Herba gynostemma - jiao gu lan - anti-aging


Jiao gu lan is the ginseng of the south. It is a one of the most popular antioxidant and anti-aging herbs in China and India.

Jiaogulan is used for high cholesterol, high blood pressure. It is also used for strengthening the immune system, increasing stamina and endurance, increasing resistance to environmental stress (as an "adaptogen"), improving memory, and preventing hair loss.

It has the classic function of clearing away heat and toxic material. "Southern Ginseng" Jiaogulan contains a large quantity of these saponins, known also as gypenosides. The structure of the gypenosides is very similar to the panaxosides (also known as ginsenosides) found in ginseng.

Contains many amino acids, vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Gynostemma is generally reinforcing to overall health and has a strong anti-fatigue effect.

Japanese studies have indicated that Gynostemma has a double-direction, regulating influence on the central nervous system, meaning it is calming when one is overexcited and stimulating when one is depressed. Japanese studies have also shown that Gynostemma is clinically useful in a number of mental and neurological conditions, including simple depression and anxiety 

Gynostemma is often used to treat inflammation and chronic bronchitis, stop coughs and remove sputum. It can also be beneficial to the circulatory system by lowering high blood pressure, decreasing the level of high blood fats and reducing the incidence of blood clots and arteriosclerosis.

Gynostemma can also be used to control body weight. As a diet herb, it accelerates the body's metabolism, adjusts blood sugar and reduces blood fat. Some athletes who consume Gynostemma report improved appetites and more lean muscle.

Scientific research studies in China have shown that jiaogulan decreases cholesterol by improving the liver's ability to send sugar and carbohydrates to the muscles for conversion to energy instead of turning the sugar into triglycerides which the body stores as fat. 3 It lowers LDL's (bad cholesterol) while raising HDL's (good cholesterol). It improves fat metabolism, reduces blood fat levels and depresses lipid peroxide and fat sediment in the blood vessels.

While it is great for rectifying high cholesterol and obesity problems, it can also improve and strengthen the digestion, allowing an underweight person to increase absorption of nutrients and gain weight in the form of lean muscle mass. This regulatory effect on bodily functions is the hallmark of an adaptogen.

A study at Guiyang Medical College in China has shown that a jiaogulan recipe increased strength and endurance in the body. Considering the above statements overall, jiaogulan becomes the perfect herb for anyone who wants to improve their competitive edge in any field of athletic performance.

Adaptogenic functions of jiaogulan are demonstrated in its biphasic effects on brain functions, which energize or calm the system depending upon the body's need.  Jiaogulan also aids the regulation of hormonal functions in both men and women. The healthy maintenance of these physiological actions plays a major role in the body's ability to cope with stress. Jiaogulan has also shown its effectiveness, in clinical research studies, in helping the body resist depression of the immune system and other stress-related symptoms. 

Jiaogulan has also demonstrated anti-inflammatory activities through its many saponins.  Jiaogulan also helps the body to resist depression of the immune system and other stress-related symptoms.
