    What does it do?
    LiverSoothe™ is appropriate for conditions in which binding depression of liver Qi results in fullness and distention in the chest and hypochondria, stomach ache, gastric upset, vomiting and/or acid regurgitation. When the liver Qi is unable to course freely, heat signs develop and move upward as in acid reflux, vomiting etc.. When the Qi mechanism is impeded, blood stasis may also develop, which results in pain.

    Primary signs of liver depression with heat and stasis include irritability, epigastric pain, costal (rib-side) pain, feeling of oppression in the chest and possibly a bitter taste in the mouth. The tongue will be red, especially on the sides and there may be a yellow coating. The pulse will be rapid and wiry.

    This is a modern Chinese formulation based on the classical formula Jin Ling Zi San. Shu Gan Wan is more focused on alleviating pain.

    Shu Gan Pian (LiverSoothe™) is composed of twelve medicinal herbs which course the liver Qi, move blood, clear heat and harmonize the stomach.

    Chuan Lian Zi (Sichuan Chinaberry fruit) is an important Qi regulating herb. Here, it is paired with Yan Hu Suo (Cordyalis) and Xiang Fu (Cyperus rhizome), both of which are also effective Qi moving herbs. This combination is especially effective for relieving hypochondriac and abdominal pain resulting from Qi depression. Xiang Fu has been studied in particular for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders and has shown effectiveness at relieving abdominal cramps and pain due to Qi stagnation. Bai Shao (white Peony) is included to soften the liver and also relieve pain.

    Mu Xiang (Aucklandia root), Hou Po (Magnolia cortex) and Sha Ren (Cardamon seed) are combined with Xiang Fu here to harmonize the liver and stomach and restore appetite. Dou Kou Ren (Amomum seed), in conjunction with Sha Ren and Hou Po dissolves dampness and strengthens the stomach. Chen Pi (Tangerine peel) and Fu Ling (Poria) further help to eliminate dampness, strengthen the middle and promote proper movement of Qi and relieve pain.

    Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange fruit) and Pian Jiang Huang (Curcuma wenyujin) move Qi and blood and alleviate 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.

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.
