Jiaogulan Herb Pure Dried Organic Leaf Tea
Pure, top-quality organic Jiaogulan herb. Jiaogulan (Gynostemma pentaphyllum) 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”. Jiaogulan has traditionally been used as both an adaptogen and a rejuvenating herb. Jiaogulan is used as an antioxidant herb, containing saponins as well as trace minerals, amino acids, proteins, and vitamins. Phenolic compounds from Jiaogulan appear to offer potent antioxidant activity.
The natural herb contains high amounts of gypenosides, a group of triterpene saponins that are the same as or very similar to ginsenosides from the Panax ginseng species. As such, the uses of Jiaogulan and Ginseng seem to be very similar except Jiaogulan may be even more useful for supporting the bodies natural healthy blood sugar regulation. We also have a standardized Jiaogulan extract available that has been concentrated to contain a minimum of 98% gypenoside.
