The Amazing Health Benefits of Jiao Gu Lan

Jiao Gu Lan is one of the many tonic herbs with the Chinese Materia Medica.  Jiao Gu Lan has to be one of the greatherbs in the world! So much longevity and health restoration is associated with this herb. It is almost hard to find a place to start with when it comes to the healing and corrective properties of this herb.

A lot of the following information is taken from studies done in China, Korea and Japan on Gynostemma pentaphyllum (GP) and its gypenosides:

Let’s first take a look at its Cholesterol Lowering Abilities: Jiao Gu Lan lowers total cholesterol by making it larger in size and thereby reducing its numbers in testing. It also raises HDL (which is not a cholesterol at all as the medical system would have you believe but is a protein binder). More than 20 papers have been published on the subject with effectiveness reported as ranging from 67 to 93%. It also inhibits platelet aggregation which lessens the chance of a stroke or heart attack; which cholesterol lowering drugs do nothing for.

As for blood pressure, 223 patients were divided into three groups. One group took Ginseng, the next took Jiao Gu Lan and the last took the blood pressure medication, “Indapamide”. The effectiveness was rated at 46% for Ginseng, 82% for Jiao Gu Lan and 93% for Indapamide. Jaio Gu Lan modulates blood pressure, lowering it when it is too high and raising it when it is too low.

As an antioxidant, this herb has been shown in tests to lower the amount of superoxide radical and hydrogen peroxide in certain white blood cells, an excellent indicator of antioxidant activity. Jiao Gu Lan also has the remarkable property of increasing endogenous SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) in the body. SOD is one of the body’s most important antioxidants and studies show that charting SOD levels in various animal species is a reliable indicator of their longevity. Trials in humans showed that SOD levels returned to youthful levels after taking 20 mg of Gypenosides (active principle) daily for one month.

Jiao Gu Lan also modulates the nervous system. It calms an overexcited nervous system and stimulates a depressed one. 300 professional athletes were the subject of a study. All the athletes reported that taking this herb before competition made them vigorous and alert with quick reflexes. Yet, it also made them less nervous.

112 cases of insomnia reported a sleep improvement of 89 to 95 percent.

This herb modulates lymphocyte formation and increases lymphocyte activity. It was also found to greatly enhance the activity of NK (Natural Killer) cells in cancer patients. Animal tests proved that crude gynosaponins possessed obvious anticancer and anti-ulcer attributes, inhibited the side effects of glucocortico-hormones, promote cell metabolism, benefit sleep and lower blood lipids. Gynosaponins might be able to inhibit the multiplying of cancer cells in the liver, uterus, lung, etc. by as much as 20-80%. (Shown by tests with mice using experimental sarcoma-180.)

So as you can see, Jiao Gu Lan offers a wonderful range of verified health beneifits without any of unpleasant side-effects of pharmauctial drugs that are often prescribe to treat high chlorsterol, high blood oressure, insomnia and aniexty.
