Jiaogulan Tea (Alkalizing)
Balance, energy and well-being in a delicious tea
If you're looking for a balanced energy source that strengthens the immune system and provides heightened alertness and physical performance, all while tasting great, then Jiaogulan could be just your cup of tea. Jiaogulan tea is made from the Chinese plant Gynostemma pentaphyllum, a vine known as the "herb of immortality."
It might not make you live forever, but it certainly does have plenty to offer in terms of health and lifestyle benefits: greater energy and stamina, more restful sleep, better emotional balance and alertness. Fans of our Jiaogulan Tea say they notice a difference within a week.
The research on Jiaogulan is not only promising—it's astronomical! Studies have shown that this little-known herb offers benefits for people with:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Low immunity
- Erectile dysfunction
- Stroke risk
- Heart attack risk
It also improves athletic performance and may be beneficial in reducing cellular aging and age-related illness. Patients using Jiaogulan experience renewed energy, mental alertness, sounder sleep, and a better balance in their stress response. It's been found to balance the body's hormonal and nervous system response so that it calms and soothes stress, but provides stimulation and energy if you're tired or depressed.
Adapting to the Body's Needs
Jiaogulan is considered an adaptogen for its innate ability to provide balance and support in whatever way the body needs it most. People who are stressed find that Jiaogulan has a soothing, relaxing effect, while those who are tired, sluggish or depressed discover renewed energy and vitality.
The natural compounds found in Jaiogulan are non-invasive and have no known side effects, but can help with everything from hypertension and anxiety to troubled sleep. Even headaches, blood sugar imbalances, and endocrine problems respond well to the regulatory effects of this tea.
Energy and Youthfulness with Antioxidants
Antioxidants are naturally occurring chemicals that fight the aging process that damages cells and tissues. As a result, antioxidants are powerful forces for energy, vitality, stamina, and beauty—and Jiaogulan tea is full of them.
The tea is rich in glutathione and superoxide dismutase, two antioxidants that protect the body's cells from damage, preventing illness and starting the healing process naturally.
*Jiaogulan is not advised for anyone taking prescription drugs for the heart or that regulate immunity, or for women who are pregnant or breast-feeding. Please consult your doctor if you have any questions before using this supplement.
What is Jiaogulan?
Called "southern ginseng" for its ginseng-like effect on energy and stamina, Jiaogulan is a leafy vine cultivated in the south of China. It is a traditional Chinese beverage, used daily for its health benefits and sweet, delicious taste. Jiaogulan has been used as a tea for centuries in long-lived communities in China, and can also be found growing wild in Korea, Japan, and Thailand.
Although it has been listed in holistic Chinese medical texts since the 1500's, the discovery of Jiaogulan by modern medical science is as recent as the 1970's, when Dr. Masahiro Nagai began to research the herb as a healthier alternative to artificial sweeteners. Since that initial study, a number of other doctors and scientists have taken an interest in the many benefits that Jiaogulan offers without side effects.
