    What does it do?
    Bone spurs (osteophytes) form when the body attempts to heal itself by building more bone around a damaged or degenerating area. This is often a part of the aging process. As we age, the cartilage which cushions the bones within our joints breaks down, and eventually begins to wear away. This condition is known as osteoarthritis (OA). Intervertebral discs which cushion the spaces between the bones of the spine may also break down with age. This creates pain, swelling and possibly bone spurs (overgrowth). Bone spurs are especially common in the joints of the spine and feet.

    Kang Gu Zeng Sheng Pian is an important formula for addressing the above conditions. Kang Gu Zeng Sheng Pian tonifies the Liver and Kidney, strengthens the tendons and bones, dispels Wind-Damp, invigorates and nourishes the Blood, unblocks the channels and relieves pain. Modern research suggests that Kang Gu Zeng Sheng Pian may also encourage cartilage regeneration and shrink bone spurs.

    Kang Gu Zeng Sheng Pian is composed of 10 herbs which perform the essential functions of tonifying the Liver and Kidneys, strengthening the tendons and bones, invigorating and nourishing the blood and unblocking the channels to relieve pain and promote healing.

    Shu Di Huang (processed Rehmannia root) is a powerful Chinese herb used to nourishes Yin and blood. Shu Di Huang also tonifies essence (Jing) and strengthens the marrow of the bones. Rou Cong Rong (Cistanche) is used to tonify the Yang, which is essential in bone-related conditions. It is also a blood and essence tonic.

    Niu Xi (Achyranthes root) is a Liver and Kidney (Yin) tonic but also invigorates blood, relieves stasis and strengthens tendons and bones. Niu Xi is used for its additional ability to anchor hyper ascendant Liver Yang (which often results from Kidney and Liver deficiency related to the aging process). Niu Xi is also highly beneficial in the treatment of joint pain.

    Nu Zhen Zi (Ligustrum) is a somewhat mild Yin tonic, but is not as oily or cloying as Shu Di Huang. Nu Zhen Zi is used for deficiency type bone pain (steaming bone disorder) and has known anti-inflammatory effects.1 Gou Ji (Cibot rhizome) are used to strengthen the sinews and bones while supplementing the liver and kidney.

    Lu Xian Cao (Pyrola) clears wind-dampness which is frequently associated with arthritis. Lu Xian Cao also tonifies the Kidneys, strengthens tendons and bones and is particularly effective at relieving bone spurs when combined with Ying Yang Huo (Horny Goat weed), Ji Xue Teng (Spatholobus) and Gu Sui Bu (Drynaria).

    Ying Yang Huo tonifies the Kidneys and Yang energy while dispelling wind damp and alleviating pain. Gu Sui Bu tonifies the Kidneys and promotes the healing of bones and relieves pain. Gu Sui Bu has been shown to be especially good at relieving joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.2 Ji Xue Teng is an important herb in this formula because it invigorates as well as tonifies the blood while relaxing tendons and opening the channel pathways.

    Lai Fu Zi (Radish seed) promotes digestion which is an important consideration with this formula, as most Yin and Kidney tonics are cloying in nature and therefore difficult to digest. Caution should be exercised in cases with underlying digestive deficiency.

    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.

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.
