How Zuo Gui Wan works in modern biomedical terms is still not clear. However, some researches suggest that it increases markedly the production of male sex hormone testosterone in mice and human patients with kidney Yin deficiency and promotes the development and growth of testes and uterus.1
Zuo Gui Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for Yin deficiency of kidney; weakness and soreness of the loins and the knees; sweating; lassitude; dry mouth and throat.
Zuo Gui Wan is mainly applied for:
• Sexual wellness. It is used for loss of sex desire and energy and failure to sustain firm erection in association with the weakness and soreness of the loins and knees,seminal emission, dizziness, and tinnitus.† (see sexual wellness for more info).
• Persistent Back Pain due to the kidney Yin deficiency. The pain typically gets heavier after overwork but relieved after rest and is accompanied with dizziness, tinnitus, sweat and emission.

YinVive Plus™ is a mild tonic and therefore it usually 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 6 bottles taken at the full dose.
YinVive Plus™ differs from YanVive Plus™, which nourishes kidney Yang deficiency. You Gui Wan is more suitable for people who feel cold in the limbs whereas Zuo Gui Wan is for people who feel low fever and sweat.
