    What does it do?
    From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), general signs of blood deficiency include dry skin, pale complexion, insomnia, irregular menstrual cycles with scanty flow, dizziness, vertigo, constipation and/or fatigue. Blood deficiency is particularly common in women due to the loss of menstrual blood. Si Wi Tang Pian strongly addresses blood deficiency, with emphasis on Liver blood.

    The Liver in TCM is responsible for maintaining a normal menstrual cycle. Si Wu Tang Pian is particularly suited to cases of chronic blood deficiency with menstrual irregularities, which may even include infertility. Si Wu Tang Pian regulates the Chong Mai and Ren Mai, major meridians associated with fertility. The Heart also depends on sufficient nourishment from Liver blood, whose deficiency is often the cause of palpitations and insomnia.

    Si Wu Tang Pian is an important formula in cases presenting with the above symptoms and a pale tongue and a thin pulse. Blood stasis commonly develops in cases of blood deficiency, and may be evidenced by a thin-choppy or thin-wiry pulse.

    With the appropriate presentation, this formula may be used for such conditions as anemia, menorrhagia, postpartum fatigue/weakness, threatened miscarriage, insufficient lactation, periumbillical pain and generalized muscle tension.

    Si Wu Tang Pian is an elegant, foundational blood tonic formula composed of just four Chinese herbs. The herbs in this formula fall into two groups, based on the role they play in the formula. The first group, consisting of Shu Di Huang (Rehmannia root) and Bai Shao (Peony), directly tonify the blood. Shu Di Huang has a powerful tonifying effect on the blood and Yin, particularly of the Liver and Kidneys. Shu Di Huang also tonifies the Jing or essence, and is therefore an important substance used in the treatment of infertility. Bai Shao also nourishes the Liver and has been shown to alleviate pain and muscle spasms.

    The second group of herbs, consisting of Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) and Chuan Xiong (Szechuan Lovage Root) regulate the Qi of the blood to dispel and prevent blood stasis, which often develops from chronic blood deficiency. Dang Gui tonifies the blood without cloying and even invigorates the blood, a rare combination for herbs in the blood tonic category. Chuan Xiong is a blood-invigorating herb, well known for its ability to address issues of irregular or painful menstruation associated with insufficient Qi and blood circulation. Animal studies have shown Chuan Xiong to have safe anticoagulant effects.

    Together, these four medicinals compose an elegant, well balanced and highly regarded Classical formula for the treatment of conditions associated with chronic blood deficiency.

    How do I use it?
    The standard dosage for Tonics4™ is 4 tablets each time, taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. One bottle lasts users 17 to 25 days.

    The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations based on body weight and other factors.

    Tonics4™ is a mild tonic and therefore it takes time before its effects become apparent. It may take one month or more before symptoms begin to improve. An initial course of treatment is suggested as 4 - 6 bottles taken at the full dose. In cases of infertility, results may take several months up to one year.

    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.
