    What does it do?
    Zheng Gu Shui, or "bonesetting water" literally, is a liniment popular with athletes, sports fans, and martial art fans alike. It is used to temporarily relieve pains and promote healing from injuries after activities or accidents by applying topically to the skin. The liniment belongs to the type of Chinese herbal liniments known as dit da jow or die da jiu, which is traditionally made by soaking a set of Chinese herbs in alcohol for a lengthy time. In the process, herbal ingredients are slowly released and thus extracted into the liquid. The reputation Zheng Gu Shui enjoys is largely attributable to its century-old herbal formulation, which is properietary.

    From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Zheng Gu Shui promotes blood circulation to disperse blood stasis, soothes the channels and invigorates the collaterals to relax tendons and muscles, and reduces swelling and pain.

    As a topical analgesic lotion, Zheng Gu Shui helps relieve minor aches and pains of muscles and joints due to simple backache, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains.

    Zheng Gu Shui may be applied before exercise as well to relax tendons and muscles and increase energy. Simply rub or spray the lotion on the skin. One may even mix some Zheng Gu Shui with water in a bathtab and take bath to enjoy relaxation of a tired body.

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 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.

    With regard to darkening hair, is that literal? Would blonde hair become darker after using hair vive, or does it just mean that it restores hair color?
