What is Jiaogulan?
Praised as the "Herb of Immortality" in China, Jiaogulan (Gynostemma Pentaphyllum) is a climbing vine of the cucumber/gourd family, believed to contribute to a long and disease-free life due to its powerful anti-aging effects and possibly the widest spectrum of health benefits of any plant known to science.
Due to the census reports in certain villages of the Guizhou, Guangxi and Sichuan provinces, revealing low incidence of cancer, senility and other serious diseases, and an abnormally high percentage of people living to 100 years old, the Chinese government commissioned a team of researchers from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences to conduct an investigation.
Dr. Jialiu Liu "The Father of Jiaogulan" and a team of 16 scientists found one common trait of the centenarians they consumed a tea made from Jiaogulan. After many years studying hundreds of herbs, Dr. Liu came to the realization Jiaogulan was not only the rainforest's most precious gift but in fact nature's greatest treasure. Dr. Liu began to use Jiaogulan in his medical university hospital with great success for a wide variety of conditions, and before long, numerous hospitals used it throughout China.
There have been hundreds of studies, both animal and human, on this remarkable Adaptogen producing compelling health benefits. Adaptogens decrease the organism's susceptibility to illness by allowing it to "adapt" too stressful circumstances. Adaptogens support normal metabolism while helping restore balance to the immune, nervous, and endocrine systems, allowing the body to maintain optimal homeostasis. They usually benefit the liver, cardiovascular system, kidneys, and pancreas.
Scientists have determined Jiaogulan to contain six times as many saponins as Panax Ginseng. Many have proclaimed it to be the King of Adaptogens.
Jiaogulan heart benefits:
Studies have shown Jiaogulan has the remarkable ability to both protect and stimulate the production of Nitric Oxide when your body produces too little of it, or to limit its production when it is out of control. At normal body concentrations, Nitric Oxide is critically important for the proper functioning of all major body systems, including the cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems.
One double-blind clinical study of patients with high blood pressure showed Jiaogulan almost as effective as the high blood pressure drug, Indapamide.
Studies have shown jiaogulan demonstrated the ability to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride levels while raising good cholesterol (HDL) .
Studies have shown Jiaogulan enhances the body's defenses by protecting and boosting the immune system. Jiaogulan scavenges free radicals within the body, minimizing DNA mutations that lead to tumors. As an antioxidant, the herb protects the integrity of the immune system from free radicals and environmental toxins.
Jiaogulan Brain Benefits:
In human and animal studies, the herb was shown to improve brain functions like memory, concentration, and learning, especially with the elderly. Jiaogulan protects and enhances the function of the central and peripheral nervous systems, mainly through its antioxidant properties and its ability to regulate Nitric Oxide production. Nitric Oxide plays an important role in learning and memory by helping nerve cells in the brain communicate with each other.
Jiaogulan for Athletic Performance:
Many top athletes and bodybuilders use Jiaogulan because it enhances their performance by energizing the body and increasing physical strength, stamina, endurance and muscle tone. Due to Jiaogulans ability to regulate the production of Nitric Oxide, it provides more of the oxygen and glucose the muscles need to work at peak levels longer, improving stamina and energy.
Anxiety and Stress Benefits:
One double-blind placebo-controlled human clinical trial demonstrated the herb's ability to significantly reduce anxiety and stress in groups of high anxiety and normal individuals by over 20% and 10% respectively, as evaluated by standard anxiety and stress tests. Jiaogulan has also shown promise in the treatment of depression.
Weight Loss Benefits:
Jiaogulan helps reduce weight in overweight people, by activating AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). The herb's ability to increase insulin sensitivity in the body also has beneficial weight-stabilizing or weight-loss effects.
With thousands of clinical studies Jiaogulan's other benefits include:
Cleansing the body of toxins.
Protecting the Liver and improving Kidney Function.
Fights Respiratory Issues and Supports the Lungs.
Protects the gastro-intestinal system.
Balances Hormonal Function.
Protects and Benefits the reproductive system
Helps treat Insomnia due to stress or anxiety.
Jiaogulan's safety record is outstanding.
Of the many hundreds of scientific studies on Jiaogulan, a significant number of which have checked for toxicity or adverse side-effects, there has never been a report of any toxic effects to any organ of the body.
In Conclusion, thanks to the Chinese Government and Dr. Jialiu Liu (The Father of Jiaogulan) for 20 years of clinical studies and research of this remarkable Herb, we now have the opportunity to reap the many benefits of Jiaogulan.
