    What does it do?
    Liver is a vital digestion organ with major roles in the metabolism and production of proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. Liver also has a central role in detoxification by breaking down the toxins. When liver functions are lessoned from virus infection or other causes, the toxins are not cleared and may be accumulated. For example, bilirubin, a breakdown molecule of hemoglobin from dead red blood cells, is excreted in the liver into the bile, an accumulation of bilirubin results in jaundice.

    A major health concern of the liver is hepatitis. Hepatitis is mostly caused by hepatitis viruses and is common among Asians. For example, one out of ten Chinese is chronically infected by hepatitis B virus (HBV) and is HBsAG (hepatitis B surface antigen) positive. HBV can persist for years or even decades and, in most cases, does not cause chronic hepatitis symptoms like poor appetite, fatigue, and low fever. However, in some people, continuous inflammation of the liver will gradually cause liver fibrosis and scars, resulting in cirrhosis and, sometimes, liver cancer.

    Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been studied extensively on how to treat hepatitis and revive liver function. Analysis of TCM patterns displayed by chronic hepatitis revealed most chronic hepatitis patients appear to have a problem of both Liver Qi stagnation and Spleen deficiency. Accordingly, strengthening the Spleen and dispersing Liver Qi has been adapted as a main strategy in treating chronic hepatitis by TCM and yielded satisfactory results in China. LiverVive™ is our signature formula that follows the strategy.

    LiverVive is composed of 9 Chinese herbs that collectively invigorate the Spleen, disperse the Liver Qi stagnation to benefit the Liver. The Chinese medicine may be used for chronic hepatitis with an enlarged spleen, or with fatigue, poor appetite, pain in the right hypochondriac region, and abdominal discomfort. The Chinese medicine may protect the liver from damages and enhance the immune function of the body for the clearance of the virus.

    In a clinical study, a Chinese herbal formula that is similar to LiverVive was used to treat 50 chronic hepatitis B patients. After 3 months of treatment, 20 patients were fully recovered, 28 were significantly improved, 2 were not improved, the effective rate is much higher than that of the control group in which the standard treatment was applied. Remarkably, hepatitis B markers in 3 patients turned negative.1

    In LiverVive, Astragalus, Atractylodes, Poria, and Licorice constitute a modified form of Si Jun Zi Tang, a famous Chinese medicine that supplements Spleen Qi and improve digestion; Bupleurum, White peony, Bitter orange, and Licorice are basically Si Ni San, a regarded ancient formula that moves Liver Qi and regulates the Liver.

    Huang Qi (Astragalus root) is a famous Chinese herb that enhances Qi energy and tonifies the Spleen. Many studies have found that Astragalus can enhance the immune function, which is largely dependent on the spleen, in consistent with the role of Astragalus in TCM in defending the body from pathogenic toxins and strengthening the spleen.

    Bai Zhu (Atractylodes rhizome) is a key tonic for the Spleen and dries Dampness.

    Fu Ling (Poria) acts to remove Dampness but it also strengthens the Spleen.

    Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies Spleen and Qi and moderates the action of the other herbs.

    Chai Hu (Bupleurum root) relieves the stagnated Liver Qi and reduces fever.

    Bai Shao (Poeny root) nourishes the blood, harmonizes the liver and relieves pain.

    Zhi Ke (Bitter orange) regulates Qi and disperses fullness in the chest and abdominal distension.

    Dan Shen (Salvia root) promotes blood circulation and removes blood stasis. The Chinese herb is often used to treat hepatitis in China. Studies have suggested that it may protect the liver from liver damages due to viral infection and chemicals like alcohol and from liver fibrosis;

    Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis rhizome) invigorates the Blood, moves Qi, and alleviates pain.

    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.
