    What does it do?

    Helps clear the urinary tract

    You want to get a restful, peaceful night sleep but you have to wake up in the middle of the night a few times to urinate. It would be one thing if you could quickly do your business and go right back to sleep. But compounding the problem is having a urination that stops and starts in fits because of a very potentially painful problem….

    And that problem is kidney deposits.

    Ask anybody who has had a kidney deposit and they'll tell you that passing one is one of the most, if not the most, painful experience of their life.

    The fear of going to the bathroom is an awful thing to have to go through.

    Calcified deposits in the kidney, bladder, or urethra are one of the major sources of morbidity around the world.

    But the good news is there's a safe, gentle, all-natural herbal remedy for helping you urinate more smoothly.

    Stonepass™ is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that may help you effortlessly pass these deposits and clear the urinary tract. This herbal formula is specifically for stones less than 8 mm in size. In addition, it may be used as a preventative formula if you have had kidney stones in the past.

    Signature formula helps pass small stones

    Both western medicine and TCM recognize a symptom known as "strangury," which is characterized by painful and frequent urination in small volumes. You know if you have strangury when you have to strain forcefully to expel only a tiny amount of urine, despite the fact that it feels like you have to eliminate a gallon of fluid.

    The all-natural herbal ingredients in Stonepass promotes urination. These herbs, which have been used for several centuries in TCM application, may help pass and shrink calcified deposits.

    This TCM approach to treating strangury urination is different from western medicine, which includes ultrasound. Ultrasound therapy breaks up the stones into much smaller pieces.

    By comparison, TCM addresses the problems of strangury by resolving two underlying conditions. They are damp-heat and long-term deficiency of kidney yin.

    If you have a family history of stones, you may have a constitutional predisposition to developing stones. And if you've never experienced the painful dread of passing a stone, but stones runs in your family, taking Stonepass from time to time (for a week or so every month) may help prevent deposits from forming again.

    How does Stonepass work?

    The herbs in Stonepass clear damp heat; promote urination; unblock painful urinary dribbling and push out stones.

    Jin Qian Cao (Gold Coin Grass, aka Asian Moneywort), the chief herb in Stonepass, is perhaps the most well known Chinese herb for promoting urination and expelling stones. It promotes urine acidification and reduces swelling.

    Ren Dong Teng (Honeysuckle) clears heat and toxins, while San Ye Mu Tong (Akebia), clears heat and promotes urination.

    Shi Wei (Pyrrosia Leaf) unblocks the urinary tract. Qu Mai (Dianthus) drains damp and heat from the Bladder, as does Hua Shi (talcum), another natural diuretic in the formula.

    Xu Chang Qing (Paniculate Swallow-Wort) dispels Wind-Dampness.

    Dong Kui Zi (Musk Mallow Seeds) also promotes urination, as does Che Qian Zi (Asian Plantain Seeds). And finally, the last herb in the formula, Gan Cao (Licorice Root), harmonizes the action of other herbs.

    Research supporting the use of Stonepass

    The chief herb in the formula, Jin Qian Cao, has demonstrated the ability to inhibit crystal growth and aggregation. In animal models, experimental groups demonstrated significantly lower calcium, creatinine and phosphorus levels compared to the control group. Researchers concluded this herb reduces stone formation of pure calcium oxalate crystals.1

    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.
