    What does it do?

    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the Heart controls the Blood and stores Shen (the Spirit), and the Spleen absorbs the nutrients from food and transports them to the Blood. When the Heart function is weak, one may develop signs that include Blood deficiency, poor sleep, mental fogginess, and a pale complexion. When the Spleen function is weak, digestion is impaired, and consequently, the Blood is not well nourished and may not hold well in the blood vessels.

    Gui Pi Pian (Wan) strengthens the Spleen and the Heart, nourishes Blood and Qi, and calms the mind. How it acts in modern biochemical terms is not yet understood. Gui Pi Wan has been indicated in China Pharmacopoeia for use in the case of Heart and Spleen deficiency, whose presentation may include these several characteristic signs: 1. trouble in staying focused and easily forgetting what is learned; 2. not falling asleep easily; 3. lack of energy with a pale face; 4. loss of appetite. This TCM pattern of deficiency is often observed in those who study hard (students) or overwork and feel overwhelmed.

    SpleenVive™ (Gui Pi Pian) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for low-energy combined with insomnia! I had read that SpleenVive is useful for the person who thinks too much, which is supposed to drain the Spleen and ultimately the Heart as well, which leads to general anxiety and insomnia. SpleenVive is great for the combined problems of low-energy (weak Spleen) and insomnia (weak Heart). I was in this state for almost two years before discovering SpleenVive. It took about two bottles at the indicated dose for my symptoms to start to clear up, but once they did I felt great! So many people I know have this condition and I will let them know about SpleenVive. Thank you ActiveHerb for such a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This formula is amazing! I take 6 tablets 3x a day. I could feel a subtle effect almost immediately. After a month, most of my bothersome symptoms are almost resolved. I have had terrible insomnia, low energy, forgetfulness and brain fog for years. This product has addressed all of these for me. When I ran out right before I reordered (after 3 bottles), I noticed my insomnia started up again and I felt more tired and foggy. The night after starting the product again, I slept soundly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I regain my energy and mind I had low energy, PMS, frog brain, heavy period, memory loss, insomnia and anemia. After taking GUI Pi Pian 6 pills each time twice per day for one and half months, all the symptoms have reduced greatly. I have more energy physically and mentally. My period become normal and I can sleep much better at night. When I stop taking it, I immediately noticed the difference. Thank you for making this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I have had trouble sleeping since I was a kid. I have been taking melatonin for years. It helped but not enough to keep me asleep. I went to an acupuncturist who said my spleen was very weak. She gave me Gui Pi Tang. I took it, but to be honest there was not much of a difference. I was supposed to stay on it but it was a little expensive so I searched the internet. I found this company. Saw the amazing reviews along with the fact they add little to no fillers. The Spleen Vive not only had the Gui Pi Tang but Gui Pi Pian as well. I gave it a try and was so glad I did. My response was immediate I thought it was just a coincidence. For the first time in years I slept through the night. I have been taking it for approximately 3 weeks and have stopped taking melatonin and I was taking that every night for many years. I'm sleeping like a baby. You may want to see a chinese herbalist before ordering a formula. Trying to figure it out yourself can be daunting, but once you know what you need I recommend you get it from Active Herb. Excellent, effective, quality product !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blood abundance for my brain I love tcm formulas. I am recovering from general nervous exhaustion and this has helped me dramatically with this condition. I don't know what it does biochemically to my brain, but it feels like it provides it with an abundance of blood. I get a nice brain-massage sensation, a deep sense of confidence and peace. I have been missing this feeling for a while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works!! I have problem with my digestive system due to weak spleen and stomach. After taking SpleenVive for 3 weeks now, 2-3 times a day depending on my work schedules, I found it working great as my appetite has come back on track and I don't feel food always get stuck in my stomach anymore. Plus, no more bad breath that had been bothering me for years.

    Product Q&A

    My husband taking Simvastatin,ranitidine, levothyroxine, doxazosin,amlodipine, isosorbide, hydralazine, carvedilol, bupropion, proscar, furosemide, cetirizine, and humility N, melatonin, and aspirin, is anemic. Can he tolerate sleep give?

    Asked by: Granny
    Hi, Thanks for the question. We are surprised and sorry at seeing your husband taking so many drugs altogether. Believe no one can tell for sure if it is safe to combine them one with another at the first place. Not to mention what a Chinese medicine will add on top of it. Please consult with a Chinese herbalist or your medical doctor.

    Everybody loves your products. Some people say that as soon as they stop taking them, the symptoms are back. My question is: are these formulas only treating symptoms then and not healing the underlying conditions?

    Asked by: Agnes
    Hi, Thanks for the question. The formulas do work to restore the underlying balances of various kinds. Even you quickly feel the noticeable change but often times you still need to take a longer period for a complete restoration.

    I'm currently taking yinvive and hawthopower.  I would like to take spiritcalm and spleenvive in addition to the ones I'm taking now.  Would it be safe to take these four formulas at the same time?  I'm not on any medications.  Thank you.

    Asked by: 2westies
    Thank you for your questions. We do not see any contradiction to take them together. If it is a concern, you can try to take them at different time points.

    Will this ( or any other formula ) stop or slow down my period which has been going on for 5 weeks. I am 51, perimenopausal and this is the first time this has happened. I do have a fibroid and ovarian cyst. Thanks

    This formula seems perfect for me, ( blood spots, excessive empathy, hypoglycemic, low blood pressure, osteoarthritis, high cholesteriol, poor memory, insomnia, night sweats, etc) except ginseng makes my phlegm so thick I can barely breath......?
