    What does it do?

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can nourish the spleen and promote Qi due to the Qi deficiency. The central Qi provides the vital energy of the body including the internal organs and physical activities. When Qi is weak, the body more easily loses the physical strength and shows tiredness, weakness, lack of interest in speech; the organs like stomach, uterus, and rectum are not easy to maintain their upright positions.

    Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia for replenishing Qi, elevating the spleen Yang, promoting physical strength, and supporting the internal organs in normal shapes.

    Does research support QiVive?

    Modern biomedical studies have found many beneficial actions of Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan that support its traditional use. In controlled human trials, Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan can significantly improve the physical strength and energy.

    How do I use it?

    Take 5 tablets or pills each time, 2 to 3 times daily. One bottle lasts users about 2 to 3 weeks.

    The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., with heavy body weight).

    As the herbal formula is a mild tonic, results may only be noticeable after 1 month. It is suggested to take 4 to 6 bottles in full dose as the first regimen. The dose may then be reduced.

    1. Do not use it if you are taking cold medicines.
    2. Do not use it if you have hypertension.
    3. Consult your herbalist or physician before use if you are taking other medicines.
    4. If any adverse symptom occurs like headache and dizziness, discontinue use.
    5. Keep out of reach of children.

    QiVive™ (Bu Zhong Yi Qi Pian) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed Having to deal with the "change of life"(menopause) has been a real challenge. I have felt depressed,tired, and listless with no energy and I mean nooo energy. I spent a lot of time laying down on the couch watching tv feeling exhausted. I read about the need for boosting my Qi. I purchased the QiVive along with Brain New and Neuro soothe. I take the recommended 5 tabs but only 2 times per day. I have had a surge of energy that is wonderful! I feel so much better that I joined an excercise class which I attend 4 days a week. What a difference! Try it, you will see for yourself. It really works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from has helped with prolapse I have been taking this for about two months twice a day. I feel much better and am not experiencing the issues with prolapse and hemorrhoids as I was prior to taking the product. My question is do I continue to take this non stop? I have cut down to 4 tablets twice a day from 5. I do not want stop taking them and have issues return. Please answer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works for me I had been going to an acupuncturist for prolapse and was given a different brand of these pills - they helped a lot - between them and the treatment I had none of the distressing symptoms that can go along with organ prolapse. I had to quit going to the Dr. because I wasn`t covered anymore by my insurance - and he doesn`t ship supplements - so I searched and found these. I am sensible about things like posture and heaving lifting and take these pills 5 x 3 times daily and I can remain symptom free for the most part - I do know when it is time to take them again - I have them in my purse and travel bag and at work - I don`t want to not have them when I need them. My GP told me I need surgery and has booked an appointment for me to see a surgeon but I do not plan on having the surgery. I have not heard good things about it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this I was recommended this by a doctor of acupuncture to boost my energy. I love them. I take 5 pills and it's enough to get me through the day. If I wake up in the morning feeling groggy I take this and within a short time I have forgotten about the slow start to the day and am moving about with a sense of ease. The effects are very gentle, no spike in energy and no crash. I have found no side effects taking these, which I have with other pills I have taken.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Increases strength, energy, and appetite QiVive is my go-to formula for whenever I'm feeling drained, weak, or have no appetite. I usually take the recommended dose and within a few days I feel much, much better. First my appetite returns with a vengeance and the energy and strength follow. I lift weights several times a week and QiVive really does help with improving strength and gaining muscle. QiVive has also helped with a mild prolapse issue that was starting to concern me. I recall a time in my life when I felt weak and low energy for several years. I wish I had QiVive back then! Thank you ActiveHerb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from really does help I was skeptical at first, but I have always gotten good results from Chinese herbs, so I gave it a try. So glad I did-------it really helps with low energy levels. I take the recommended dosage in the morning, and I don't get that "slump" in the late afternoon. Give it a try!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great result! I'm very pleased with this product. I really did not expect the results I got from taking this supplement exactly according to the directions on the bottle. I have much more energy and a great improvement in the condition I am taking it for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful relief My naturopathic doctor recommended these in pill form for uterine prolapse. It takes a while to get relief, probably 3 bottles need to be taken first, but when this kicks in....the results are extremely good. Then I cut back on the dosage and just take 5 pills a day for maintenance. Won't be without them! Rarely do I have pain or discomfort anymore. HIghly recommended.
