    What does it do?
    Let us face it. Dealing with metabolic disorders like hyperlipidemia and diabetes are a daunting job. Not only we are all at risk of actually developing them at our lifetime, but also we cannot cure them. Certainly, now we can treat high cholesterol and high glucose with prescription drugs like Lipitor, but we probably have to stay on the drugs for the rest of our life.

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctors had long recognized these metabolic conditions that are known to us only centuries later as diabetes etc.. From the perspective of TCM, the symptoms of diabetes indicate a cause rooted in the deficiency of Yin, the womanish and negative principle of Yin-Yang, and a secondary cause in the deficiency of Qi, the vital energy circulating around the body, while the common complications of diabetes comes as the result of blood stasis. Similarly in the TCM term, high cholesterol is a form of blood stagnation or stasis. Chinese herbal medicines designed to remedy these causes have been shown beneficial in managing the symptoms and reducing the complications.

    MetaboGuard™ is a Guang Ci Tang signature Chinese herbal formula that nourishes Yin to promote fluid generation and clear dryness. Furthermore, it promotes blood circulation to disperse blood stasis and fat. The herbal formula consists of multiple Chinese herbs that are found in studies to have the ability of naturally reducing glucose or cholesterol levels. Some of them are highlighted below.

    Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia root) is a key Chinese herb that nourishes the Yin energy, clears heat, and generates body fluids.

    • Tian Hua Fen (Trichosanthes root) clears heat and generates fluids, moistens lung, and subdues swelling and expels pus.

    Huang Qi (Astragalus root) is a key Chinese herb that tonifies Qi and enhances the immune function. It also benefits the cardiovascular system and glucose metabolism.

    Shan Zha (Hawthorn berry) is a well known Chinese herb that assists digestion and reduces fat to promote circulation. Hawthorn extracts are shown to lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels in many studies.1-3

    Dan Shen (Salvia root) is perhaps the best known and the most commonly used Chinese herb for promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis. Extensive biomedical studies on Danshen suggest that it improves microcirculation, dilates coronary arteries, inhibits platelet aggregation and thrombosis, and protects against myocardial ischemia and stroke.4,5

    Shou Wu (Polygoni Multiflori root) is a famous Chinese herb that tonifies the liver and kidneys and grow hair. It also helps reduce total cholesterol and triglyceride.6

    Da Huang (Rhubarb root) drains fire and removes toxins. The Chinese herb moistens intestines to relieve constipation. Da Huang is reported to minimize the increase of cholesterol and triglyceride caused by high cholesterol diet.

    Chuan Xiong is a key Chinese herb that invigorates Blood, moves Qi, expels Wind, and relieves Pain. It acts similarly to Salvia root in increasing blood flow to coronary arteries, reducing blood clots, lowering blood pressure, relieving chest pain associated with Qi and Blood Stasis.

    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.
