Adaptogens are a special classification of herbs which
include Jiaogulan and many others. They have a long history
of use and are designated adaptogen
only if they do no harm and work only when the body requires.
Although Gynostemma Pentaphyllum has a wide range of uses
in its native areas of Asia, Jiaogulan has just begun to be
studied in the West.
We recommend Jiaogulan as a healthy, organic, herbal beverage
and in capsule form.
More human studies will need to be done to prove or disprove
all the effects of Jiaogulan on bodily systems.
Is Jiaogulan good for you?
Time tested use of Jiaogulan, says that Jiaogulan may
be good for most people. More studies will have to be done
in the West to prove it's overall effectiveness.
There's lots of Chinese influence throughout Thailand and
many people have Chinese ancestry here. The use of Jiaogulan
as a tea dates back 100's of years in China. One story says
that the Chinese were doing a census and found one province
with the most centenarians (people living over hundred years
old). When they looked into the differences between the people
of that province and others, they found that they lived in
fresh mountain air and drank spring water with Jiaogulan infused
as a beverage.
What's the connection between Ginseng and
Jiaogulan is often referred to as 5-leaf
Ginseng or poor mans Ginseng. The most popular Ginseng has
28 Saponins and Jiaogulan has 82!
A Japanese scientist found that one of Jiaogulan's saponin
molecules has the same molecular structure as a saponin molecule
More test will have to be done to see what connection exists
between Ginseng and Jiaogulan, if any.
Where does Jiaogulan come from?
Jiaogulan grows as a ground cover in hilly regions of Asia.
It likes cool weather and shade. Cultivation began in Chiang
Mai, Thailand in the 1990's and what is grown here tends to
be sweeter than some samples grown in China.
How is Jiaogulan used?
Both the vine and the leaf may be used for tea, however,
we use only the whole leaf in all our products.
The vines are ground and put to use in other products like
soap, shampoo, creams, baking goods etc.
