Our Story

The Good Life Starts Here


In Chinese, hao means good and its character 好 represents harmony. The Hao Life was created to bring more of both into your life.

Chinese medicine has nourished me as I’ve transitioned through the years, from motherhood to menopause. Now, my goal is to share the best of Asian wellness practices with you, starting with its nourishing medicine. With the help of world-renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner David Melladew, we’ve updated classical Chinese herbal blends to help us all handle modern life, naturally and effectively.

We also named our company “The Good Life” because there is nothing better than sharing the best of our healing traditions for the collective good.

Here’s to your health in harmony.

Feeling Good Shouldn't Be Complicated

Chinese herbs are incredibly complex by design—that’s what makes them work. But that’s also what keeps many people from using them. Often, the labels at your local health food store are difficult to decipher. If a specific blend is recommended to you by a TCM practitioner, concocting them in the typical tincture can require extra time and effort.

We wanted something that was easy—easy to understand, easy to trust, and easy to take.

Here’s what you can expect from each of our formulas*:

We explain how each of our formulas works from an Eastern and Western perspective. And we’ve taken the guesswork out of taking the herbs by concentrating them into simple daily tablets.

To make sure what’s on the label is what's in the bottle—and nothing else—every ingredient is screened for purity and potency by a third party, and certified for safety by the NPA (Natural Products Association).

These formulas are way more than their individual plant parts. That’s why we call them Superblends. When they combine, they enhance the efficacy of each other and the formula as a whole. The proof that they work is not only well-documented in their centuries of use, but in clinical research that spans East and West.

Health in Harmony

Herbs are just one step on the journey toward The Hao Life. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, wellbeing is supported through a variety of modalities—including acupuncture, meditation, and movement.

While Western science often views and treats parts of the body separately, Traditional Chinese Medicine views the body as an interconnected ecosystem. Each modality aims to balance the body by targeting the five vital organ systems—Heart, Spleen, Liver, Kidneys, and Lungs.

That’s why each of our Herbal Superblends corresponds to one of these systems. By maintaining harmony in one system, you maintain harmony in the whole for ideal health.
