Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Miraculous I started taking Yan Hu Suo 6 weeks ago and I am currently pain free from sciatica, after decades of agony. I started at 3-4 grams a day. Now only take 1-2 grams. It's absolutely effective, no side effects, etc. Suffered 43 year-old accident resulting in serious injury to right leg. The sciatic nerve was badly abraised, leaving right leg permanently numb with increasing sciatic nerve pain. By 2016 the pain was unendurable. Nothing helped, from OTCs to common herbs. Found Yan Hu Suo in an Active Herb Newsletter and bought a bottle. I take the rhizomes in a 1 gram gelatin capsule. I will always keep this herb in personal pharmacopoeia !.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Give it a try. Saw the Dr Oz show and thought what the heck. I will only lose $25 if it doesnt work. Guess what? It does help. Doesnt take away all the pain but takes it down a couple of notches without drugs or side effects so that is a plus for me. I only took it twice a day and one scoop each time. I will continue using it. It takes the edge off and I can live with that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works! After seeing this on Dr. Oz show, I thought I would try. Glad that I did. I have had chronic pain for over 20 years. I have tried physical therapy, prescription pain meds, even injections into my back. Since taking this product, I am able to do things without the side affects of drugs, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Results This product replaced my Percocet for my neck/spinal pain from 2 of my neck discs which are hitting my spinal cord causing great pain in my left arm. I am talking a few different pain medications, one of which is Percocet. This Yan Hu Suo replaced it and gives me some relief.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Caused major chest discomfort I bought this product for osteoarthritis I recently started experiencing in my right foot (ankle joint). I was taking it for about a week when I started to experience really bad indigestion. I eat healthy, rarely consuming processed foods, so I pretty much never deal with indigestion. I knew right away that it was this supplement. I stopped using it and didn’t experience the chest discomfort again. It got really bad..thought I was experiencing a heart attack one day. Scary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does it Work? I have read that this product works well for some and not so good for others. I am one of "those others". I have taken this product for five days and I honestly haven't felt my pain lessen any. Too bad, too, I was really hoping it would work. I do have to warn you though, it is quite nasty tasting and you kind of have to hold your nose to drink it.

Product Q&A

I just purchased this product last month for $19.98. It's now showing a price of $36.00. Is their any difference in the product?

Asked by: Wendy
Yes. This is an improved product. The most important difference here is that the concentration is now 10x instead of 5x in the earlier batch you got, which means it is made of the double amount of the raw herb and lasts twice as long. Please check above for other exciting features of the new granules. Thank you.

I am the same person who asked the last question. I forgot to mention that the articles also recommended 3 to 9 grams of the Corydalis grandules with the 5:1 which is the same as your Corydalis.

Asked by: Sincerely2
Depending on an individual's specific condition, a practitioner may recommend a specific dosage. In general, herb products are safe within a range of prescribed amount. You may consult with a professional or start with a lower dose of 1-2 grams.

I have been reading about Corydalis grandules and the articles say to take 3 to 9 grams per day. I noticed that the Active Herb Corydalis says to take 1 to 2 grams per day. Can you explain why you recommend less grams? Thank you for your help.

Asked by: Sincerely2
Thank you for your question. Our extracts are 5 to 1 concentrated so 1 gram of granules is equivalent to 5 grams of raw herb. Our suggested dosage of 1 to 2 grams therefore is equivalent to 5 to 10 grams of raw herbs.
