Benefits of Gynostemma Pentaphyllum
″Jiaogulan [is] an herb from my native southern China that I believe possesses the most wide-ranging benefits for human health and wellness of any plant yet discovered.
This may seem like a bold statement, but having studied this remarkable tonic herb for more than twenty years, I can assure you that there is strong scientific support to back up my passion for jiaogulan”. Dr. Jialiu Liu, ‘Father of Jiaogulan’
I know. You just can′t get enough of the winning fat buster. Aside from the ability for this tea to help in your weight-loss journey, it has so much more benefits that far exceed your imagination.
Just as I stated in my previous post , the gynostemma pentaphyllum plant was discovered in the early ′70s and it benefits are still being researched even till date. So far, its benefits include, but are not limited to:
1. FOR STRENGTH AND VITALITY
The adaptogenic effects of these compounds include blood pressure regulation and improving endurance and stamina. Infact, it has been called the athlete′s tea. The villagers in southern china were reported to take it in the morning for stamina and strength for work.
2. FIGHTS DIABETES
Some studies also show that it has the potential to decrease blood sugar levels and to improve insulin sensitivity, a fact that is good news for people with type 2 diabetes. Aside the chemical process, taking a cup of the winning fat buster would definitely keep you away from stuffing up on soda.
3. STRESSES STRESS (WINKS!!!)
As a double-directional (adaptogenic) herbal substance, it can protect against various stress factors and help to modulate immune functions by either boosting under-activity or suppressing over-activity, depending on which is specifically required by the individual. These effects are considerably enhanced when the herb is consumed on a regular basis over a long period of time.
In earlier research, the immuno-modulatory influence of the saponins in gynostemma was compared to the actions of ginseng and astragalus. Current studies also report the herbs ability to provide anticancer activity and usefulness for strengthening the immune system against the recurrence of tumors (a herbal chemotherapy treatment), especially for colon, lung and liver cancer.
This is generally a common property of herbal teas. It fights against the free radicals that naturally makes your body susceptible to disease and sickness thus keeping you healthy and strong (so you can use that drug cash for the movies.)
6. MOOD BOOST
This may sound wild but about 15 million americans suffer from depression and the number keeps growing. Much of this depression could be a mostly a result of stress. Instead of binging (which could adversely affect your health) or going into addictions, why not try a cup of gynostemma.
It is known to relieve stress and help the muscles relax. This was what the farmer-villagers took that made them live unusually long lives.
7. PREVENTS SKIN DAMAGE
Due to its anti-oxidant properties, it fights the free-radicals that kill skin cells (causing you to age faster). Aside from its anti-oxidizing properties, it also helps to boost blood circulation and helps the body absorb nutrients from food maximally thus enhancing the overall wellness of the body
Just as I said earlier, the benefits of gynostemma are far-reaching and as an adaptogen, it provides so much benefits that has made gynostemma pentaphyllum an intensively researched herb at the turn of the 21st century.
Gynostemma pentaphyllum is truly best…… the first among the rest and any tea that boasts of its presence (the winning fat-buster is one) is truly worth considering. Why spend your money on soda when Main – Healing Health Teas
