Gynostemma Pentaphyllum (botanical name), also known as Jiaogulan (Chinese name), is a five leafed adaptogenic herb. It has emerged as one of the more promising natural remedies for our 21st century health concerns due to its unique ability of restoring homeostatis (balance and equilibrium) to all five of the main body systems which are the cardiovascular, digestive, immune, nervous and reproductive systems.

"Ginseng at a tea price"
The chemical constituents responsible for the adaptogenic characteristic of Gynostemma are saponins (gypenosides). Gynostemma contains the widest range of saponins from all the plants in nature. There are more than 75 different saponins in Gynostemma Pentaphyllum which is nearly four times the number of saponins found in Ginseng. The PubMed database already lists over 11,000 research papers that explore and explain the benefits of saponins.

In the latter half of the 20th century, a nationwide census in China caused officials to inspect a mountainous area with the largest percentage of centenarian inhabitants. Further inquiries into the lifestyle of these people who were living for more than 100 years revealed one common element... a regular intake of Gynostemma Pentaphyllum !

Lowering Cholesterol
When it comes to cardiovascular health, the big advantage with Gynostemma is that it seems to reduce both cholesterol and triglycerides. It functions, in part, by binding to the cholesterol and preventing it from being absorbed by the body. Studies show that Gynostemma also helps the body convert carbohydrates directly to the muscles for energy instead of first converting them into triglycerides and storing them as fat.

Weight control
Gynostemma has developed a large following in Asia in weight control programs. It has a double direction efficacy regarding body weight. It will help overweight people to reduce weight and help slim people and athletes to gain weight. It helps adjust blood sugar levels and reduce blood fat (hyperlipidemia) which are vital steps in attaining healthy metabolic function. Gynostemma helps maintain healthy bowels. It acts as a cleanser in the stomach and intestines, eliminating the body of toxins and waste.

As an antioxidant, gynostemma boosts the immune system by increasing the number and activity level of white blood cells. It strengthens the digestive system by assisting in liver function. It helps relieve stress by soothing and relaxing the central nervous system. It is calming when one is overexcited and stimulating when one is depressed. Studies have shown that Gynostemma is useful in a number of neurological conditions, including depression, anxiety & stress.

Anti diabetic effect
Studies using Gynostemma to treat diabetic patients (type II) showed a prompt improvement of glycemia and insulin sensitivity thereby providing a basis for an effective and safe approach to treat this illness.

Anti cancer
Studies into the anti cancer activity of Gynostemma have shown a significant inhibition rate on a broad cross section of cancer cells. Intensive studies are being conducted into both its anti cancer activity and its potential as an immune protection / prophylactic agent for HIV infected patients. There is research indicating that Gynostemma may prevent cells from becoming cancerous in the first place and may disrupt cell division in existing cancer cells.

The locals call it  'Miracle Tea'
Gynostemma contains many amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are healthy to the human body, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc and more. The locals who cultivate & consume Gynostemma call it 'miracle tea'

Tea for Emperors & Kings
The first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, Qin Shi Huang who conquered all the independent states in China and established the first Chinese empire had to endure long hours of work during which he enjoyed drinking a very special tea. He ordered this special tea to be prepared for him from a herb authorised only for the use of the Emperor. The herb was, and still is, Gynostemma Pentaphyllum.



The tea is prepared to drink just like other teas. Give the pot a quick rinse with the hot water, add one teaspoon of Gynostemma / Jiaogulan Tea for each 250ml cup, pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot & let it steep for about 5 minutes or longer before serving. Milk should not be added and the tea is best when warm or hot. For radiant health, two or more cups should be enjoyed every day. Regarding storage, it is best to store the tea in an airtight jar or container after opening the packet
