Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan (Du Huo Ji Sheng Pian, Du Huo Ji Sheng Tang, JointsJoy™, 独活寄生片) is a Chinese herbal remedy invented over a thousand years ago to alleviate pains due to Wind and Dampness. Today it is used for rheumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic back pain, sciatica, etc.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), wind, cold, and dampness are invasive to the body if one lives or works long in such an environment. They hamper the flow of Qi (vital energy) and blood and slowly weaken the function of the liver and kidney, which are fundamental to the generation of Qi, blood and Yin-Yang. Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan acts to expel wind and remove dampness, removes obstruction in Qi and blood circulation to relieve pain, invigorates Qi and nourishes the blood.

Modern biomedical studies relate the applications of Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan to arthritis. Du Huo Ji Sheng Tang is shown to inhibit inflammation reactions, to inhibit pain in several animal studies. It may also enhance the function of microphages to clear inflammatory tissues and increase the blood circulation1.

Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan is indicated in China Pharmacopoeia2 for blood nourishment, Qi invigoration, wind expelling, and dampness removal. The symptoms include cold pain, stiffness, and numbness of the low back and knees due to wind, cold, and dampness.

Below are highlights of some published human clinical studies on Du Huo Ji Sheng Wan1.

• Arthritis (rheumatic or rheumatoid). In one study 41 patients with the condition for 3 months to 21 years were treated, 7 were recovered, 21 showed significant improvement, 10 showed some improvement, and 3 no improvement. In another trial of 2 to 3 months treatment of 52 patients, 35 showed significant improvement.

• Sciatica and Rheumatic Back Pain. In a trial of 80 sciatica patients, 65 were recovered and 10 improved.

• Osteoarthritis. 14 of 24 patients were recovered after treatment of 1 week to 3 months.

    Great formula

    This formula began relieving on my joint pain within the first week.


    I found this site from a Google search after I thought about TCM and how it has worked for centuries. I bought this because it mentioned my exact symptoms of stiffness when it's damp or cold. I started with 3 pills and felt the difference immediately. I just went up to 4 and it's even better. I highly recommend these and will be buying more.

    JointsJoy with Sciatica

    Been taking this herb over 3 months now, my pain improved, tolerable with few flare ups. Taking this with other herb-sciatica and yinvive which improved my arthritis pain.

    Great Value

    I stated this supplement at the advice of my acupuncturist! It's works quick and effective on sciatic back pain!! It help blood circulation and I will continue to take this supplement as needed. I started with 6 am and 6 pm on an empty stomach. No stomach upset or side effects. Price on this site is excellent and I received a prompt delivery!

    No more pain.

    I have used Joints Joy for the past 2 months, it has eliminated the pain in both my knees. If you have pain, this is the product to get.

    easy to take

    I bought about 1month ago. Joint pain is easing. I will order more.


    I'm new to TCM. I've taken JointsJoy for two weeks. Within two days I noticed improvement. I'm a 66 year old woman who has just recently developed much pain in both hips. After reviewing the products on this site I decided to try it. It gives me relief. Hen I take it morning and night I have no pain. If I forget it the pain is back. I highly recommend this formula. I had reason to phone the company. The representative was kind, personable and helpful.

    Worked well on bad knees and shoulder

    I ordered Joint Joy in addition to Cordalys Relaxe for help with my stiff knees and old injury in my right shoulder. I take 6 tabs of Joint Joy & 6 tabs of Cordalys Relaxe 3 times a day and its working finally. I would not recommend taking any less if you have "old" injuries, or have had arthritis for many years. It takes years to be in that much pain, so you will need 18 tabs of each per day initially to get well. I am hoping soon to be able to reduce the mid day dose but for now afraid to change anything. Sleeping well at night, get up with 60% less pain and stiffness. It also helps my lower back. Very good combination

    Helped me a lot with shoulder pain

    I have been suffering from shoulder pain since quite a while now. My wife actually bought the medicine for our old dog (really seemed to help the dog as well) and gave it to me to try it. I felt relief after taking it for about 3 to 4 weeks (6 tablets three times a day). I will keep on taking it, because I also could cut down my pain medication. The doctor said I have a damaged rotator cuff. My wife orders at your company since a few years and we are very satisfied with your products and service.

    less pain!

    I think this is working, so I'm purchasing another couple bottles.

    Great product

    I bought a month ago to use for my elbow until today it's working. I feel about 65/100 better. I think herb it will reduce my pain slowly but it's working. I will buy it again when it run out. Great product. Thanks!

    Really helps joint pain!

    I use 6 tabs twice daily and it has helped with joint pain. I can really tell when I don't take it.

    This works

    I just started it... I made some health decisions and diet changes and using Du Huo Ji SHeng Pian .... These changes make me feel better.......
