Chinese medicine have been developed to address the issue. One common strategy emerges is to nourish Yin, tonify Qi, generate body fluids, and clear heat. GlucoAssure™ is our signature formula that follows the principle and combines multiple Chinese herbs shown in biomedical studies beneficial at regulating glucose metabolism. GlucoAssure™ may provide the necessary dietary support to maintain blood sugar within a normal range.

    Ren Shen (Ginseng root): As one of the most known Chinese herbs, Ginseng is a powerful Qi tonic. It tonifies Qi and generates fluids. Ginseng contains several compounds that are shown in studies to regulate glucose metabolism. A meta-analysis of clinical trials recently concluded that Ginseng may modestly yet significantly improve fasting blood glucose in people.1

    Huang Qi (Astragalus root): Astragalus is also a very known Chinese herb that tonifies Qi and supports immune function. Components like polysaccharides, saponins, and flavonoidshave have been isolated from Astragalus that may play various roles in immunoprotection, insulin resistance, and glucose metabolism.2

    Fu Ling (Poria), Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome) and Gan Cao (Licorice root): Poria, Atractylodes, and Licorice strengthen the digestive function and replenish Qi.

    Huang Jing (Solomon Seal rhizome): Solomon Seal tonifies the Kidneys, nourishes Yin, and moistens the Lung. A water extract of Solomon Seal is shown to lower fasting blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin (GHb), and to improve the glucose tolerance in diabetic mice.3

    Mai Dong (Ophiopogon tuber): Ophiopogon nourishes Yin, generates fluids, and quenches thirst. In studies, oligosaccharides of Ophiopogon may reduce fasting blood glucose level and improve oral glucose tolerance in diabetic rats.4

    Ge Gen (Kudzu root, Pueraria root): Pueraria generates fluids and quenches thirst. A dietary supplementation of kudzu root extract has been found to reduce fasting plasma glucose and improve insulin tolerance in obese mice. 5

    Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra fruit): Schisandra fruits tonifies Kidneys, nourishes Qi, and generates fluids among other functions.

    Huang Lian (Coptis rhizome): Coptis clears heat and relieves toxicity. Studies show that Berberine from Coptis may improve fasting blood glucose by directly inhibitiing gluconeogenesis in liver of diabetic rats. 6

    Da Huang (Rhubarb): Rhubarb also clears heat and relieves toxicity.

    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.
