    What does it do?
    Each year in the USA, over 1 million people have heart attacks (myocardial infarction), and half of them die; 800,000 people have stroke (brain attacks). Both heart attack and stroke are the leading causes of death worldwide. Heart attacks occur when blood flow to the heart is blocked by blood clots formed in the inside wall of its coronary arteries which feed the heart with blood and oxygen. Stroke is caused by either the loss of blood supply to the brain due to blood clots in the blood vessels or bleeding in the brain.

    Clearly, keeping a healthy cardiovascular system is of vital importance. One needs to keep a normal level of blood cholesterols and lipids to minimize the build up of plaques (clots) and to lower blood viscosity for a smooth blood flow; one needs to keep a normal level of blood pressure to minimize the risks of most cardiovascular diseases. No wonder the drugs for reducing cholesterol like lipitor, for thinning the blood like plavix, and for lowering blood pressure are the mostly demanded medicines.

    Accumulation of plaques or clots in blood vessels is referred as blood stasis or blood stagnation in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Many Chinese herbs are well known to disperse blood stasis and activate blood. They are widely used in China to deal with diseases related to the cardiovascular system such as coronary heart disease (CHD, or coronary artery disease, CAD), atherosclerosis, angina, chest pain, numbness of the extremities, vertigo, stroke etc. In biomedical studies, these Chinese herbs are shown to increase blood flow, inhibit platelet aggregation, and reduce blood pressure.

    Vessowell™ is a Guang Ci Tang signature Chinese herbal formula for promoting cardiovascular health. It also activates the meridian channels. The Chinese medicine is a properietary combination of the following Chinese herbs.

    • Dan Shen (Salvia root) is perhaps the best known and the most commonly used Chinese herb for promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis. Extensive biomedical studies on Danshen suggest that it improves microcirculation, dilates coronary arteries, inhibits platelet aggregation and thrombosis, and protects against myocardial ischemia and stroke.1,2 A Dan Shen preparation was recently reported to have successfully passed a phase II clinical trial for angina pectoris in USA.

    • Chuan Xiong is a key Chinese herb that invigorates Blood, moves Qi, expels Wind, and relieves Pain. It acts similarly to Salvia root in increasing blood flow to coronary arteries, reducing blood clots, lowering blood pressure, relieving chest pain associated with Qi and Blood Stasis.

    • Huang Qi (Astragalus root) is a key Chinese herb that tonifies Qi and enhances the immune function. It also benefits the cardiovascular system and is shown to dilate coronary arteries and lower hypertension.

    • Xia Ku Cao (Prunella) clears liver fire and dissolves mass. The Chinese herb is also shown to decrease blood pressure.

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

    • Gou Teng (Uncaria twig) clears heat and calms the Liver. The Chinese herb has a property of reducing blood pressure.

    • Yu Jin (Curcuma root) both activates blood and moves Qi to relieve chest pain due to Qi stagnation and blood stasis.

    • Tian Ma (Gastrodia root) calms Wind and clears the meridians. 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).3

    • Sang Ji Sheng (Mulberry twig) nourishes the liver and the kidneys and strengthens bones and tendons. It is also beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

    • Bai Shao (White peony root) nourishes the blood, harmonizes the liver and relieves pain. The Chinese herb dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow.

    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.
