    What does it do?
    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), our body is vulnerable to the attacks of pathogenic factors. The attacks first invade the surface such as the mouth, nose, and upper respiratory track, the body reacts with symptoms like fever, cough, and headache. If not halted they invade deeper into the interior of the body and cause more severe conditions. The pathogenic factors are classified as wind, heat, cold, dampness etc in TCM terms and some of these in modern medical terms belong to bacteria and viruses (e. g., cold viruses and flu viruses).

    Sang Ju Yin is a classic Chinese herbal formula that acts to halt the invasion of pathogenic factors. It is mainly used for the common cold and flu (influenza). It is most effective when a cold or flu is still at its early stage and symptoms like cough, sore throat, mild thirst, and slight fever just appear, especailly when cough appears as the main symptoms.

    Sang Ju Yin is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia1 for dispersing wind and clearing heat, ventilating the lung to relieve cough. Although its main application is the common cold or flu, it is also reported helpful for whooping cough, bronchitis, and tonsillitis.

    When swine flu outbreak occurred in the spring of 2009, Sang Ju Yin emerged as a major Chinese medicine used by the Chinese health authorities for the prevention as well as the treatment of the swine flu. It is best to take it as soon as someone around has the flu or you just appear to have some flu symptoms like cough and sore throat. Back several years ago, Sang Ju Yin in combination with Yu Ping Feng San has contributed to the prevention of the SARS virus outbreak as well.2

    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.
