Effectiveness of Organic, Herbal Jiaogulan for Cholesterol Maintenance

Jiaogulan offers a host of benefits to the heart and the circulatory system. These include maintaining cholesterol levels that are already in the normal range, protection of the heart, antioxidant properties, maintaining already-normal platelet aggregation levels and more.

It may be particularly effective in maintaining triglyceride levels that are already in the normal range. Jiaogulan has been in the news in recent years for its antioxidant abilities. It also may help promote immune system strength and maintain LDL and triglyceride levels already in the normal range. Jiaogulan is in growing in popularity in China, Thailand and Japan for its ability to maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range.

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 Cholesterol Support: Jiaogulan lowers total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol (the bad stuff), and raises HDL cholesterol (the good stuff). More than 20 papers have been published on the subject with effectiveness reported as ranging from 67 to 93%. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, which may lessen the chance of a stroke or heart attack.

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.

potGet some tough-love from your doctor. Learn about Cholesterol and ask the right questions!

Your body needs cholesterol to work properly. When you have extra cholesterol in your blood, it builds up inside the walls of your arteries (blood vessels), including the ones that go to your heart. This buildup is called plaque.

Plaque narrows your arteries and slows or stops the blood flow. This can cause a heart attack, stroke, or other serious heart disease.

Below are some questions you may want to ask your doctor or nurse to help you take care of your cholesterol.

  • What is my cholesterol level? What should my cholesterol level be?
  • What are HDL ("good") cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol?
  • Does my cholesterol need to be better?
  • How often should I have my cholesterol checked?
  • What medicines am I taking to treat high cholesterol?
  • Do they have any side effects?
  • What should I do if I miss a dose?
  • Are there foods, other medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements that may change how well my cholesterol medicines work?

potCholesterol Medicine : Side-Effects of Statin Drug use over time

If your already experiencing side effects from Cholesterol 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.

Are There Side Effects of Statin Drugs?

Most people who take statin drugs tolerate them very well. But some people experience side effects. The listing below are from WebMD's official site.

The most common statin side effects include:

  • Headache
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Flushing of the skin
  • Muscle aches, tenderness, or weakness (myalgia)
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abdominal cramping or pain
  • Bloating or gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Rash

Statins also carry warnings that memory loss, mental confusion, high blood sugar, and type 2 diabetes are possible side effects. It's important to remember that statins may also interact with other medications you take. 

Which Statin Side Effects Are Serious?

Statins are associated with a few rare, but potentially serious, side effects including:

  • Myositis, inflammation of the muscles. The risk of muscle injury increases when certain other medications are taken with statins. For example, if you take a combination of a statin and a fibrate -- another cholesterol-reducing drug -- the risk of muscle damage increases greatly compared to someone who takes a statin alone.
  • Elevated levels of CPK, or creatine kinase, a muscle enzyme that when elevated, can cause muscle pain, mild inflammation, and muscle weakness. This condition, though uncommon, can take a long time to resolve.
  • Rhabdomyolysis, extreme muscle inflammation and damage. With this condition, muscles all over the body become painful and weak. The severely damaged muscles release proteins into the blood that collect in the kidneys. The kidneys can become damaged trying to eliminate a large amount of muscle breakdown caused by statin use. This can ultimately lead to kidney failure or even death. Fortunately, rhabdomyolysis is extremely rare. It occurs in less than one in 10,000 people taking statins.
