    What does it do?

    Enjoy a Better, More Stable Mood

    You've tried eating better. And exercising more. You've even paid more attention to how you breath. And you're more conscious of not always acting on your emotions. You may feel better but you know you have a long way to go until you'd consider yourself "happy."

    Being happy takes daily work. Once you get there, it's not like you cross the finish line and then that's it. You still have to eat right, exercise, manage stress and take the right supplements. You need something more to get you over the hump so you can begin to feel even better.

    Xiao Yao Wan is one of the most popular traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) herbal formulas. This all-natural botanically-sourced remedy may help improve your mood. Because of the way Xiao Yao Wan works, it can also result in other positive health outcomes.

    Powerful Ancient Formula For Modern-Day Stress Management & Mood Enhancement

    Though it may seem like depression or moodiness arise from external factors, from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, psychological disharmony has a core physiological root cause.

    One of the most prescribed all-natural TCM herbal formulas, Xiao Yao Pian is used in modern times as a natural supplement for depression, anxiety and irritability. Taken over a sustained period of time, Xiao Yao Pian tablets (or Xiao Yao Wan pills, if you prefer) may negate the effects of modern-day stress and help regulate your mood by addressing the root cause of internal disharmony in your body.

    How Does Xiao Yao Pian Work?

    Xiao Yao Pian works by clearing Liver stagnation.

    Sure, anxiety about your bills and financial future, spiritual disconnectedness, relationship troubles and lack of fulfilling career may all affect how you view the world. And these stressors may seem impossible to overcome. But even external stressors can be managed when the Liver meridians are flowing unimpeded.

    When Liver Qi (internal life force) is impeded, both physical and psychological imbalances may occur. But given enough time - a minimum of four weeks is recommended; noticeable results may occur in less time - Xiao Yao Pian (Wan) effectively breaks up Liver Qi stagnation.

    Life stressors may become easier to deal with and your perspective about how serious these stressors really are may change for the better.

    Individual Herbal Spotlight

    Collectively, the all-natural herbs in Xiao Yao San sooth the Liver to disperse depressed qi, strengthen the Spleen to nourish the Blood, and regulate menstruation.

    Chai Hu (Bupleurum root) soothes the Liver to disperse the depressed Qi. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root) and Bai Shao (White peony root) nourish the Blood and the Liver. These first three herbs interact together to resolve the root cause of Liver Qi stagnation, as well as Blood deficiency.

    Bai Zhu (Atractylodis Rhizome) and Fu Ling (Poria) strengthen the middle warmer and reinforce the Spleen, thereby enriching the generation of Qi and Blood. Gan Jiang ( Dried Ginger rhizome) regulates the stomach and warms the middle warmer. Bo He (Peppermint) assists Chai Hu in soothing the Liver to disperse depressed Qi. Gan Cao (Licorice root) assists Bai Zhu and Fu Ling in replenishing Qi and invigorating the middle warmer; it also coordinates the synergistic effects of all the herbs in this formula.

    Together, these herbs work together to powerfully, but safely, improve the life force (Qi) of the Liver. Xiao Yao Pian may make you feel happier without having to rely on taking a 'little blue pill' that may potentially cause side effects. If you feel stressed out, depressed, or are prone to mood swings, Xiao Yao Pian may help. There's probably a lot of beauty in your life that currently may be hard to see. Given time, Xiao Yao Pian may help you to see more of that beauty.

    Does Research Support Xiao Yao Pian?

    Because Xiao Yao Wan is widely dispensed by TCM practitioners, many clinical studies have been conducted to verify its traditional use in Chinese medicine. There were 26 randomized trials published by 2009, involving 1837 patients. In these trials, Xiao Yao San was used against placebo, antidepressants, or in combination with antidepressants. The collective results show Xiao Yao San has beneficial effects on patients with depression, either using the formula alone, or combining with antidepressants by measuring the scores of HAMD and SDS. Xiao Yao San may have the same effectiveness as antidepressants at the end point of the treatment with fewer side effects.1

    In rat models that were induced with chronic stress, Xiao Yao San was shown to mitigate depression-like behaviors.2

    Xiao Yao Wan may regulate menstruation by affecting the secretion of hormones. In a study in which 51 patients were involved, levels of estrogen (E2) and prolactin were significantly reduced after use of Xiao Yao Wan whereas no change was observed in the level of testosterone.3

    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.
