    What does it do?
    A stroke is a rapid loss of brain function caused by an obstruction of blood supply to the brain. The lack of blood can be caused by blood clots in the blood vessels, or bleeding in the brain. Stroke sufferers may experience partial paralysis, memory loss, or speech problems. Stroke is the number two cause of death worldwide. High blood pressure is the most important risk factor of stroke.

    After emergency treatments, recovering from the post-stroke side effects like hemiplegia, and preventing future strokes from occurring again is critical. In China, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in combination with acupuncture plays an essential part of stroke rehabilitation. In the terms of TCM, post-stroke patients have common problems like Blood stasis, or blockage of channels. Accordingly, Chinese medicines are developed with the focus on promoting Blood circulation and clearing the meridians. Qiang Li Tian Ma Du Zhong Pian is one such known Chinese herbal formulas used for stroke rehabilitation.

    Qiang Li Tian Ma Du Zhong Pian was shown to treat ischemic stroke in clinical studies in China. For example, in a study of 40 ischemic stroke patients with a wind-phlegm and blood stasis, the patients took the formula for 30 days after 2 to 8 weeks since the diagnosis of stroke. In the end, 2 patients were fully recovered, 9 significantly improved, 24 improved, and only 5 did not show any improvement.1

    • Tian Ma (Gastrodia) is a precious Chinese herb that plays a leading role in the formula. It calms Wind and clears the meridians and has long been used in TCM for headache, dizziness, numbness of limbs, hemiplegia (paralysis of one side of the body), and epilepsy. In modern biochemical studies, Gastrodia extracts are shown to be analgesic, reduce hypertension; Remarkably, Gastrodin, a compound isolated from gastrodia, are found to protect neurons in the brain from damages during cerebral ischemia (loss of blood supply in the brain);2

    • Du Zhong (Eucommia) is also a chief Chinese herb in the formula and a popular tonic for both the liver and the kidneys. The Chinese herb is well recognized for strengthening bones and tendons and is commonly used for lower back pain and joint pain. Eucommia is shown in studies to have an effect on lowering blood pressure;3

    • Niu Xi (Achyranthes root) nourishes the liver and the kidneys and strengthens bones and tendons like Eucommia. The Chinese herb also invigorates the blood to remove blood stasis and clears Wind and Dampness.

    • Sang Ji Sheng (Mulberry twig) nourishes the liver and the kidneys and strengthens bones and tendons to enhance Eucommia. The Chinese herb also expels Wind and Dampness.

    • Du Huo (Angelica Pubescens) & Qiang Huo (Notopterygium root) expel Wind and remove Dampness. The Chinese herbs are used for pains in the lower back and joints.

    • Zhi Fu Zi (Aconite root) restores the Yang energy and warms the body;

    • Qin Jiao (Gentiana Macrophylla root) disperses Wind and Dampness and clears meridians;

    • Dan Shen (Salvia) promotes blood circulation and removes blood stasis;

    • Dang Gui (Angelica Sinensis) nourishes the blood and removes blood stasis;

    • Sheng Di Huang (Rehmannia root) nourishes the Yin energy, clear heat, and generates body fluids;

    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.

    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.
