    Grow Thick, Darker Hair & Look Younger Naturally

    Having thinning or graying hair can adversely affect your life in several ways. For starters, your self-esteem may suffer. You could be passed over for a promotion or not get hired for a job because another candidate has a thicker set of hair. You could also get rejected by someone you're attracted to. Whether unconscious or intentional, baldness discrimination is a fact of life. Having thinning or graying hair can make you feel drastically less confident or even discouraged.

    Many people with thinning or graying hair rely on hair regrowth drugs like Rogaine, which contains minoxidil. Minoxidil can potentially lead to side-effects including weight gain, chest pain, dizziness and fainting.

    If you want to thicken your hair and reverse or prevent greying, the natural way, HairVive™ can help.

    Hair loss and graying hair are caused by several factors, the most common of which is attributable to the ageing process. HairVive™ is appropriate for those who have had their hair thin over the years or turn grey because of aging and stress.

    Ancient Remedy Thrives in a Powerful Modern Formula

    HairVive™ is based on a traditional Chinese herbal remedy over 1,000 years old. This traditional Chinese herb that's been enormously popular over the centuries for its anti-aging benefits is called 'He Shou Wu', which literally means "Mr. He Hair Black." Legend has it that Mr. He restored his vitality, sexual potency, and youthful appearance by taking He Shou Wu centuries ago.

    According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, He Shou Wu (Polygoni multiflori, Fo-Ti), in its processed form, supports and strengthens Liver and Kidneys. Liver is the source for blood. Liver Blood nourishes the head, hair and scalp. Kidney is the source of Jing or life essence and keeps bones strong and fortifies bone marrow. He Shou Wu replenishes sexual virility and controls the aging process. Therefore, He Shou Wu may stimulate hair growth, keep hair dark, and support graceful aging and general wellbeing.1

    ActiveHerb has added four additional herbs, including three fruits to further enhance anti-aging benefits
    Shu Di Huang

    (Prepared rehmannia)'s primary function is to nourish Kidney Yin.

    Glossy privet fruit

    nourishes and tonifies Liver and Kidneys, clears heat deficiency and improves vision. One of the oldest Chinese herbal remedies, glossy fruit from the privet bush promotes hair growth and hair darkening, reducing facial dark spots, and promoting youthfulness.

    Mulberry fruit

    influences Heart, Liver, and Kidney channels, tonifies blood and enriches Yin energy. This superfood is touted by health

    celebrities for its support of heart function, blood sugar and cholesterol.

    Goji berry

    another popular superfood, influences the Liver, Lung and Kidney channels, nourishing and tonifying Liver and Kidneys. Goji berry also benefits Jing, enriches Yin energy and improves vision. Dubbed "the anti-aging fruit," goji berry has been consumed for centuries in the Far East. Its nutritional healing properties enhance immunity and improve liver function.

    Does Research Support HairVive™?

    Several published human clinical trials have supported the traditional use of He Shou Wu as an effective all-natural hair growth herb, that offers other important anti-aging benefits as well. Over 60% of people experienced hair regrowth within 3 months after taking He Shou Wu.2

    In studies with aging mouse models, He Shou Wu was shown to lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels, in addition to reducing brain pathological changes. It has also demonstrated the ability to promote learning and memory.3

    Mulberry fruit contains compounds such as anthocyanins that demonstrate antidiabetic and antioxidative properties.4 Mulberry fruit extracts protect dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease animal models, increase densities of neuron, and enhance memory. Thus, mulberry fruit is a potential natural cognitive enhancer and neuroprotectant.5,6

    Goji berry has shown a wide range of health benefits in studies that improve general well-being and anti-aging. The primary active components of Goji berries are polysaccharides. They inhibit cell overgrowth in mice; increase glucose metabolism and insulin secretion; protect the liver and neurons; improve learning and memory etc.7

    What is the formula composition?

    A proprietary blend of water extraction of

    Polygoni Multiflori He Shou Wu
    Prepared Rehmannia Root Shu Di Huang
    Glossy Privet Fruit Nu Zhen Zi
    Mulberry Fruit Sang Shen
    Goji Berry Go Ji Zi
    What is Available?

    Each bottle contains 80 veggie capsules. Each capsule contains 400 mg HairVive™ Complex.

    Purity & Strength You Can Depend On

    HairVive™ is made from authentic Chinese herbs of premium quality. We use a proprietary extraction technology that optimizes the unique properties of each individual herb to maximize the extraction of active ingredients. We are able to generate extracts concentrated by a factor of 5 to 15 times, which means 1 gram of our extract is equal to the strength of 5 to 15 grams of raw herbs. This is a concentration ratio hardly achieved by others in the field.

    To further maintain the purity of HairVive™, we do not introduce fillers to the extract during the encapsulation process, unlike other manufacturers.

    Other dietary supplements commonly contain a long list of other ingredients such as Magnesium Stearate, whereas HairVive™ contains nothing more than the HairVive™ complex itself. As a result, we can deliver an adequate quantity of the formula in a small dose of HairVive™.

    HairVive™ is guaranteed to be free of pharmaceuticals. It contains no preservatives, no alcohol, no artificial flavor or color, no gluten, and no sugar. Heavy metal contents are tested for compliance with the standards set by US Pharmacopeia.

    All Natural & Vegetarian

    All of the components in HairVive™ are 100% natural, down to the veggie capsule shell. Even the extraction process itself is carried out with water as the solvent.

    How do I use it?

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for my husband My husband have taken one bottle of Hairvive so far. His hair becomes darker. It seems works very well on his type who needs nurture Yin. I took two bottles of Hairvive, but it works slow on me. I think I need traditional type of QI BAO MEI RAN Wan, which can nurture both Yin and Yang at the same time. I suggest all of your medicine can be classified according to 《中医体质分类判定标准及中医体质分类与判定自测表》. Thank you.
