Jin Kui Shen Qi Wan/ Kidney Health


Jin Kui Shen Qi Pian (Jin Kui Shen Qi Wan, YanVive™, Jin Gui Shen Qi Tang, 金匮肾气片) is among the most regarded ancient Chinese herbal formulas.

How to use:

8 pills each time, 3 times daily, 30mins after meal.

200 pills per bottle.


What does it do

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), YanVive can replenish Yang due to the Yang insufficiency of the kidney. The kidney is the innate foundation of all organs with respect to the Yin-Yang principles, Qi essence etc. When the kidney is diminished functionally, other organs suffer as a result. Thus it is vitally important to maintain the Kidney in a good state. This explains why many symptoms seemingly unrelated to the Kidney may be relieved by restoring the Kidney Yin-Yang.

YanVive is composed of Yin-promoting YinVive and additional herbs that promote Yang. While modern biomedical studies have yet to reveal the basis of the Kidney Yin-Yang, research of YinVive suggests it may offer support for immune function, healthy blood sugar levels, as well as supporting normal hormone levels (see YinVive).

YanVive is designated in China Pharmacopoeia for Yang insufficiency of Kidney, weakness and soreness of the loins and the knees, cold feeling in the limbs, and frequent urination. Published and unpublished human clinical studies have supported the use of YanVive in numerous applications. In many cases, YanVive can be applied to the same symptoms as YinVive. Whether YanVive or YinVive is used depends on whether the signs of Yin or Yang deficiency is present. Highlighted below are some instances in which YanVive may be used.

  • Lower back weakness due to the Kidney Yang deficiency, which may manifest as weakness and soreness of the waist and legs, cold in the limbs or even the whole body, a pale complexion and tiredness. These are often complaints for people, especially professionals who spend hours in front of a computer each day and who are middle-aged.
  • Sexual wellness. In the case of Kidney Yang deficiency, one may experience poor male performance. The low back feels weak the next day and it takes longer to achieve a follow-up erection.
