    Ease Your Shoulders from Stiffness

    Got "50s Shoulder"?

    That's what "frozen shoulder" is called in China (because it occurs most often in people in their 50s). If you have 50s Shoulder, you know how extremely difficult and painful it is when you try to lift your arms over your head. And the toll of 50s shoulder goes way beyond the physical realm….

    Indeed, if shoulder discomfort and lack of mobility have forced you to stow your tennis racket and golf clubs away in storage, that can be downright depressing. You become resigned to thinking that your best years are behind you because you can no longer enjoy your favorite activities even though you may live at least a few decades more.

    If you wish you could once again be able to perform the most menial of functional tasks, like reaching for something on a high shelf without wincing or groaning, the good news is you don't have to get expensive, invasive surgery to feel like you have a brand new shoulder.

    Instead, give ShoulderEZ™ a try. ShoulderEZ is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) featuring 13 botanically-sourced herbs that may help promote circulation and reduce swelling.

    Signature Formula Beneficial for Shoulder Joint Problems

    From a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective, there are a couple reasons why you may be having shoulder discomfort. First, is an obvious reason: injury. But also, according to TCM theory, certain "evils" may cause disharmony in the shoulder joint. These three evils are Dampness, Wind, and Cold, which can wreak havoc on a joint if you are not aging gracefully. That's because with the aging process comes a decline of Yang energy, as well as a reduction in Qi and Blood, with accompanying weakness of Liver and Kidneys. Consequently, the tendons connecting muscle to bone get less nourished and the body has less resistance to fighting the three evils. As a result, when wind, damp, and cold invade the shoulder, these evils cause Qi and Blood stagnation, which in turn result in Yang energy not circulating, causing blockages in the meridians.

    In clinical applications, the formula which ShoulderEZ is based on has a successful track record for helping alleviate symptoms associated with Cold, Wind and Dampness. Furthermore, some of the individual herbs are clinically-proven in research studies to help alleviate pain (see research below).

    How does ShoulderEZ work?

    Collectively, the herbs in ShoulderEZ disperse wind, expel cold, remove dampness, unblock the Channels and relieve pain.

    Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses cold and dispels wind, expels dampness, and alleviates pain. Du Huo (Pubescent Angelica Root) dispels wind and removes dampness, as well as unblocks the Channels and alleviates pain.

    Gui Zhi (Cinnamon Twig) helps alleviate pain by relaxing the muscles, warming and unblocking the channels (meridians), warming Yang energy and venting Qi. Qin Jiao (Large Leaf Gentian Root) disperses wind-damp, clears damp-heat and alleviates obstructive pain.

    Hai Feng Teng (Kadsura Pepper Stem) and Sang Zhi (Mulberry Twig) both dispel Wind-Dampness and clear stagnation in the meridians, helping to alleviate painful obstruction.

    Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) helps heal trauma in the joint by nourishing and invigorating the blood. Chuan Xiong (Szechwan Lovage Rhizome) expels Wind, moves Qi, and like Dang Gui, helps invigorate the blood.

    Bai Shao (White Peony Root) relieves pain and nourishes the Blood. Jiang Huang (Turmeric Rhizome), another herb with pain-relieving potential, also breaks up blood stasis and moves Qi, as well as unblocks the Channels.

    Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) reduces swelling and alleviates pain, while also dispersing wind and expelling dampness. Ru Xiang (Boswellia Resin) also possesses pain-alleviating properties. It invigorates the blood and promotes Qi movement.

    Finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) tonifies the Spleen, augments Qi, diminishes spasms and harmonizes the properties of the other herbs.

    Does Research Support ShoulderEZ?

    Many herbs included in the formula, such as Qiang Huo1 and Qin Jiao2, are shown in studies to contain active ingredients that possess anti-inflammatory properties.

    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.
