A must for every household!
I first took this product hoping it would calm my nerves after I got in a car accident. It really helped and it had no side effects whatsoever. Whenever I am overly stressed or anxious, this product calms me right down. It calms kids down too.

Very Effective for PreMenopausal/Estrogenic
In my late 40s now, I've struggled w/ menstrual irregularity for decades, and thought the Bio-Id Progesterone was something I'd have to take indefinitely... WarmMenses has been so effective for me transitioning from the BioIdenticals.
THWatson from Metro Atlanta
Works for me!
I've been taking this supplement for a while now and I hardly ever get night sweats anymore. My hot flashes are also much less frequent. Highly recommend it!
Bettay100 from San Antonio, TX
It Really Works!
I was having liver and rising heat symptoms, accompanied by extreme irritability, inability to sleep, and constipation. Within one day of using Long Dan Xie Gan Wan, I felt considerable relief from all of the above listed symptoms.
Willow from FL
Works fast and well!
I rarely get headaches... I woke up one morning with a terrible headache which caused me nausea... I took about 7 tablets and rested for about 20 minutes, after which time I was much better.
Heidi from Orlando, FL
Love this product!
I started using Pulsegenic and I was amazed by the results, as I noticed a huge difference after taking this product for a few months at lower doses. I feel my respiration is much better and generally I feel much stronger.
Slawek from Kraków, Poland
This WORKS!!
I bought this a month ago and my knee has never felt this good. I am a martial arts instructor and speed/agility/performance trainer, so I need my legs feeling good. This has helped me quicker and better than any joint supplement I've tried.
Qlew123 from Aurora, CO
Cooling off
I am 64 years old and have been hot flashing every 2 hours everyday since I turned 51. Nothing seemed to help until I started using Yin Vive Cool and Menoplease. Now I only hot flash once at night. I can finally get some sleep. Thank you.
The best ever remedy
my enlarged prostate seems to be gone because urinal flow and morning highlight are all back. I used several methods over the past 10 years, all helped some but Prostate Sure is without a doubt the best and most helpful remedy I found.
Martin from Bangkok
It works
I bought 2 bottles for my 19 year old son who's had bad breath not from his mouth or teeth or tongue. I suspected it's within his stomach digestive system. After taking the pills for 3 days I noticed the difference. No more bad breath.
123456 from Vancouver,WA
Exceptional results!
I have been taking Breathmooth for a few weeks and already experience much less congestion. I can breath more deeply and easily and I am delighted to have found a natural remedy that 'works'.
Terry33 from Westport, CT
Great product that works!
I bought these tablets less than a month ago. I had minimal cramping during my cycle and I ovulated to!!!
Abenagha38 from Georgia
WORKED EXACTLY like my herbalist said
I've felt more grounded and calmer, and my energy has been MUCH more directed/focused. I have a lot of heat I need to expel, and it's been helping with that as well.
Megggie3000 from New York, NY
Takes care of several issues!
I keep this in my arsenal for stomach issues-----occasional nausea/loose stool/lack of appetite/and a full or hard feeling when I press on my belly. This formulation has helped a lot.
DeeDee from Florida
Awakens vital energies
I have been using this product for the past 2 years. It has revived vital energies and boosted romantic endurance. This is a far better option for men than a rx medication. No negative side effects and started working after one month.
Ronin from Bay Area, CA
Works Good For Me
The formula...helps support my body's efforts to manage various types of "heat" signs. It's my first choice if I get a tickle in my throat or the typical signs of seasonal respiratory challenges.
OlyGary from Washington State
Really helps!
I purchased this for gastric upset/loose stools/chills. This product helped me feel better in one day! The loose stools returned to normal--and the chills subsided. I definitely recommed this product.
Snake from New York
Just What I Needed
I spent a lot of time laying down on the couch watching tv feeling exhausted...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 exercise class.
Mary from Cincinnati, OH
Great benefits
I bought this for weight control. Haven't seen much change in that area. To my surprise! It has really cleared up skin, regulated my bowels, which has given me energy.
Kajia from Omaha, NE
Great product which has really helped
I had very little hair on the top of my head and what hair I had was thin with scalp easily showing through... My hair is now much thicker, with no bald spot at all... The grey is almost completely gone. Everyone says I look 10 years younger.
Tom56 from Wichita, KS
Completely surprised!
My hip had been a source of discomfort and pain, even in my sleep. Just the simple act to rolling over in bed was an awakening experience. I can honestly say that I’m able to move more freely with less discomfort, and my sleep has gotten way better.
Nelson from Southern Vermont
Works wonders!!!
I literally have to change undergarments several times a day from sweat & moisture... In about 3 days I noticed a dramatic difference. At the end of the first week I no longer had to wear a panty liner. All the Heat and sweat has just gone away.
JJ1984 from Denver, CO
Good quality, a potent formula
I would classify as being on the extreme (Yang deficiency) (feeling cold in the body as well as the limbs, emaciated, underweight). So I decided to try YanVive Plus, and was surprised at the difference. It was much more potent than expected.
Love this product!
I have been using this product for a few years and am very happy with the results. I have an overactive production of nasal mucus. This product helps so much, less mucus, keeps my ears from filling up with liquid.
Marypat from Omaha, NE
This product is amazing. It has been a life saver for me. The night sweats are nearly absent, the same for hot flashes. My moods are calm and I feel stable. This product has given me back my life.
Cindylouwho from Wisconsin
Amazing product!
Product was recommended by my holistic doctor and it is our go to pill for nausea, upset stomach of any sort, motion sickness, stomach flu etc. These herbs have been a life saver in my home and it's a must have in your medicine cabinet.
Frances from Sunrise, FL
Product that actually works
This is the very best product I have found to clear my sinuses and keep them clear. Would not be without Bi Yan in my medicine cabinet.
BillS from Sun City Center, FL
Great quality and prompt delivery!
I've been taking this formula for over a month and it's made quite a difference in my energy, libido and overall sense of wellness.
Dmedic72 from Austin, TX
Great product
This product is amazing. My menstrual cycle is no longer heavy and my fibroid have decreased. I have only been using this product for a month. These small pill are working wonders for me.
Christine from Florida
It really works
my daughter got the typical "shao yang" symptoms: felt bitterness in her mouth, felt dryness in her throat, felt wanting to vomit, and sometimes felt chill and sometimes felt hot. The night I gave her this, all the above symptoms diminished.

What is it?

Guang Ci Tang®(广慈堂) has been a leading US brand of Chinese medicine since the 1990s. Guang Ci Tang® Chinese medicine products are 5X concentrated, more than double the strength of similar products from other leading brands. Guang Ci Tang® Chinese medicine is guaranteed to be the best of its kind in terms of strength, purity, safety, and affordability. Each product has been carefully produced in a cGMP-certified facility and fully tested for safety before it reaches our customers.

Superiority of Guang Ci Tang products starts with their formulations. As anyone who is trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine may tell, a right combination of herbs is crucial to the success in practicing Chinese medicine. Often than not, products bearing the same name have different formulations both in terms of the variety of Chinese herbs and the dose of each single herb. Guang Ci Tang has experts who are masters of both Chinese medicine literature and Chinese medicine practices. Many formulas Guang Ci Tang develops have their own uniqueness that may maximize their efficacy.


Chinese herbal formulas play a central role in the theory and practices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Many formulas were invented one thousand years ago and remain widely used today as an integral part of China's national healthcare system. These classics are truly time-tested for safety and effectiveness. We are proud to inherit these treasures and feel honored to share them with you.

As our society faces many modern health challenges, Chinese medicine is constantly evolving to combat them. Our team of scientists and TCM doctors stay abreast of the newest research and breakthroughs in both TCM and modern biosciences. Then we incorporate that newfound knowledge into the development of our signature formulas that address many contemporary health issues. Guang Ci Tang currently offers over 100 Chinese herbal formulas.


To meet our strict quality standards, Guang Ci Tang® products are manufactured in collaboration with some of the largest and best pharmaceutical companies in China, in state-of-the-art cGMP certified facilities. Only premium quality Chinese herbs are used. The botanical identity of each herb is verified by our expert professional staff based on the accepted standards set forth in the Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to ensure authenticity, quality, potency, and safety. Furthermore, many Chinese herbs must be processed in highly specific ways to achieve the desired medicinal properties or to eliminate toxicity. At ActiveHerb, we take care to perform these preparations in accordance with the TCM tradition.

In order to produce Guang Ci Tang® tablets, herbs are first thoroughly cleaned, then mixed together and extracted in water in a steel extraction tank. This process follows the ancient practice of decocting Chinese herbs in a pot, but allows precise control over the extracting temperature and time. The modern extraction process reproduces the traditional method to recover active ingredients, but has been shown to yield a superior degree of potency. Essential oils, which typically evaporate from the herbs during heating, are automatically recovered through the extraction process. After extraction, herb residues are discarded while the extraction liquid is recovered and pumped into a condenser. Here, the remaining water is evaporated, leaving a highly concentrated paste. This paste is turned into tablets or teapills by adding a small amount of dry powdered herbs from the original herbal formula. In this way, we avoid the use of unnecessary binders and ensure the purity of our products.

The state-of-the-art quality control center. Extensive laboratory testing is done here to ensure compliance and quality.

A manufacturing room is seen from the hallway and is equipped with advanced instruments. In order to access the manufacturing rooms, one must change into another sterile coat and shoes before entering.

The entire cGMP facility is a completely clean environment. In order to access to the entry hallway, one must wear a sterile coat and shoes. The manufacturing rooms are located along both sides of the entrance hallway.

5:1 Concentration

The standard PRC Pharmacopoeia procedure for producing concentrated Chinese herbal pills is based on a concentration of 2:1, meaning that 2g of raw herbs will yield 1g of finished pills. These pills weigh about 180mg each. Each dose requires 8 pills, which weighs 1.44g total and is equal to 3g of raw herbs.

Guang Ci Tang® strives to be the most potent and effective Chinese medicine available. We developed proprietary extraction and concentration technology that allows us to make our tablets and pills at a final concentration of 5:1, meaning 1 gram of tablets or pills is equal to 5 grams of raw herbs. As each Guang Ci Tang® tablet or pill weighs 200mg, each pill is equal to 1 gram of raw herbs. This is the highest concentration available for Chinese medicine pills and tablets, and is more than double the concentration of standard pills from other leading brands of Chinese medicine. As a result, patients are able to reduce the number of pills required per dose by half to achieve the same powerful effect.

Tablets vs Pills

Traditionally, Chinese herbal formulas are served in liquid (Tang) after being cooked in water. The pill form (Wan) was developed when the Chinese pharmaceutical industry started to produce traditional Chinese herbal formulas at higher volumes. Pills are now produced by every TCM manufacturer. While Guang Ci Tang® also produces round pills, our flat tablets (Pian) truly exemplify our commitment to excellence and innovation, and set us apart from the rest. Guang Ci Tang® tablets are uniquely made with proprietary technology that requires little use of a binding agent. Tablets made by other Chinese medicine brands frequently include large amounts (up to 50% in some cases) of inert ingredients, such as magnesium stearate, which are mixed with the herbal extract. Guang Ci Tang® tablets are more expensive to make but they have the advantage of being easily absorbed by the body. Moreover, our tablets may also be administered as a tea after being dissolved in water, or may be given as a powder after being crushed.

1 tablet = 1 gram of raw herbs

1 teapill = 1 gram of raw herbs

After all, it is our longstanding commitment to quality and safety that has built Guang Ci Tang®’s reputation as a leader in the industry.
