Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum)$11.80 – $47.00
Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) Herb Extract Standardized to 98% Gypenoside.
Jiaogulan is a deciduous climbing vine native to southern China, southern Korea, northern Vietnam, and Japan. In China, it is also known as “Herb of Immortality” due to its special qualities. Jiaogulan has traditionally been used as both an adaptogen and a rejuvenating herb. Jiaogulan is believed to be a potent antioxidant herb, containing many health supporting saponins as well as trace minerals, amino acids, proteins, and vitamins.
The natural herb contains high amounts of ginsenosides, phytochemical components that were once thought to be wholly unique to Ginseng (Panax ginseng). As such, the uses of Jiaogulan and Ginseng seem to be very similar except Jiaogulan may be even more useful for supporting healthy blood sugar regulation within the body, due to the unique types of ginsenosides (gypenoside) the herb contains.
