    What does it do?
    Boost Energy From Within & Power Through The Day

    Many people rely on caffeine, sugary energy drinks and snacks for a quick pick-me up. But the problem with the boost of energy that stimulants, sugar and drugs provide is that they often quickly lead to energy crashes. After all, what goes up must come down! These common false-energy boosters do not strengthen the body internally. The boost you get from sugar and caffeine is short-lived and potentially hazardous for health in the long run.

    If your goal is to have rock-steady energy so you can tackle everyday tasks without relying upon unhealthy food, drink or supplements, the challenge, then, is to find an all-natural remedy that will make you feel like your energy levels are much improved, but without the jittery/hyper side-effects.

    QiVive™ is an herbal dietary supplement that safely increases energy, stamina and endurance by strengthening the body's internal organs over time. Whether you feel tired after only a short walk, experience shortness of breath minutes into sports activities, lose interest in talking, or barely keep yourself awake after 9 o'clock in the evening, QiVive™ can help.

    QiVive™ is not an energy shot. Do not expect it to kick in immediately. It may take several weeks to build up the physical strength internally and maintain it before significant difference in endurance is noticed.

    Time-Tested, Ancient Formula Strengthens Body's Life Force

    QiVive™ is based on one of the best known and regarded traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formulas named Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang. Created one thousand years ago, the formula is the primary herbal blend that supplements the body's central Qi energy. In TCM theory, weakness and lack of energy is caused by impeded or diminished Qi, which is the body's circulating life force. The combination of the 10 all-natural herbs in QiVive™, including Astragalus and Codonopsis, strengthens the body's Qi and gives the organs the support they need to function at optimal levels.

    The QiVive formula is referenced in the PRC Pharmacopoeia for improving tiredness and physical weakness and for stimulating Spleen Yang to support drooping internal organs.1

    Does Research Support Qivive's Efficacy?

    In controlled human trials, QiVive™ was found to significantly improve the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) after 8 to 12 weeks of use. Astragalus, one of the main herbs in QiVive™, has been shown to reduce fatigue in athletes.2

    Biomedical studies have also proved QiVive™ effective for increasing the activity of natural killer cells in the blood, and increasing the serum level of interferon-gamma (IFN-g), which are crucial in our body's defense against pathogens. Thus, QiVive™ may enhance the immune function to protect the body from infections of bacteria and virus, or restore the suppressed immune function resulting from radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or stress in animal and human.3-6

    Additional Benefits of QiVive™
    Improves digestion

    QiVive™ in particular nourishes the Spleen which carries the digestive function in TCM theory. Depleted spleen function causes poor absorption of nutrients and dampness (excess moisture, water retention), which in turn causes digestive issues like diarrhea and low energy.

    Supports immune function

    As strong Qi energy plays a defense function to the body, if you frequently get colds, QiVive™ can help.

    Cancer treatment recovery

    QiVive™ may provide an important dietary support to cancer patients. Cancer treatments typically damage Qi and immune function, and cause fatigue. QiVive™ may boost internal energy in such cases.

    Maintain organ structure

    QiVive™ may help maintain proper shapes of organs such as breasts, uterus, rectum as it counteracts drooping/sagging/prolapse of organs.

    What is the formula composition?

    A proprietary blend of water extraction of

    Astragalus Root Huang Qi
    Codonopsis Root Dang Shen
    Angelica Sinensis Root Dang Gui
    Atractylodes Rhizome Bai Zhu
    Cimicifuga Rhizome Sheng Ma
    Bupleurum Root Chai Hu
    Licorice Root Gan Cao
    Citrus Peel Chen Pi
    Chinese Date Fruit Da Zao
    Ginger Root Sheng Jiang
    What is Available?

    Each bottle contains 80 veggie capsules. Each capsule contains 400 mg QiVive™ Complex.

    Purity & Strength You Can Depend On

    QiVive™ is made from authentic Chinese herbs of premium quality. We use a proprietary extraction technology that optimizes the unique properties of each individual herb to maximize the extraction of active ingredients. We are able to generate extracts concentrated by a factor of 5 to 15 times, which means 1 gram of our extract is equal to the strength of 5 to 15 grams of raw herbs. This is a concentration ratio hardly achieved by others in the field.

    To further maintain the purity of QiVive™, we do not introduce fillers to the extract during the encapsulation process, unlike other manufacturers. Other dietary supplements commonly contain a long list of other ingredients such as Magnesium Stearate, whereas QiVive™ contains nothing more than the QiVive™ complex itself. As a result, we can deliver an adequate quantity of the formula in a small dose of QiVive™.

    All Natural & Vegetarian

    All of the components in QiVive™ are 100% natural, down to the veggie capsule shell. Even the extraction process itself is carried out with water as the solvent.

    QiVive™ is guaranteed to be free of pharmaceuticals. It contains no preservatives, no alcohol, no artificial flavor or color, no gluten, and no sugar. Heavy metal contents are tested for compliance with the standards set by US Pharmacopeia.

    How do I use it?

    As the herbal formula is a mild tonic and acts slowly, results may not be noticeable within 1 month, it is suggested to take 4 to 6 bottles in full dose as the first regimen. The dose may then be reduced.

    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.
