    What does it do?
    Life is pain. Pain is the most common reason for doctor visits. Chronic neuropathic pain alone affects over 50 million people in the USA. Pain is managed in most cases by the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen when low or moderate pain exists. In cases of severe pain, opioid drugs such as morphine may be used after prescription. While opioid drugs are potent painkillers, they develop drug tolerance and physical dependence among other side effects. These conventional analgesics are less effective for neuropathic pain.

    From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), pain is caused by obstruction of Qi flow or blood circulation in the affected area. Qi is a vital energy circulating in the channels around our body. Many Chinese herbs are well known in TCM to move Qi energy and invigorate the Blood and thus relieve pain. Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis Rhizome) is one of such Chinese herbs. Yan Hu Suo Zhi Tong Pian (Corydalis Relaxe™) is a Guang Ci Tang® signature formula that includes Corydalis as the main ingredient and several other Chinese herbs that reinforce the action of Corydalis.

    Yan Hu Suo in TCM acts to invigorate the Blood, smooth the Qi flow, and alleviate pain. Pain management is the most conspicuous aspect of its action. Chinese herbalists have found that Yan Hu Suo is applicable to pain in a wide range of conditions and is potent compared to other Chinese herbs. Yan Hu Suo also has a good safety profile in its action. It does not induce tolerance and physical dependence, another big advantage compared to the analgesics on the market.

    Scientists have worked hard to reveal how Yan Hu Suo works in modern biomedical terms. Several analgesic components have been isolated from Corydalis. A latest research that is published in 2014 and widely reported by media including Dr Oz show nicely illustrates such an effort. In the study1, scientists from China and America are able to identify DHCB (dehydrocorybulbine), a Corydalis component, as an analgesic that is effective against thermally induced acute pain, inflammatory pain, and injury-induced neuropathic pain. Furthermore, it does not cause antinociceptive tolerance. In contrast to morphine, DHCB's antinociceptive effect appears mediated by dopamine D2 receptors but not opioid receptors. It should be noted that besides DHCB, other Corydalis components like I-THP (L-tetrahydropalmatine) are also shown to act the same way to alleviate pain. These results are in consistence with what we have known in TCM about Corydalis for centuries.

    In addition to Yan Hu Suo, Corydalis Relaxe™ includes 3 other Chinese herbs, Bai Zhi (Dahurian Angelica Root), Xiang Fu (Cyperus Rhizome), and Chuan Xiong (Sichuan Lovage Rhizome) to further enhance the action of Yan Hu Suo. Here, Bai Zhi disperses Wind and alleviates pain in the head region. Xiang Fu promotes Qi movement, resolves depression, regulates menstruation, and stops pain. Chuan Xiong is another famous Chinese herb that invigorates the Blood, smoothes Qi flow, and alleviates pain. It also expels Wind.

    Corydalis Relaxe™ is our choice of all natural dietary supplements for general pain management, whether it is chronic pain or neuropathic pain. It is especially recommended for pain caused by Qi obstruction or Blood stasis in cases of pain in the stomach, frank region, head, and menstruation.

    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.
