    What does it do?
    In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the Spleen is the most important organ of the body in absorbing the nutrients from the food and transforming them into the Yin, Yang, and Qi energy etc, the fundamental elements in regulating our overall body functions. A strong Spleen function supplies the body abundant Yin, Yang, Qi and nutrients. When the Spleen Qi is inadequate, adsorption and transportation of nutrients is affected, causing pale face, low soft voice, poor appetite, loose stool, weakness of limbs, weak pulse etc.

    Si Jun Zi Tang is the basic Chinese herbal formula that supports Spleen Qi. The formula consists of four Chinese herbs, Ginseng or Codonopsis, Atractylodes, Poria, and Licorice. Among them, Ginseng or Codonopsis replenishes the Qi energy and harmonizes the Spleen; Atractylodes is a key tonic for the Spleen and Stomach and dries Dampness; Poria acts mainly to remove Dampness but it also strengthens the Spleen; Licorice tonifies Spleen and Qi and synchronizes the action of the other herbs.

    Studies have been conducted to explore the action of Si Jun Zi Tang in modern biomedical terms. For example, one study applied Si Jun Zi Tang to patients who just had operations on their gastrointestinal tumor. B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes and some T subtypes, cytokines like interleukin 1, 2, 6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) etc were measured before and after the application in control and treated groups. It was shown that Si Jun Zi Tang treatment significantly increased total lymphocytes, CD3 and CD4 cell counts, and interleukin 2 serum level whereas it reduced the levels of interleukin 6, TNF-alpha and CRP (C-reactive protein). It was concluded that Si Jun Zi Tang may relieve post-operational stress and inflammatory response and enhance the immune function of patients.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.
