Jiao Gu Lan - Gynostemma
This variant is currently sold out.
Jiao Gu Lan (Jiaogulan) also known as Gynostemma Pentaphyllum is known throughout the far east as "the immortality herb". Naturally grown and caffeine free Jiao Gu Lan brews a light golden, slightly sweet tasting tea. It is often taken as a good tasting daily tonic. We like it with a little citrus added.
Although harvested in the wild and cultivated in China for centuries, it wasn't until the 1960s that this amazing herb began to be studied. Over 300 studies to document Jiao Gu Lan have been conducted in China, Japan, Germany, and the US. Its unique combination of antioxidants, trace minerals, saponins, amino acids, proteins and vitamins have led herbalists to regard it as one of the most powerful adaptogens on earth. Among reported effects are: boosting the immune system, increasing energy and endurance, assisting cancer inhibition, playing a role in regulating blood pressure and reducing blood cholesterol, improving mental functioning, and promoting health skin. There are studies showing even more far reaching health benefits.
Our Jiao Gu Lan is of the highest quality and freshness, naturally grown without chemicals to the strict European Union standards (which exceed the US standards).
