potJiaogulan for Blood Pressure Regulation and Maintenance

High blood pressure can progress to heart and blood vessel diseases, stroke, kidney disease and other complications.

Jiaogulan is an excellent natural ingredient that can help your body maintain normal-range blood pressure levels. The main active ingredients are potent antioxidants. These help inhibit cell damage (potent antioxidant properties), support and strengthen blood vessels, relax blood vessels to encourage optimal blood flow, promote blood flow in the peripheral arteries and help to maintain normal blood viscosity.

Jiaogulan targets many underlying causes of blood pressure to provide maximum support and efficient control. This is important because the underlying causes must be properly addressed.

Caution: Consult your health care provider before using any herbal product. Do not discontinue use of your prescription medication(s) without your doctor’s approval.

Natural Blood Pressure Support: 223 patients were divided into three groups. One group took Ginseng, the next took Jiaogulan and the last took the blood pressure medication, Indapamide. The effectiveness was rated at 46% for Ginseng, 82% for Jiaogulan and 93% for Indapamide. This herb may modulate blood pressure, lowering it when it is too high and raising it when it is too low.

This study may not be indicative of the effects of gynostemma pentaphyllum on all people. More human studies will need to be done to prove or disprove overall results.

potOne of our favorite, well-published Doctor's has these words of Tough-Love to say about Blood Pressure and LifeStyle

If you are one of the millions of Americans who are currently taking medication for high blood pressure, I have some good news. You might be able to reduce the amount of drugs you’re taking or gradually do away with them altogether. Now, you could be thinking, “Why would I want to stop taking blood pressure medication? It’s not very expensive and my doctor told me to take it, so what’s the problem?”

The problem is twofold: First, taking drugs may ease symptoms of high blood pressure, but it does not correct the underlying issue that is causing the problem to begin with. The real question your doctor should be asking is why do you have high blood pressure? Are you seriously stressed out or dehydrated from drinking too little water? A smoker? Are you eating prepared, processed foods that harden your arteries, making it more difficult for your heart to pump blood efficiently (not to mention robbing you of nutrients)? Or are you stubbornly insisting you have “no time” to exercise – but plenty of time to watch sports every weekend. (Sorry, but when it comes to your health, I won’t mince words.)

If you have high blood pressure (sometimes called hypertension) and you’re not willing to change your lifestyle to lower it, then you will be taking drugs – and dealing with the complications – for the rest of your life. It’s really that simple. And in most cases, it’s completely unnecessary.

potBlood Pressure Medicine Side-Effects

If your already experiencing side effects from Blood Pressure medications below, consider a hard and honest talk with your doctor about our Jiaogulan Tea and Capsules as a complimentary and/or alternative treatment for your condition.

  • Extra urination. Extra water out means more time in the bathroom. Take these medications earlier in the day and when you're not far away from a bathroom.
  • Erection problems in some men.
  • Weakness, leg cramps, or fatigue. Diuretics may decrease the body's levels of the mineral potassium, which can lead to these side effects. Certain potassium-sparing diuretics do not have this effect, however.
  • Intense and sudden foot pain,which is a symptom of gout. This is rare.
  • Asthma symptoms
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Depression
  • Erection problems
  • Insomnia and sleep problems
  • A dry, hacking cough that doesn't go away. If you have this side effect, the doctor may prescribe another type of medication.
